JGroup and Blis partner to strengthen location-based digital advertising in the Middle East and North Africa region

JGroup announces a strategic partnership with Blis. Through this partnership, JGroup and Blis will leverage their combined strengths to help brands in the region understand, reach and engage consumers to deliver measurable results.

JGroup, a regional group of companies, with a vast portfolio of subsidiaries and investments across the Middle East, Europe, Asia and the United States, today announced a strategic partnership with Blis, the trusted leader in location-powered advertising and analytics. Through this partnership, JGroup and Blis will leverage their combined strengths to help brands in the region understand, reach and engage consumers to deliver measurable results.

JGroup has added this new capability to its digital business because location-powered data is the most accurate indicator of ’real’ behaviour and intent at scale when compared with any other type of data, and Blis’ Smart Platform provides unmatched transparency, accuracy and scale. This partnership combines Blis’ tried and tested proprietary technologies and product suite with JGroup’s extensive media network and influential digital assets in the Middle East through its digital media arm, Promofix.

This year has seen huge shifts in how consumers behave, none more so than where people physically go or don’t go. Blis’ solutions are privacy-focused and enable more effective planning, activation and measurement for marketers and business decision-makers. JGroup will make Blis’ solutions available to its existing and potential customers within the digital advertising sphere across the region to ensure they meet the needs of their target audience at the right time and place.

We’re delighted to be joining forces with Blis, a company that continues to distinguish itself as an innovative and transparent leader, to deepen penetration of this technology in the region.”

With this new partnership, JGroup’s existing media customers in the region will be able to better understand their customers’ real-world behaviours and create targeted strategies that drive real results.

Dave King, global commercial officer at Blis said “There is an enormous opportunity for brands across the Middle East and North Africa to better understand and engage with their consumers. Globally, our clients trust the combination of our advanced proprietary technology and strategic expertise Blis offers. Together with JGroup, we’re building upon our existing presence and customer relationships in the region, to give more brands and agencies the power to reach relevant audiences with advertising that cuts through and drives real results.”

JGroup was established in 2003 and is led by serial entrepreneur, Imad Jomaa. The conglomerate was built with an aim to connect businesses and people with new opportunities and possibilities.
