"Tapad is able to give marketers an accurate, holistic view of each customer across all their devices through our Device Graph – an industry first."- Are Traasdahl, Founder and CEO of Tapad
New York, NY (PRWEB) December 05, 2012
Tapad (http://www.tapad.com), home to the first and only cross-platform advertising technology, has announced a partnership with BlueKai (http://www.bluekai.com), the world's only complete data activation system for marketers and publishers (DAS). Effective immediately, through Tapad, advertisers can access the deep market data within BlueKai’s DAS across all channels: smartphones, computers, tablets and connected TVs.
As a result of the partnership, marketers now have access to the broadest offering of first-party data (consumer data collected directly by brands) and third-party data (consumer data collected about customers from other networks or platforms) available in the market. BlueKai and Tapad have also partnered with MoPub (http://www.mopub.com), the leading mobile ad server for smartphone devices and tablets, to provide marketers with access to MoPub’s premium mobile inventory. Marketers will be able to target audiences in mobile by leveraging a similar set of first- and third-party data from their other channels.
"Previously, the world of devices and PC’s were largely disconnected,” said Omar Tawakol, CEO of BlueKai. “What Tapad has done here not only expands reach into all smartphone devices and tablets, but it connects all of these devices via their anonymized user profiles. It truly represents a new era for advertisers in which they are able to deliver targeted messaging to their audiences regardless of channel.”
By marrying BlueKai’s system with Tapad’s cross-platform technology, marketers will immediately see a number of benefits, including:
- A unified view of target audience across all devices through Tapad’s Device Graph™;
- The ability to deliver a more integrated, consistent message across all devices as well as the ability to tailor messaging to a specific device; and,
- Access to more than 30,000 first- and third-party audience segments.
Are Traasdahl, Founder and CEO of Tapad added, “Today, people are on multiple screens throughout the day, and often at the same time. Tapad is able to give marketers an accurate, holistic view of each customer across all their devices through our Device Graph – an industry first. And now, through our partnership with BlueKai, the reach and levels of targeting and segmentation marketers can achieve with Tapad are greater than ever before as well.”
