In 2000 Cornerstone Research developed XTrends, a ratings analysis tool primarily focused on generating monthly extrapolations from the Arbitrends three-month rolling averages.


Today XTrends is one of the most commonly-used software programs in the radio industry.  XTrends continues to extrapolate Arbitrends in diary markets, but XTrends is just as big a hit in PPM markets.  In fact, likely more PPM subscribers see their weeklies data in XTrends than any other software program.*


*Not scientifically proven or substantiated but we’re pretty dang sure.




If you haven’t used XTrends yet, odds are you will!  XTrends is radio’s favorite ratings analysis software.  Every major group uses XTrends, most of them group-wide, including Clear Channel, CBS, Cumulus, Emmis, Cox, Hubbard, Entercom, Radio One, Greater media, Lincoln Financial and Bonneville.
