ABC Grants Continued Certification to Comscore for Online Ad Viewability

Recognised for Continued Commitment to Quality and Transparent Measurement Solutions in the UK Digital Advertising Market

LONDON, UK, January 24, 2017 – Comscore, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCOR) today received certification from ABC (Audit Bureau of Circulations) for its desktop display viewability measurement in validated Campaign Essentials™ (vCE®). The ABC Viewability certificate helps the industry to better understand viewability products and compare their capabilities. This enables agencies and advertisers to make more informed purchasing decisions.

“As one of the first viewability solutions certified by ABC, we are pleased to be recognised once again for our continued commitment to deliver measurement solutions that help build greater confidence in the market,” said Martin Bromfield, VP Advertising at Comscore. “Trust and transparency in measurement are critical for the entire ecosystem and this certificate highlights our commitment to help advertisers to make sure ads had a chance to make a real impact.”

An ad that never had an opportunity to be seen by its target audience can’t deliver its intended impact. Nor can an ad that was delivered in the wrong geography, next to questionable content or subject to invalid traffic. validated Campaign Essentials (vCE) is a holistic ad and audience delivery validation solution that delivers real-time insights to improve the performance of advertising campaigns – for display, video and mobile devices.

Unlike existing single-point solutions, vCE provides an unduplicated accounting of impressions delivered across a variety of dimensions, such as ads delivered in-view, in the right geography, in a brand safe environment and absent of non-human and invalid traffic. It also evaluates the degree to which validated impressions reached the campaign target audience.

“We are delighted to verify Comscore against the JICWEBS Viewability Principles. ABC’s Viewability Certification delivers reassurance to buyers that the company has met robust, industry-agreed standards,” said Simon Redlich, CEO at ABC. “It also shows a commitment to transparency that is essential for the continued growth of trust and confidence within the digital ad trading industry.”

The company’s online ad viewability measurement technology, certified for Display since 2014, joins the vCE® Content Verification suite and Comscore Direct as ABC-accredited Comscore offerings.
