There’s nothing abstract about the height or width of an ad – those dimensions can be quantified. We believe the same about media quality. If you’re not measuring this third dimension, media quality, your campaign is missing its full potential. And you’re not getting the most value for every dollar you spend. Integral Ad Science offers a comprehensive suite of tools that gives buyers and sellers actionable intelligence on a wide variety of media quality data such as Viewability, Fraud, and Brand Safety. We’ve also created a proprietary holistic quality measurement called TRAQ Score, which combines multiple elements of media quality into one simple aggregate number.

From Town & Country: "One of the major downsides of summer is that it is the worst season for those suffering from FOMO. As you sit in your apartment, trying to figure how to make the best possible use of your day as you watch the hot sun pound against your windowpane, you can't help but feel like there are people out there whose social calendar is effortlessly filled with the kind of glamorous fun that one can typically find between the pages of a glossy magazine. Well, that's because there are."
