Marketing operations have become too complex for media professionals and marketing team leaders because of new channels, ad formats, reporting metrics, and more. This expansion is straining marketers, leading to higher labor costs, deteriorating unit economics, decreasing customer service quality, lower efficacy of paid ads, and declining profitability. The marketing industry continues to utilize disparate, legacy point solutions that are disconnected from the core elements of media workflow. Basis Technologies’ mission since the beginning of the Company’s incorporation in October 2001 is to improve the lives of marketers and increase business outcomes through automation.

“Basis Technologies is powering the future of work for the global media industry. Our integrated automation, intelligence and collaboration software is essential for improved performance, increased productivity, faster collaboration, streamlined processes, and better intelligence across all professionals,” said Shawn Riegsecker, CEO, Basis Technologies. “The velocity of industry change is accelerating, leaving a wake of complexity, disorganization, and disconnection of people, processes, and platforms. These problems have led to increasing levels of employee fatigue, exhaustion, frustration, and burnout, and it has become enormously challenging to overcome them with antiquated tools. Our industry requires modern technology solutions built for where the business ecosystem is going, and Basis Technologies is in prime position to lead this era of automation.”
