Blis’ Connected ID provides cross-device retargeting for brands to more easily target audiences across a wide variety of devices using mobile location and content behaviour. In addition, it provides location analytics and data tools to provide an in-depth analysis of a campaign’s performance.

The company has been busy growing its business across 50 markets from eight offices throughout APAC and EMEA.

“We firmly believe that location technology is the future of digital advertising and we’re delighted to have received significant funding to support our expansion. The investment recognises the unique value of location and Blis’ market-leading data platform.”

With location-targeted mobile ad spending predicted to be worth $11.3bn this year, Blis seems well aligned to help agencies power their location-based mobile campaigns.
