New York, NY [Jacob K. Javits Convention Center], Jan. 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Koupon Media, the leader in mobile offer management, today announced it has integrated GimbalTM, a product of Qualcomm Retail Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, into its mobile offer management platform, enabling retailers to target shoppers by providing them with relevant content as they enter micro and macro locations. Gimbal complements Koupon Media's platform by providing real-time proximity and contextual intelligence data enhancing Koupon Media's mobile targeting capabilities. Retailers can now strengthen their offer engagement strategy by sending personalized notifications and special offers, based on location, behavior, personal interests, and product affinities.

Koupon Media can help retailers target customers precisely where they are shopping and offer them valuable coupons and deals.

"In analyzing the redemption ratio data across our clients, we found that campaigns that leveraged client behavior and location as targeting criteria out-performed non-targeted offers by more than 15%," said TJ Person, CEO and founder of Koupon Media. "Offering individual customers relevant mobile offers is all about context; it's not a broad sweep campaign that blasts out emails to millions of customers at once. The technology is available today to provide sophisticated and personal offers, and progressive retailers are getting on board fast."

In addition to shopper personalization, location based services play a critical role in effective mobile advertising and shopper analytics. Koupon Media's Location Aware Offers utilize geo-fenced and hyper-proximity location technologies to provide retailers with flexibility in deploying mobile engagement strategies. Gimbal proximity beacons are enabled with Bluetooth® Smart technology and are now integrated with Koupon Media's platform. The Gimbal platform enables brands, retailers and venues to engage customers with relevant, timely and personalized content to their mobile devices, which can drive customer engagement, sales and loyalty. At the same time, Gimbal is designed to respect consumer privacy.
