Kenshoo SmartPath[TM] Unveiled to Deliver Dynamic Cross-Channel Attribution with Intelligent Bid Optimization

SAN FRANCISCO, February 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Global Digital Marketing Technology Leader Extends Track Record of Being First to Market With Meaningful Innovations

Kenshoo, a global leader in digital marketing technology, today unveiled Kenshoo SmartPath[TM], a new product that is the first form of algorithmic conversion attribution designed from the ground up to improve digital marketing bid optimization. Kenshoo SmartPath applies sophisticated mathematical modeling to automatically optimize bids and help marketers make better decisions about where to invest their budgets. The product launch represents the latest in a long line of innovations pioneered by Kenshoo focused on solving marketing problems through disruptive technology.

"Successfully optimizing for a consumer's true path-to-conversion is one of the holy grails sought after in online marketing. As such, it's critical to apply the best investment strategy across all digital marketing channels to achieve optimal performance. That cannot be done without the right attribution methodology," said Gordon Magee, internet marketing and media manager at Drs. Foster and Smith. "Kenshoo SmartPath dynamically looks at each click and conversion across multiple channels and determines their true business impact. As a result, we've been able to meet and exceed our return on investment goals."

Through a patent-pending methodology, Kenshoo SmartPath creates a unique model of value allocation for each interaction in any given conversion path and dynamically adapts over time based on customer data, market changes, and media mix effectiveness. This provides marketers with an understanding of the actual impact of all interactions and delivers unprecedented accuracy in value-based digital media optimization. Kenshoo SmartPath considers many different factors to measure the contribution of each interaction to a conversion, including causality, synergy, and value of customer loyalty. Through its integration with Kenshoo Portfolio Optimizer (KPO), Kenshoo SmartPath activates more informed media forecasting and bidding.

"For too long, marketers have been forced to pick a static, pre-built attribution model that applies credit to interactions and directs investment strategies, but there is no one-size-fits-all solution," said Moti Meir, senior director and head of research at Kenshoo. "With Kenshoo SmartPath, marketers can leverage dynamically-calibrated attribution that is tailor-made from their data to reward each interaction for its true contribution and inform automated bidding accordingly. We're proud to put this game-changing solution in the hands of our clients."

Kenshoo's long history of digital marketing technology innovation began when the company launched its next-generation search marketing platform in 2006. Today, Kenshoo continues to provide the most advanced solutions available to advertisers, and was recently named "the only leader" in a bid management software evaluation by independent research firm, Forrester Research Inc.

Other results-driven innovations introduced by Kenshoo over the years include:

"At Kenshoo, we foster a can-do culture of innovation and our team of multi-disciplinary scientists and engineers make up more than half the company, so we're able to move quickly from concept to product when we identify solutions that will really make a difference to our clients," said Alon Sheafer, co-founder and chief strategy officer at Kenshoo. "In the case of Kenshoo SmartPath, we heard from chief marketing officers that they didn't have a reliable view of their conversion funnel across channels, and 20 to 40 percent of their revenue was not appropriately attributed to the proper media investment. These are the types of problems Kenshoo loves to solve."

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
The IoTs will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?
