“We like that we own the profiles and can use them to enhance the experience across all of our offerings," said Steven Suthiana, group director of digital media and operations and Inc. and Fast Company.

Red Aril announced that Mansueto Ventures has chosen Red Aril's leading Data Management and Audience Optimization Platform (DMP) to help personalize audiences’ touch-points across its Inc. and Fast Company line of print, online, event and integrated marketing offerings.

Mansueto Ventures chose Red Aril’s DMP to provide its audiences with a more personalized, more engaging experience. Red Aril works by building sophisticated profiles that are constantly updated from a company's complete portfolio of data -- including large volumes of anonymous web traffic data, third-party data and legacy company data. The profiles enable the company to offer more relevant messaging and content to customers in real time on any platform. and will use Red Aril to offer meaningful articles, videos, ads and special offers as people click through the sites.

Red Aril integrates the data, models it into profiles tailored with thousands of categories of interest and feeds the profiles into content and marketing systems. Uniquely, Red Aril also loops performance data back into the profiles. It time-stamps and scores the data so that actions indicating short-term interests -- such an event that has passed -- get demoted.

The result is an accurate, real-time, 360-degree understanding of audience interests across channels for Mansueto's content and for the marketing solutions it provides to its customers, who comprise some of the world's leading advertisers.

“We chose Red Aril because it’s the right fit for our broader data-warehousing strategy: it's simply the best solution we've seen for building audience understanding using every conceivable data source. We also like that we own the profiles and can use them to enhance the experience across all of our offerings,” said Steven Suthiana, group director of digital media and operations at Inc. and Fast Company.

“We're seeing increasing demand for this kind of full-circle, real-time audience targeting from sophisticated marketers across industries. We're excited that Mansueto singled out Red Aril for its ability to support the breadth of its data management needs," said Jim Soss, chief executive officer of Red Aril.
