Morphio integrates all Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and LinkedIn marketing analytics products so that digital marketers and business leaders can assign and automatically track financial results in addition to measuring, monitoring and optimizing tactical key performance indicators.“2020 will be the first time in history that US advertisers will spend more on digital than traditional media.
