"The best online adbuilder tool"

What do you like best?

1. All the creative components are very easy to handle and we are able to create rich media ads with in few mins.

2. The responsive design helps us to use single creative for multiple devices in a hassle-free process.

3. The "Celtra ad creator exporter" tool which was new introduced in celtra is really a innovative and thoughtful feature. This is helpful to use Photoshop layers in Celtra.

4. The simulate context feature in the preview window is very helpful to check the creative's actual behavior in different location/timezone/weather condition/platform etc.,

5. The VPAID tag extraction feature for desktop is very helpful and saves us lot of time.

What do you dislike?

Landscape video editing & image editing option is not available in Celtra, I would suggest to add both features in Celtra which will be helpful for lot of designers

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes of course :)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1. The A/B test component was helpful to test the potential of two different ad units in a single creative despite of creating two different ad units for checking results.

2. The Optimize feature in the A/B test component helped us to automatically switch the perfect ad unit during the live without developer intervention.

"Innovative rich media ad platform"

What do you like best?

Celtra is an innovative rich media ad platform. It is easy to use without any coding. Celtra has great resources to help anyone to start building ads and their customer service does a great job of helping their customers with any questions they have. And another note; their preview page helps a lot sharing the creatives with clients for them to test it on their actual mobile, tablet or desktop devices.

What do you dislike?

If you are planning a build out of the box sometimes it is hard to achieve this using their product. If you are custom coding the units it might cause some conflict with their existing code. And some of the features are inconsistent with the products that they offer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use their resources and join their webinar sessions. They have amazing product specialists will help you with all they have. And their support articles cover all of your potential questions. And if you are still not sure just contact them. :)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use their platform everyday building digital ads (anywhere between simply animated units to more advanced ones, and video ads) for my clients. The biggest benefit of their platform is all the available features listed works as a charm with no issues and after I build the ads I do not have to worry about potential issues at all :)

What Creative Management Platforms solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Senior Mobile Ad Developer"

What do you like best?

How fast you can build an ad and that you are always adding new things to improve the app. I've been implement ThreeJs inside the platform and other libraries that allows the company to offer ad of different categories.

I like that the application is always been updated. W can be more creative when we have more tools like the transition component. I like the different ways to test the Ad in the preview; simulating content by time, by date, by weather etc.

What do you dislike?

That the platform is not full flexible. For example the availability of fonts in the platform is limited. They could include fonts libraries from google fonts or other source.

When you use a font from Celtra with the Texty component. This is add a lot of weight to the unit.

I would like to have gradient radial in the shapey component also to have border with gradient.

I would like to have elements in the master that appear above or below, I would like to be able to decide that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is an application that saves you a lot of time in building ad lets you develop multiple formats, inclusive is flexible to create your own formats. You can implement JS libraries to do games, forms, or any other formats to advertise products.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm able to develop ad units in different formats really fast.

The company is able to meet the requirements in the metrics. We have access to all that data and we can see in what the ad fails or not.

"Great tool"

What do you like best?

I love how easy and intuitive celtra has made their ad building platform. You can move around your panels and windows, zoom in and out just like all my other design programs, as well as animate easily.

What do you dislike?

I do dislike that they took out the ability to show the QR code right in the builder, and that they removed the ability to switch between creatives in a campaign with a drop down menu. I do also wish they would provide some sort of indicator when other users are within a build, so that you're not over writing eachother.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Support is always willing to help, if you're having trouble or want some examples pushed to your account sot hat you can see them in depth, never hesitate to reach out!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are easily able to send previews of units to clients that allow them to test in both a browser and mobile environment.

"Accessible and reliable"

What do you like best?

It's a great, easy to use platform that gets constantly updated with new features in an almost monthly basis. The components are surprisingly powerful, and allow for a lot of different ways to deliver a creative piece. The timeline is also one of the best features they have included in the platform, since it gives full control on how to manage each asset inside the canvas.

What do you dislike?

There are still some features that are not being implemented as a component yet. One of them being the 360° gyroscope gallery, which it's only available after contacting tech support as a standalone creative piece.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Compared to other platforms, it's quite easy to pick up and use for people who have little to no experience.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Production of creative pieces has become easy and fast, and allows us to give a quick response to all our clients.

