Mark Lieberman, CEO of TRA, said, "We understand the challenge that advertisers face as they continually scrutinize media plans and determine how best to allocate ad buys across TV and online. Ultimately, the success of their approach is contingent on several factors including access to accurate and actionable data. The ability to understand whether a household is exposed to an advertiser's campaigns, both on TV and online, and correlate that exposure to purchasing behavior, all using very large data sets to ensure better accuracy, is invaluable to the process of optimizing and allocating media campaigns. TRA Cross Media Measurement delivers this data at a size and scale that is not available from anyone else in the industry and can help our clients obtain unique insights about consumer decisions to drive improved ROI."
