The Challenge

Traditional advertising campaign management is notoriously resource-intensive and expensive. Once live, campaign optimization is highly manual and speed-to-market drags due to complex forecasting and set-up. Brands frequently run hundreds of precisely targeted campaigns with strict demographic and geographic criteria. A large CPG company was tired of dealing with traditional campaign woes and decided to address this problem. The CPG company’s shopper marketing team partnered directly with DataXu in an attempt to realize substantial efficiency gains across all facets of its campaign management and optimization.
