For marketers or advertising agencies who are trying to find better ways to activate first party data to improve advertising performance, LiveRamp is the industry leading data onboarding platform. Once data is onboarded, it can be segmented in granular ways to create unique audience segments using boolean logic. LiveRamp is also well suited for identity resolution. LiveRamp will be a key player in the post-cookie world for advertisers and agencies. LiveRamp is an enterprise product for brands and agencies who invest heavily in paid media - if you aren't investing heavily in paid media and aren't investing in ad tech, LiveRamp probably isn't a good fit.

If you don't care where your campaigns are running, if you don't care about your clients then feel free to do business with them. I would not recommend them to other agencies or business if they have a lot of particular advertisers and clients that they work with. It is too much work for them. If you want to do a self-service model with Simpli.fi, then I could recommend working with them. As long as I don't have to deal with their customer service daily, and my company has the control of the campaigns, I can feel more comfortable working with them. But even still, there are a lot of red flags that have been raised over the last few years and I am skeptical.
Read full review Pros The interface makes sense and is usable. Automated cleansing. Can assist in revenue generation for website. Great customer support. Read full review Simpli.fi's Geo-Fencing capabilities are top notch! The ability to include an unlimited number of geo-fences within a campaign is invaluable, as is the ability to measure the effectiveness of a geo-fencing campaign in driving foot traffic to our clients' physical locations. Our organization appreciates the knowledge, experience and responsiveness of Simpli.fi's customer support staff. One of the things Simpli.fi does particularly well is the education of its users and re-sellers. From monthly webinars, to its Bullseye learning courses, they have a way to make the complex understandable to even the most green digital sellers!

The new platform is still in beta version. Read full review Alternatives Considered
LiveRamp has become the industry leader in data onboarding, identity resolution, and data management. LiveRamp has grown faster than Neustar and the business model is more specialized than Neustar. LiveRamp has chosen to just focus on identity resolution, data onboarding, and data management, whereas Neustar has several business units and is less focused. For these reasons, we prefer using LiveRamp's technology over Neustar.

We have done a lot of research on many other vendors that offer the same or even more as Simpli.fi and have found a great fit for our business. There are many other options out there for programmatic buying! My advice to you is do your research. Don't just jump into bed with one without knowing all of the facts. Ask questions. Do some digging. And NEVER take anything they say at face value. They are there to sell you the product and if you move forward, you will for sure be disappointed
Read full review Return on Investment Has helped us to be able to monetize website. Saves us a lot of time and thus money. Read full review We have been able to leverage Simpli.fi's geo-fencing tools to pry business away from larger competitors. The lack of a customer-facing dashboard is a weakness. Simpli.fi's low barrier of entry has allowed us to scale at our pace without the threat of being cut off in the face of high minimum spends. Read full review ScreenShots
