Partnership allows Horizon to predict device identifiers of individual consumers in programmatic environments with unprecedented accuracy

This, coupled with the sizable depth, reach and precision of our data, has allowed us to partner more closely with Horizon Media to help their clients reach their desired audiences more effectively while pushing the boundaries of innovation.

Horizon Media, the largest and fastest growing privately held media services agency in the world, is pleased to announce that its programmatic buying operation, HX, has selected Adbrain, a global provider of intelligent cross-device technology solutions, as its primary cross-device partner. The partnership allows HX to use cross-device ID mapping in any programmatic platform across Horizon’s network. This partnership is the result of a series of successful client beta tests utilizing Adbrain’s data in 2016.

“With HX, we provide complete clarity into the market and across all pricing and campaign activity, while also driving quick delivery of programmatic’s best offerings for clients,” said Adam Heimlich, SVP, Managing Director, Programmatic, HX. “Intelligent technologies continue to rapidly advance, and HX’s agile approach allows us to easily integrate best-in-breed programmatic solutions such as Adbrain’s cross-device technology to deliver efficiencies and further improve ROI for our clients.”

The Adbrain Identity Platform uses patented algorithms to accurately predict device identifiers of anonymous individual consumers. The technology allows Horizon’s clients to anonymously recognize consumers across all the devices they use and approach the right consumers with a personalized and consistent story.

“Most, if not all consumers are choosing to use multiple devices, making it challenging for our clients to identify and interact with their consumers intelligently and efficiently," said Trevor Mengel, HX’s Director of Product. “We had great results during our cross-device campaign testing period with Adbrain, resulting in further optimized programmatic plans and a better ROI for our clients.”

Adbrain is the only cross-device data partner to focus exclusively on data sales. This razor-sharp focus has made its data over 95% accurate when measured by a 3rd party. Adbrain also has one of the largest reaches in the U.S., with 80% of smartphones matched to other devices.        

"Adbrain benefits from a unique position in the market, thanks to our media-agnostic, tech-focused approach,” said Gareth Davies, CEO, Adbrain. “This, coupled with the sizable depth, reach and precision of our data, has allowed us to partner more closely with Horizon Media to help their clients reach their desired audiences more effectively while pushing the boundaries of innovation.”

Led by Horizon’s Adam Heimlich, SVP, Managing Director, Programmatic, HX, is the only fully transparent trading desk within an agency. Built on the tenets of transparency and trust, HX reduces the cost structure and generates significantly increased value for the agency’s clients by delivering more working dollars to active media. Most recently, HX partnered with independent programmatic intelligence company Ad/Fin to become the first programmatic trading desk to embrace independent, third-party verification of its programmatic transactions at the impression level, generating more efficient targeting and ROI.
