In Focus: How Co.dx transformed banner pricing for a major home improvement retailer 

Previously, our client’s teams were still using manual methods such as spreadsheets to input data and make important decisions on banner pricing strategies. Being heavily reliant on human effort and co-operation, it inevitably led to inefficient pricing strategies, redundant and overlapping entries, leading to unsold banners and consequent losses. 
After understanding the problem, we got to work on a solution that would reduce the need for human effort and avoid redundancies, while providing accurate pricing, available ad inventory forecasting and automated process management. We leveraged our proprietary accelerator platform Co.dx which already had a prototype for retail media banner pricing.  We built a scalable and fully automated webtool and solution for onsite banner campaigns with the goal of enabling data-driven onsite banner pricing recommendations. The resulting solution provided the client’s sales teams with important automated information such as: 

  • The ideal times to book a banner,
  • The number of advertisers booking a banner slot, 
  • Number of advertisers currently in hold, 
  • Banners already set up for sale, 
  • Banners to be worked on by Ad Ops teams,
  • Banners currently in inventory, 
  • Dynamic inventory management, 
  • Notifying user(s) if inventory is sold out, 
  • How inventory can be freed up, 
  • How banners can be made available for upcoming fiscal weeks, 
  • Upcoming events for pricing strategy, 
  • Traffic and how it will change, etc. 


We focused on providing an improved end-to-end user experience while keeping things customizable. The banner pricing solution, built on Co.dx not only provided an intuitive user interface (UI) but also reduced manual touchpoints by making use of validation checks for not just the booking and placement of banners, but also for media pricing, reservation, and the sales process of said banners. Additionally, the solution guaranteed pricing compliance and inventory utilization as it was tailor-made for the client’s product environment.
In the end, the ease of creating business applications through Co.dx allowed us to maximize the client’s revenue generation from on-site banner campaigns, reducing the occurrence of unsold banners and cutting costs – by over 35%. With an on-site team that constantly generates data for the tool, we are now working with them on updates and maintenance.
