Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) February 08, 2016
Review & Approval SaaS provider, ConceptShare, announces official launch HTML5 file support for Online Proofing, Review & Approval, and Creative Production Measurement to help internet advertising agencies and consumer brands with the shift from Flash to HTML5 Ads.
As of September 2015, both Google and Amazon pulled support for Flash ads on their ad networks. In the months leading up to these changes, advertisers, agencies, publishers, and ad-servers were encouraged to adapt and ensure they were ready to create and produce rich-media using HTML5 and weaning off of Flash. Even the interactive advertising bureau (IAB) updated their Display Creative Guidelines - an overhaul that fully embraced HTML5.
The shift to HTML5 hasn’t happened without its challenges - not only does HTML5 ad production require a different skill set than a Flash ad, but the files are heavier, and producing HTML5 ads can take up to 3X longer than their Flash counterparts. For advertisers and agencies, this can mean delays in production, and negative impacts on cost per asset.
ConceptShare's support of HTML5 Files means that agencies and in-house creative teams can:
- Upload, share, and get feedback on HTML5 files
- Request feedback and/or approval of HTML5 banner ads.
- Reviewers can markup the ad, provide feedback, and approve or reject the ad while maintaining optimized review cycles.
Luc Labadie, CIO of Progious, said "As agencies make the necessary changes to move from Flash to HTML5 for web banners, it’s critical that the tools we use in creative production can support these changes too - this is especially important in managing feedback, and review & approval. When you produce thousands of banner ads for a single campaign, you need to be able to optimize the review and approval cycle with your client. This is why including HTML5 support in ConceptShare is so important to us.”
