Cable-backed Ampersand taps TVSquared for attribution data

Ampersand – the TV advertising sales and technology company owned in partnership by Charter, Comcast and Cox – has partnered with TVSquared for attribution data.

TVSquared’s tech – which links observed consumer actions, like web traffic and store visits, to advertising campaign measurement – will be integrated with Ampersand’s (formerly NCC Media) platform. TV insights across different days, dayparts, networks and creatives are tracked in real-time by TVSquared, and used to improve performance across all TV investments.

“TV is evolving and performance measurement is playing a transformational role in the next evolutionary stage for both local and national cable,” said Bob Ivins, chief data officer at Ampersand, in a statement. “TVSquared’s partnership supports our vision of bringing together different parts of the TV ecosystem to change the world of TV advertising from ratings to performance. Insights and outcomes for TV advertising are setting a new standard, and TVSquared’s platform allows us to meet the next level of advertiser expectations.”
