A Closer Look at Flashtalking, Tapad Combined Capabilities
By combining their proprietary Flashtalking probabilistic device ID with Tapad's Device Graph™, Flashtalking has been able to build a complete graph of proprietary IDs. This graph becomes a critical tool for marketers when they leverage Flashtalking's platform for multi-touch attribution. In doing so, they can attribute performance across devices at the user level. The joint capability was put to the test in the Monarch case study.
