(Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo; Katsuaki Sato, President), a company that supports the monetization of apps using data analysis and AI, have inked an agreement to work together in the field of integrated marketing for apps.

The tool also supports diagnostics on the effectiveness of TV commercials as an effective influx route for app installs, as well as integrated management and analysis of the process from user acquisition through to conversion.
Vision-Graphics for Apps powered by Metaps is scheduled to be released to clients in the next three to four months.
