Imagine Communications announced an alliance with Innovar Media Solutions under which the companies will integrate Innovar's ad automation solutions and consulting services to help Imagine customers migrate to new platforms for ad inventory management and optimization, traffic, and billing.

"We've long recognized the integral role Innovar's talented team and innovative product suite have played in helping our MVPD customers quickly deploy Imagine solutions to solve emerging challenges and meet new opportunities," said Tom Cotney, CEO of Imagine Communications. "We are formalizing our relationship with a global alliance that sees our philosophies and values fully aligned, as content distributors seek new solutions to complex and dynamic media environments. I think it's a true win for our customers to blend our depth in product knowledge with Innovar's consultative view of the overall workflow that we serve."

Imagine and Innovar plan to collaborate on integrated solutions and future products, including integrating Innovar's solutions suite into Imagine's xG Linear traffic and billing platform and its broadcast traffic and billing platform, Landmark Sales.

Innovar specializes in the automation of operational workflows, system integration and dynamic pricing. Its portfolio of products already integrates into Imagine's xG Linear platform. Innovar's ad operations solutions, such as InnVue, connect buy and sell-side operations and workflows by automating creative instructions and streamlining media distribution to reduce operational expenses. The company's consultancy services complement Imagine's professional services capabilities with additional expertise and knowledge of media workflows and technology.

Shawn Coffman, CEO of Innovar, said: "We are excited about our alliance and the opportunity to leverage Imagine's proven platforms to enrich integrations, enhance capabilities and drive efficiencies for our clients. This is a natural fit from a technology and organizational perspective."
