Thinknear and Placed Partner to Bring Third-Party In-Store Attribution to 
Advertisers 
Retailers Now Have Access to Mobile Attribution Technology, Linking
Mobile Ad Exposure to In-Store Traffic 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/18/13 --   Thinknear by Telenav
(NASDAQ: TNAV), the leading location marketing expert, has teamed
with location insights leader Placed, Inc. to provide retailers with
valuable insights into the effectiveness of mobile ads in driving
offline store visits. Leveraging Placed Attribution, which measures
over 100,000,000 locations per day from the world's largest opt-in
location panel, this new partnership, first reported in the MediaPost
MoBlog, will allow advertisers to measure the correlation between
mobile ad exposure and brick-and-mortar shopping.  
"In many ways, we're offering the Holy Grail of mobile attribution
with this partnership," explains Thinknear General Manager, Eli
Portnoy. "By connecting mobile ads to in-store visits, we can help
advertisers close the attribution gap and understand how their ad
spend is paying off."  
The partnership will focus on measurement of consumers who are
exposed to location-based mobile ads on the Thinknear network, and
analysis of Placed's location panel data, to provide a solid
indication of ROI to marketing partners. 
"Thinknear's partnership with Placed highlights the importance of
independent third-party attribution to connect mobile ad exposure to
real-world action," said David Shim, founder and CEO of Placed. "The
leadership role that Thinknear has taken in championing location as a
fundamental differentiator in mobile advertising continues with this
partnership. By separating media from attribution, Thinknear provides
a solution that is free of any conflict of interest, making the end
beneficiary the advertiser."  
The partnership between the two organizations will also include
detailed post-campaign reporting metrics that will help retail
marketers understand where and how consumers transact in real time.
Brands and agencies wanting to learn more about the technology should
contact Thinknear or Placed for more information.
