CoreMedia and WideOrbit Integrate to Deliver
Automated Long-Form Buying Process
Will Save Time and Increase Accuracy for Long-Form TV Buyers
Fairfield, NJ, May 14, 2012—In June, CoreMedia Systems, Inc. will integrate its direct response campaign management system, CoreDirect, with WO Central, WideOrbit’s online ad marketplace that directly connects media buyers and sellers, making it much easier for advertisers and agencies to purchase long form TV commercial time. CoreDirect is the nation’s most widely used direct response media management software.
With this new, integrated, automated process, all long form direct response buy information is transferred automatically from WO Central to CoreDirect, eliminating manual entry. In addition to new buys, revisions to existing buys made in WO Central, such as rate changes or cancellations, are automatically updated and tracked in CoreDirect, eliminating steps in the accounting audit process. Data can be delivered on a scheduled transfer or on demand ensuring both buyer and seller have the most up to date information.
“The upcoming integration with Wide Orbit is another enhancement to CoreDirect that will greatly improve accuracy and efficiency for our clients,” said Glenn DeKraker, CoreMedia CEO. “By eliminating the manual entry of information, CoreDirect users can spend more time analyzing and optimizing their buys.”
“We are excited to bring WO Central’s direct, two-way connection between advertising buyers and sellers to Core’s thousand-strong user base,” said Eric R. Mathewson, Founder and CEO of WideOrbit.
Long-form media, or infomercials, consist of TV airings of 30 minutes or more. CoreDirect also electronically facilitates the planning, purchase and analysis of short-form direct response TV inventory.
CoreMedia Systems, Inc. develops and supports CoreDirect, the industry’s most widely used direct response media management software. The system is used by more than 100 direct response agencies and marketers to plan, buy, manage, measure and optimize direct response media campaigns. Corporate Web site: www.coremedia-systems.com
