First Application of Grapeshot’s Keyword-Driven Targeting and Brand Safety Tools on a Mobile First Platform.

WALTHAM, MASS – August 25, 2016 – Adelphic, the leading mobile and cross-channel demand side platform (DSP), and Grapeshot, the advanced keyword technology provider, today announced that ad buyers can now leverage Live Audience, Grapeshot’s pre-bid keyword targeting solution, via Adelphic’s mobile-first programmatic media solution, to reach live audiences consuming relevant, brand-safe content. This integration is the first time Grapeshot’s technology is being made available in a mobile first application, working seamlessly with Adelphic’s Behavior Graph™ to allow brand safety controls and contextual targeting for marketers wherever they engage their users.

Through this integration, Grapeshot’s algorithm, which quickly interprets and categorizes the content audiences are consuming on individual mobile webpages and apps, will work seamlessly within the Adelphic platform, ensuring ads adelphic-grapeshotare displayed alongside content that is contextually relevant and brand safe across 29 languages. This level of precision helps improve targeting, reduce waste and increases returns, globally. Brand and agency ad buyers can create custom audience segments for individualized targeting or select Grapeshot’s standard audience segments for universal applications. These segments can be seamlessly included or excluded in the Forecasting and Targeting products on Adelphic’s platform. For increased brand safety, ad buyers can overlay Grapeshot’s Whitelist or PG Rated standard safety targeting to ensure campaigns run on safe inventory.

“Consumers are turning to ad blocking as a reaction to unwelcome advertising. However, with better audience targeting and more considerate creative, more advertising should be welcomed. This is why we’re delighted to bring our keyword targeting capability to the Adelphic platform to improve the campaign performance and the return on advertisers spend,” said John Snyder, CEO and Founder of Grapeshot. “ Our partnership with Adelphic enables real-time evaluation of mobile web or in-app data at scale, eliminating the need for site lists, and providing contextual reach with vertical-specific keywords and phrases. “

“Quality is top-of-mind for every programmatic ad buyer, and when we talk to clients, our conversations uncover two questions: Will the correct audience see my ads and will my ads run in brand-safe environments,” said Gina Kim, head of partnerships for Adelphic. “Grapeshot’s technology provides our programmatic audience buying platform a protective guardrail as well as keyword-based advertising that targets live users based on context. Grapeshot empowers our clients to shift budgets with the assurance that their ads are served on relevant content and on sites that are appropriate for the brand.”
