DataXu Onboards More Than Two Dozen New Global Inventory Sources

New Inventory Sources Offers Increased Coverage in APAC & EU, All Backed by the 97% Fraud-Free Guarantee

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jul 31, 2015) - DataXu, a leading provider of programmatic marketing software, today announced the addition of more than two dozen new media inventory sources available to its customers globally, offering a mix of new inventory for emerging markets, as well as niche and premium sources.

These new inventory sources represent an increase in available inventory to DataXu customers, and show a significant investment in emerging channels, global scale and quality. DataXu is scaling with market needs to further enhance fast growing channels such as mobile and video, as well as areas like premium inventory via private exchanges (deal-ID). Focusing on continued global expansion efforts allows DataXu to provide even more scale to global customers in key regions like Europe and Asia.

"As consumers continue to access digital content across multiple devices, partnerships with global providers of premium, mobile and video inventory are increasingly important to achieve brand goals," said David Shapiro, VP of Corporate and Business Development, DataXu. "By integrating with these new partners, we're improving our global reach for customers in emerging regions and further delivering on our promise of true marketing ROI to our customers around the world."

As with all DataXu inventory, these new sources are backed-up by the industry's only 97% Fraud-Free Guarantee as part of DataXu's commitment to quality and transparency.

These new inventory sources represent a variety of country and channel-specific support. Some notable additions include:

  • Centro Brand Exchange - the largest private advertising marketplace comprised of quality sites with original content for brand advertisers and programmatic buyers.
  • iBILLBOARD - Ad Serving and RTB technology provider and operator of premium SSP, focused on Central and Eastern European area.
