CitrusAd platform’s real-time relevancy engine enables brands to reach consumers at right moment with the right product – enhancing their online shopping experience. Controls and transparent reporting via easy-to-use dashboards mean advertisers can measure and refine campaigns to ensure they are meeting their individual goals.

The advanced retail media platform from CitrusAd will enable our company to generate a sizeable, scalable revenue stream, provide our suppliers with a self-serve platform to generate high ROAS sponsored products and banner ads as well as improve the overall shopping experience” commented Bharat Rupani, President and Representative Director of Aeon Next.
Launched in Australia in 2017 CitrusAd has since expanded across the APJ region as well as to the US and EMEA.
