Business challenge

An American startup with ambitious goals, wanted to develop a sophisticated system for digital advertising that would empower premium online publishers to sell their ad inventory smarter and maximize the advertising yield.

From the project outset, the client made an all-important decision to partner with Oxagile for front-end/UI development and comprehensive Quality Assurance — a decision that, in the long run, proved to be a major success factor for the entire endeavor.

Oxagile’s differentiators

From the beginning, Oxagile quickly proved its solid ability to work remotely with no hassles or downtime. Via Skype, email, and other means, both teams were able to collaborate smoothly and efficiently, despite the time zone difference and only three overlapping working hours. Lead engineers flew to New York on a number of occasions, whenever the situation demanded it.

A dedicated issue and project tracking system was put in place to coordinate work with the US team, which contributed to the smooth and effective way project communication was handled.

Benefits of the delivered solution

The resulting system is a highly sophisticated yield optimization platform for top online publishers that provides clients with expertise and technology to capture new revenue streams, control how they sell every impression, protect their data and brand, and more.

The system effortlessly handled huge amounts of data and processed approximately 40 billion transactions per month at the time.

  • Sophisticated real-time yield optimization capabilities
  • Dependable channel conflict avoidance

  • I look forward to working with them again in the future!

    The Oxagile team was essential to the success of Admeld. I’ve always been impressed by their engineering skills as well as their ability to suggest alternatives or give hard problems a fresh perspective.

    They really care about their work and that was clear every day. It never felt like we were working with a “vendor”, Oxagile was part of our team. I look forward to working with them again in the future.
