SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 18, 2012) - AdTruth, the digital media division of global device recognition leader 41st Parameter, today announced that it has been selected to provide universal mobile tracking for MdotM, a prominent performance-based mobile demand-side platform (DSP). AdTruth is providing concrete benefits and dramatic results across MdotM's mobile network. The most striking is the high degree of recognition accuracy relative to UDID. A case study on MdotM's use of AdTruth provides additional information and context.
The mobile ecosystem faces a number of challenges -- particularly when it comes to delivering targeted impressions. These include unreliable (or non-existent) cookie performance, the inability to recognize a device across the mobile Web and app platforms, Apple's planned deprecation of the UDID, invasive techniques such as "swishing" that drop an unwanted identifier on a device and privacy concerns in general. MdotM, recognizing the gravity of the situation, sought a universal tracking system for mobile devices. The solution would need to function in any mobile advertising use case, recognize a device across mobile Web and apps and not interfere with the consumer experience. The company's search ended with AdTruth.
"Our work with MdotM demonstrates the value of our high performance pro-privacy mobile tracking solution," said James Lamberti, general manager of AdTruth. "Our technology is the best approach for universal tracking moving forward. It offers unparalleled accuracy and the ability to bridge between the mobile Web and apps. We're pleased to be able to support MdotM and their advertisers with our technology."
"The silver lining to UDID deprecation is that it led to our seeking -- and ultimately finding -- a universal, consumer-friendly approach to solving a variety of mobile advertising challenges, including tracking and targeting," said Sourabh Niyogi, chief executive officer of MdotM. "With AdTruth's technology, we are able to provide our advertisers with even greater value through unmatched tracking accuracy to drive thousands of app installs every day."
Before selecting AdTruth, MdotM evaluated a number of alternative approaches that claimed to offer the most scalable technology platforms, a long-term answer to privacy concerns, the highest tracking accuracy and greatest longevity. After months of research and live market testing, MdotM selected AdTruth due to their best of breed technology, Web to app bridging capability, on-premise deployment, extremely high performance and consumer friendly approach.
AdTruth's universal tracking technology is available to MdotM's advertisers through the MdotM software development kit (SDK). Hundreds of MdotM advertisers -- including gaming, social networking and mobile coupon applications -- are now able to take advantage of AdTruth's technology to drive and track app installs.
