Many teams are already using Flight Control alongside Clinch's Smart Ad Serving, a powerful platform that provides real-time analytics and enables adjustments and optimizations throughout the lifecycle of the campaign, reporting not only on what combinations of creative elements performed but also on why they performed. As Dynamic Creative Optimization continues to change the media landscape at a breakneck pace, we see Clinch as a standout for their focus on constant innovation to meet the demands of the market and our clients. To date, the industry has really been missing an intuitive UI to create, manage and maintain DCO campaigns across all paid media channels.
