Advertising technology for a connected world
We've created an elegant real-time ad management platform. Now it's easy to advertise effectively across mobile, tablet, desktop and TV.
Our industry-leading programmatic buying technologies serve ads to connected devices around the globe. We work across both RTB exchanges and premium inventory sources, and empower both self-serve and managed service capabilities.
We apply a combination of machine learning, data science, device fingerprinting, cross platform attribution and more for best-in-class ad targeting.
Using RUN Analytics, we back our targeting and delivery with real-time data to ensure the right audience gets the right ad at exactly the right time.
The Independent Trading Desk
RUN builds cutting edge technology right here in NYC, but our open source, agile, client-focused approach enables us to see beyond our own in-house technologies to incorporate best-in-class vertical solutions from around the world.
RUN Desk combines programmatic buying technologies across mobile, video, and desktop display, with our in-house team of analytic and strategic buying and planning experts.
Because our data is truly transparent, planners can be certain that they're getting their message in front of the right audience, within the right environment, in real time.
Our independent status affords us the necessary flexibility to empower our clients with customized technology, tailored to their needs.
The campaign data our clients receive is up-to-the-second — not minutes, hours or days old. Our analytics are transparent, in-depth, lightning fast and can be visualized, graphed and downloaded in a variety of ways.
RUN Analytics is customizable to our clients’ data needs and connects seamlessly to our RTB engine, ensuring that all campaign data is actionable in real time.
Effect real and lasting social change
Corporate Social Responsibility
At RUN we recognize that being at the cutting edge of emerging technologies brings with it tremendous opportunities to lead by example.
Our response has been to develop a platform—the RUN Fund—that aligns our core business practices with our own personal values and principles
RUN allocates a percentage of its proceeds each quarter into a fund that provides marketing programs driven through RUN platforms to partner charities, at no cost to them. We encourage our clients to ask us how we can partner with them on their own philanthropic efforts through our platform.
RUN is committed to supporting all of our employees and partners in finding creative and inspiring ways to become involved in philanthropic efforts, both locally and globally.
