DG and Marin Software Announce Search Marketing Integration

Marin SEM Integration with DG MediaMind Provides a Discrepancy-Free Solution

New York, NY, October 1, 2013 - DG (DGIT), the world`s leading multiscreen ad management company, and Marin Software (MRIN), provider of a leading Revenue Acquisition Management platform for advertisers and agencies, today announced an important integration partnership that benefits clients who use both Marin Software`s platform and DG MediaMind`s Channel Connect: SEM solution.  Channel Connect is designed to pass data back and forth between specific channel providers for campaign analysis purposes. Channel Connect: SEM provides a seamless, discrepancy-free integration between the Marin and MediaMind platforms.

Maintaining separate conversion tags for display and search platforms creates the potential for data discrepancies. The integration of two best-in-breed platforms results in zero discrepancies and a seamless, easy set-up process in a win-win solution for fast deployment of campaigns. The improved integration eliminates discrepancies by only using DG MediaMind`s conversion data and settings.

"We are glad to see two leading tech companies like DG and Marin cooperating to this extent," said Marc Panic, COO GroupM Interaction EMEA. "Anything done to help consolidate the management of various tactical efforts helps agencies of all sorts to better and more strategically serve their clients."

"Our goal is to make campaigns less complex so that forward thinking agencies and advertisers can accomplish more within their digital campaigns," said Ricky Liversidge, CMO of DG. "Integrating our platform with Marin Software`s solution is an example of the value created for advertisers when technology partners are willing to cooperate and share data."

"With the improved Marin/DG MediaMind integration, discrepancies are a thing of the past," noted Matt Ackley, Marin`s CMO. "Now the simplified conversion and attribution settings will save time and help create more accurate data for campaign planners and buyers to optimize campaigns."

The integrated solution eliminates the need to deploy and maintain duplicate conversion tags, which simplifies the campaign set-up and maintenance processes. Clients can now get campaigns up and running faster by eliminating the need to QA separate piggybacked conversion tags.
