Freckle Establishes Unique Market Position by Integrating with the Killi First-Party Data Source

New York – April 18, 2019 – Freckle, the global leader in offline media measurement announces the expansion of its measurement and targeting product portfolio with full integration of first-party data from Killi. A consent management solution that allows consumers to control their identity and receive cash compensation, Killi delivers high fidelity data to brands from this engaged user base. This new integration provides marketers with real-time, reliable data that is direct from the consumer and fully compliant with global privacy standards.

In advance of the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA) arriving in the U.S. in January 2020, Freckle is taking a leadership position with the integration of Killi data. By underpinning the Freckle solution with fully compliant data derived direct from the consumer, marketers will receive first-party data instead of third-party sources or pass through from publishers that may put them at risk with pending regulations.

The Killi panel helps brands uncover powerful behavioral insights from people visiting a location as part of Freckle’s measurement and targeting solutions. With direct access to people who visit a location, marketers engage with the Killi panel and ask questions about purchase behavior and brand preferences. Now, Freckle’s global footfall, measurement and targeting solutions provide marketers with actionable insights that are further down the purchase funnel than other solutions currently on the market.

“To survive in this hyper competitive environment, brands must identify partners that create not just a competitive advantage but unique access to real-time consumer insights,” said Neil Sweeney, Founder and CEO, Freckle and Killi. “Killi is a market leader at a time when all businesses must transition to first-party data. Because we’re the only solution paying consumers cash for selling their data, we are confident that the engagement level of the people of Killi will better enhance our audience insights.”

How it Works

The Killi panel is a mobile-first solution. With an average response volume in the thousands, the Killi panel delivers an engaged and active base for marketers. Killi is currently growing at 10% per week and is available in the U.S. and Canada. With global demand increasing, Killi will soon launch in APAC with additional international expansion to follow. Freckle combines visitation data with Killi to provide real-time audience insights across the product portfolio. When partnering with Freckle, marketers gain unique access to the unmatched integration of Killi and location data from the measurement and targeting product portfolio.
