An Inside Look at Amobee’s Outlook, One Year Post-Turn Acquisition

This time last year, Amobee completed its acquisition of Turn. One of the most high-profile acquisitions of the year, industry insiders looked on with interest as we integrated two of the most powerful marketing technology companies as a wholly owned subsidiary of Singtel, one of the largest telcos in the world. 

Hundreds of employees united to make the combined company a reality, operating under the singular premise of becoming ‘One Amobee.’ One year later, the dust has settled and the Amobee machine is humming with pervasive cohesion.

Integration of Capabilities

One of the most crucial components of the acquisition was consolidating the Amobee and Turn capabilities into one comprehensive platform. A daunting task, our executive leadership team developed a strategic plan for integration to achieve the overall vision of providing an “end-to-end stack.” The bold undertaking included a new Amobee Marketing Platform to provide ambitious marketers with a technology partner that delivers control along the entire consumer journey.

The actions required to realize a unified Amobee were accomplished through relentless execution. The resulting platform is one that delivers on the following key advantages for marketers:

  • Global scale and reach: Marketing in the digital era requires effective, relevant advertising in any market with confidence

  • Innovative technology: An end-to-end stack with advanced programmatic technology, patents across data, programmatic media and analytics.

  • Trusted advice: Seasoned client service advisors to give the unbiased guidance marketers need

  • Unique data: The ability to activate first-party data across all of our media channels, as well as take advantage of our valuable, differentiated data

  • Actionable insights: The insights to activate the right audience and the right time all on one platform

Individually, each of these are powerful, but together they represent a formidable presence in the marketing technology industry that mark the true success of the acquisition.

How Amobee Stacks Up

Today, Amobee provides the leading brands and agencies that do business with us with an end-to-end digital marketing platform, empowering  marketers with the insights to better understand and reach their customers, and the capabilities to activate those insights, all in one place.

We’ve made huge technological advances on the product, data science and engineering side with the development and release of the following features into our platform:

  • Single Sign-On - integrated the Amobee Marketing Platform and Amobee Social Media Management Platform to develop common reporting across channels and provide access to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and SnapChat

  • Precision Targeting - empowers advertisers and their agencies to leverage Amobee’s proprietary semantic engine to activate either custom or pre-packaged Brand Intelligence segments directly in the Amobee platform

  • Multi-Goal Video Algorithm - video optimization technology enables marketers to improve video viewability rates while decreasing the manual effort to manage campaigns and automate multiple KPIs targets simultaneously to enhance performance and efficiency

  • Sales Accelerator - connects digital ad impressions to offline purchase data while a campaign is still running, so marketers can optimize in-flight online advertising campaigns to more effectively reach consumers and drive sales

  • Custom Bid Optimization - allows marketers to tailor their bid strategies against the data signals that matter most to them

  • Programmatic Guaranteed - improves activation of advertiser's premium direct deals by bringing the data-driven capabilities of programmatic to the trusted publisher deals of our clients

  • Always On Deals - ability to curate deals on behalf of platform customers and make unique deal IDs available platform-wide

It’s this ability to provide actionable insights and solutions that uniquely positions Amobee to help marketers take control of their message across the entire consumer journey. The promise of programmatic technology is not just about more efficient media buys, but powerful insights that help marketers drive more business.
