KPMG in India and Infomo today announced their alliance to develop digital advertising solutions for enterprises and large publishers utilizing the InfomoR3- a sell-side ad tech platform.
InfomoR3 is an ecosystem platform designed for sell-side stakeholders in the digital marketing value chain. It enables sell-side stakeholders to consolidate inventory and present advertisers, agencies, and the SME sector a direct gateway to advertise to known subscribers & consumers. In doing so, large publishers offer advertisers and agencies the most optimized supply path for the delivery of advertisements.
The seller-controlled digital marketing value chain powered by KPMG in India – Infomo solution provides a compelling alternative to the programmatic ecosystem. It allows large publishers, enterprises, and telecom carriers to offer advertisers customizable digital marketing services providing performance marketing opportunities, ensuring:
- Reach to a known audience
- Precise targeting of a known audience
- Measurable engagement and interactions.
The current programmatic digital marketing value chain is currently plagued by ad-fraud and privacy issues (user data abuse). The KPMG in India – Infomo solution transfers total control back to the sell-side stakeholders and is a transparent real time alternative to advertisers and agencies.
In addition to providing direct access to advertise, the KPMG in India – Infomo solution enables telecom carriers, enterprises, and large publishers to offer advertisers and agencies multiple innovative options to customize their advertisements to deliver 360o rich media campaigns to attract the attention of targeted users from within a known customer base.
The commercial model is designed to ensure sell-side stakeholders get better ROI compared to delivery of standard ads sourced from the existing programmatic ads with all ad-technology expenses included in the pay-on-performance based revenue share arrangements. It also provides telecom carriers, enterprises, and large publishers customizable options to initiate user engagements leveraging the combined power of content, known consumer insights, user segment profiles, location, time, and device usage using online and offline channels.
The solution also gives a unique opportunity to expand the digital marketing reach to Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) who so far have not been active participants in the digital marketing paradigm. The platform’s do-it-yourself interface allows SMEs to create their own content and reach out to targeted cohorts.
