The relationship will allow MetTel to expand its business offerings by bringing Gravy's validated customer behavior-based insights to its enterprise customers.
With Gravy, MetTel customers can, for the first time, know the interests and affinities of their mobile users based on the places they go and the local events and activities they attend in their daily lives.