"Best Creative Tool in Market"

What do you like best?

For us as Mobile Specialists we are on the one hand always looking for new formats but on the other hand buy inventory programmatically and constantly need to keep an eye on qualitity. Celtra helps in both ways with a good ui to build the ads and powerfull reporting to find the right inventory source.

What do you dislike?

At the beggining we where suprised by the gap between requested and served/rendered impression. Finally the biggest influence to decrease this gap is the inventory you serve the ads.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed a stable framework to create mobile ads and repport results to our clients. The API´s Celtra offer are amazing, e.g. where we able to skip an additional vendor for wether targeting as thois is already connected to the plattform.

"Amazing platform to create ad formats"

Easy to create awesome RM and very intuitive. Celtra launches new products and solutions every year.

Celtra has trainings every month.

The support team are always responding your questions by email or by phone.

Innovative solutions

Mobile products are very responsive

The personal training is great

The way to share the preview of Rich Media to customers. They're always amazed by the power of this technology

some products/ad formats are not well explained to replicate them. Some videos are a little bit old and the platform has changed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Quicker response in questions & doubts

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Innovation for my customers. The customers are very satisfied with the pieces we've create and with the analytics and reports that they get. The objectives are most of time accomplished.

"Best in class CMP"

What do you like best?

Celtra is hands down the best Creative Management Platform on the Market. It is very powerful, offering many robust components and features to build Display, Rich Media and Interactive ad formats.

What do you dislike?

The new animation timeline could be a bit more refined. It's a fairly new tool so I expect it to get better over time, just as other new features have in the past.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a CMP that is rich in features with a great support team, then Celtra should be your first and only choice.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Celtra helps us streamline all of our ad builds, we're able to use one builder to create, traffic and pull reports across all of our campaigns.

"Market leading for easy-to-build HTLM5 mobile ads"

What do you like best?

Not only is the Celtra Ad Creator easy to use, it's fast, intuitive and very powerful. Some may previously have complained that drag and drop, component-based platforms like this would lead to 'templated' design - the same sort of designs over and over again - but this is simply wrong. The vast array of tools and abilities within Ad Creator mean that it is possible to build good looking, interactive and reliable HTML5 mobile ads. Gone are the days of 5 day Quality Assurance tests for weighty, bloaty Flash Ads, Celtra streamlines the whole process - without any code. Ideal for visual designers.

What do you dislike?

Celtra probably isn't ideal for large scale duplication. Creating ads in the Ad Creator is easy when making a few ads. If you want to create many, many ads that all look and behave the same, it's quite time consuming.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You want to build good looking, highly interactive HTML5 mobile ads, without any code, difficult trafficking or nonsense? Use Celtra.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're a team without a Developer. The Celtra Ad Creator requires no code and very little understanding of how code works. This is ideal for us. We can make good looking, complex ads, without the need of hiring a developer.

"One of the most user friendly creative management platforms"

What do you like best?

I have started using Celtra 8 months ago and I love how easy it is to use. Even if I've never done animations professionally before with Celtra it is just few steps // minutes and you can get pretty cool effects for your ads. It is like photoshop and after effects combined together only in a way that anyone can get it without hours long tutorials!

What do you dislike?

I think the video formats could be improved a little bit. So that it could be combination of video plus separate elements. Also there are some additional functions to be implemented in the future.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am creating mobile advertiing with Celtra. I think it is time saving tool.

"Celtra Review"

What do you like best?

Table Graph in Reporting - easiest way to consume data and understand performance metrics

Placement to Creative associations in the 'Campaign Tab' is great. Easy way to upload/activate campaigns.

What do you dislike?

Report Builder -

In order to find deep engaging metrics, it can be a bit tricky to use, as some fields are disabled for particular reporting pulls (Ex. Report for "Placement, Unit, Page Name, Reporting Label >> Custom Occurrence"... you would not be able to add in Unit Engagements to this equation ).

Metric Calculations -

When hovering over the reporting headers, such as "Ad Engagement Rate' - would appreciate a definition of what is calculated into that metric.

