LONDON, April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ve Interactive, the leading provider of conversion solutions for the e-commerce industry, today announced that it has completed a multi-million dollar acquisition of adGENIE, Europe's first dynamic prospecting and retargeting advertising solution provider.
Integration of the adGENIE solutions into the Ve Platform will now augment Ve's cross channel capabilities to include ad delivery, dynamic prospecting and retargeting.

Our clients will also benefit from Ve's international infrastructure, in-house design team, VeLabs development division, dedicated R&D department and account management team."
The expanded Ve offering will now be extended across Ve's 3,500 global client base and the new, unique view of amalgamated purchase-intent data generated is anticipated to transform the digital marketing industry. Said Brown: "Going forward, e-commerce sites will, for the first time, have access to valuable insight on a single platform, that will help them identify new strategic areas of opportunity within both disciplines of advertising and optimization."
