Quanties

The Quanties are our industry’s way of recognizing the best and brightest individuals in the industry. It is also a way to demonstrate our thanks to the exceptional groups and technologies that make our work easier and more impactful every day. The Quanties are the most relevant and important award in the digital analytics industry. The first Quanties was held in 2018; we congratulate the winners. Previously (2011-2016) this awards program was called the Awards for Excellence.

Quanties Awards for 2019

  1. Competition Awards
