LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY, USA, July 9, 2024 / -- OpenBrand, a leading market intelligence platform powered by AI-driven insights, announced the acquisition of TraQline, marking a significant step in the company's expansion into the market measurement space.

Greg Munves, CEO of OpenBrand, stated, "The acquisition of TraQline is a strategic move that significantly enhances the power and reach of our platform. By integrating TraQline’s rich market measurement data with our existing 4Ps and Media data, we can now provide a comprehensive solution that helps our customers not only understand why market share shifts are occurring, but also measure the magnitude of those shifts. Customers will benefit from deeper, more actionable insights, enabling them to make informed decisions and stay ahead of the competition in their markets. This acquisition is a critical step in our mission to deliver unparalleled market intelligence and create an unfair advantage for our customers."

Dave Stevenson, President of TraQline, added, “When I was approached by Greg and the team at OpenBrand, it was clear that this was an ideal opportunity for TraQline to enter its next phase of growth. The capabilities that OpenBrand offers in capturing and delivering timely, accurate data align perfectly with our mission.
