Competitrack uses Promixis Girder for their remote management and automation needs.

Promixis provides automation and remote management functionality for Competitrack’s proprietary fingerprint identification. This system identifies commercials aired and allows staff in New York to verify accuracy and identify new advertising moments after it aired.

MINNEAPOLIS, March 30, 2006 -- Competitrack relies on Promixis Girder for managing its remote advertising monitoring facilities. Using the remote access capability of Girder, staff in New York is able to check on the accurate tuning of TV receivers connected in cities throughout the country and fully operate these receivers with the clicks of a few buttons. Girder is also used to change channels on these receivers according to a preset schedule so we are able to sample channels and monitor segments on demand.

"For 20 years Competitrack has been committed to acquiring new and innovative technologies that give our customers the competitive edge in ad monitoring", said Hans Vredeling, Senior Vice President Broadcast Monitoring Services. "The Girder solution integrated very well with our existing cutting edge technologies, while also extending our next day coverage in remote regions of the U.S."
