OX Ad Engine

OX Ad Engine combines an OX App Suite UI plugin with server based configuration to display pre-defined advert formats in specified locations in OX App Suite.

OX Ad Engine provides a solid foundation for ad monetization and allows the easy integration of ad tags from different ad partners.

OX Ad Engine is highly configurable and an Admin can define which modules display ads, the format of the ad and which users receive advertising. Additional triggers can be set to change ads based on specific events or environment settings, for example when changing between modules, or a time out value can be set to reload an ad after a specific time.

Please Note: OX Ad Engine is only available for OX App Suite as part of the OX Advertisement Program. Please contact Open-Xchange Sales for further information.
