Payoff Pilot Selects CAKE by Accelerize to Fuel its New Lead Management Engine

Personal Finance Management Hub Uses CAKE SaaS Platform to Capture, Validate and Distribute Leads in Real-time

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – March 30, 2016 – Accelerize (OTCQB: ACLZ) (OTCBB: ACLZ) and its digital marketing software division CAKE, today announced that Payoff Pilot, a provider of personal finance management resources, has deployed the CAKE SaaS platform to power its performance marketing program and lead management engine. Payoff Pilot selected CAKE due to its proven, scalable solution that delivers quick, precise, targeted distribution of leads and accurate reporting. With CAKE, Payoff Pilot can now customize programs, secure valuable insights into how to optimize each lead and scale as the company continues to grow.

Payoff Pilot is a centralized, online hub for consumers with debt to find helpful personal finance resources. The company’s lead generation program focuses on student loan consolidation, credit card debt consolidation (debt management plans), mortgage and debt validation/settlement. Using CAKE, Payoff Pilot accurately sources, scores and tags inbound leads, then distributes them in real-time to its sister companies and partners.

“Leads begin to diminish in value every second they remain untouched. When looking for a solution, we knew a top priority was to find a lead management engine that would quickly and accurately distribute leads,” said Eric Itzkowitz, Vice President, Marketing for K South Digital (and Payoff Pilot). “CAKE is already proving to be a great choice. We also love the system’s flexible parameter mapping and validators.”

Payoff Pilot advertises on major advertising platforms and collaborates with other high-quality traffic partners. Prior to using CAKE, Payoff Pilot was looking to find a surefire way to accept, tag and distribute leads, as well as market an affiliate program with the ability to create custom offers and varied payouts.

“The company’s mission is to help people with a true concern for their debt, find and learn about options to help them plan for and reach financial freedom,” said Itzkowitz. “Using CAKE helps us accomplish this goal. Additionally, CAKE’s intuitive dashboard and detailed reporting delivers insights into the performance of our industry-specific landing pages, which we use to further optimize for higher conversion. For example, we noticed that one of our high-performing landing pages was receiving many clicks, but zero conversions. This prompted us to immediately review our data and make a prioritized list of changes, which we immediately put into effect, thus saving us money.”

For many consumers, digital channels have become the primary touchpoints through which they pay bills, move money and manage their finances. To reach these consumers, the financial services sector will be the third-biggest spender on US digital advertising in 2015, investing $7.19 billion, according to eMarketer.

“More and more financial tech companies are now searching for ways to optimize their digital marketing campaigns,” said Santi Pierini, CAKE President and Chief Operating Officer of Accelerize. “When Payoff Pilot needed to capture, validate and distribute its online leads in real-time, they turned to CAKE. Payoff Pilot benefits from the advantages of our SaaS product, which makes lead distribution faster and more targeted than ever before, without having to sacrifice optimum flexibility and ease of use.”
