Since coming onto the team, Claravine CEO Verl Allen said Comstock has delivered integrations with Facebook and Google, which take in more than half of the total digital ad spend in the U.S.“These integrations allow Claravine to further automate enterprise data governance, so that marketing and analytics leaders finally have a fully accurate, consistent, rich view of media performance across platforms and channels,” Allen said.

The new integrations with Google Campaign Manager and Facebook Ads Manager help accelerate the process to validate and govern campaign metadata across these platforms, the press release states. with Claravine, marketers can synchronize and enrich data before and after campaigns launch.

“Many companies waste valuable time and money trying to clean and manage metadata across the martech and adtech ecosystem,” Chris Comstock, Chief Product Officer at Claravine, said. “In fact, we’ve found that the average enterprise only accurately tracks 40-60% of its media spend because the process has become so complex, manual and prone to human error.”
