PITTSBURGH, PA – April 10, 2019 — Matrix Solutions, the only global ad sales platform built for media, today announced Federated Media has implemented their Monarch media ad sales platform. The platform, operating as a single hub, will bridge the gap for all Federated Media users to access and view enterprise data holistically in one view while simultaneously providing them the ability to automate processes throughout their workflow – saving time and money.

All the information aggregated and accessible through Monarch, provides users one single pane of glass to view their data.
