Always-On Marketing Mix Effectiveness
Also at the event, IRI will showcase its new end-to-end Always-On Marketing Mix Effectiveness platform, which promises faster planning, measurement and optimisation for FMCG manufacturers.
Powered by IRI's Liquid Data technology, the automated platform enables clients to check media, price and promo performance in near real-time and correct course on the fly.
“Access to the latest market data and insights takes on average around 20 weeks for companies within FMCG. In a fast-changing dynamic sector, this is too slow,” commented Dr. Constantinos Kotopoulos, ACE Managing Director, Solutions and Innovation at IRI. “Our always-on end to end platform offers a seamless solution that integrates with a client’s own systems and processes and is ready to go. The concept is simple – data flows in, analysis flows out.”
