WHO ARE WE
Founded in 2013, Datawrkz is a leading Digital Marketing Solution provider for publishers, agencies and brands. The company is headquartered in the US and has a strong presence in Singapore and India. Datawrkz works with both Agencies and Publishers to help them leverage the programmatic paradigm. On the demand side, Datawrkz functions as an Independent Trading Desk to power digital media strategy, planning and execution on behalf of their Agency and Brand clients in a transparent financial model. On the supply side, Datawrkz drives higher yield for publishers through proprietary programmatic technology with BidAmp – a header bidding and mediation solution and AdPrimus – the company’s suite of innovative ad units.
Transparency is an attribute we consider sacrosanct and is at the heart of our operations. We are upfront about what we do, and how we are doing it. We believe in openness so much, we even coined our own framework – Full Spectrum Transparency. Take a look and compare us to your alternatives to see how they stack up.
We realize that your results, time, and money are impacted by any decision we make, and we take that responsibility very seriously. You can count on us to walk you through options and suggest a course of action that benefits you.
We understand that clients – both large and small – are trying to make sense of the constantly shifting sands in Advertising Technology. Our solutions are constructed keeping the needs of all sizes of clients in mind.
As a globally distributed organization, we make ourselves available when you need to talk to us. We work when you work. We even work when you rest!
