CHICAGO, July 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Centro (), a provider of enterprise-class software for digital advertising, today announced an integration of its Basis software platform with Advantage Software ().

“Advantage and Centro share a mission to build one of the most sophisticated software ecosystems for agencies and advertisers,” said Ellen Coulter, President of Advantage Software. “We admire Centro’s foresight in creating technology that elegantly blends together the day-to-day tasks of media professionals and naturally integrates with agencies’ existing software infrastructures.”

Advantage’s AQUA operations and finance software is widely used among advertising and media organizations. It has strong adoption among regional, independent agencies. Advantage’s 650+ customers can easily use Basis to improve digital media-buying and campaign performance while reducing the time needed for monthly reconciliation and billing.

The Basis technology platform empowers agencies with accurate, real-time reporting available on-demand because it tracks media delivery data daily and verifies it with contracts, no matter the buying tactic -- fixed CPMs or dynamic bid pricing. A short series of clicks generates the files for upload to AQUA, pre-programmed with specific codes to associate line items with appropriate clients and vendors.

Basis streamlines the reconciliation of dynamic pricing common to programmatic advertising because delivery reports are generated in real-time within the system. This gives campaign teams the most accurate reflection of what has been delivered by publishers, whether it’s a direct-buy or through real-time bidding channels. Agencies that outsource programmatic buying to different partners can also manage these vendors within Basis with the option to buy with a fixed or dynamic CPM. Agency media teams benefit by funneling all their partners’ data into a single system for easy management and organization.

“We admire the trust Advantage established with its customers, which was earned through superior solutions that affect business outcomes,” said Shawn Riegsecker, CEO of Centro. “The Centro-Advantage combination represents a next-generation media management system that transforms business operations into a differentiator and empowers agencies to strategically manage their entire organization.”

Centro is a recognized digital media-buying technology provider, having worked with 300+ regional, independent agencies in the past year. Its SaaS offering, Basis, automates and organizes the entire digital media process -- from planning to activation to performance to financial reconciliation -- via a single interface.
