iMedia International Signs First iReporting(TM) Licensing Agreement
iMedia International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: IMED), a provider of digital entertainment content for the publishing industry, today announced that it has signed its first iReporting licensing agreement with Precise/Full Service Media, an Ontario, Calif.-based multimedia replication, packaging, fulfillment and distribution company. The multi-million optical disc volume agreement will provide Precise/FSM's customers the ability to better understand when, how and for how long people are using their CDs and DVDs.
"With iReporting, the millions of discs that we manufacture, package and ship each year become even more important to our customers' marketing strategies," said Robert Miller, president of Precise/FSM. "Our customers will now be able to track how their discs are being used and what components of the discs' contents are driving interest and traffic to the Web or simply not working. The ability to enhance marketing messaging and content based on real customer feedback and analytics will be a great benefit to our customers. We see iReporting as becoming a key selling point and a significant benefit for choosing our services."
"We knew that iReporting would be well-received by independent multimedia disc producers and replicators, and we are excited to announce our first contract just a few short weeks after we announced the general availability of the solution," said Henry Williamson, chief executive officer of iMedia International. "The ability to understand in real-time how people are interacting with the discs will help companies to better understand their target audience and the return on investment of their direct marketing campaigns. There is an incredible demand for the type of data we are able to produce with iReporting, and we anticipate announcing a number of iReporting licensing agreements over the coming months."
From iReporting's Web-based interface Precise/FSM's customers will have access to a variety of audience activity tracking data, sorted by time of day, zip code, city and/or state, including:
-- When a consumer puts the disc into the computer; -- How long the disc is watched; -- What content the consumer looks at or watches the most or least; -- What advertisements have been viewed; and -- What web links have been clicked.
