Introducing Agency Transparency

Increasingly, marketers partnering agencies want deeper transparency into their agency activity. They want to know where their ads running, how they are performing and how their agency partners are driving their business forward.

Our new agency transparency feature allows agencies to become fully transparent with just a single click. This feature can be enabled per app, and once enabled all agency activity, from media placement through ad costs and performance will be fully transparent, reported right in the client dashboard.
