MCLEAN, Va., May 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IXI Services, a division of Equifax (NYSE:EFX), today announced a partnership with leading mobile advertising solutions provider, Adelphic, to make IXI's premium financial-based targeting data available for mobile ad targeting.

As mobile usage continues to grow, advertisers will see mobile advertising increase in importance and will demand the same range of targeting options that are currently available through cookie-based online targeting. In order to reach consumers on this deeply engaging platform, marketers will need better data to find and reach their target audience. The relationship allows brands and agencies to buy through Adelphic's demand-side platform, simultaneously leveraging the company's Predictive Data Platform and IXI's audience segments to help deliver highly relevant ads to mobile devices.

"Adelphic is a strong player in the mobile targeting market. As a mobile-first company, they are looking toward the future of mobile rather than racing to catch up," said Jeff Sporn, SVP/GM of Digital Solutions at IXI Services. "Working with them makes our data easily available to advertisers, and sets us up to help them deliver great campaigns."

"Financial data is an excellent indicator of consumer behavior," said Michael Collins, CEO of Adelphic. "Our relationship with IXI, the clear leader in consumer financial-based audience segments, adds another rich layer of audience information to our platform, helping further increase the relevance and effectiveness of our clients' campaigns."
