Local radio operator, UKRD, has joined forces with Nordic company, Exaget, to deliver a new, locally focussed way of targeting geographically specific ads through the groups in-house developed mobile phone apps.

The patent pending system, developed by Exaget, affords radio stations the opportunity to deliver locally specific and targeted ads via the groups in-house produced mobile applications, is to launch shortly and then rolled out across the portfolio of stations.

“This is a really exciting development for UKRD stations and takes full advantage of the new digital landscape we are all operating within,” said James Wenger, the group’s Chief Technology Officer.

“Being able to target listeners with geographically specific campaigns and information, which they can then respond to at the click of an icon, adds hugely to the effectiveness of what we are delivering for our advertisers. Producing our own in house apps means we can move this along in any direction we want and it’s a great example of what we are doing at UKRD to take full advantage of the opportunity that the new digital landscape affords us,” he said.

CEO and Founder of Exaget, Shankar Meembat, said that he was delighted to be working on such an exciting venture with UKRD and looked forward to seeing the results of what is “a great opportunity and partnership.”
