CoreMedia and PremiumMedia360 Partner to Automate Direct Response Agency — Seller Interactions
First-of-its-kind integration and partnership brings automation solutions to the unique operational complexities of direct response.
New York, NY, DATE. CoreMedia Systems, the developer of CoreDirect, the advertising industry’s most widely used performance management software, and PremiumMedia360, the advertising data automation company, have formed a new partnership that enables direct response agencies to automate seller interactions across broadcast media. The partnership will create the first at-scale automation of its kind available from within media agency management software.
The partnership integrates CoreDirect with PremiumMedia360’s CLIR suite of products that automate data transmission and reconciliation. In the partnership’s first phase – now live – CoreDirect is integrated with PremiumMedia360’s CLIR Logs, enabling direct response buyers to automatically receive pre- and post-log files (critical records of scheduled and actual ad airings) within the CoreDirect system.
The partnership serves to solve longstanding operational hurdles facing agencies that specialize in direct response—a procedurally complex field which is often “last-minute” by design, and involves frequent order revisions. Compounding these complexities are myriad manual processes that increase the chance of bottlenecks and lost information, and that also pose challenges to working across new format standards including TIP. Because PremiumMedia360 sits between agency systems and sellers to immediately “translate” data agnostically across formats, it is uniquely positioned to resolve these issues.
“CoreMedia is in the business of maximizing efficiency and data accessibility for direct response agencies,” said Kevin Gaffney, EVP, Product Strategy for CoreMedia. “This partnership aligns completely with that goal, and PremiumMedia360, a company straddling both buy and sell sides of the industry, is the perfect partner to help us push that vision forward.”
Added Cordie De Pascale, Chief Strategy Officer of PremiumMedia360: “As a former direct response buyer, I know firsthand the burdens and costs direct agencies face as they manually manage interactions across scores of media partners and buys. We are thrilled to work with CoreMedia to automate those interactions, unleashing enormous potential for direct agencies and their teams alike.”
