"We are facing a reality in which content availability is no longer a barrier. One of today's major challenges is offering customers what they individually want to receive. Following the maturity of content accessibility, the long tail of media consumption has significantly grown. Companies realize that their customers want to receive only individually-relevant content and discovery, and are not willing to spend too much time or effort getting there," said Gilad Shlang, MeeMix Chief Executive Officer. "In order to leverage this new reality into additional revenues and ensure a positive user experience, companies need to quickly and efficiently understand their customers' individual taste and then serve just the right content items to the right customer. Whether via mobile, web or TV channels, personalization is the next step in content consumption." Mr. Shlang added, "We are very excited about the GSMA nomination, particularly as the most influential association in the mobile industry recognizes the commercial value and importance of B2B taste prediction and personalization. I believe this marks an important step towards setting a new standard in mobile media delivery and consumption."
