NEW YORK – AOL today announced that ADTECH will provide ad-serving capabilities for React2Media, a leading online advertising network offering a complete suite of interactive marketing opportunities to media agencies, direct advertisers and publishers. A leading provider of ad-serving technology, ADTECH (http://www.adtechus.com) is an independently operated unit within AOL’s Platform-A digital advertising business.
React2Media will utilize ADTECH’s HeliosIQ solution to provide ad-serving for its network of more than 150 exclusive Web sites, including the QuikZilla search portal and CookingTown.com. The React2Media migration follows ADTECH’s major ad-serving deal with Gannett Co., Inc., which includes all of Gannett’s local newspaper Web sites, digital properties for all of Gannett’s 19 local broadcast markets and USATODAY.com – one of the most popular national news sites on the Web. The deal marked ADTECH’s U.S. debut as Platform-A’s ad-serving unit.
“With the future of digital advertising unfolding, and TV and the Internet increasingly becoming indistinguishable, React2Media has been able to identify and surpass some of the greatest hurdles in the industry,” said Dirk Freytag, CEO of ADTECH. “Our goal in bringing ADTECH’s robust, scalable technology to React2Media is to help them further this impressive progress in the current advertising climate, as well as into the future.”
“After reviewing all of the current ad servers in the marketplace, selecting ADTECH was an easy decision because of their distinctive array of mobile and display ad-serving capabilities,” said Alex Shaller, CEO of React2Media. “Based upon our business model and ADTECH’s ability to integrate our technologies, this was the best solution to service both publishers and advertisers alike.”
