IAB shortlists four in new measurement tender

By AdNews | 16 July 2014

The Interactive Advertising Bureau has shortlisted four agencies for its digital audience measurement panel with Comscore, GfK and Roy Morgan Research joining incumbent Nielsen in the battle for the valuable contract.

The IAB is moving to capture desktop, laptop, smartphone and tablet use under a single measurement system.

The new panel will also capture all content including video and audio.

Tender manager Ian Muir has culled the shortlist from 23 original submissions after the tender was called in April.

IAB Australia CEO, Alice Manners, said: “We are delighted to have received so much interest in this tender from both local and overseas organisations. Australia has always been a global leader in innovative audience measurement thinking and implementation, and the quality of the proposals that we have received will help us remain in this position. We look forward to making an announcement later in the year on the winning vendor and more details about the products, methodology and roll out.”

The IAB said the the next generation of measurement would continue to give advertisers confidence in the investing in digital advertising platforms.
