TOKYO and SAN DIEGO, Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM) today announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Labs, Inc., and Recruit Holdings Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; President & CEO: Masumi Minegishi), Dentsu Inc. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President & CEO: Tadashi Ishii), and their joint venture, Blogwatcher (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President: Ken Asano), are collaborating to license the Gimbal™ context awareness solution, with exclusivity for certain geofence and interest profile capabilities for distributions solely in Japan.
This announcement with Recruit, Dentsu and Blogwatcher marks the first large-scale use of Qualcomm Labs' advanced context awareness technology. The Gimbal solution provides always-on, low-power tools for geofencing and interest triggers. Apps incorporating the Gimbal solution are able to offer end-users increasingly relevant, personal, timely and useful experiences, data and content based upon the end-user's location, activities and interests.
The Japan region is a leader in location based marketing and O2O (Online to Offline) marketing, as such, Dentsu is slated to leverage the Gimbal solution as part of the integrated marketing solutions that it provides to its clients. Recruit and Blogwatcher will offer the Gimbal technology to their app developing client base. Recruit, Dentsu and Blogwatcher are actively developing services targeted toward the advertisement segment.
Blogwatcher, a leader in managing and interpreting social media behavior, will power its commercial service wityou® mobile application with Qualcomm Labs' Gimbal technology; software that provides relevant information based on location and learned interests over time. By utilizing the Gimbal software, wityou acts as an agent application or an application that automatically selects and delivers information relevant and useful to the user's current surroundings.
Trials conducted by Blogwatcher in Japan found that end-users were three times more likely to click-through and respond to wityou notifications and offers as compared with non-contextualized and non-personalized offers. Click-through rates increased by more than 60% when commercial offers were delivered to end-users using geofences sized 100m or less around the establishments making the offer. Blogwatcher plans to start the trial service in China in January 2013.
"Regardless of device, culture or language, smartphone users are looking for compelling, tailored mobile experiences that can benefit them on a day-to-day basis," said Peggy Johnson, executive vice president of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and president of Global Market Development at Qualcomm. "This successful first rollout in Japan – a country well recognized for its cutting-edge use of technology – demonstrates that the Gimbal solution can meaningfully impact the way app developers, businesses and brands reach end users."
The Gimbal solution is available to all Android and iOS developers at www.gimbal.com.
