SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 5, 2014) - Flite, the multi-screen advertising company, today announced a partnership to offer Atlas customers an innovative new solution for display advertising. This partnership brings the Flite Design Studio, with its real-time content advertising features, into the Atlas ad-server solution. Flite is one of the first vendors Atlas has partnered with via a direct API integration.
This combined offering streamlines the ad creation and campaign management processes for brand advertisers. Leveraging a deep integration between the two platforms, the partnership delivers a complete turnkey solution that is unique to the industry. It provides an end-to-end workflow from creative development to trafficking and metrics.
Advertisers who use Atlas now have access to Flite's award-winning Design Studio HTML5, a web-based design tool for building HTML5 and Flash ads for both desktop and mobile. The intuitive drag-and-drop interface circumvents the need for programming, as advertisers can easily stream in articles, image and video content, social media, and more, to create real-time and content-driven interactive ads. By combining Flite's cloud-based creative tools and Atlas's ad serving and deep analytics capabilities, advertisers can now use Flite to build dynamic ads, traffic them through Atlas, and fully capitalize on robust metrics reporting across an entire campaign.
This partnership offers a unique set of capabilities to digital advertisers:
- Seamless integration between Flite's creative studio and Atlas's ad server and analytics
- Multi-screen support with HTML5 ads that work across both mobile and desktop environments
- The ability to easily stream dynamic and social content -- including videos, Facebook, Twitter, image galleries, and more -- into ads
- Live updates to ads without having to retraffic tags
- Comprehensive reporting, including deep engagement metrics
"We're excited to bring Flite's creative studio to Atlas's robust trafficking and analytics platform for advertisers," said Will Price, CEO of Flite.

We look forward to working with Flite to drive value to the advertiser, agency, and ultimately the ecosystem."
