AI Digital partners with KERV Interactive

September 15, 2023

AI Digital, a full-service, programmatic consultancy helping advertisers enhance digital consumer experiences with an audience-first approach, has partnered with KERV Interactive, the AI powered interactive video advertising platform, to equip advertisers with differentiated capabilities to create and implement interactive and automated campaigns that drive consumer purchase behavior across video and connected TV (CTV).

This partnership is focused on helping brands to unlock the power of video as a performance media channel. Bringing together KERV’s AI-powered technology – which transforms video content into interactive experiences – with AI Digital’s programmatic and trading expertise, brands will get superior performance for video and CTV campaigns through better campaign results and consumer experiences for high-value audiences.

“As video and CTV channels become increasingly crowded, advertisers are struggling to break through the noise and establish meaningful connections with their target audiences,” said Jay Wolff, CRO of KERV Interactive. “Combining AI Digital’s programmatic and trading expertise with KERV AI’s interactive video advertising technology now gives brands the ability to accelerate business outcomes and drive active attention from their static video assets.”

AI Digital’s collaboration with KERV will also extend AI Digital’s Center of Excellence initiative in the streaming category by providing an integrated suite of utilities designed to help marketers navigate and reach the modern streaming consumer and drive them to commerce, across all consumption channels including video, audio and out-of-home (OOH).

“We are excited to be working with KERV and bringing innovation to streaming and programmatic. Streaming is fundamentally changing how people consume media in the home, out of the home and everywhere in between,” said Stephen Magli, CEO and founder, AI Digital. “We can’t think of the consumer solely on video anymore because their consumption is ubiquitous across screens in and out of the home. By capitalising on turnkey ad formats that drive performance, we are helping brands to collapse the funnel and bring in customers through video and CTV channels in a whole new way.”

Through its optimisation, consumer insights and measurement platform, ELEVATE, AI Digital drives greater accountability for client spend and delivers optimized business outcomes with its distinct metric called the Accountability Score – a specifically designed metric to help brands identify growth areas and minimize ad fraud within media plans, and ensure brand safety and address invalid traffic.

With ELEVATE, marketers on average see a 3 per cent reduction in invalid traffic and fraud, a 9 per cent improvement in unique audience delivery, and a 6 per cent increase in brand lift. The platform serves all types of media buys across channels and provides brands with total access across data, inventory, scale, to target and reach consumers at all touch points across their bespoke consumer journeys.

“This partnership with KERV signifies a commitment to our ELEVATE platform reimagining how brands and the industry can capitalize on bringing commerce solutions to programmatic,” said Magli. “AI Digital’s ELEVATE seeks to shift the programmatic definition of success away from traditional metrics of impressions, reach and clicks to more meaningful outcomes such as brand equity and lower funnel actions.”
