Lotame

Well suited for advertising business. Has a lot of links to all relevant technologies. It is also a great platform if you want to buy or sell data and look for quality here.But you need a team which knows how to handle data.Less appropriate when you expect a fully managed service.

The Trade Desk

We are a large company, but The Trade Desk seems like it would also work well for small companies. In our limited deployment, we focused on the USA market and Digital Marketing, but we see this platform working for global markets, multi-language, and across all paid search engines. They provide great user engagement and dashboard reporting to help us manage each campaign in real-time. The Trade Desk seems to do all of these things well and would work for most companies. I have yet to see a campaign and/or executive initiative that The Trade Desk can't handle. We have had a favorable experience and believe it has met every objective we have.

Cons

Lotame

  • So far we haven't encountered too many "needs improvement" pain points with Lotame - if we've had a problem so far it's been more a matter of needing to learn that particular action than any fault of Lotame.
Jim Cairl | TrustRadius Reviewer

The Trade Desk

  • I honestly can say that The Trade Desk hit all the marks on their offerings.
  • There is not really anything negative about The Trade Desk.
  • The only minor point would be the pricing as they charge a %, which needs to be added to clients' costs.

It's very intuitive. We had some training materials, but found that users were able to navigate through the software without needing many resources. Our only suggestion would be to add hover-over capability in the browser, so users can see a pop-up message further explaining what each button does.

We noted no issues with our limited interaction with support. The software operated just as expected and we found that we were able to navigate needs on our own. We understand that The Trade Desk offers excellent support, so we believe it will be a good resource to us in the future.

Alternatives Considered

Lotame

There are alternatives in the market - Visual DNA, Bluekai/Oracle/ Adobe Audience Manager, Krux.They all offer a similar offering, however, I prefer the easy UI which is very intuitive even for beginners to the DMP world.

The Trade Desk

The Trade Desk is a much better product than AppNexus. Even though both products showed promise awhile back, AppNexus stopped innovating and The Trade Desk became specialists on data, cross site tracking and CTV inventory thus having a better and more unique product that actually adds value to your advertising efforts.

Return on Investment

Lotame

  • Helped us increase data revenue via their unbranded exchange.
  • Campaign and audience reporting is used to sales discussions to justify increased spend post trial campaigns.

The Trade Desk

  • The Trade Desk has helped us get more budget from clients by delivering results.
  • It has allowed us to buy cheaper inventory than other online channels.
  • It has allowed us to not invest on our own DSP solution and use theirs.
