Adform – European online display advertising player with a demand side platform

Digital & Media

Adform is a demand site platform, after recently introduced features in real time bidding, an action that made it become the most comprehensive player in online display advertising in Europe.

The market for so-called “real time bidding” is estimated at up to six billion dollars in the US only this year and the numbers are expected to quadruple by 2015.

Real time bidding has transformed the previous industry standard media buying process; purchasing is performed automatically, based on an exact budget and upon the advertiser’s target audience.

Without having contact with the media where the ads are bought, media agencies and advertisers are able to conduct their insertions via the online display platform Adform, where  everything happens in real time as on a stock market, ensuring that prices and objectives are 100% up-to-date.

Adform’s method also offers time-saving benefits, eliminating media contacts or negotiations related to the price.

We have an extremely strong established position in Scandinavia and, with our take on real time bidding, we have our sights firmly set on the rest of the European market

Our competitors typically offer a platform that only handles media purchases (…) We have a unique platform that supports the entire process of online display advertising from media planning and buying to optimization and reporting. We will do our utmost to save our clients both time and money
