The idea

ViralGains partnered with Star to leverage our UI/UX design and software development expertise. They aimed to create a unique, interactive prototype for their clients in the ad industry. It had to incorporate drag-and-drop functionality and enable users to build a campaign by easily arranging blocks to link them on the digital canvas.

We leveraged deep expertise in data science and the AdTech & MarTech industry supporting ViralGains from concept through verification and implementation guidelines. And, our collaboration didn’t end with data algorithms, we ran business simulations based on real data.

Star used four programming languages on the project: R, Python, Java, and JavaScript. We investigated a variety of generalized linear models, random forest, XGBoost, and factorization machine.

We shaped the look and feel of the prototype’s UI and UX, coding three demo scenarios, including creating a campaign from scratch and viewing existing campaigns with data reporting. The tri-screen solution POC featured login, campaign overview and campaign canvas, and other features.

Our ML expertise and agile approach helped ViralGains to create a programmatic bidder for online display advertising, optimizing bidding strategies and increasing the conversion rate of adviews for its clients.
