|As the Australian online advertising market matures with a forecast value of $4.9 billion by 2017, the digital measurement needs of the Australian online sector are rapidly evolving identifying that the Australian media industry deserves a digital measurement solution that meets the sophisticated demands of agencies, advertisers, online publishers and their audiences. Effective Measure, has launched its globally deployed digital dashboard, Enable, in the local market.
"The Australian digital media industry has been anticipating a fresh alternative to the current status quo in digital measurement for some time. The Audited Media Association of Australia's current tender for the provision of a new and dynamic digital measurement solution is a clear call to arms for all digital media industry stakeholders to evolve with the rapid shifts and demands created by mobile and multi-device usage," said Effective Measure CEO Richard Webb.
Effective Measure monitors and measures consumers and their behaviour through over 800 million internet connected devices worldwide per month.
Effective Measure has officially launched the internationally road tested online measurement dashboard, Enable, to the Australian market. Developed in Melbourne in 2008, the Effective Measure solution has now been deployed across 33 countries globally and is the de facto measurement standard in the majority of those markets.
"After personally working in the Middle East and South East Asia for Effective Measure, it is gratifying to bring our global experience back to Australia where Effective Measure was born and has developed all of it's technology. We look forward to working with the industry to deliver a more comprehensive and unified view of the Australian digital landscape. Our model is structured in a way that opens up access and visibility for publishers, brands and agencies of all sizes with a simple to use, single version of the truth," said Effective Measure, Regional MD Oceania, Dinesh Arasaratnam.
The Enable solution is designed to capture the key Media Planning and Buying metrics with a concentrated focus on Media Planning which helps publishers create additional revenue opportunities. The Effective Measure dashboard features insights into both web and mobile consumption as well as detailed Demographic, Lifestyle and Purchase Influence segmentation.
"As the digital market becomes more fragmented our customers are seeking current and more cost effective solutions. Launching Enable for Agencies in the Australian market and introducing our campaign effectiveness solutions which many agencies globally have already adopted will offer depth and clarity to the entire media market from mainstream to niche," Arasaratnam added.
