DBCFM is a great initiative where marketers, agencies and their customers directly benefit from simplified communication, a clear increase in efficiency through further automation and increased data quality. We are therefore convinced that this new standard will establish itself step by step in the market - and increasingly so as more publishers and agency networks participate.
Thorsten Ebbing
Chief Investment Officer GroupM Germany
In order to offer our advertising partners the best user experience, we need to digitize the value chain. Our Nautilus booking system is a central building block in this. Making our print titles accessible via it is a logical step - also in the implementation of our CrossOver strategy. With the onboarding of print, we have now integrated almost all genres into Nautilus, so that everything is possible from one system, from quotation to order management to billing.

SQL has been our partner for many years and regularly develops new solutions for us for a range of services that is up-to-date with the market. By switching to ISS Nautilus as a SaaS solution, we are reducing complexity and ensuring even more stable processes - a welcome optimisation for the benefit of our customers.

ISS Nautilus expands booking system for Ad Alliance to include print
Multi-channel system enables more flexible booking of the Ad Alliance portfolio. With the addition of print to the ISS Nautilus booking software, SQL Service GmbH has been serving a gap in demand from both publishers and cross-media marketers since last year. Ad Alliance has been accessing the software provider's latest offering since January 2023 and now also markets the print portfolio completely via the multi-channel system. The integration of the print business processes is the logical consequence of the previous successful cooperation between Ad Alliance and the Wuppertal-based software house. Video, ATV, CTV, audio and display are already comprehensively embedded…

The modern I/O business has to be more automated
Although programmatic advertising has taken the advertising world by storm, the I/O business remains a mainstay for German marketers.
