Dentsu Programmatic has launched its strategic programmatic supply solution ‘Dentsu Curate’ in India. A first-of-its-kind service in the market, Dentsu Curate enables advertisers to target premium and brand-safe inventory, allowing them to bring better performance leading to high operational efficiency for all campaigns. It also aims to improve media quality by consolidating supply and involving deeper integrations with tech platforms and data partners.
Dentsu Curate, which was first introduced in APAC, is built on dentsu international’s global clean supply initiative. The programmatic supply solution guides advertisers in buying digital inventory across media on behalf of dentsu X, Carat, and iProspect in a brand-safe and fraud-free environment through robust evaluation mechanisms, with industry-leading partnerships offering high-quality premium supply coupled with Supply Path Optimization modeling.
For instance, today, advertisers have an opportunity to buy multiple DSPs (Demand Side Platforms) that are connected to several SSPs (Supply Side Platforms). This certainly gives them reach to all the channels and publishers in the region. However, reaching out to the addressable audiences on brand-safe publishers and avoiding unnecessary cost inflation is a challenge. Nonetheless, through Dentsu Curate, clients can once again get control by building up their bespoke marketplace across Display, Mobile, CTV, DOOH, and native. India’s fragmented landscape in OTT and growing CTV as with this solution we can curate across Publishers but drive a certain campaign objective of Video or Viewability. It allows them the flexibility to have control across their inventory via multiple parameters (third-party audiences, context, inventory type, etc.).
