Seattle, Washington – February 26, 2014 – Zumobi, a leading mobile media and technology company, today announced the unveiling of its Zumobi Brand Integration (ZBi) Platform for Marketers, allowing companies to integrate dynamic branded content into their mobile apps in real-time without the hassles associated with long-lead development efforts, continual app updates or cumbersome technical issues. ZBi helps brands transform their utility apps into targeted channels for branded content, partner marketing and customer communication.
eMarketer reported that 83% of company executives felt that the most important function of a mobile app was communication with customers.

The ZBi platform, based on Zumobi’s award winning technology, enables brands to connect with their consumers in ways that are highly engaging, yet organic to the app experience through a suite of in-app content modules:
- Branded Content Module – Provides targeted, brand-relevant content and messaging to specific users based on their preferences.
- Partner Marketing Module – Presents partner marketing offers and special promotions that are of interest to the app user.
- Mobile Media Module – Extends the brand’s mobile media campaigns into their native app – including embedded video and in-steam, dynamic ads.
