We've identified that the key issue that causes inaccurate media spend estimates is legacy providers using "advertiser discounts off volume and market intel" or "applying average market CPM rate-cards" to Digital Media Spend.

To address this we go to the source and leverage actual media spend data from agency booking systems as the starting point of our methodology.
