Webgains Goes Cubed With New AI-Driven Tracking Technology Deal

Webgains to exclusively deliver AI driven multi-touchpoint attribution insights, via new strategic partnership with CUBED

BRISTOL & NUREMBERG, 14thJanuary 2019:

International hi-performance affiliate marketing network Webgains announces today a new, exclusive partnership with CUBED, the leading eCommerce attribution and conversion analysis company. By integrating a multi-touchpoint attribution (MTA) model provided by CUBED into their advertiser portal, Webgains will offer an industry-leading solution for better identifying and correctly rewarding affiliate partners & publishers.

The MTA model will allow advertisers to track the entirety of the purchase lifecycle, and to decide which touchpoints will be rewarded and how. Webgains and CUBED will process billions of data points each month and will offer detailed insight to advertisers, who in turn will be able to further develop their understanding of the customer journey and build closer relationships with publishers. The MTA will also ensure that non-traditional publishers, such as influencers, are rewarded accordingly if they are part of the purchase lifecycle. CUBED and Webgains will also work closely together on new innovations.

The launch of the collaboration between CUBED and Webgains follows a recent announcement of an industry-first creative, technical & knowledge transfer partnership with Humanise.AI. It is also the next step on Webgains’ journey of bringing innovative and data-driven technologies into their product offering.

Richard Dennys, CEO of Webgains, comments, “This partnership illustrates further that Webgains continues to be the innovative face of the affiliate marketing industry, and also the most adept at securing partnerships with the most exciting technology companies. CUBED is a dynamic and disruptive team of experts, with exciting technologies to bring to Webgains’ tracking and attribution reporting. The new partnership with CUBED will allow Webgains to identify all points on the sales path, not just the final click, and offer the ability to recognise and reward all publishers, including blogs, content, cashback and reward sites, that contribute throughout the purchase lifecycle. Tens of millions of clicks will be tracked and analysed every month, giving the clearest ever view of the influences of every customer’s journey, from first to last click.

Russell McAthy – CEO, Cubed.AI added:“CUBED are super excited to partner with Webgains to support their goal to help their customers better understand the true value of marketing. The seamless integration into their tag means that within seconds we can start capturing data allowing for the machine learning to really take over to create insights. We are looking forward to working closely with the team at Webgains in truly driving the affiliate industry forward using data and AI at the forefront of success”:

Derek Freer, UK MD at Webgains commented “Webgains’ partnership with CUBED allows us to offer full service for the next generation of tracking. As this exciting tool is provided with our GDPR and ITP2 compliant tracking solution as standard, we are able to provide our advertisers with full transparency in evaluating their affiliate transactions within the market leading multi-channel attribution. ”
