AdScanner is dedicated to maximize the value for its clients and does not stop in providing the maximum value possible.

TV advertising black-box

AdScanner is not only a great team, but AdScanner also addresses a clear pain point of today’s market. When you look at it, TV advertising is stuck in the early 2000s fighting with the challenges of ex-post reporting, an inherent conflict of interest and an ever-increasing number of media channels.

There are barely any real-time data available and the industry still works with click-box audience measurement as the key source of intelligence. Multi-million dollar decisions are taken based on barely any insights and the key advisors (the media agencies) play on the buy- and sell-side as agents for media owners and media buyers. This represents an inherent conflict of interest leading to the surprising fact of increasing TV commercial prices.

In addition the number of media touchpoints is constantly growing – already today >50% of TV audience aged 12-49 are simultaneously using a second screen while watching TV. But the promise to provide a holistic customer journey, where each channel’s exact contribution towards a purchase is clearly defined and optimized, still remains a promise as of now.