Creative HotSpots -

Within the Creative builder, the set-up was recently updated where you have to click on the 'Hot Spot' and then toggle to the URL tab in order to add a landing destination. This is tricky and adds time to the process. I do not like this update.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows us to provide in-depth reporting analyses for our clients. Going an extra step to highlight true engagement metrics beyond the initial click.

Would love to see a future integration with Brand Safety partners such as IAS or DV, integrating their 'viewable impressions' into the reporting equations.

"The ease with which one can create Ads"

What do you like best?

1. The user experience. I came from backend software development domain, but using celtra was a piece of cake after attended a few webinars. Everything is so easy to use and manipulate

2. The webinars. Regular webinars are so helpful

3. Response timings. Celtra is really quick with resolving bugs and solving any issues you have

What do you dislike?

No mobile website. Celtra should create a mobile website for the celtra builder. I would love to edit my ads on the go.

The documentation for using the javascript APIs can be somewhat more elaborate.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1. Creating beautiful mobile ads in less than a day

2. Creating difficult rich media units with ease by adding/manipulating javascript

"Makes Life So Much Easier"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of being able to customize our ad units. The demo user face is incredibly helpful for reviewing these units in different settings (timing, platform, and location).

What do you dislike?

At this time, I don't have any aspects that I dislike.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to add elements so easily which really elevates our offerings to our clients. An example is when a client has static assets, we are able to include animation or cool effects which helps to impress our clients. We are also able to include these features with minimal lead time which is super helpful since we are constantly working on tight turnarounds.

"Extensive Ad Platform"

What do you like best?

The Celtra platform provides a variety of ad options to best suit your needs with a great support team available to help.

What do you dislike?

Custom font is not currently available, although the team will try to help with any problem. But the support team is located in the EU and may take some time to respond.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Nothing to lose with trying out Celtra. You will probably find that this is an easier solution than your current platform and there is a lot of custom assets that can be incorporated without the hassle of custom coding. However if custom coding is needed there is an option for that also.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are quick turn around solutions as each ad unit is provided as a template and can be as extensive and personalised as you wish. It's all a matter of what design you wish to include.

"Best Self service platform in the biz "

What do you like best?

The ability to customize the platform to suit the needs of any user - whether it be more intermediate level or advanced, Celtra is scalable for multiple departments. The ability to add any custom JS makes possibilities endless. They've also super simplified the trafficking process, and auto-replacing macros for various DSPs and Ad Servers really simplifies tracking issues.

What do you dislike?

There have been several UI changes back to back that make it hard to keep up with. It would also be great if Celtra would work directly with other 3rd party tracking and measurement companies to alleviate problems that could arise when several tracking companies try and double host creatives.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Providing creative solutions for advertisers that engage beyond standard units. They allow users to bring assets to life to tell a better story and drive branding.

"The Creative Management Platform for Digital Advertising"

What do you like best?

I love how my company can use Celtra to easily create rich media ads for production, management and distribution for our clients.

What do you dislike?

I have not found any dislikes yet. Our company has been using Celtra for a few months now.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Celtra offers a premium, native-like experience on any device with the most innovative ad formats. It is highly personalized, relevant content via integrated 1st & 3rd party data and comprehensive programmatic creative capabilities. Lightning-fast loading of HD video featuring retina graphics, regardless of device.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used to use Double Click Studio to create rich media ads, then would need to make a connection between the ads in Studio and DFP. With Celtra, our design team will create the ads, and when we are ready to test and publish the ads, we generate a tag to serve in DFP.

"Rich media platform excels in deliverables"

What do you like best?

As a non designer I can easily create rich media ads that can run in-app environments.

What do you dislike?

The option of no longer being able to navigate between creatives under one campaign

Recommendations to others considering the product

the product is constantly updating their template or webinar with the new tech out in market. I'm not the decision maker on financial aspect of the tool so my recommendation is more from a user point of view.

Email support is quite fast and their response aren't canned response.

"Celtra: The Tool for the Times"

What do you like best?

Powerful, pre-programmed components to set your creativity free.

What do you dislike?

The inability to simply delete unwanted creatives and the inability to personalize the look of the environment, i.e. change the small dark type used throughout to something easier to read.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As a designer, working on multiple projects, I have little time to try to learn HTML5 programming. And as a visual person, little interest, to be honest. Celtra allows me to do the creative, while it takes care of the back end... coding through pre-programmed and very powerful/versatile components. Take advantage of all the various tools at your disposal and you'll wow anyone who sees your work.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Celtra gives us the ability to design complex and powerful advertising solutions for clients within very tight deadlines.

