Goodway Group Selects FreeWheel As First Video-Only Ad Partner

Goodway Group

Today, Goodway Group, a leading, data-driven and technology-enabled digital media and marketing services firm, announced its first, video-only partnership for premium video ad inventory with FreeWheel, a global technology platform for the television advertising industry. The two companies are teaming up to help further scale and open up access to premium, connected television ad inventory for marketers. They are doing so to help tackle some of today’s most pressing industry challenges: access to premium, brand-safe ad inventory, a need for greater transparency into the ad buying process, as well as greater media efficiencies. This partnership aims to address several of those challenges by offering publishers working with Goodway Group many key benefits: First, they can tap into FreeWheel’s direct connection – and access – to a large array of premium video ad inventory. Secondly, publishers will now have greater transparency into the ad buying process, as FreeWheel has one of the industry’s most direct, efficient and simplest paths to premium video ad inventory. Lastly, per the partnership, Goodway Group has first access to test out new betas and innovations, so that its clients can stay differentiated and nimble in today’s complex ad marketplace. “As the TV advertising ecosystem continues to fragment and evolve, we sought a partner with a steady commitment to infusing simplicity, transparency and innovation and FreeWheel clearly stood out,” said Andrea Kwiatek, Director, Partnerships, Goodway Group. “FreeWheel has consistently driven greater innovation and better business results for their clients, and this is fueled by a deep understanding of the challenges that the industry faces today. We look forward to working together with them to help raise the bar for TV advertising for our clients and across the ecosystem.” The partnership comes at a time when, as more video investments shift toward programmatic activation, marketers want even greater transparency on advertising ROI. This partnership aims to address that demand by providing a more enhanced way to streamline marketers’ workflow, thereby allowing greater insight into where and how media dollars are being spent. The savings that are derived from that improved workflow, in turn, are invested back into the TV ad marketplace, allowing marketers to drive even more ad results. “At FreeWheel, we are challenging ourselves, our clients, and the broader marketplace to treat professionally produced commercial break ad inventory different from standard banner ads. This means we need to find innovative ways to make the TV ad buying process simpler and more direct, predictable and effective to buy programmatically,” said Jon Mansell, VP, Head of U.S. Programmatic Demand, FreeWheel. “These are the same guiding principles that are powering our partnership with Goodway and our goal is to help better improve the industry, on all of these pillars, by teaming up with them.” About Goodway Group Goodway Group is a leading data-driven and technology-enabled digital media and marketing services firm with teams in the U.S. and the U.K. Our diverse team of digital strategists, media practitioners, technologists and data scientists have won the most prestigious awards for innovative marketing technology, impactful work and inclusive remote-first places to work including being honored as a multiyear Ad Age Best Places to Work, AdExchanger’s Best Use of Technology by an Agency Award and three MarTech Breakthrough Awards.

Oreo Called Out for Backing PFLAG’s Agenda; Supporter of Gender Ideology, Explicit Books in Schools

NLPC

As Oreo prepares to make a splash with its first Super Bowl commercial in 10 years, National Legal and Policy Center today released a 30-second video that delivers stinging criticism of the cookie brand over its longtime partnership with PFLAG. The LGBTQ advocacy group condones gender transition treatments for children as young as three years old, and battles to make sure books with explicit content are allowed in public schools and libraries. You can watch the video here. NLPC owns stock in Oreo’s parent company, Mondelez International, and will sponsor a shareholder proposal at the annual meeting in May. The nonprofit corporate watchdog and shareholder activist initiated its campaign to highlight the cookie-maker’s inappropriate relationship with PFLAG after it noticed the brand’s social media accounts – primarily on X.com (formerly Twitter) – were heavily populated with posts in support of PFLAG’s various narratives, causes and social advocacy. Oreo has promoted various short films, special packaging and fundraisers, utilizing the company’s popularity and resources to advance PFLAG’s agenda. The pro-transgender ideology group lobbies against laws that seek to protect children from indoctrination efforts and so-called “gender affirming” medical treatments before they are mature enough to make such decisions, and also laws that protect kids from so-called “transition care” without their parents’ consent. In October Oreo also co-sponsored PFLAG’s National Convention, where the theme was “ Learning with Love.” The meeting’s first session was titled, “Let Freedom Read! Read with Love to Support Inclusive Books and Education.” PFLAG characterizes its gender ideology indoctrination efforts in schools as a so-called prevention against alleged “censorship.” PFLAG co-sponsors a “banned books” website as part of a coalition that includes the Marxist-led American Library Association. Titles such as “ This Book is Gay,” “ Gender Queer,” “ All Boys Aren’t Blue,” “ Flamer,” and “ Lawn Boy ” are among the stories with explicit content that PFLAG and its allies believe should be easily accessed by kids. “Oreo is a beloved brand with a strong identity and a reputation for connecting with all ages, especially kids, because it’s not only delicious, but fun,” said Paul Chesser, director of NLPC’s Corporate Integrity Project. “Now the cookie’s image-managers are taking it down the same dangerous path that Bud Light, Disney and Target have trodden, which led to extensive brand destruction. We urge Mondelez to terminate Oreo’s controversial relationships before it’s too late.” NLPC’s shareholder proposal asks the Board of Directors “to examine the risks and consequences of the Company’s associations with external organizations, to determine whether they threaten the growth and sustainability of the Company.” “We call upon our fellow shareholders to join us to express concern to the Mondelez board and to Chairman/CEO Dirk van de Put over this treacherous direction in which Oreo has turned,” Chesser added. “If they don’t, perhaps parents and consumers will have something to say about it.” ### For more information or to schedule an interview with Paul Chesser, contact Dan Rene at drene@nlpc.org.

In the United States, physicians possess the potential to enhance healthcare delivery by leveraging relevant information; however, the challenge lies in the timely accessibility of crucial data. Despite the ongoing digital transformation in the healthcare sector, Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) continue to face a notable gap in accessing up-to-date information, a resource that is currently exclusive to life sciences organizations. As the industry undergoes rapid digitization, the need for efficient information dissemination to empower healthcare providers becomes increasingly evident.

The patent ensures real-time clinical data mapping in a HIPAA-compliant manner, contributing to the optimization of EHRs for health data interoperability. This optimization holds significant importance in supporting clinical research efforts. The seamless integration of research and clinical care within a health system has the potential to boost clinical trial participation rates, enhance health outcomes, reduce the cost of care, and foster greater patient satisfaction. " This patent not only signifies our steadfast dedication to pushing the boundaries and creating pioneering solutions for addressing the industry's most intricate challenges but also stands as a significant milestone in our journey towards establishing leadership in healthcare innovation and technology," stated Harshit Jain MD, Founder, and Global CEO of Doceree.
