- AdPro® Incorporates TAB Out-of-Home Ratings -
DENVER, May 13, 2014 /CNW/ - Intermap Technologies (TSX:IMP), (ITMSF:BB), a leading provider of geospatial solutions, today announced it has received a commercial third-party database license to use the Traffic Audit Bureau (TAB) ratings in its AdPro software. After successfully passing TAB's rigorous technical standards and audit committee, AdPro now provides access to the TAB Ratings Database. By leveraging standardized TAB ratings directly within AdPro, users can measure return on investment for their out-of-home (OOH) campaigns utilizing a trusted ratings system similar to those used in TV and radio campaigns. AdPro users who are also TAB members can now leverage the TAB Audience Data, combined with AdPro's own proprietary data, mapping and analytics, to drive better decision making in their OOH advertising campaigns.
AdPro is the first Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform specifically designed for the OOH industry to evaluate outdoor advertising locations. The annual worldwide potential market size for AdPro is estimated to be as much as $1.0 billion per year.
For media buyers, AdPro offers a complete set of analytics for comparing the merits of different locations in order to create a proposal that achieves an advertiser's goals. For media owners, AdPro provides detailed information that enables them to showcase their individual locations and help the media buyers with their decision making process.
"AdPro is used daily by Media Buyers and Media Owners to make data-driven decisions," said Todd Oseth, Intermap President and CEO. "Our newly acquired TAB certification enables AdPro to deliver even more valuable analytics to our customers and partners. We thank the Traffic Audit Bureau for their endorsement of AdPro and we look forward to working even closer with the TAB team as we move forward."
As the official ratings provider for out-of-home advertising, TAB (Traffic Audit Bureau for Media Management, Inc.) is a non-profit organization that provides standardized, quantitative, and valid measurements for all media formats specifically intended to reach consumers outside the home, including billboards, street furniture, transit, and alternative media, such as place-based video networks.
