Simpli.fi Extends Capabilities of Its Programmatic Platform

Simpli.fi, which brings the power of programmatic advertising to localized campaigns, today announced its Geo-Fencing capability, a unique location-based ad targeting solution that helps businesses drive mobile ad performance and reach. Geo-Fencing, which can be accessed directly from within the Simpli.fi user interface, allows advertisers to use latitude and longitude data to precisely target consumers within defined, customizable geographic areas, such as a specific store location, auto dealer, mall, airport, or sporting venue.

“Our Geo-Fencing solution combines the scale of programmatic with the accuracy of GPS, and represents a leap forward for localized advertising. Combining our reach and accuracy with the transparency, optimization and reporting that Simpli.fi is known for, Geo-Fencing is a smart choice for advertisers targeting local markets.”

The proliferation of smart phone usage enables advertisers to reach consumers with highly relevant ads based on the users’ recent or current location. Recent reports show that more than 50 percent of consumers actively respond to local, geo-based advertisements. The combination of increased smart phone usage and the increasing effectiveness of targeted mobile advertisements has created demand for Simpli.fi’s Geo-Fencing capability, which takes advantage of the company’s ability to optimize custom audiences for the needs of local advertisers.
