Although the Lite product continued to perform well, it became apparent that it was time to upgrade to their Premium option. Differential advertising by screen size as part of our responsive design was essential and the Premium version of 51Degrees enables us to optimise and increase our tablet traffic by 300%delivering tablet users a better experience and allowed us to target our tablet adverts against these users. This has increased tablet revenue by 40%."
