Addesk to Offer Digital Element’s Hyperlocal Geolocation Solutions to Help Drive More Effective Advertising across Latin America

Innovative Technology Will Help Brazilian Advertisers and Agencies Increase their Revenues and Improve ROI

ATLANTA – May 18, 2016 – Digital Element, the leading provider of IP Intelligence and geolocation solutions, today announced that Addesk, a Brazilian technology company founded by experts in programmatic advertising, is now offering the NetAcuity® platform of solutions for its advertising and ecommerce clients.

Addesk serves as representative and reseller of digital technologies for ecommerce online advertising in Brazil. The company offers the best technologies from Europe and the United States to help Brazilian advertisers and agencies increase their revenue and improve their ROI. Addesk works with some of the top players in Brazil, including Addialeto, Vitrio, 4results, Groupon, Batanga, folha24horas, Rede Bahia, Netshoes, Dafiti, Tricae, and Petlove, among others. With the integration of Digital Element’s solutions, Addesk will now help its clients to deliver hyperlocal geotargeted advertising and content to improve reach, relevance and response for a variety of digital campaigns and other business initiatives.

According to eMarketer, a leading global marketing research firm, digital ad spending in Latin America is set to reach new heights with mobile grabbing a larger percentage of those overall dollars.

“We’re certainly seeing significant growth in overall ad spending in the region, much of that can be attributed to our rising middle class and a focus on upcoming global events such as the Rio Olympics this summer,” said Laurent Djoulizibaritch, CEO, Addesk. “We’ve been able to provide strong support with native Brazilian specialists, from implementation to reporting, and to now be able to complement our services with global, industry-leading geolocation technology will only give our clients even more of an advantage in what will surely become a very crowded and competitive Latin American marketplace.”

With NetAcuity, advertisers and retailers can identify actionable information about online users such as geographic location, connection speed, domain name and more—information that is proven to help improve the relevance, reach and response of online activities—all while respecting the user’s right to privacy.

In particular, NetAcuity Pulse™ takes IP-based targeting to a new level by utilizing insights gleaned from mobile devices, allowing Digital Element to offer more seen IP locations than any other provider. Pulse expands the coverage reach of the global postcode-level targeting offered through NetAcuity Edge™ by leveraging new insights derived from Wi-Fi connected mobile traffic and infrastructure. This more precise targeting is based on where a user is located and connected at a specific point in time, regardless of device.

“Research is showing us that up to half of the Latin American digital ad spend is originating in Brazil so there is a lot of opportunity for Addesk to truly increase its clients’ revenues while improving their advertising ROI,” said Jorgelina Striedinger, Latin America business development director for Digital Element. “The NetAcuity platform offers a number of different ways to accurately reach Latin American consumers, regardless of their locations or the devices they use to connect. Reliable geolocation data for online advertising targeting and measurement has been severely lacking in this this region, but Digital Element’s technology will be able to change that.”

Benefits of using the NetAcuity platform for Brazilian companies include:

  • Improve Reach and Relevance – Command a 30-40 percent premium over non-targeted ads by delivering content to specific audiences, reducing wasted impressions and increasing click-through rates and message reach.
  • Enhance the Shopping Experience – Customize website content, language, currency, products and promotions to create an instant connection that will have consumers spending less time searching for products and services and more time buying
