Accelerize Inc. (OTCQB: ACLZ) Breaking News: On the heels of Accelerize, Inc. releasing impressive financial results for the 3rd Quarter - 2014 and forecasting at least 69% year over year revenue growth late last week, ACLZ issued news today that its Digital Marketing Software Division (SaaS-Based Performance Marketing Solutions) continues to build momentum by expanding operations in the rapidly growing Latin American digital market.

Accelerize Extends its Footprint in Latin America - Accelerize Inc. and its digital marketing software division, CAKE, announced that C2 CPA Network, the largest cost per action network in Brazil, has selected CAKE to track and optimize their performance marketing activities and campaign strategies. With the addition of this new customer, CAKE continues to build momentum in the rapidly growing Latin American digital market. "According to eMarketer, Brazil will see the highest levels of digital ad spending in Latin America through 2018 - more than 50 percent of all digital ad spend in the region," said Santi Pierini, CAKE President and Chief Operating Officer of Accelerize. "Digital marketing providers want to be sure they are allocating that spend wisely, which is why accurate, multi-touch tracking is a critical requirement. We look forward to working closely with C2 CPA Network as they continue to experience rapid growth in this important market."

C2 CPA Network is the first and largest CPA network in Brazil, and partners with 300+ affiliates who run CPA offers on their blogs and web sites. The company upgraded from another SaaS provider to CAKE for tracking because it needed deeper and more granular insight into how CPA campaigns were performing for affiliates looking to monetize their content, and advertisers looking to generate more exposure for their products.  The organization also required a more accurate, reliable and scalable solution for its aggressive growth plans.
