IRI and Simulmedia Form Strategic Alliance to Target IRI ProScores™ Segments Through TV Advertising

Simulmedia, the leader in performance television, and IRI®, the global leader in innovative solutions and services for consumer, retail, media and over-the-counter health care companies, announced a new strategic alliance today. This alliance enables CPG marketers to activate IRI ProScores with Simulmedia on linear TV to precisely target their advertising to consumers based on actual purchase behaviors instead of traditional demographic data for the first time.

Simulmedia’s Performance TV™ platform is powered by second-by-second, device-viewing data from millions of U.S. households. Its campaigns combine data-driven targeting with predictive algorithms to deliver maximum reach on a national scale and provide brands with actionable insights they can use to benchmark performance and optimize future campaigns.

IRI ProScores, which is the industry’s most advanced purchase-based, predictive shopper audience targeting solution, enables CPG brands and agencies to find their best consumers. Leveraging cutting-edge modeling techniques with rich data assets, IRI scores all 125 million U.S. households’ propensity to purchase across a large set of CPG categories, subcategories, brands and retailers. IRI is integrating its consumer purchase data with Simulmedia’s platform to target and activate viewers on national TV for the first time.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with IRI,” said Tim Spengler, president and chief revenue officer of Simulmedia. “With ProScores targeting now built into Simulmedia’s performance TV platform, we can empower innovative marketers to easily align their digital and TV strategies and achieve powerful results.”

Srishti Gupta, president of the IRI Media Center for Excellence, added, Partnering with Simulmedia is one more way IRI is bringing innovation and sales growth to our clients. Our new alliance allows CPG companies to specifically target households using robust granular consumer purchase data combined with TV viewing data. Marketers now have the ability to use consistent purchase-based segments not just for digital activation but also for television. This will drive greater efficiency and effectiveness for TV dollars, which continues to be a significant percentage of total advertising spend.”

IRI and Simulmedia also are announcing that The Clorox Company, a leading multinational manufacturer and marketer of consumer and professional products, has signed on as the launch partner for this initiative.

Eric Reynolds, senior vice president and chief marketing officer for The Clorox Company, said, Advertising on linear TV is a critical component of our marketing mix. But in a world of data-driven marketing, we believe it needs to be smarter. Simulmedia and IRI are adding a degree of precision to our linear TV advertising that we believe can greatly improve the effectiveness of the communication. We are delighted to participate in this pilot.”

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity.
