Netherlands-based cross-device company today announces that it surpassed the 1bln mark of connected devices, partnering with 30+ ad-tech vendors.

“Nine out of ten people use multiple devices throughout the day to gain access to news, buy products or connect with their friends,” says Screen6 CEO David de Jong “as many as 21 times an hour an individual switches between these devices, creating an ever granular trace of digital breadcrumbs.” Ad-tech vendors who rely on up-to-date information of their audience struggle to get insights in this type of behavior, still relying on cookies that were made for a single-device world. “With the ever increasing budgets being spent online it’s to be expected that Cross-Device will be the hottest tickets in advertising for years to come”, says de Jong.

With Screen6’ latest addition to its Audience Deduplication platform, the total number of vendors that rely on cross-device data increased to over thirty. These vendors, ranging from leading DSP’s (Demand Side Platforms) to DMP’s (Data Management Platforms) and Retargeters all have one thing in common: they encounter individuals throughout the day on a myriad of devices.

Data driven decision making

Today Screen6 surpassed the illustrious threshold of one billion connected devices. This allows Screen6’ partners to reach a spectacular hundreds of millions on this planet across their devices. This is an 33x increase from Q3 of last year, when the total reach was approximately 30 million: “The vast quantity of connected devices allows our partners to become many times more effective in planning, targeting and reporting” says David de Jong.

Screen6 will continue its current fast pace to complete coverage: “We are continuously increasing the accuracy and reach of our platform,” says Screen6 CTO Ruben Gersons “every day our partners find new uses for our cross-device data”.
