NRJ Global Partners with Triton Digital to Launch the First Programmatic Audio Advertising Exchange in France
Partnership Provides Access to Premium Online and Mobile Audio Inventory Programmatically
LOS ANGELES – OCTOBER 05, 2015 – Triton Digital®, a leading technology provider for the audio industry, today announced a partnership with French multimedia group NRJ Global to bring a2x®, the industry’s foremost programmatic buying solution for digital audio, to France. The partnership will enable the programmatic purchase of targeted online and mobile audio impressions in France for the first time, beginning with inventory from NRJ Group's web radio stations with other global audio publishers to follow.
The platform’s automated, exchange-driven method of buying and selling ad impressions facilitates rapid and precise transactions, resulting in the highest price for publishers and the greatest efficiency for advertisers. To deliver the most personal, targeted ads, a2x integrates consumer data with information on online purchase intent, household demographics and behavioral propensities allowing advertisers to reach highly targeted audiences in real-time.
“We are pleased to partner with Triton Digital to bring this innovative method of buying and selling audio impressions to France,” said Kevin Benharrats, Head of Digital at NRJ Group. “As the leading programmatic digital audio ad exchange in the United States, a2x was the obvious choice for introducing programmatic buying to the French digital audio industry.”
"We are excited to partner with NRJ Global to provide programmatic access to premium audio inventory in France," said Benjamin Masse, SVP & GM of Advertising at Triton Digital. "The arrival of this exchange is a significant step forward for both the advertising landscape and the digital audio industry in France."
