On 6 July 2021, Comscore, which calls itself a trusted partner for planning, transacting, and evaluating media across platforms, announced the introduction of its Plan Metrix Multi-Platform product to the Indian market. This solution combines consumer’s desktop and mobile behavior with detailed information about their lifestyles, interests, attitudes, and demographics for a unified digital view.
Leveraging this comprehensive view of consumer behavior, marketers can generate stronger multi-platform media plans, identify advanced audience segments, and reach consumers across different platforms to achieve better ROI. In parallel, publishers can better demonstrate the value of their multi-platform audiences and can generate competitive comparisons.
Plan Metrix taps into Comscore’s strategic partnership with Kantar that allows both companies to provide an enhanced digital media planning service to their clients. The product combines best-in-class New Indian Consumer survey (NICS) data from Kantar with MMX Multi-Platform digital measurement from Comscore.
“As audiences increasingly gravitate towards the digital medium, it has become imperative for brands to sharpen their online targeting, to reach the right audiences. Kantar’s New Indian Consumer Survey (NICS) offers unmatched profiling of audience segments on demographic, lifestyle, and product usage characteristics. Kantar and Comscore have come together to create a data fusion-based product that combines Kantar’s NICS and Comscore’s MMX Multi-Platform to provide a holistic and comprehensive view of digital audiences for sharper profiling and targeting” said Puneet Avasthi, director, Specialist Business, Insights Division at Kantar.
Plan Metrix reports more than 300 different attributes in India across a range of lifestyles, interests, and activities, including automotive, beauty, electronics, computers, financial, food and beverage, health, home and living, retail and apparel, sports, and leisure, travel and more.
“We are delighted to introduce Comscore Plan Metrix Multi-Platform in India, giving our clients more advanced audience segments that are better aligned with how digital media is analyzed and planned today,” said Joris Goossens, EVP APAC and EMEA, at Comscore. “Our global partnership with Kantar has already had a massive impact and now as we move forward in this key market, we are confident we will be able to enhance our client’s consumer targeting and digital media planning capabilities.”
