What do you like best?

MOAT is really great for tracking viewability, brand saftety, fraud, measured impressions, and mulitple other metrics that clients are looking to measure. I also like that MOAT gives you a number of ways to pull brand performance either as a power point, csv file, or excel document. Also, MOAT can easily integrate with vendors making checking performance and giving clients updates a seamless process.Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only dislike would be that there are so many other platforms that can measure the same metrics. I would like to see what MOAT's competitive advantage is compared to other data measurement platforms. Also, maybe i'm not aware, but it would be great if MOAT could set up automated reporting, so if I am pulling the same report every week, it can just be sent to me in the final format.

When pulling reporting I have noticed that some of the metrics are very similar which can be confusing to new users. For example, "in-view measurable impressions" and "on - screen measurable impressions" are often the same value, so it would be beneficial if MOAT would offer a one-sheet explaining all of the metrics as they differ from other similar dashboards or offer a dashboard training for partners.Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would definitely give Moat Analytics a test. Some clients really like the ease of the platform and if your company has a direct integration you an easily pull reporting and data performance for clients.Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

That tracking is limited in that it is still pixel based and Oracle does not seem to have a solution for that on the HorizonReview collected by and hosted on G2.com.

“Great vendor and easy to use dashboard”

Pros: The dashboard allows you to split out different inventory as you like, and gives a lot of different metrics which are useful for brand safety, viewability
Cons: If they could make it quicker to navigate between different inventory, or filter by advertisers, sites, etc more easily.

What the Interwebs Say

Users consider Moat a very useful tool for reporting and metrics as well as for brand safety and viewability. They appreciate the level of depth of analytics metrics and that it can easily integrate with vendors. Complaints often revolve around Moat not being any different from the many other report tools in the market and their clients suggest adding an “automated reports” tool. Also, they aren’t very happy about how Moat’s tracking is limited in that it is still pixel-based.
