OverviewSuggest Edit

Placecast’s Data Management Platform (DMP) unlocks location data to create mobile advertising audiences for better targeting and effectiveness. Placecast was founded on the principle that location and time are powerful signals for understanding interest and intent on mobile. Placecast is an enterprise mobile DMP with deep expertise in location that delivers robust mobile audience segments for ad targeting. The platform aggregates location data with over a hundred other data sources, to build data-rich audience segments that can be targeted on mobile through Placecast’s demand side platform. The mobile DMP can be used as a stand alone service to build data rich audiences, or combined with our mobile Demand Side Platform (DSP) to execute mobile ad campaigns. We leverage a combination of first, second and third-party data sources to derive high-performing mobile ad segments, and provide analytics and insights about consumer behavior in the real world.
