PubMatic Rolls Out AdFlex
Because the AdFlex inventory is certified through PubMatic's platform, ad networks are able to know exactly where a campaign is running, thereby eliminating advertiser concerns about low quality or irrelevant placements. Networks can also pull in inventory from publishers that are not under their own umbrella, which is a huge advantage, according to Ajay Sravanapudi, founder, president and CEO of Lucid Media, one of the networks that will tap AdFlex.
"In addition to our own network of publishers, we need instant access to flexible inventory that meets the needs of our advertisers," Sravanapudi said. "PubMatic's AdFlex service gives us the ability to quickly scale up and scale down ad campaigns on demand, without having to manage hundreds of new publisher relationships."
