Another MMP, Apsalar, offers "all-in-one" app analytics, data decisioning and ad placement. Its product team has developed an API solution allowing HasOffers customers to use Apsalar tracking for Facebook with their existing HasOffers SDK – with the eventual goal being an installation of Apsalar's full SDK. Like Kochava, Apsalar has published guidelines for mobile apps seeking a new attribution solution.
The tool, said company CEO Michael Oiknine, also works in conjunction with other mobile measurement solutions.
Meanwhile HasOffers is working hard to hold on to its existing customers – advising them to directly install the Facebook SDK, and to measure it alongside its platform. The company is also preparing to release a top 10 list of mobile advertising partners besides Facebook.
"There is a story to tell that Facebook's not the only player in this ecosystem,” said HasOffers CEO Peter Hamilton.
Here's a quick rundown of some other MMP tracking vendors:
