AOL Announces Havas’ Affiperf as Charter Global Partner for ONE by AOL

AOL Platforms, a division of AOL, today announced a strategic partnership with Affiperf, Havas’ global trading desk for programmatic buying, to deliver the simplicity, efficiency and effectiveness of automation across the media group’s global footprint.

Affiperf will be a charter customer of ONE by AOL, announced earlier this year as the first global, cross-screen programmatic advertising platform for brands, agencies and publishers. Once live in 2015, ONE will enable Havas’ use of data and technology to create new, breakthrough models for media transactions, operations and investments across their countries.

Affiperf’s commitment to ONE as its primary platform builds upon the vision Havas Group and AOL share around automation. With the growth of the video RTB environment and, furthermore, of private programmatic deals, Affiperf estimates programmatic spending will grow to $35 billion as soon as 2017.

“The media business today is a chaotic endeavor and often means managing multiple teams, tools and metrics for display, mobile, video and TV, across screens. Operating through niche offerings and specialized services is not sustainable for our industry,” said Toby Gabriner, CEO of Adap.tv and ONE by AOL. “Affiperf and AOL Platforms share a vision of advertising where direct response and brand budgets can interact together and where unified, automated platforms drive economic efficiencies and media effectiveness. We are excited to be working with Affiperf to continue moving towards that reality.”

Havas and AOL have enjoyed a growing relationship around AOL’s programmatic technology brands – Adap.tv, AOP and MARKETPLACE – for some time. Most recently, the agency reiterated its commitment to AOL Platforms’ programmatic technologies at AOL’s inaugural Programmatic Upfront in September 2013.

“As audiences fragment ever more their video consumption across content and device, it is of Affiperf’s duty to account for media efficacy holistically. Relying on ONE’s technology – in concert with Artemis’ DMP – we are able to bind together in real-time audiences, inventory and creative, creating meaningful connections between brands and consumers,” said Lawrence Taylor, Global Head of Programmatic. “Our first findings have proven of a significant impact on brand capital by using pieces of ONE’s stack, but also on key tactical metrics such as viewability, view rate and engagement levels.”

ONE is being designed to be the first platform that empowers brands and agencies with a holistic view of the consumer’s journey through the marketing funnel, and makes that insight actionable, in real-time on the platform. It is currently in development, purpose-built to be completely format, screen and inventory agnostic online and offline – from video, display and TV, to tablet, desktop and mobile devices, to reserved and non-reserved inventory across any publisher or media source.
