Frost & Sullivan Applauds AdTheorent’s Exceptional Growth in the Digital Advertising Industry

AdTheorent has demonstrated a keen focus on value-driven innovation: developing data-driven technologies and enhancing operational efficiencies for its client partner

Mountain View, California — June 2, 2016 — Based on recent analysis of the digital advertising industry, Frost & Sullivan today announced that it recognizes AdTheorent as the recipient of the 2016 North American Growth Excellence Leadership Award. AdTheorent’s futuristic, data-driven predictive solutions for digital advertising leverage technologies such as machine learning, advanced tracking and attribution, and cross-environment mapping to deliver superior results to advertisers. With these solutions, AdTheorent has set the bar for customer value in the North American digital advertising market.

AdTheorent has consistently delivered higher value than standalone programmatic solutions by providing best in class full-service and results-driven programmatic advertising services. AdTheorent leverages Big Data solutions, including machine learning fueled by first, second and third-party data, to identify the right audience for individual ad campaigns, ultimately boosting engagement and delivering measurable ROI for its clients. Additionally, the Company provides advanced analytics to generate a view of consumers after they have clicked on or interacted with ads.

AdTheorent has pioneered several technologies to enable true cross-environment audience identification and attribution, which is a key hitherto unmet requirement in the digital advertising industry. The company’s industry-best advanced technology for real-time ad optimization, tools and value-added services, and focus on new product innovation have provided a huge boost to its growth rate.

“AdTheorent’s innovative approach to mobile and digital advertising won it early access to leading sources and a strong roster of loyal, marquee brands and advertisers,” said Frost & Sullivan Industry Director, Vikrant Gandhi. “On the back of big wins, the company increased its revenue by more than 100% in 2015 and is on course to duplicating this feat in 2016.”

As brands and advertisers began to demand more out of their investments in digital advertising, AdTheorent brought to market Barometric® for broader application beyond AdTheorent-run media, delivered through a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model. Meanwhile, AdTheorent’s Cross-Environment Map provides advertisers with a holistic view of consumers by allowing them to attribute disparate user IDs across all environments (e.g., mobile Web, app, desktop, physical address, and in-store) to a single user.

AdTheorent’s solutions are highly modular, which enables organizations to retain their legacy systems. By gluing its mapping to the physical address, AdTheorent helps brands fill their blind spots in user tracking and build robust attribution models. All these innovations ensure customers continue receiving the best value from their investments in the company’s solutions.

Additionally, AdTheorent allows brands to include all types of data sets to optimize their advertising campaigns and to add new ones when needed. The Company’s integrated, unified, and easy-to-use suite of products for data-driven digital advertising has eliminated the inefficiencies that arise when advertisers work with multiple companies.

“AdTheorent has a flexible, performance-based pricing structure and works closely with customers to customize pricing to their unique requirements,” noted Gandhi. “It continues to enhance its software architecture and add new features and functionality to improve the efficiency with which it presents digital advertising services.”

AdTheorent has successfully developed and integrated core components in a seamless manner to deliver horizontal advertising solutions that can be used effectively across various industry verticals. With its innovative technologies and full service approach to digital advertising, AdTheorent is poised for even greater success in the future.
