The Trade Desk offers first-to-market in-app viewability measurement

Collaboration with InMobi and Rubicon Project enables buyers to activate viewability metrics on in-app campaigns

Los Angeles, CA – September 6, 2017 -- The Trade Desk, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTD), a global technology platform for buyers of advertising, today announced its collaboration with InMobi, and Rubicon Project (NYSE: RUBI), resolving the industry’s longstanding in-app viewability measurement challenge by providing a first-to-market solution for its customers.

This alliance among the demand-side platforms (DSPs) and their supply partners allows buyers to activate viewability metrics on in-app campaigns at scale for the first time ever. Customers of The Trade Desk can uncover which publishers and supply partners support in-app viewability for both private as well as open exchange buying, allowing advertisers to detect and choose supply partners for their in-app campaigns based on if they have viewable inventory available.

“This initiative fosters transparency across the entire industry, which is something we’re always trying to propel,” said Tim Sims, SVP of Inventory Partnerships at The Trade Desk. “We’re in the business of helping advertisers discover and purchase the right inventory for their digital campaigns. In-app viewability is an important step to full-campaign understanding and selection.”

“It is critically important that advertisers have transparency as well as consistent, independent measurement for all their media,” said Anne Frisbie, SVP and GM, Global Brand and Programmatic at InMobi. “By working with The Trade Desk to support MRC-accredited viewability for mobile in-app programmatic buying, we are a step closer to fulfilling on this promise. This will help advertisers gain a greater understanding of the value of in-app advertising, including in-app video advertising.”

The ability to measure in-app viewability is representative of collective work across the entire digital ecosystem in the name of increased transparency and inventory discovery. The supply partners that support this initiative are helping to propel the industry forward by mitigating former challenges and encouraging the adoption of another ad environment for brands to utilize in their holistic media mix. As an industry, scale will continue to grow as more and more supply-side platforms (SSPs) encourage their publishers to participate.

In-app attention and viewability adds yet another element of control to mobile campaigns on The Trade Desk. The Trade Desk offers advertisers the power to carefully select their impressions across all display, mobile, video, native, audio, and connected TV.
