Launch Addresses Increased Demand For In-House Programmatic Media Management From Marketing Executives

BOSTON, MASS. – June 21, 2016 – Nanigans, Inc., the leading provider of advertising automation software for in-house marketing teams, has announced the launch of Nanigans University and its accompanying Certification Program. The launch addresses the growing demand for in-house advertising talent and expertise with Nanigans software.

The Association of National Advertisers recently released a report citing that 31% of marketing executives have broadened their in-house capabilities to manage programmatic media buying over the last year. Nanigans develops software solutions to meet the needs of in-house advertisers, and has witnessed first-hand the rapid growth of the in-house advertising market.

“Our customers have proven the enhanced profitability and competitive advantages that are the direct result of building in-house advertising teams and competencies,” said Ric Calvillo, co-founder and CEO of Nanigans. “Marketing executives at these companies have been agents of change for their businesses, and are increasingly adding headcount to further scale their in-house media buying operations. Nanigans University is designed to empower these executives to train new members of their teams more quickly, and ultimately cultivate a larger pool of talent to fill these roles in the future.”

In the last year alone, Nanigans customers—who represent many of the largest and most sophisticated digital advertisers in the world—have on average doubled the number of marketers on their teams managing campaigns through Nanigans advertising automation software. Nanigans University and its Certification Program are designed to enhance software onboarding and marketer skillsets by providing a tailored training curriculum to more effectively manage, measure, optimize and scale successful performance advertising campaigns across today’s most valuable digital channels.

Calvillo added, “Nanigans University is a natural extension of our Software-as-a-Service offering. We have 6 years of experience understanding that in today’s fast-paced and data-rich online marketing environment, the most successful results combine powerful software with well-trained marketers who know their products and customers better than any third party ever could.”
