The key to effective optimizations is the access to reliable real-time analytics and intelligent data analysis. With EXADS, you can create customized dashboards that give you the information you need straight away.
Compiling granular reports can be a daunting task and sometimes impossible! However, we have you covered. EXADS lets you choose from over 25 dimensions, 50 metrics and 25 filters, so you can see all the details you need.
Analyzing data can be time consuming, so we try to help our users save time however we can. This is why we introduced a feature that allows you to save your filter sets for future access.
Another feature that is very beneficial whether you are managing high numbers of advertisers and publishers, or you are running a small project, is the ability to schedule reports.
As well as having extensive analytics and statistics capabilities, EXADS also supports third party integrations which are often required by large clients.
The ideal ad platform must have automation tools that will help its users save time while also working to maximize their ROI.
At EXADS, we have a range of automatic optimization features, starting with the Bidder. This feature intelligently adjusts the bid of the advertiser for ad zones according to how many conversions are received, and blocks those ad zones that don’t convert.
The user can also use rules to block under-performing browsers, countries, devices, languages, mobile carriers, operating systems, sites, and zones automatically according to rules set within the Bidding Algorithm. Moreover, the number of extra rules is unlimited, so you can keep adding more rules to the algorithm to further fine-tune the automation.
EXADS also provides tools to optimize Ad Variations and Landing Pages which allow the advertiser to select from several traffic distribution algorithms. This will ensure that the best performing Landing Page or ad variation will always receive the most traffic.
