Amplitude Launches Campaign Reporting to Extend Insights Deeper into Marketing and Growth Performance Metrics

Amplitude | May 26, 2022

Amplitude Launches Campaign Reporting to Extend Insights Deeper
Amplitude, Inc. the pioneer in digital optimization, today announced new Campaign Reporting tools with self-service insights into digital marketing investments. Now, in Amplitude Analytics  Amplitude’s #1 ranked product analytics solution marketing and product teams can measure campaign and channel performance alongside downstream product metrics like user engagement and retention. Campaign Reporting gives teams unprecedented visibility into metrics across the entire funnel, all in a single system. Additional new features include outcome-focused Metrics and Data Tables that empower teams to discover how their marketing programs and product usage meaningfully affect key business outcomes such as sales and revenue. Together, these tools empower cross-functional teams to quickly close the insights-to-action loop and make better business decisions.

Traditionally, there’s been a disconnect between product and campaign data. Organizations leverage product analytics for visibility into customer behaviors and product changes, but struggle to connect marketing performance metrics like attributing user growth to specific channels. According to Gartner®, “digital analytics markets are colliding and converging as vendors blur the lines between categories such as product analytics and digital experience analytics (DXA) and branch into adjacent markets such as customer journey analytics.” [1] For the first time, Amplitude is bringing both marketing and product teams together in a single system to understand how their investments drive growth.

Key innovations include:
  • Campaign Reporting — With Amplitude’s new Campaign Reporting capabilities, businesses can see which acquisition channels users are coming from across organic and paid sources, understand how marketing programs impact product KPIs using built-in attribution modeling, and understand cross-channel return on ad investments with brand new integrations into their advertising data platforms.
  • Metrics — With new outcome-based Metrics from Amplitude, product and marketing teams can quickly create a standard set of metrics that make it easy to connect behaviors with outcomes such as sales or revenue. Teams can now align around common definitions for the metrics that matter most to their business and make faster decisions with trusted insights.
  • Tables – With new Data Tables, customers can measure multiple KPIs in a single view in order to compare and make decisions about their business. Data tables allow for more flexible reporting so marketing and product can have a side-by-side analysis of metrics across the entire customer journey.


"Using Amplitude, we're able to reduce the time needed to answer the most important metrics about our business including how our e-commerce channel drives new customer activations, With new campaign reporting and attribution built into Amplitude, we can now understand the entire customer journey from acquisition to retention to monetization, and gain full visibility into our product growth metrics, including what channels and campaigns are driving important revenue metrics."

Sheena Green, Director of Digital Insights and Analytics at Mint Mobile

“Traditionally, marketing, product, and analytics teams have all relied on separate tools to do their jobs, but today, this siloed approach is no longer effective as organizations seek to understand how every decision and action impacts their most important metrics,” said Justin Bauer, Chief Product Officer at Amplitude. “With these customer needs in mind, we’re doubling down on digital analytics and investing in new tools that will provide holistic product insights faster. The introduction of campaign reporting, outcome metrics, and data tables make it easier for teams to consolidate their analytics solutions while expanding the types of metrics they can track across the end-to-end customer journey.”

Daon Partners with Neustar to Enhance Identity Proofing and Verification with ANI Validation Technology

Daon | August 29, 2022

Daon, the digital identity trust company, today announced a partnership with Neustar that enables Daon to provide an integrated solution for deterministic authentication through automatic number identification (ANI) validation. The solution is designed to reduce fraud and mitigate call spoofing — a method of scamming that undermines trust in the caller ID process. The partnership with Neustar will augment the Daon IdentityX® library of biometric algorithms with Neustar Authentication Plus and Account Link solutions. These solutions provide deterministic and probabilistic device and phone number identity proofing before the call is connected, providing contact centers the ability to provide a frictionless authentication experience. By integrating Neustar’s communication solutions, phone calls and devices used to make those calls will undergo real-time inspection to ensure accurate, secure caller-to-agent contact through ANI validation and ANI match. The partnership will save customers time and cost by significantly reducing agent-led verification. Neustar solutions leverage both ANI validation and matching to validate whether a call is coming from the device that owns the number or via a phone number match to a referenceable database. The process is completed almost instantly as calls reach the IVR through a passive process that doesn’t require active participation by the caller. "Customer contact centers are a critical engagement and trust point, and businesses must balance a seamless customer experience with strong authentication and validation," said Ralph Rodriguez, President & CPO at Daon. "Customer contact centers are a critical engagement and trust point, and businesses must balance a seamless customer experience with strong authentication and validation," said Ralph Rodriguez, President & CPO at Daon. "By incorporating Neustar's ANI validation and matching technology into our IdentityX contact center solution, we are better able to protect our customers from the onslaught of fraudsters. We want to provide our customers with solutions they can trust, and this partnership allows us to do just that." According to YouMail’s Robocall Index, in May 2022, call spoofing averaged 4.1 billion calls a month over the past year, equating to about 1,500 calls per second. Criminals often use call spoofing to replace their calling number with the number of a real customer. ANI matching and ANI validation work together to ensure a spoofed number will not be matched to a customer’s account. “Over the years, call spoofing has increased substantially, impacting both the customer experience and cost centers for many businesses,” said Tom McNeal, Vice President and General Manager of the Public Sector and Partner Channel at Neustar. “The partnership with Daon provides our mutual customers a more comprehensive and powerful solution to mitigate the damages of inbound call fraud by adding passive voice authentication to the workflow seamlessly enabling contact center representatives to focus on the needs of that customer instead of having to challenge their authenticity.” About Daon Daon, www.daon.com, is an innovator in developing and deploying biometric authentication and identity assurance solutions worldwide. Daon has pioneered methods for securely and conveniently combining biometric and identity capabilities across multiple channels with large-scale deployments that span financial institutions, insurance, telcos, travel and the public sector. Daon’s IdentityX® platform provides an inclusive, trusted digital security experience, enabling the creation, authentication and recovery of a user’s identity and allowing businesses to conduct transactions with any consumer, through any medium, with total confidence.
