India-based Performance Marketing Network Experiences 78% Growth Since Upgrading to CAKE by Accelerize

Adchakra Selects CAKE for Superior Capabilities to Track and Analyze Mobile and Performance Campaigns

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 20, 2016) - Accelerize (OTCQB: ACLZ) (OTCBB: ACLZ) and its digital marketing software division CAKE, today announced that Adchakra, a division of PK Online Ventures Pvt. Ltd. and leading India-based digital multi-channel network, experienced 78% growth in the last year based on its use of CAKE's SaaS-based platform for tracking and analyzing digital marketing ROI. Adchakra combines creativity, strategy, technology and analytics to launch impactful multi-channel campaigns for brands. Adchakra needed a solution that could quickly scale and proactively track performance and optimize accordingly for mobile and web campaigns. Over the past year, Adchakra has leveraged CAKE to fuel its mobile and performance marketing growth and as a result has properly scaled its affiliate network operations to include additional campaigns and new revenue opportunities.

Adchakra, founded in 2008, has delivered more than 2,000 web-based campaigns and over 1,500 mobile advertising campaigns to its expanding roster of clients. Prior to implementing CAKE, Adchakra used another solution, HasOffers. However, Adchakra switched to CAKE for the superior customer support and real-time, granular insights to better understand customer acquisition and identify performance trends. Additionally, CAKE provided Adchakra with built-in fraud detection to proactively prevent potential business loss.

"CAKE has enabled our team to track performance and streamline our web and mobile campaigns," said Manish Bhatnagar, Chief Operating Officer at Adchakra. "With an extensive background in digital marketing, our team blends creativity with CAKE's technology and data analytics to bring superior ROI to our digital initiatives. We ultimately decided to switch to CAKE due to the platform's robust feature lineup, superior customer service and granular mobile insights. The result? We have been thrilled with the 78% increase in performance over the past year and thank CAKE for contributing to our continued success."

According to eMarketer, advertisers in India are projected to spend $1.32 billion on mobile ad placements by 2019, which will account for the majority of all digital ad spending (60.9%) and 15.5% of total media advertising in India.

"CAKE's mission is to equip digital marketers like Adchakra with innovative technology that fuels growth," said Santi Pierini, CAKE President and Chief Operating Officer of Accelerize. "We are excited about the opportunity to support Adchakra as they expand their digital marketing efforts to achieve greater ROI and increase their market share."
