One executive at a top global agency said, “It’s just like another competitive analysis tool we use, only 100 times easier to use and with more features that we love.”
Aside from advertisers and agencies, publishers defer to Pathmatics to sell more advertising and provide better customer service.
Even top media publications trust Pathmatics data to make a case. AdAge recently used Pathmatics to report on Facebook ad spending—post Cambridge Analytica scandal. Related, BuzzFeed News also leaned on our solution to investigate ad spend of a social welfare organization.
So, you might be wondering, why do these industry leaders have such confidence in Pathmatics?
It’s simple. We use patent-pending Pathsource technology to track digital advertising spend for thousands of brands in real-time. We dig into every detail for you, from geographic coverage, device type, and the actual creatives being used. And finally, our team is always innovating to keep up with the ever-evolving marketing and advertising space.
Read on for more insight into why you can (and should) place your trust in Pathmatics data.
We Rely on Patent-Pending Pathsource Technology
Our patent-pending Pathsource technology gives us a competitive edge. Using Pathsource, we are able to trace the path of an ad from the moment it’s placed to the time it’s served up on a page. Unlike other solutions, Pathsource looks at every step in the process—from publisher to advertiser.
This is made possible through thousands of crawlers that visit publisher sites, and capture even the most complex processes. This information is input into a large data warehouse, which Pathmatics’ leverages to create actionable intelligence for customers.
