After an extensive training period, all ADman employee's will be adopting the AcuityAds brand name and providing clients with access to AcuityAds' full technology stack.
"It has taken us the past year to prepare for our platform launch in Spain and Latin America," said Seraj Bharwani, Chief Strategy Officer at AcuityAds. "Given GDPR requirements for consumer privacy and data usage, we have thoroughly assessed our audience targeting capabilities before offering it to advertisers in this region."
While the Company began major efforts to engage existing ADman customers across Latin America earlier this year, the past week marked an important kickoff for the entire group, including Spain and all Latin America countries.
"Use of decision science technology with live, real-time, consumer propensity data and unique measurement capabilities will bring significant incremental impact and efficiency to advertisers in the Hispanic regions," Bharwani continued.
