Business Challenge

Ad-Lib was looking to develop a creative management platform for digital advertising, which would automate, improve, and lower the cost of ad creative production.
  • The idea was to automate all aspects of visual assets production, including cross-channel, cross-format, and cross-location production.
  • Ad-Lib previously collaborated with a vendor but was unhappy with the solution development.
  • The MVP that Ad-Lib had was in a very fragile state: Any changes to the code caused the support side to break.

Xenoss Solution

Smooth takeover, proper MVP rebuild, fast transformation
to a fully-featured product
Speedy construction of AdTech-specialized dev team
Ad-Lib’s competition was getting tougher and pressed the timeline. Thus, Xenoss significantly accelerated team hire and composition processes. Within just a quarter, we gathered a full team of 20 highly qualified engineering and product specialists for the project.
Painless project takeover and tech support
Xenoss enabled a smooth transition from the previous vendor without business interruption, which allowed Ad-Lib to focus on managing business problems. We provided the necessary tech assistance to help the client solve typical startup challenges, such as finalizing the product roadmap, passing due diligence, attracting investors.
Complete overhaul of the unstable legacy MVP
In a very limited timeframe and with minimal business losses to our client, Xenoss transformed a fragile MVP into an operable solution. It helped Ad-Lib onboard the first clients and triggered the revenue stream growth.
Cost-efficient scalable infrastructure
From the very beginning of development, the Xenoss team ensured solution readiness for expected business growth, which eventually helped the product manage high load and prevent a spike in infrastructure costs.
Advancing the technology with AI
Leveraging ML to boost ad creative workflows
Xenoss employed AI models that automatically identify attention catchers in images and crop it for cross-channel distribution. We’ve also added prediction algorithms that can determine which digital asset will be more effective and show better performance results.
Applying computer vision for video analysis
To include video support for ad creatives, we built in a custom video analysis module that can analyze every single frame of the video and automatically identify objects, people, text, and scenes. It adapts any video for multi-channel advertising campaigns.

Client’s feedback

At some point of our business journey, we had a frustrating experience with our product, from barely managing its instability to fixing errors on the fly. Xenoss team helped us build a well-balanced tech organization and deliver the MVP within a very short timeline. It let us timely onboard huge clients such as Adidas, Tesco, Uber and keep up our growing pace. I’m glad we’ve been working with such highly-productive team. I particularly appreciate their ability to hire extremely fast and to generate great product ideas and improvements.
