24/7 Real Media Introduces Open AdStream for Vertical Network Management

NEW YORK – August 27, 2008 – 24/7 Real Media Inc., the leading global digital marketing company, today introduced a new application for its Open AdStream® ad management platform to provide more control for vertical network owners across every site they operate. Open AdStream can be used for total network management, with the tools and features needed to enable strong network and revenue growth.

Open AdStream provides effective internal controls that enable the efficient management of affiliate sites, offering real-time updates on campaign status and greater control and transparency for both vertical network owners and publishers, for effective ad delivery. Network managers at companies such as Hola Networks, Godengo and United Online Media Group are now taking advantage of Open AdStream’s capabilities for this purpose.

“We use Open AdStream to consolidate our properties and our 50 million members into a single audience,” said Jeremy Helfand, Executive Vice President and Chief Sales Officer, United Online Media Group. “Its intuitive technology allows us to run individual site advertising programs while maintaining an effective system for cross-property buys. With Open AdStream, we can access scheduling, targeting, optimization, and reporting capabilities uniquely suited to our properties.”

Affiliate sites can also use Open AdStream to determine which advertisements are delivered to their Web pages, with robust information fields and controls to help categorize and measure they payout. They have the ability to accept and decline ads with ease, see any given report regardless of location, and gain access to specific subsets of information. Ultimately this efficiency enables the owner to focus resources and energy on running a successful network and gaining revenue.

Vertical networks can also utilize the recently introduced MultiSite feature, which provides access controls to streamline management for networks with decentralized trafficking.

“As the most comprehensive ad management system available today, using Open AdStream for vertical network management provides an enormous benefit to vertical network owners and Web site publishers looking for enhanced control and flexibility over their sites,” said Nicolle Pangis, Vice President, Product Management, Global Media and Technology for 24/7 Real Media, Inc. “Open AdStream gives network operators an all-in-one tool for managing revenue and combining feature sets to operate their business more effectively.”
