)-- “South Africa, in particular, requires a media monitoring company that can offer immediate access to two things, advertising and editorial. This monitoring has to extend across all media. It is with this vision in mind that DDI launched AdDesk and NewsDesk,” says Tonya Khoury, MD of DDI Africa.
NewsDesk offers data from Print, Radio, Television, Social Media and Online News. This data is searchable and using interactive analytical dashboards, NewDesk allows the client to immediately assess the value and importance of the coverage received.
AdDesk allows the client, through interactive control panels, to see how their advertising is being executed and what the rest of their market is offering to consumers. This service extends across Print, Radio and Television and offers creative and spend data immediately.
In a fast changing market, monitoring media is now an art developed over many years and DDI is at the cutting edge of the newest media technologies. Consumer behaviour is also changing, being influenced by the availability of instant on-line information; the DDI algorithm takes every aspect of media monitoring into account offering marketers rapid feedback on the effectiveness of the media choices they are investing in. Using DDI’s dashboard solutions, all the latest data is delivered via a single interface.
"The DDI platform is acknowledged to be the fastest and most comprehensive service for media monitoring in Africa
and building on DDI’s extensive experience, it is set to be a world beater in the media monitoring market place," says Khoury.
