Ayuda Media Systems (“Ayuda”) today announced that it will be rebranding its flagship ERP system for DOOH networks as Splash. The move aims to better reflect and differentiate Ayuda’s expanding portfolio of products which now includes BMS – ERP software for the traditional out-of-home industry; Splash (previously BMS Digital) – ERP, CMS, and free software player for the ad-based DOOH industry; and the soon to be launched Symphony – a comprehensive buying platform for the entire OOH industry.
“The BMS moniker – which was originally an acronym for Billboard Management System – no longer reflected the reality of the DOOH marketplace where most digital displays are not billboards,” explains Joe Cotugno, Vice-President of Client Services at Ayuda. “We felt it was time to introduce a new, fresher, name for our DOOH platform, especially as we continue to expand our portfolio of products.” BMS Digital, Ayuda’s sophisticated platform for ad-based DOOH networks, which includes ERP functionality such as sales & proposal generation, invoicing, lease payouts, and financial reporting, as well as a full-featured, rules-based digital content management system and a free software player, will be rebranded as Splash beginning with the upcoming release of BMS Digital due to be launched at DSE this year.
Ayuda Media Systems (Ayuda) has been providing the D/OOH industry with the world’s most sophisticated media management platform for over 10 years. As the developers of the Ayuda Platform (which notably includes Juice™, Splash™, BMS™, Zest™ Rewind™, Cerebro™, and now, Alto™), Ayuda’s products have invoiced over two billion dollars in OOH billing and provided media management functions for more than 500,000 advertising faces globally. The Ayuda Platform is cloud-based, and includes functionality for D/OOH networks such as avails and proposal generation, invoicing, lease payouts, financial reporting, inventory management, scheduling, content management, mapping, network monitoring, business intelligence, a free software player, real-time annotated proof of play, and the world’s only D/OOH vendor focused CRM. Ayuda was founded in 2003 by ex-Microsoft employees with the mission of empowering the D/OOH industry with state-of-the-art tools that make D/OOH easier to manage and buy. In November 2012, Microsoft presented Ayuda’s Splash™ product with the highly coveted Windows Azure Application – Partner of the Year Award for its use of the Microsoft Azure Cloud.
