The Challenge

Bonnier’s mission was to improve the monetization of online news portals across all channels, Direct and programmatic. The main technical challenge was to efficiently implement a Header Bidding wrapper. With limited IT resources, this implementation would have been a large project spanning several months, keeping Bonnier from leveraging the newest solutions in the ad tech market.

The Solution

As a long-term ad tech partner of Bonnier Business Polska, delivering full-stackfull stack – ad server and SSP platform, we were able to offer our Publisher Header Bidding as a service and implement our Managed Holistic+ product and service. 

Together with BBP, we implemented a Header Bidding wrapper and connected all their existing and newly signed SSPs in less than one month. They are now able to manage all campaigns, set up floor prices, activate/deactivate HB in one dashboard giving the BBP team unified reporting across all partners. Moreover, after activating Smart’s Holistic+ engine, they are running their ad monetization through one 100% unified auction maximizing revenue. With this solution, Bonnier Business Polska has full control over all digital channels: Direct, Header Bidding client-site, and Smart RTB+.

Thanks to Managed Holistic + we implemented header bidding in 1 week. The implementation was done without any problems and without the need to make big changes in the adserver settings. Thanks to this solution, we have achieved an increase in revenue, eCPM and saved time and costs that we would have incurred if we had implemented it independently.
