Visual IQ Bolsters Cross-Device Attribution Measurement through a Partnership with Facebook’s Atlas
Visual IQ Clients Will Now Get People-Based Insights to Help Them Make Smarter Investments
Needham, Mass. – September 22, 2016 – Visual IQ, the leading cross channel marketing attribution software provider, today announced a partnership with Facebook’s Atlas. Through the partnership, Visual IQ will offer marketing insights to its customers who are advertising across different devices, including desktops, smartphones and tablets.
Visual IQ will gain people-based insights from Facebook’s Atlas ad server to provide a comprehensive view of how media spend is impacted across all different devices, both web browser-based and within a mobile application. Approximately 1.71B people access Facebook every month, and many of them use Facebook across multiple devices and browsers. By combining the advanced attribution methodology within Visual IQ’s IQ Intelligence Suite with people-based insights from Atlas, advertisers will receive a more accurate understanding of the true impact of their digital media on performance metrics across channels and tactics and will be able to confidently make more informed mobile optimization decisions.
Additionally, the partnership will also support those who are advertising on Facebook but not necessarily using the Atlas ad server. This new integration will ensure that information about specific Facebook campaigns, including desktop, mobile web and mobile app as well as Facebook owned apps such as Instagram, is included during the attribution process. This gives marketers the tools they need to understand how their Facebook ads are impacting their other media and vice versa.
“Facebook knows people, and this partnership gives us the ability to help our customers understand the effectiveness of their cross-device campaigns in a way that was never before possible,” said Manu Mathew, CEO and co-founder, Visual IQ. “We’re pleased to be selected as the first independent attribution partner of choice for Facebook and this recognition underscores our commitment to pushing the boundaries of what marketing attribution can deliver.”
“The integration is currently underway, with joint customers already seeing valuable benefits from the new partnership. A Fortune 100 customer with a large mobile presence was able to link mobile investments across desktops, smartphones, tablets and other devices for a holistic view of how all devices shape the customer journey and impact sales. By leveraging the powerful cross-device attribution solution powered by Visual IQ and Atlas, the client unveiled optimization opportunities within its mobile placements that would generate an increase of 20 percent in sales—all without an increase in media spend. O2, the commercial brand of Telefónica UK Limited, is another early adopter who will benefit from the partnership. The company will be able to understand how their full investment in Facebook properties (both in-app and browser) impacts performance, and how these placements work in combination with other channels and tactics to drive business value.
