Kantar Media's SRDS.com Now Provides Buyers with Access to Private Marketplace Inventory from Rubicon Project's Publisher and Mobile Application Developer Customers

Kantar Media today announced that private marketplace inventory from Rubicon Project’s publisher and mobile application developer customers is now live in its media planning platform at SRDS.com. Already, 20 of Rubicon Project’s customers have made their seasonal and topical inventory packages available through the tool.

The addition of this inventory enables brand planners to use SRDS.com as the single interface to discover, evaluate and connect with publishers and mobile app developers who sell their digital advertising inventory programmatically, both through automated guaranteed platforms and private marketplaces.

“By integrating private marketplace inventory from Rubicon Project into our platform, buyers have a centralized way to view, compare and purchase programmatic inventory from top publishers and mobile app developers," said Dina Srinivasan, SRDS Managing Director of Emerging Media, Kantar Media. “It also gives media sellers the ability to expose their inventory packages to 15,000 media and marketing decision makers from hundreds of agencies, including the top four agency holding companies. Through this functionality, we are enhancing the ways in which the buyers and sellers of digital media connect.”

“We are excited to be working with Kantar Media on the SRDS platform,” said Kaylie Smith, Head of Seller Cloud. “SRDS is a way for us to bring additional buyers to our customers, ensuring that they get the greatest possible return on their inventory.”

Kantar Media’s programmatic functionality launched with inventory and data from automated guaranteed platforms earlier this year. With the addition of private marketplace inventory from Rubicon Project, the programmatic data in SRDS.com reinforces how clients can use Kantar Media as the top resource for digital insights in ad intelligence and now, programmatic buying. The number of publishers, mobile app developers and amount of inventory live in SRDS.com will continue to rise as more third-party buy-channels are integrated into the database.

Kantar Media’s subscription-only media planning platform, SRDS.com, provides essential data on more than 125,000 media brands, including digital, B2B publications, consumer magazines, direct marketing, newspapers, out-of-home media, radio, TV/cable and more. Kantar Media, a leader in ad intelligence in the U.S., is rapidly expanding its overall digital footprint, recently launching online video and mobile ad tracking.
