BudgetiX – the Campaign Daily Budget plugin for Revive Adserver – has been designed to enhance the two campaign types “Remnant” and “Override” so that you can define a daily maximum number of impressions. We’ve called it “BudgetiX” because it effectively limits how much of a campaign’s overall budget will be spent each day.
Having a daily budget on a Remnant or Override campaigns is similar to a Contract campaign, with one important difference: Contract campaigns are supposed to deliver their target number of impressions, whereas a Remnant campaign with BudgetiX will never go over the daily budget, but can end up delivering significantly less if other campaigns take more of the overall available impressions.
Being able to define a maximum number of daily impressions should ensure that a campaign does not go over that limit, but it could mean that it will delivery fewer impressions than the set maximum. This could happen, for example, when your ordinary contract campaigns require so many of the total number of available impressions, that there isn’t enough left for remnant campaigns.
Product information and screenshots
Once the plugin has been installed, you will notice that a new tab appears when viewing any campaign. Clicking it will reveal the page to adjust the budget settings for that campaign:
By default, any campaign is set to ‘unlimited’, which is default behavior of the core application. BudgetiX offers a number of additional budget types:
- Unlimited: this means the campaign will behave exactly as it would without the BudgetiX plugin installed
- Daily budget: this means you can enter the maximum number of impressions this campaign is allowed to display per day. In reality it could turn out to be much lower when other campaigns in your ad server need more impressions, but BudgetiX is supposed to make sure that it will never be more than this budget.
- Daily budget (burst): this means that BudgetiX will attempt to deliver the impression budget as quickly as possible, ignoring the Traffic Weight settings you have entered in the Configuration described earlier on the page.
- Hourly budget: this means that BudgetiX will attempt to delivery the impression budget you enter below every single hour, also ignoring the Traffic Weight settings.
Campaign Budget settings are stored in a table that’s created when you install the plugin, so it does not interfere with the core application in any way.
A license of the BudgetiX plugin costs a one time fee of 2.500 euro, which gives you a life time license. This fee also includes technical support and any software upgrades we release during the first 12 months after you’ve purchased the license. From the second year onward, there is an Upgrade Subscription program. For a yearly fee of 15% of the original license fee (so just 375 euro per year), you will continue to receive technical support and software upgrades. You can cancel the Upgrade Subscription before the end of each term, at which time you can just continue to use the software in whatever version you have at that time, but you would not be entitled to the support and upgrades anymore.
