Waze Selects IMS Internet Media Services For Latin America Expansion

MIAMI, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Waze, the award-winning free traffic and navigation mobile app, and IMS Internet Media Services (IMS), a leading digital marketing company in Latin America, have announced a commercial partnership to further expand Waze's reach into Latin America.

With Latin America featuring one of the highest mobile penetration rates in the world and smartphone adoption above global averages, mobile advertising is fast becoming a strategic component of cross-channel marketing. Through this association, IMS will monetize Waze's dynamic mobile platform, powered by the world's largest community of drivers, throughout the region. 

Waze's location-based advertising formats include branded map pins and banners.  The branded map pins can be clicked to receive additional information  such as the driving route to, phone number, and URL of the indicated client. 

"Waze is one of the most relevant and innovative mobile apps in market, integrating technology with real time, community-based feedback to make drivers' lives easier," said Ignacio Vidaguren, COO of IMS.  "Waze is especially useful in the congested traffic of Latin American cities and already has a significant, established user base in key LatAm markets – providing strong appeal for mobile advertisers.  I am excited to add Waze to our group of leading partners, such as Netflix and Twitter."

"As we continue to grow and build our community in Latin America, we're very excited to partner with IMS. They understand the market and will help us deliver unique mobile advertising experiences to our users," said Samuel Keret, vice president of business development for Waze. "We're confident in IMS' ability and enthusiasm and look forward to working together to achieve excellent results for advertisers throughout LatAm."
