Pointific Scales Its Performance Marketing Network with CAKE by Accelerize and Reports 117% Growth in Company Revenue

Leading India Digital Advertising Company Taps into CAKE’s Powerful Tracking and Analytics Platform to Support Expansion

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – March 21, 2016 – Accelerize (OTCQB: ACLZ) (OTCBB: ACLZ) and its digital marketing software division CAKE, today announced that Pointific, an end-to-end digital solution provider with a key focus on digital advertising, has leveraged CAKE’s SaaS solution to help grow its performance marketing business 117% in the first to second year and 71% in the third year. Pointific initially signed with CAKE in 2014. Since then, CAKE’s scalable, innovative platform has enabled Pointific to expand its network to now include more than 263 publishers, strengthen partner relationships and seamlessly manage digital marketing campaigns in real-time.

Operating primarily in India and Southeast Asia, Pointific engages customers by monetizing mobile, rich media, performance and display campaigns ensuring higher returns, prompt payments and real-time optimization.

“We experienced frustrations with a third-party performance marketing platform and decided to shift Pointific’s business to CAKE’s SaaS Solution two years ago. To this day, we are very confident in the decision we made. CAKE has proven to be the perfect solution,” said Mukesh Bajpai, Co-founder and Director of Pointific.

“CAKE’s user-friendly interface, detailed reporting, quality traffic control and mobile app are all capabilities that have helped us scale our network business,” said Bajpai. “Furthermore, CAKE’s superior customer service and account management further validated our decision. The CAKE team provided proactive solutions to increase efficiencies and ROI. The winning combination of CAKE’s robust tracking solution and world-class services have played an integral part in fueling our expansion.”

Prior to using CAKE, Pointific pinpointed three main issues it set out to solve – properly setting up a lead generation program, managing its affiliates and structuring payouts. CAKE has allowed Pointific to:

  • Streamline its lead generation program with features including simple pixel placement, lead validation and access to data in real-time.
  • Efficiently and effectively manage affiliates with advanced capabilities, such as real-time feedback on performance and traffic quality, as well as the ability to track multi-channel campaigns for multiple clients.
  • Set price payouts by campaign for each conversion or event, accurately measuring the performance across affiliates and campaigns by CPA, CPM, CPC or revshare.

According to Statista, between 2013 and 2018, India is estimated to be the second fastest growing advertising market in Asia. The expectation for growth is 10.7% annually.

“In today’s shifting landscape, digital marketers need to track performance, monitor spend and optimize campaigns all within real-time,” said Santi Pierini, CAKE President and Chief Operating Officer of Accelerize. “We are thrilled to equip digital marketers like Pointific with the tools necessary to meet these requirements. CAKE allows teams to proactively monitor traffic quality, increase efficiencies and enhance performance, allowing them to capitalize on the exciting opportunities in India.”
