Q: What are the key features of your platform?
A: We break down five features of the Platform161 platform, to clarify how adaptability and customization help our clients improve performance and hit their goals.
Algorithm: Our algorithm is automated decisioning logic that continually evolves, for greater accuracy and effectiveness.
Data management: At Platform161, we lead the way in enabling custom integrations, especially for data sources. This is key both for ROI, but also from a legal and compliance perspective.
Access to new and improved user interface or full API: When it comes to data, it’s not just what goes in, but what comes out that counts. That’s why our platform includes adaptable and powerful analytics and visualization tools. After all, custom, fast and flexible graphs and dashboards are critical both to understanding and improving results.
Custom partner integrations: One of the great innovations of ad and marketing tech is the API, allowing different tech stacks to communicate, and effectively become even better than the sum of their parts. We support a joined up eco-system, and will gladly connect with your choice of tech, or even advise you what that tech should be.
Data Privacy: We specialize in working with clients who have specific security needs, or who require greater levels of data privacy and security. With the new General Data Privacy Regulations (GDPR) going live on 25 May, our Projects & Privacy Director ensures that post-25 May offers legal certainty and gives us a better opportunity to work together with our clients in a trusting and transparent manner.
Our commitment to flexibility and personalization drives results and returns for brands and agencies.
