Neustar Partners with Mobile Media Leaders to Improve Marketers' Reach Across more Channels and Devices

STERLING, VA, September 23, 2014 – Neustar, a real-time provider of information services and analytics, today announced three new partnerships with mobile media leaders that will allow marketers to more accurately reach consumers across smartphones and tablets. Its partnerships with Adelphic, NinthDecimal, and Voltari improve a marketer’s ability to easily target and personalize interactions with mobile consumers.

Until now, reaching the right consumers on mobile devices has been an industry-wide challenge. According to a 2013 study by the Mobile Marketing Association and Neustar, 34 percent of marketers are concerned with their ability to access the right data while 38 percent are holding back on spending because they are unable to accurately target audiences.  This is because the ad tech industry has been ineffective in bridging the gap between a world of cookies and a world that increasingly leaves cookies behind.

To effectively connect the two worlds across all channels and devices, marketers need a single, unified identity that provides a comprehensive portrait of their customer and allows them to deliver relevant messages at every point in the buying cycle. With these partnerships, Neustar closes the gap with its authoritative, dynamic identity that can now also link to millions of mobile users. Neustar’s PlatformOne AdAdvisor Audiences leverages this partner-enhanced capability to offer relevant audiences for more accurate targeting to mobile users.

According to NinthDecimal CEO Michael Fordyce, “Before today, marketers haven’t been able to accurately reach and engage their audiences across all channels and devices at scale, however by combining the sophisticated data intelligence from two industry leaders, this partnership creates the most powerful audience segments for marketers. NinthDecimal is excited to partner with Neustar and enables the company to extend its reach into mobile – offering our collective customers a complete marketing solution.”

Neustar’s identity methodology is unique because of the combination of techniques it uses to link verified offline data, including wireless data, to an identity foundation based on 220 million adults and 120 million households. It is further augmented and linked with more than 15,000 offline and online predictive attributes from third-party data sources from various industries. Most importantly, Neustar continuously corroborates its identity with billions of anonymized daily transactions. This ensures the identity methodology keeps up with the rapid change in consumer data and provides the freshest audience data. Neustar is able to do all of this with privacy-by-design at the core of its identity methodology.

“We’re partnering with leading mobile media platforms to address one of the industry’s most pressing problems,” said Neustar VP of Data Strategy, Pascal Bensoussan. “Identity matters. As consumers spend more time on mobile devices, marketers need to be armed with the right data and technology to succeed. Brands can now rely on our strength of data enablement and new partnerships to drive more effective targeting to offline, online and mobile consumers. The next step in our product evolution is to deliver cross-device measurement to arm marketers with more accurate insights to optimize campaigns and drive sales in order to enable a personalized dialogue at every point of interaction regardless of channel or device.”
