Mindshare, the global media agency network, that is part of WPP, has launched the Programmatic Buying Unit, ULTRA for Unilever in ASEAN.  

 Mindshare and Unilever have launched Unilever’s programmatic desk, ULTRA in Singapore to drive programmatic planning and buying for ASEAN.

 The desk has been set up with a view to work with the best of breed technologies & capabilities. The setup also allows for constant experimentation and drives an agile way of integrating the technologies available.

 ULTRA is powered by unique and custom-built audience profiling algorithms, capable of delivering multi-format communication assets across all screens, a first of its kind in Asia Pacific.

The key focus for ULTRA will be to drive digital media quality measures around complete viewability, transparent brand safety, high in-target delivery & strong fraud avoidance.

 Speaking about the new development, Rahul Welde, VP, Media at Unilever commented, “The world of advertising is seeing continuous disruption and it is important we embrace and integrate technology into how we operate. I am excited about the potential of ULTRA and keen to see this as integral to our digital marketing efforts in the region.”
