Oxagile: “The mission of the platform our client had in mind was to take ad inventory buying and selling to the next level.”

To gather broadcasters and advertisers together in one place and automate TV inventory selling, we, together with the client, a data-driven solutions provider, challenged ourselves to deliver an end-to-end AdTech marketplace for seamless ad inventory management, including advertising offering generation, order processing, and ad campaign performance monitoring.

Multi-tier architecture

AdTech platform designed to bring broadcasters and advertisers together

As Oxagile has over 15 years of experience in all things online video and proven expertise in delivering AdTech software projects, our team made the most of this knowledge when the client involved us in the solution development.
