The Veritone Platform helped turn unheard digital files into useful weapons to gain a competitive advantage. Given the limits of time and human resources, it would have been virtually impossible to find and quickly use the direct quotes of the opponent from tracker videos and other sources.

Veritone Politics provided the Ashcroft for Missouri campaign with information and political intelligence within minutes, strengthening the candidate’s relationship with local radio hosts and constituents. Veritone played a valuable part in honing the message, being a nimble part of the arsenal needed to win an election for a seat that was held by the opposing party for most of the past seven decades.
