Dreieich, Germany – 20 June 2011 – ADTECH, a leading provider of ad serving technology and part of the AOL Advertising.com Group, has today announced another customer win – the world’s largest social gaming platform*– Spil Games.
With an average of three billion ad impressions and 130 million players each month**, Spil Games is the global online gaming leader. Established in 2001 in the Netherlands, the company’s vision is to provide free instant-play online games on a global network of targeted social-gaming platforms. They offer three social-gaming platforms in 19 languages including agame.com, GirlsGoGames.co.uk and games.co.uk.
“ADTECH’s state-of-the-art adserver ensures operational excellence within our fast growing environment,” said Sidney Mock, chief commercial officer of Spil Games. “The adserver is very flexible and has the capacity to handle our growth using one simple interface. Another deciding factor, beyond quality and technology, has been to find a partner that is strong on customer support. ADTECH’s unique combination of local expertise, through Adsolutions, ADTECH partner in the Netherlands, and large capacity made them the obvious choice.”
“Spil Games is an exciting company to work with,” said Erhard Neumann, CEO at ADTECH. “They recognised the potential for the online gaming market and have capitalised on that insight. Their local gaming platforms have captured a huge audience and prominent advertisers. Managing and delivering adverts correctly (and appropriately) all over the globe and accurately predicting inventory space across the site are both key roles in ensuring more business for Spil Games. We are delighted that they selected us for the role and look forward to making the company an even bigger success.”
