Comscore Announces Global Integration with Flurry from Yahoo to Bring Independent Audience Measurement to Mobile App Publishers
Partnership Streamlines Mobile App Measurement to Help Mobile App Publishers Attract Ad Dollars
RESTON, VA, February 19, 2015 – Comscore, Inc. (NASDAQ : SCOR), a leader in measuring the digital world, today announced an integration with Flurry from Yahoo (NASDAQ: YHOO) through Yahoo’s Flurry Pulse solution, which will enable Flurry clients to streamline application tagging required for unified measurement in Comscore Mobile Metrix® and Media Metrix® Multi-Platform. Mobile app publishers around the globe using Flurry Pulse will be able to easily implement audience measurement across their mobile assets – including reach, frequency and duration – in order to better monetize their mobile apps and grow advertising revenue via trusted, independent Comscore metrics.
“With mobile app engagement surging, publishers need an independent currency to quantify audiences and demonstrate value to media buyers, who are faced with a mounting number of media buying options,” said Kelly Barrett, Vice President at Comscore. “As consumers use an increasing number of screens each day, metrics that are comparable across platforms are more critical than ever. Our global partnership with Flurry from Yahoo aims to accelerate the growth of mobile ad dollars by making it easy for mobile app publishers to meet advertiser needs and monetize their content.”
Over the last several years, Comscore has introduced multiple mobile measurement offerings to help mobile reach its full potential. This includes the launches of Media Metrix® Multi-Platform in 2013, validated Campaign Essentials™ Mobile in 2014 and Video Metrix® Multi-Platform earlier this year, each of which provide independent measurement for media buyers and sellers to fairly transact.
