Formetco recently announced the successful integration of its new enterprise software F360 CMS with the Adomni Demand Side Platform (DSP). IBO’s nationwide inventory of digital screens is now available to Adomni’s advertiser base, including national brands, agencies and hyperlocal buyers. With F360, independent operators can access a wide array of new buyers that would be difficult to reach.
Evolving from the IBO Fusion initiative, F360 allows multiple DSPs to connect and compete to drive new programmatic revenue. Additionally, operators can take advantage of modern tools and technology that in the past has been cost prohibitive. This new offering is expected to drive up operator revenues while at the same time giving them access to the IBO COOP Marketplace.
Formetco’s VP of Sales, Jock Gibb said, “Opening up the tools to make OOH easy to buy is not only good for the independent operators, but the entire OOH industry. We think the days of an operator using one player dedicated to one buying platform (which excludes most all others) is a thing of the past.”
“We are proud to expand our relationship with the Formetco team to help their operators increase fill rates and drive new revenue,” said Jonathan Gudai, CEO of Adomni. “With our Audience IQ technology, billboard operators can now sell their OOH inventory by audience segments, not just by location. With this new capability, we believe that there will be a substantial increase in the number of OOH buyers, as the digital media landscape and the world of roadside billboards come together.”
Chris Cowlbeck, IBOUSA General Manager, said “IBO is excited about the Formetco and Adomni leadership making the IBO COOP Marketplace available via their platforms thus allowing operators to access buyers simultaneously and increase profitability. Formetco and Adomni understand the benefits and the rewards and IBO fully supports their continued efforts.”
