"We’re focused on having a single source of truth for a couple of reasons. One, it provides consistency, and it provides clarity. Making sure that every time you go back to the data, whether it’s every month, or every week, you’re able to tell the same story over time. And then from a clarity standpoint, making sure that you’re not jumping around from tool to tool, trying to get the best metric, providing data from one source of truth helps both our analytic team, our agency account team, and our clients, be able to understand the data faster and ask more advanced questions as they become more in tune with the data they’re given."
