comScore First-Party Data and Mobile Data Partnerships to Enable Scalable Demographic Reporting in validated Campaign Essentials™ (vCE®)
TORONTO, Sept. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- comScore, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCOR), a global leader in digital media analytics, today announced its plans to make daily reporting of unduplicated audience and validation metrics available in validated Campaign Essentials™ (vCE®) for Canadian campaigns. Canadian advertisers are already able to leverage vCE to measure ad viewability for mobile ad campaigns across smartphones and tablets. Soon, unduplicated audience delivery insights, such as validated reach, frequency and GRPs, will also be reported for mobile to enable a truly comprehensive measure of campaign performance. This demographic reporting is enabled through the use of our first party data sources as well as demographic data from partners, like Addictive Mobility--comScore's first mobile demographic data partner in Canada.
"With the rapid growth of mobile spend in Canada, it is imperative that we continue to advance the measurement of mobile campaigns," said Brent Bernie, president of comScore Canada. "We are excited about the progress we've made in enabling viewability reporting in mobile today, and we look forward to providing clients with a truly comprehensive measure of campaign performance with the addition of demographics and GRPs."
Mobile Measurement in vCE
Mobile measurement in vCE will provide both media buyers and sellers with:
- Alignment of campaign metrics across platforms. Enhancements to comScore's existing campaign measurement offering will bring mobile advertising into alignment with what is currently available for desktop display and video campaigns.
- In-app and in-browser viewability measurement. Viewability measurement is currently available on iOS and Android across smartphones and tablets, enabling buyers and sellers to compare the performance of desktop and mobile campaigns.
- Daily, unduplicated audience metrics at scale. The inclusion of validated reach, frequency and GRPs for mobile campaigns will allow for cross-media comparability. Demographic data from our first-party data sources as well as partners enable this scalable, granular reporting so clients can evaluate and optimize demographic delivery.
"Addictive Mobility is proud to be comScore's first Canadian mobile demographic data partner to help enhance the quality and scalability of demographic reporting in vCE," said Naveed Ahmad, CEO of Addictive Mobility. "We stand at the edge of a new digital age where mobile strategy must take centre stage. As brands and agencies strive to reach the right audience at the right time, in-app audience data from Addictive Mobility will serve to improve the advertising ecosystem and move the needle on targeting by allowing media buyers and sellers to properly assess mobile performance and earn the highest return on their advertising dollars."
