Now your entire team can understand how advertising is working across the consumer journey, with special highlights on segmented performance data and identifying product “pushers” vs. product “draggers”.

5) Real-time Optimization
Skai’s KPO now offers the flexibility for you to determine when our machine learning models update your campaigns: you can choose daily updates or even hourly model refreshes. Marketers chasing hot product opportunities, responding to dynamic competitive environments, or even riding trends from external events can now rely on Skai to optimize with the dynamics that work best for their strategy.
6) Shopping Mirroring
Skai’s powerful Campaign Mirroring solution drives dynamic synchronization between all the components of a search campaign across multiple publishers. Now that power comes to your product feeds with full Mirroring support across Google, Bing, and soon Pinterest.
7) Creative Refresh
Using Creative Manager, clients can manage media holistically, automatically sync brand assets, prepare media for multiple ad formats at scale, and now quickly refresh media to fight ad fatigue or deliver multi-touch storytelling. Creative Manager’s newest feature allows advertisers to easily organize video and image assets into Collections and assign them to ads for scalable creative refresh.
8) Holistic Measurement
Connecting publisher and third-party cross device data with the advertiser’s first party audiences, Skai is offering additional levels of insight for online, offline, and in-app engagement. Creating a self-service environment that supports almost any conversion type and aligning those with business goals, Skai’s approach is aimed at understanding the incremental benefits that each publisher offers. Beta testing is set to start at the end of Q1.
