InMobi Acquires Quantcast Choice to Enhance Frictionless Consent Management for Publishers

InMobi announced it acquired Quantcast Choice, a consent management platform (CMP) designed to help publishers seamlessly align with the rapidly changing global privacy regulations.

Today, mobile ad monetization player InMobi announced it acquired Quantcast Choice, a consent management platform (CMP) designed to help publishers seamlessly align with the rapidly changing global privacy regulations. This acquisition reinforces InMobi’s commitment to having a strong privacy management platform for both mobile app and web publishers, to help them navigate the dynamic and intricate privacy landscape. 

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and newer regulations have made CMPs critical for publishers to ensure compliance and maintain ad revenue. Not having a strong CMP results in lost revenue opportunities for publishers with more demand partners requiring publishers to support more than just Boolean consent standards. 

Quantcast Choice supports more than 500 Google-Certified, 800 IAB-approved vendors, and non-certified vendors specific to publishers’ needs. This inclusive approach helps publishers increase monetization, drive higher fill rates, and sometimes up to a 35% boost in eCPMs in certain regions. InMobi plans to uphold the platform’s free availability for existing customers and remains committed to extending this promise to both existing and new customers. 

“InMobi has always been at the forefront of building solutions that help brands and publishers alike navigate the complex global privacy landscape. This acquisition allows us to bring the power of a proven world-class CMP into the in-app ecosystem where the challenges remain enormous and unresolved,” says Kunal Nagpal, Chief Business Officer, InMobi Advertising.  “Quantcast Choice is a gold standard for thousands of Web publishers; we are excited to build and extend its benefits to the 40,000 mobile apps that currently work with InMobi.”  

“Quantcast Choice was born of our commitment to protecting consumer privacy and we’re proud of helping so many businesses meet the needs of an evolving regulatory landscape,” says Peter Day, Chief Technology Officer, Quantcast. “InMobi understands the needs of publishers and we’re delighted that this market leading CMP will continue to be available as a free solution. We remain committed to our customers and have formed a close partnership with InMobi to ensure a seamless transition.”  

The addition of a reliable, scalable and versatile CMP aligns with InMobi’s commitment to delivering comprehensive publisher monetization solutions. InMobi plans to seamlessly integrate the CMP within its extensive publisher SDK offering, delivering improved data governance, easy consent management, and heightened privacy control, thereby ensuring full compliance with global privacy regulations and fostering trust with their audiences.  

The transition of Quantcast Choice customers to InMobi’s offering is set to begin in the coming months, with the launch of the new publisher offering expected in the coming months.
