Kochava releases new features to drive efficient mobile ad spend including enhanced iBeacon support as well as onboarding links which enable custom launch experiences for end users.
Enhanced iBeacon support goes beyond simply tracking iBeacon events to actually managing your app’s awareness of iBeacons through the Kochava SDK.
Onboarding links enable advertisers to request attribution data be returned to the app, via Kochava’s SDK, in order to offer end users a first-run experience contextual to their path to the app.

SANDPOINT, Idaho, Dec. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Kochava (www.kochava.com), the mobile attribution analytics and optimization company, today announced new features and services to help advertisers exceed their mobile media goals heading into 2015 – a year where mobile advertising will be front and center as brands seek to capitalize on booming mobile usage globally.

Hundreds of our customers around the world are using this data as actionable information and have leveled up on the quality and efficiency of their mobile campaigns globally. Look for 2015 to be the year brands truly optimize their mobile ad spend.”
Attribute Media Spend via Real-World Events with iBeacons
Kochava’s support for iBeacons means advertisers can now track location-based events within the Kochava dashboard and leverage the data to increase retention and lifetime value. An iBeacon is a low-cost, low-power transmitter which can be detected by mobile devices. Through Kochava, advertisers can manage all their iBeacons in a single dashboard and the Kochava SDK uses Apple’s Significant-Change Location Service to ensure that an advertiser’s app is aware of the 20 iBeacons nearest to their end user’s location. For example, a hotel app might leverage iBeacons to accelerate check-in for frequent guests as they arrive at the hotel; a concert or sporting event venue might trigger merchandise coupons or seat-upgrade offers depending on a guest’s location; or a department store may use iBeacons to understand and optimize the flow of customers through the store.
Onboarding Links for Delivering a Custom Launch Experience
The Kochava SDK enables developers to subscribe to real-time attribution information within the SDK, in order to create custom launch experiences for users. App developers may request the attribution source from the Kochava server. This feature enables the app to know whether the user was organic, and if not, to which network and campaign they are attributed. Now developers can ensure that when users launch their app for the first time, they are greeted with an experience relevant to how they installed the app. For example, a user who clicked on an ad unit offering a 20 percent discount can be served a different experience than a user who clicked on an ad unit which did not include a discount. A user who installed organically can be treated uniquely as well.
Kochava offers a unique, holistic and unbiased approach to mobile attribution analytics and optimization. Via its platform, Kochava provides mobile advertisers with precise real-time visualization of campaign data that spans from initial launch through conversion and lifetime value (LTV) reporting, including comprehensive post-install event tracking. Kochava’s tools enable customers to turn their data into actionable information. With over 900 publisher and network integrations including Facebook, Twitter, Google and Pandora, Kochava is trusted globally by the largest brands in mobile gaming, commerce, news and media.
