LOS ANGELES, Dec. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Social Reality, Inc. (OTCBB: SCRI), a leader in automated digital platform technology and social management software for Internet advertising, announced today the acquisition of Five Delta, a privately held company that specializes in the execution and management of media buys across all social platforms.
Five Delta has developed patent pending technology that will integrate into the SRAX (Social Reality Ad Exchange) platform and allow both publishers and media buyers to benefit from the optimization of both social and RTB media buys.
"We are excited to integrate the Five Delta technology into our platform and to further enhance our offerings to our customers," said Chris Miglino, CEO and Co-Founder of Social Reality. "We continue to build technology that bridges the gap between social and RTB media buying, and Five Delta will help us accelerating these offerings."
"It isn't often I see such an interesting ad technology company and, better yet, be fortunate enough to join forces with it," said Dustin Suchter, Founder of Five Delta. "Honestly, I get excited when things start to multiply and have a really meaningful impact on the marketplace. Social Reality's SRAX is a great platform and adding Five Delta is so mutually beneficial that I am really looking forward to the net result."
The company's Social Reality Ad Exchange (SRAX) is an SSP that was launched in early 2013 in order to connect online publishers with demand partners and buyers through advanced programmatic technology and RTB integration. The SRAX platform has gained the reputation for making buying and selling of display, video, mobile and in-app advertising an easier and more efficient experience than other digital ad technologies. Its proprietary RTB management platform integrates social information to optimize client results from the DSP and SSP offerings. Social Reality's GroupAd product offering is a complementary social management and tracking software focused on delivering brand advocacy and customer loyalty via an integrated dashboard, to launch, distribute and optimize social and digital media campaigns.
