NEW YORK and TEL AVIV, Israel, May 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Edge 226, a technology company with a hyper focus on meeting the needs of mobile and video media buyers, was officially launched today. Headquartered in New York, NY and Tel Aviv, Israel and with an Asia-facing office in Beijing, China, Edge will service media buyers in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific regions, and offer solutions designed to meet the changing needs of today's mobile advertisers, mobile media agencies, mobile affiliate networks and video ad networks.

With unique and proprietary solutions designed to meet the evolving needs of buyers, all solutions are highly relevant to the challenges of the specific buyer class, whether that's a direct advertiser, affiliate network and/or media agency. "Regardless of where you sit in the value chain, all campaigns face the same moment of truth when end advertisers must assess whether the media spend advanced their business goals," said Avishay Raviv, Co-CEO of Edge 226. "Digital has raised the marketer's expectations, and their media acquisition partners must rise to the occasion. And that, in turn, requires a new approach to technology."
"With over a decade of hands-on experience, we were well aware of the challenges facing the industry, including issues around fraud and transparency. We spent a lot of time speaking to buyers, and the complaint we heard most frequently was how they manage to meet their clients' expectations within the growing complexity of the digital ad tech space," said Yoav Kirmayer, Co-CEO of Edge 226. "Their clients want high quality traffic backed by complete transparency to drive specific business KPIs and campaign efficiency. We understood all the steps and workflows buyers must follow to meet those demands. A new class of technology was needed with solutions that tightly track to each buyer's – and their clients' – needs."
