After 3 years of R&D and 18 months of customer commercialisation, Streem officially announced its entry into the media monitoring sector on Wednesday night with an event at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney. Promising to re-invent media intelligence, the event featured significant attendance from over 150 key figures within media and communications. Representatives from large corporates across consumer electronics, FMCG, major sporting codes, transport/logistics, State and Federal government departments and NGOs came to witness the debut of Streem’s disruptive, full-service monitoring platform.
Streem leverages industry-first technology to monitor Online, Print, TV, Radio and Social Media and delivers customers realtime news alerts and media within minutes of publication or broadcast, direct to their Desktop, Tablet or Mobile.
The evening kicked off with an address from Tony Davis, chair of the Woolworths backed data analytics firm Quantium. “We are witnessing the emergence of another powerful data and technology-enabled disruptor in the Australian business landscape” Davis said. “With its fast and accurate platform, impossible to match with human processes alone, Streem will allow organisations to manage their media and audiences with far greater effect and resonance”.
Streem’s co-founder and Lead Elgar Welch reinforced the importance of speed and flexibility in his keynote address. “Customers want speed, flexibility to monitor and transparent pricing” Welch said. Streem’s realtime media intelligence infrastructure makes it the fastest, most accurate in the industry and sets it apart from slow, clunky, old-world monitoring providers.
“We’ve been delivering Streem to customers for 18 months and have chosen to officially launch now with the backing of not only a great board, but some key clients including Australia’s biggest sports league, major government departments, household consumer brands and top 100 ASX corporates. We’re thrilled about the growth we’ve experienced and the organisations preparing to shift to Streem.”
Welch also used the launch as an opportunity to unveil Streem’s industry-first partnership with Australia’s largest content producers. Access to realtime audience data enables Streem to measure actual engagement in news and issues drawn from the online behaviour of millions of Australians, enabling decision makers to make informed responses. Combining audience data with realtime news is a game-changer for the industry.