"Easy to use and great animation"

What do you like best?

Celtra is great for designers who don't have a lot of experience writing code. The animations are slick, it is easy to use and very intuitive. I love all of the options and functions. The Webinars are fantastic as well. It's also easy to send ad tags and traffic the ads. I really enjoy creating ads with Celtra and would highly recommend it to anyone.

What do you dislike?

I don't have many things that I dislike about Celtra, although coming from having used Flash for many years it seems like I was able to have more control over the animations in Flash than I can in Celtra.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using it for ads primarily, and clients are very please with the professional looking animations.

What do you like best?

The best thing about Celtra is the fact you could easily get used and learn how to work within as the interface is really cool and adjusted so that you basically have everything within it. Additionally, I have to mention the awesome features the platform is incorporating such as 360 video and interactive video.

"the best application to design your mobile ads"

What do you like best?

you can use javascript features without having to know how to program it has a very intuitive interface, and pre-programmed components that perform javascript functions very quickly and easily have a javascript API, and you can also use custom javascript, although it is a bit compiled.

You can work in different formats, also your ads can be vertical or landscape, it is very versatile and you can also make banners for web if you want, work with videos, animations, effects among others what makes it your best option when it comes to choose a platform for these types of projects

What do you dislike?

the way to be able to program javascript in a personalized way is a little complicated, although they have personalized guide to be able to realize said personalized api, it is a little tangled the way to arrange the code and to execute it.

everything is recorded inside your platform there is no way to have a version on your local machine, it works directly in the cloud, which means that if you do not have an internet connection, you can not work

Recommendations to others considering the product

create interfaces so that it is in developer mode, because if it is possible to program with javascript these ads, there should be a part in which you can only create ads with javascript html5 and ccs3, improve a bit the integration with cc3 since it is a bit incomprehensible the way to integrate css3 in your projects

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have deployed many mobile ads and the truth that customers have been very satisfied with the final result, plus you can program interactive ads, which hooks customers very pleasantly

"Working directly with Celtra"

What do you like best?

I really liked the Support team - and sitting in on new webinars - Celtra is always good at working with you directly to solve problems or fix bugs within the program. I also liked that it was not one computer specific - you could be in any computer with internet and continue your project. They were also very innovative with what you could do - always coming up with new ideas and improving the UX of the platform. Trafficking the ads was a sinch - i found this platform easier than Doubleclick Studios when it came to getting the ad tag to send off to my AdOps teams.

What do you dislike?

I didn't LOVE the user experience - black on black - hard to see - but they have been making great stireds to improve it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it where ever i could - I switched out of roles but my knowledge of celtra helped me know what is possible and I am always the first one to recommend this to someone else.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

3rd party ad trafficking is much simpler thanks to Celtra. I always found it difficult to have to go through double clicks step process o get the tag - Celtra has simplified that process.

"Celtra"

What do you like best?

The tags within this program allow for ease of posting ad units online. Very user friendly in this aspect

What do you dislike?

Issues with ease of the timeline. No ability to see how long the ad is running ( ie 30 seconds) without timing it yourself. Having a time tracker in place would be useful

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to create many ads a day using celtra and having the ability to get ads online quickly using the auto generated tags is a great feature

"Almost great"

What do you like best?

PhotoShop plugin - ease of asset layout in Builder; easy access to tweening; campaign management.

What do you dislike?

No support for SVG art, no motion on a path. Awkward scene animation process. Proofing should have the ability to proof all ads in a campaign with one link.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ad proofing interface saves time and improves communication. The ability to make changes to live creative without affecting the ad tags is the biggest benefit.

"Celtra Review - Custom Build "

My query was answered very quickly, and the conversation was with one adviser - rather than being passed around between different people. The support was very smart and human, and I felt genuinely supported in my query which gave me confidence in Celtra's service.

The site isn't super-easy to navigate to find answers to queries.

I would definitely recommend consulting with Celtra's help support service, as the experience I've had is very positive.
