LONDON, 31 October 2012 – Marin Software, provider of the leading digital ad management platform for advertisers and agencies, today announced that MoneySupermarket.com, the UK’s leading price comparison site, is using Marin Software’s platform to manage its large-scale paid search campaign.

After a thorough evaluation, MoneySupermarket chose Marin Software due to its flexible bidding algorithm, highly skilled UK support team and the ability to integrate, track and optimise campaigns from multiple data sources. With a large-scale search program consisting of more than 8 million keywords, from  generic terms like “car insurance” to high volumes of long-tail keywords, MoneySupermarket needed a flexible bidding algorithm.

Marin Connect provides a flexible and open platform that enables MoneySupermarket to seamlessly integrate publisher and analytics data, ensuring they have a complete view of online advertising return on investment and are optimising campaigns to drive revenue growth. Also, Money Supermarket’s team will be taking advantage of Marin Software’s workflow and reporting functionality to save-time spent on important but repetitive tasks, such as reporting, to focus more time on strategic optimisation of campaigns.

“Marin Software’s highly skilled UK support team has already proven incredibly effective during our complex onboarding process.” said Andy Mihalop, Head of Digital, MoneySupermarket. “In a competitive and maturing search marketplace, large-scale advertisers like us are constantly looking for ways to squeeze additional performance from campaigns.
