Receives Highest Scores for Current Offering in Both Reports
Needham, MA – April 30, 2012 - Cross channel marketing attribution software provider Visual IQ today announced it has been named a leader for interactive attribution as well as cross-channel attribution in two separate reports issued last week by Forrester Research, Inc. Visual IQ was among the select group of companies invited to participate in The Forrester Wave ™: Interactive Attribution Vendors, Q2 2012, and The Forrester Wave™: Cross Channel Attribution Providers, Q2 2012. The company is cited as a Leader in both evaluations.
The Interactive Attribution Wave assessed eight vendors across 45 criteria and Visual IQ received the highest scores in quality of methodology, reporting & analysis, and service and support. It is noted that “Visual IQ qualifies as a Leader due to its machine-learning-based algorithmic approach, superlative reporting, impressive optimization and scenario planning tools, and tie-ins with media buying execution.”
The Cross-Channel Attribution Wave assessed five vendors across 67 criteria with Visual IQ netting highest marks in attribution approach, reporting and product strategy. The report states that “Visual IQ has extensive experience in the cross-channel attribution services landscape. It provides a solid methodology, an easy-to-use interface, and comprehensive analytics measurement insights.” It goes on to say, “in addition to its robust methodology, Visual IQ has a staff of experienced analytics and marketing experts who guide their clients through analysis and insights. Visual IQ’s attribution interface allows the user to view its standard corporate calculated metrics against newly-attributed metrics. Its predictive scenario-planning tool allows organizations to determine where to allocate their marketing dollars and to which customer group.”
