Marchex, Inc. (NASDAQ: MCHX), the leader in mobile and call performance, today announced an enhanced partnership with Kenshoo ( www.kenshoo.com), the global leader in premium digital marketing technology, to make it easier for digital agencies, media companies, publishers and others managing local business campaigns to increase the number of phone calls generated from paid search ads and gain insight into how these campaigns perform.

This improves the setup, management and reporting of tracked phone calls for Kenshoo’s clients across desktop and mobile search campaigns and automatically optimizes for continued success. “Kenshoo recognizes Marchex as a leader in call analytics, and our partnership continues a long history of Kenshoo offering its clients best-in-class digital marketing solutions,” said Will Martin-Gill, general manager of Kenshoo Search. “This integration makes it simple for Kenshoo clients to set up Call Analytics to identify key customer insights and drive greater performance.” After enabling Call Analytics, Kenshoo Local clients can utilize call data by:
