Sell, execute and bill through a single system.
Your advertising business needs a solid foundation in order to grow. Technologies change, but the core of your business remains the same. Every publisher needs a system that allows them to connect all of their supply- and demand-side technologies to sell, execute, and bill through a single system.
Operative has spent the last decade building that foundation with Operative.One™
Operative pushes just the data you need to optimize inventory value at every step between sale and delivery. A streamlined data flow means more control, and more control means higher inventory value to sustain profit across a wider landscape of demand channels.
Aggregate your inventory to generate more revenue. Everything in your arsenal gets standardized into a product catalog, allowing your sellers to quickly bundle and sell multimedia packages, increase inventory value, and reduce unsold inventory — all within the pricing controls that you set.
When all of your business and delivery data is in one place, the patterns start to make sense. Understanding the bigger picture of your revenue streams allows you to make adjustments on the fly, correcting under-performance and yielding more from your inventory.
Too many ad traffickers spend their time in manual processes moving data from point A to point B. Operative saves your company around 50% of its ad ops spend by automating those processes, allowing traffickers to move campaigns from sale to delivery faster, and with greater accuracy.
If finance doesn’t have a single view of what was sold and what was delivered, billing becomes a guessing game. We give finance up-to-date reporting on sales and delivery data, which allows them to invoice on actual campaign performance numbers, and cut billing time in half.
Operative organizes our inventory in a product catalog, which sellers use to create custom opportunities. This has the biggest impact to our bottom line.Bill Murray, Chief Business Operations Officer, Scripps Networks Interactive
