Mediaocean and ADstruc Announce Integrated OOH Platform
Mediaocean and ADstruc form partnership to provide the first fully integrated ad management solution for the outdoor advertising industry.
ADstruc, the leading planning and buying platform for the outdoor advertising industry, and Mediaocean, the largest independent advertising technology company, with annual billings over $130 billion, partnered to provide the first fully integrated OOH platform for advertising agencies.
By integrating ADstruc’s platform with Mediaocean’s ad management system, Prisma, agencies will now be able to simplify the media buying process by automating their OOH billing process as well as purchase and measure multiple advertising mediums in a single environment. The integration will also enable agencies to leverage their historical purchasing data in Prisma and ADstruc (e.g., price, location, audience, etc.) to make better planning and buying decisions for future campaigns. Agencies have shown particular interest in being able to utilize past campaign data to better evaluate against proposed inventory. The ability to effectively leverage this data is a critical step forward for the outdoor advertising industry.
Ray Rotolo, COO of Posterscope, noted: “ADstruc & Mediaocean’s integration is the first step toward automating transactional processes. It enables us to draw meaningful insights that help us provide value in terms most relevant to our clients. I’m most excited because this paves the way for us to leverage data as an organizational asset. By allowing us to deliver fully informed operational excellence and business intelligence, it complements our superior understanding of consumers and the OOH space.”
John Laramie, CEO of ADstruc, said of the partnership: “Our core focus is enabling agencies to buy smarter and more efficiently by having everything they need, from planning, to RFP management, to buying, to processing payments in one environment. This partnership provides the necessary architecture agencies and holding companies need to operate entirely in one system. We are proud to work with Mediaocean to provide the most efficient end-to-end solution for the outdoor advertising industry.”
Fraser Woollard, VP of Business Development, Mediaocean, added: “Mediaocean promotes integration with technology partners who share our vision of truly efficient, scalable media planning and buying. The integration of ADstruc with Mediaocean’s Prisma fits perfectly within that philosophy. Connecting our systems brings digital intelligence to every form of out-of-home media–that’s a huge step ahead for the industry, and a tremendous benefit to agencies looking to push the boundaries of what OOH agencies can achieve for brands.”

ADstruc & Telmar Integration
Telmar Information Services Corp., a world leading supplier of advertising media systems, announced the release and immediate availability of its TOPS(TM) out-of-home (OOH) planning software with direct seamless link to the ADstruc media buying platform, providing a complete end-to-end, planning to buying solution for advertising agencies and media sellers.
The TOPS OOH planning system is the leading multi-market, multi-media analysis system for OOH media ratings measured by the Traffic Audit Bureau for Media Inc. (TAB) for both detailed site level and market average media delivery evaluations.
ADstruc provides a fully integrated set of tools for connecting media planners with the most extensive network of out-of-home inventory. These tools streamline the RFP workflow and enable a more efficient purchase process across multiple operators. The ADstruc integration incorporates the TOPS media plan goals into an RFP, which is submitted directly to OOH operators without ever leaving TOPS System. As operators respond with proposals to the RFP, ADstruc’s technology automatically organizes the proposals and presents them to the buyer in an interactive and unified online proposal. Agencies can upload custom data sets and historical campaign data, along with ADstruc’s social, mobile and census data, to better analyze proposed inventory through the use of heat maps. These tools enable OOH campaigns to be planned and executed in the most data driven and effective way possible.
"ADstruc provides a very powerful suite of tools for media buyers and media sellers," said Telmar President Corey Panno. "The integration of our OOH planning software with the ADstruc platform automates and eliminates the most cumbersome aspects of the traditional RFP process, creating greater efficiency for OOH buying specialists and allowing easy access to the OOH buying process for any media planner — especially those who are new to evaluating OOH as part of their strategic plans."
"We are excited to be the first to release this critical workflow solution for the Out-of-Home industry," said ADstruc CEO John Laramie. "As the industry continues to evolve and the demand for more targeted audience-based buying increases, the need for an integrated planning and buying system becomes more and more important."
