Acquired Of Google

Google has acquired retail couponing firm Incentive Targeting for an undisclosed sum, the Web giant confirmed.

Founded in 2007, Incentive Targeting provides targeted marketing services to manufacturers of grocery and consumer products. The Massachusetts-based company offers a self-service, Web-based application for creating and managing targeted promotions. The company’s patented software allows marketers to view sales data and trends, and then leverage that information as part of coupon campaigns.

“We look forward to working with Incentive Targeting in our ongoing efforts to help consumers save time and money and enable retailers deliver relevant discounts to the right customers,” a Google spokeswoman said in a statement to PCMag.

In its announcement of the acquisition, Incentive Targeting said it will now have the resources to “continue the transformation of couponing from a way to give discounts to a way to build business.”

“When we founded Incentive Targeting … we set out to do for retail couponing what Google had done for online advertising: make it simple, relevant, measurable, and effective,” the company said in its announcement. “So, it is both humbling and gratifying to be joining the ranks of the company that inspired our initial vision.”

Google acquisition news made waves earlier this week after a rogue press release hit the Web stating that Google bought wireless Internet network provider ICOA for $400 million. Many tech publications, including PCMag, picked up the news, but a Google source and ICOA’s CEO later shot down the report. ICOA was never even in discussions with any potential acquirers, he said.

  1. can anybody please assess acquired and innate immunity??i frantically require it. i must write a brief essay abt 700 words so its awesome even when i recieve it in summary sentences. i’m able to write it however what exactly ALWAYS turn to be scatterd round the essay

  2. the only real factor I wish to know is when Volkswagen had a lot of outstanding shares. I realize how Porsche could earn money through hedge funds, the way they panicked short retailers, and that i comprehend the whole 75% and everything. All I wish to know is when did Volkswagen finish up getting a lot of outstanding shares. I am talking about it had been like Porsche states I would like more shares plus they simply think it is. Why did not Volkswagen hold a minimum of 50% of the shares, without buying and selling them.

    Also, I understand Porsche bought the shares to have an very lower cost, but where did such small businesses get the money from.

    People frequently make reference to such things as coffee, wine, along with other meals/drinks as acquired tastes. I understand this describes meals you dislike ate first but later learn how to like, but when you need to “learn” to love it does not that essentially mean it tastes bad and you’ve got train you to ultimately disregard the taste? Why would someone feel the trouble of eating something bad tasting until they were given accustomed to it?

  4. What’s natural immunity? and what’s acquired immunity?
