Nielsen competitor BuzzAngle Music has revamped its music consumption analytics platform in the US and Canada, and has plans to launch further afield.
BuzzAngle 2.0, owned by Border City Media, provides daily reports of physical and digital music sales, on-demand streaming, and terrestrial airplay.
Trials of collecting streaming data outside of the US and Canada are to start in the UK, France, Italy, Spain, and Brazil.
The platform allows users to run over a trillion unique reports, divided by global markets, and customised to their exact genre or sub-genre for each consumption type.
Customers of BuzzAngle Music include major US distributors, the RIAA, and independent labels, artist management firms and publishing companies.
The firms can use the data to plot marketing moves, react to a rise in popularity in certain territories and better plan tours.
“BuzzAngle Music has disrupted the market by using new age technologies to store, process and pull out the needed information rapidly.”
