go2 Media is deploying the first Mobile Analytics platform in the US for Australian based Amethon Solutions today. go2 was looking for the capacity to analyze mobile traffic on their mobile content networks to improve their relationships with their advertisers.
Here’s a quote from Michael Stone, President of Amethon:
“We are excited to be working with go2 Media as they are a pioneer in the competitive and challenging mobile content environment. Amethon’s in depth experience in the areas of web analytics and mobile services position us with an insightful solution for go2 Media and other mobile content publishers to achieve a greater understanding of both their users and advertisers needs”
In addition to some standard web metrics and the Amethon solution offers the following real-time mobile metrics:
- Handset Brand
- Handset Model
- Screen Resolution
- Wireless Carrier Identification (Country of Origin)
- Country of Origin
- Reverse DNS / GEO Location
You can check out their Mobile Analytics offering here or download the product brochure. I like their approach on how they’re measuring the traffic patterns but I don’t think the Amethon platform has the features Mobilytics came out of the gate with, Mobilytics has similar features on the mobile metric piece plus they have:
- Goal & Revenue Tracking
- An API to the Analytics engine
- Ad Campaign Tracker
What mobile analytics solution are you using and why?
