Brands, agencies and platforms benefit from increased match rates with Tapad’s integration of The Trade Desk’s unified ID solution

New York, NY -- October 16, 2019 -- Tapad, a global leader in digital identity resolution, and The Trade Desk, a global advertising technology leader, partnered to integrate The Trade Desk’s unified ID solution in April 2019. The Trade Desk’s unified ID solution’s objective is to serve as a standardized cookie ID to help marketers reach more of their audience on the open internet. After an initial six month period, Tapad reports significant adoption rates and enhanced customer results since their joint integration in April.

As a result of the partnership, client brands, agencies, DMPs/ DSPs, Data Providers, Mobile Networks and Measurement/Analytics Providers, saw increased match rates up to 38% and more global coverage without compromising precision. With this combined offering, Tapad’s global, privacy-safe digital cross-device solution, The Tapad Graph, connects brands with consumers over 4 billion devices globally.

“There is a need for digital identity solutions outside the walled gardens that can accommodate the need for both precision and scale,” said Chris Feo, SVP of Strategy and Global Partnerships at Tapad. “Through our partnership with The Trade Desk, we are empowering companies to have a comparable digital identity resolution across the open web as compared to the walled garden environments.”

Over 25 companies who license The Tapad Graph, such as Annalect, Semasio, Retargetly, and ThinkCX, have also included The Trade Desk’s unified ID solution as a key identifier in their graph output.

“The vast improvement in scale that Tapad has seen illustrates the value digital identity resolution products can bring for brands,” said Nate Gawel, General Manager of Data Partnerships, at The Trade Desk. “We’re looking forward to continuing work with Tapad to prove that the open internet can deliver the very same benefits many reserve for large platforms.”

Adoption of the unified ID solution allows all parties across the supply chain (SSPs, DSPs, DMPs and data providers) to utilize The Trade Desk’s cookie footprint to increase their own cookie coverage across the global independent internet.
