April 13, 2016 : Appirio leverages Salesforce's social, mobile, cloud, and data science technologies to enable digital media publishers to serve their customers better
Indianapolis, IN – April 13, 2016 – Appirio, a global cloud services company that creates next generation Worker and Customer Experiences, today announced the release of Premium Digital Ad Sales, a Salesforce Fullforce Solution for Media Services. The new offering combines Salesforce's social, mobile, cloud, and data science technologies with Appirio's implementation and crowdsourcing services expertise to help digital media publishers and agencies work faster, smarter, and more collaboratively with advertising customers.
Digital media continues to disrupt traditional media channels such as print, television, and radio. Publishers are now being asked to consolidate and bundle the ad buying process and to show advertisers and their agencies positive results. Addressing this industry shift, Premium Digital Ad Sales enables publishers to optimize the ad sales cycle, streamline content subscription and delivery, maximize the use of current inventory, and offer targeted ad pricing and yield management. Sales teams can now work through opportunities ? from proposal and inventory availability to campaign performance and analytics ? completely from within Salesforce. Work is enhanced with live integrations to ad servers and stronger community collaborations.
Appirio's services platform offers customers personalized experiences by utilizing the Appirio Asset Library, a repository of reusable code solutions and components; specialized skills from hundreds of Salesforce implementations; and experts from a global crowdsourcing community of nearly one million designers, developers, and data scientists. This proven approach delivers innovative results in days and weeks, not years.
