Centro Releases Universal Pixel for Easy Pixel Management and Creation of First-Party Audiences

Now Available in Centro’s Basis Platform to Automate Tracking and Measurement of Audiences

Chicago – June 12, 2019 – Centro (centro.net), a global provider of advertising technology, announced the launch of universal pixel on its comprehensive platform, Basis. Universal pixel technology uses a single pixel to automate the creation and organization of first-party audiences, eliminating the need for multiple audience and conversion pixels.

This new Basis feature makes it easier and faster for advertisers to measure conversions and track customer actions. Beta tests show that media buyers are upping performance and saving time using universal pixel to segment and group customers into categories based on their actions within a domain.

Basis is the industry’s most automated, comprehensive and intelligent digital media platform, converging planning, buying, operations, campaign analytics, business intelligence, and billing reconciliation. No other DSP combines high-grade programmatic advertising features with holistic media workflow technology. Basis seamlessly assembles the tools that media businesses need to move towards full automation.

“As the steward of top tier brands, we have an enormous responsibility to drive KPIs for clients and do it with efficiency,” said Matt Mordarski, Senior Digital Media Specialist at Perich Advertising + Design. “Automating our business through Basis already gives us an edge in the market. Now we are capitalizing on new tools such as universal pixel to enhance the tracking of first-party audiences and increase the agility of our team.”

“With our campaigns, we are continually measuring and improving upon our performance. Generating and managing pixels is an essential part; but until now, it has been a tedious and lengthy process. Having the ability to use only one pixel to create various models for targeting, attribution and subsequent optimization makes us more efficient while improving ROI for our clients,” said Jessica Behal, Founder of Spherical Strategies. “Since using universal pixel in tandem with the full agency toolset in Basis, we have seen considerable improvements in campaign performance.”

Traditionally, marketers have had to use multiple pixels to create first-party audiences and track unique actions from site visitors. This meant hours of work to create many pixels, coordinate placement, and verify deployment. Thanks to the introduction of universal pixel, that work has been eliminated.

As marketers’ needs change, they use Basis to modify the data a universal pixel gathers. One pixel has the capability to segment audiences based on any combination of actions they take (search, click, browse, convert, etc.). Any number of combinations can be assigned to a single pixel.

“Universal pixel illustrates how digital media automation is realized, as it improves a typically laborious process of tracking how customers interact with a brand. Its impact on campaigns ranges as far as the creative thinking of the media team,” said Tyler Kelly, President of Centro. “With this feature seamlessly implemented in Basis, our customers have more capabilities that save time, reduce human error, and are easy to use.”
