Arbitron Inc. acquires Zokem, a Finnish mobile audience measurement and analytics firm

The Finnish research and technology company expands Arbitron’s technology portfolio and global footprint.

Through its proprietary and passive mobile application, Zokem customers can track and interpret consumer use of mobile devices and media. The technology also provides information on network performance and effectiveness of mobile ad campaigns. Zokem currently operates panels in 14 global markets and has relationships with a number of the largest mobile industry participants around the world.

“Arbitron's expertise in survey methodology, its currency panels for media measurement and its established sales channels are a tremendous complement to Zokem's mobile technology, mobile expertise and international footprint. We will be in a strong position to capitalize on these assets while continuing to work with our existing partners,” says Verkasalo.
