Jakarta, Indonesia, 29 March 2017 comScore today announced the launch of MMX Multi-Platform, along with major upgrades to Mobile Metrix in Indonesia with the introduction of data from its recently launched mobile consumer panel. The introduction of Android mobile panel data expands comScore’s measurement of mobile audiences in Indonesia to enable more robust reporting of visitation, engagement and demographics, including new segments for age and gender. This development follows comScore’s appointment as the Online Audience Measurement Partner in Indonesia by the Indonesian Digital Measurement Consortium (IDMC) and Bekraf.

“We are committed to bringing robust solutions to Indonesia, and are delighted to announce the introduction of mobile panel data which will enable more granular insights into audiences and their content consumption across smartphones and tablets,” said Joe Nguyen, senior vice president, Asia Pacific at comScore. “This development marks a key measurement milestone in Indonesia. We look forward to delivering even more data and insights that media buyers and sellers need, to optimise their digital strategies and better understand the competitive advertising landscape.”

“Audience measurement in today’s evolving mobile and multi-platform environment is challenging. The industry needs trusted, unduplicated measurement that accurately captures how consumers are engaging with content across devices and platforms, especially mobile as it plays an increasingly important role in our lives,” said Jerry Justianto, chairman of IDMC. “We fully support comScore in their continued commitment to advancing digital measurement in Indonesia, and delivering innovative, quality solutions to advertisers, agencies and publishers alike.”

comScore MMX Multi-Platform and Mobile Metrix combine data from desktop and mobile consumer panels with data from the comScore census network. This approach provides unduplicated, persons-based measurement of total digital reach. Further, comScore measurement continues to evolve to address consumers’ changing behaviours and new technologies. This includes the ability to measure and credit traffic from third-party apps and content distributors such as Facebook Instant Articles and the Google Play Newsstand, to ensure publishers are able to consistently account for their entire digital audience across devices.
