The new joint service from CoreMedia and PremiumMedia360 address these issues by providing a direct connection from CoreDirect to any sell-side TV advertising system.
FREMONT, CA: PremiumMedia360, the advertising data automation firm, and CoreMedia Systems, the provider of CoreDirect, the advertising industry's most extensively used performance monitoring software, today launched a new integrated product that eliminates substantial hurdles for direct marketers.Direct response marketers may now use CoreDirect software to automatically transmit media orders to networks, removing the requirement to email orders and confirm receipt while also providing visibility into order status. The service expands on cooperation launched earlier this year between CoreDirect and PremiumMedia360. The company enables direct response buyers to get pre- and post-log files (vital records of planned and actual ad airings) within CoreDirect in the initial phase of their relationship.
Although comparable electronic ordering solutions were accessible in the broad advertising sector for years, CoreMedia and PM360's current product is the first direct response industry. Direct marketers typically deliver orders to sellers via email with a PDF attachment, which sales teams must copy out of their sell-side platforms.Manual data entry is prone to bottlenecks & inaccuracies, resulting in lost orders and advertisements that do not run on time. Performance marketers, whose industry is defined by large ad loads, quick turnaround, and clear accountability, are particularly concerned about data gaps and unreliability issues.While similar computerized ordering solutions have been available in the advertising industry for years, CoreMedia and PM360's current offering is a first in the direct response market. Direct marketers provide orders to sellers in the form of a PDF attachment, which sales teams must copy from their sell-side systems.
