Releasing the APIs powering the RollWorks and AdRoll business units, NextRoll continues evolution beyond retargeting roots
AdRoll Group announced it has rebranded as NextRoll, Inc., a marketing and data technology company. Additionally, NextRoll is introducing external APIs to open its infrastructure, technology and data to a wide array of new companies. NextRoll is now comprised of three business units: RollWorks, an account-based platform for B2B marketing and sales teams; AdRoll, a growth marketing platform for direct-to-consumer (DTC) brands; and NextRoll Platform Services, a marketing-technology-as-a-service offering for brands, agencies, marketplaces, publishers, and marketing platforms to enhance current marketing capabilities or enable new revenue streams.
As online marketing has become more complex, many companies must choose between building their own technology stacks or working with closed-system providers, which can result in losing control, flexibility and customer insight. Now, with NextRoll Platform Services, companies can access leading marketing technology, data and channels without sacrificing relationships with their key audiences. For example, marketplaces can improve demand generation by giving their customers access to premium tools and audiences from NextRoll.
NextRoll Platform Services leverages rich data assets for unified, people-based profiles across first-, second- and third-party data, including more than 500 million identities and 1 billion devices. Additionally, NextRoll’s machine-learning capabilities enable companies to provide marketing messages, activate curated audiences and measure which efforts drive the greatest impact. NextRoll Platform Services customers can scale as needed, with a global infrastructure that covers 110 countries and manages up to five petabytes of stored data and 12 trillion real-time events processed daily.
“We’ve built an unrivaled marketing and data technology stack that enables marketers to better understand and engage with their audiences to make measurable decisions,” said Toby Gabriner, CEO of NextRoll. “With our new NextRoll Platform Services, we can offer these benefits to more companies, and allow them to innovate on top of our offerings. As we launch NextRoll Platform Services, it’s clear we’ve grown beyond our old name. Today, NextRoll is a marketing and data technology company.”
