LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 21, 2016-- On the heels of forming a UK-based sales and account management team, Marchex (NASDAQ: MCHX), a mobile advertising analytics company, today announced strong demand for its Marchex Call Analytics platform in the UK and Europe. The platform, which connects phone sales to digital media channels, is seeing increasing adoption from large advertisers looking to maximize media efficiency and business operations when a consumer uses a mobile phone to make an offline purchase.

Marchex Call Analytics has been adopted by leading brands across Europe in a wide variety of industries, including AccorHotels, Yell and First Stop. “We launched Marchex Call Analytics in the UK and United States in order to gain real-time visibility and insights into performance of our digital advertising campaigns,” said Kurt Stephenson, e-Commerce Innovation Manager at AccorHotels, the world’s leading hotel operator. “Within weeks, we achieved a 10x ROI on our investment, and we look forward to a further global rollout.”

Marchex Call Analytics is now available in seven European countries, including UK, Ireland, France, Spain, Italy, Poland, and the Netherlands. In addition, Marchex has added roles in account management and sales and opened an office in Central London. “Large advertisers are increasingly looking to truly understand the online-to-offline customer journey,” said Anna Forbes, Managing Director, UK at Marchex. “As such, we are seeing strong interest from brands and agencies in Marchex Call Analytics.”

Consumers in the UK and Europe are increasingly using mobile devices to research and select products and services, and using click-to-call to make an appointment, reservation or purchase. Data from Google shows that click-to-call functionality is a critical part of the path to purchase for UK consumers in industries such as Auto, Telcos, Insurance, Travel, Home Services and Professional Services.

Marchex Call Analytics next-generation call analytics technology maximizes media efficiency for large advertisers by connecting phone sales to digital media campaigns, down to the campaign, keyword and impression.
