IAS, dentsu ANZ’s latest partnership to make ‘Total Visibility’ available to local advertisers

Sydney, Australia – Integral Ad Science, a global digital ad verification company, has announced a new partnership alongside the ANZ arm of advertising and public relations company dentsu to make IAS’ Total Visibility product more accessible to local advertisers.

‘Total Visibility’ allows advertisers to see not only the percentage of wasted media but also the financial impact, allowing them to optimize campaigns toward paths and publishers that are delivering cost-efficient and quality media. 

Using a single tag, Total Visibility provides access to the cost of video impressions that were partially viewed, mostly viewed, completely viewed or not viewed at all. Advertisers can then refine verification settings to reduce waste and better utilize every media dollar.

Dentsu is the latest to partner with IAS, furthering its commitment to deliver a comprehensive set of programmatic transparency solutions for marketers who need their campaigns to be highly effective and cost-efficient. Dentsu will now be able to combine the power of IAS’s Quality Impressions™ metric, with programmatic cost and the supply path data to inform and optimize their programmatic buying strategies while also driving media cost efficiencies for their clients.

Angela Tangas, CEO at dentsu ANZ, stated that advertiser clients want greater visibility on the full programmatic supply chain and to understand where their money is being invested end-to-end, just as consumers want to know how their products are made, where they are sourced from, and whether ethical and equitable practices are used in the supply chain.

“We’re committed to driving trust and transparency across all our media and digital advertising practices. Partnering with the IAS, a market leader in digital ad verification, to offer our clients access to a tool like Total Visibility is an important step to building trust and credibility in our industry,” Tangas stated.

Meanwhile, Jessica Miles, country manager at IAS ANZ, commented, “Programmatic advertising growth in Australia and New Zealand continues to surpass expectations, and with this partnership, we are bringing even greater transparency to dentsu’s programmatic buys, which is a win for advertisers across the region. 

She added, “With Total Visibility, dentsu ANZ can better understand the percentage of wasted media and the financial impact in real-time, enabling them to optimize client campaigns toward paths and publishers that deliver the highest quality media and cost efficiencies.”
