The degradation of third-party identifiers leaves technical advertisers unable to confidently reach the right audiences on publishers’ networks.  With a wealth of authenticated/recognized users across websites and apps and hundreds of data points about them, Quebecor Expertise Media will utilize Optable’s platform to securely onboard first-party customer data and empower future connected TV and audio advertising strategies.

“The advertising landscape is evolving, and we have to adapt our data strategy to match that,” said Jean Péladeau, Vice-President Operational Convergence at Quebecor. “With Optable we can work alongside advertisers to allow them to utilize their own first-party data sets in advertising campaigns with us, without worrying about privacy concerns.
