As one of the premium OTT platforms in India, this leading player grew from 50,000 monthly active users (MAUs) in its first few months of operations to 100 million MAUs in less than five years. But with the success and scaling of operations came challenges of compliance, efficiency and data accuracy.

In this case study, we showcase how this OTT platform grew its premium direct advertising revenue by 4X (without increasing its team headcount) through high levels of compliance, automation, and accurate, real-time reporting.

How Voiro’s Ad Monetisation Suite Transformed Ad Operations To Achieve Greater Efficiency and Better Ad Yield For The OTT Player

For Ad Sales

  • Automated Campaign Planning: The business suite helped the sales team plan better with Voiro’s CRM connector, helping data flow seamlessly from the CRM to Voiro. With this solution, the team moved away from emails, shared spreadsheets and folders and migrated to a seamless workspace, which helped achieve faster and more efficient campaign planning and setup time.
