  • Transparency 

Other than minimizing human errors, auctions in programmatic buying display the price and bids on the Demand Side Platform (DSP) to all users. Publishers will have to put up their best competitive price to attract advertisers. Advertisers can also enjoy the advantages of programmatic advertising with real-time proof of play from programmatic DOOH.
