Pardini said WPP AUNZ Analytics enables its clients to leverage the full repertoire of datasets available through WPP AUNZ, the largest market research and media buying group in the nation. It will also tap into credit card transactions and loyalty datasets through WPP’s new data partners, including Data Republic.
“Within WPP AUNZ we have the richest consumer research and media consumption data in the country. By pairing our owned data and know-how with transactions data from our partners, we have deeper insight into what Aussies think and feel, and how they act and transact, than anyone else,” he explained.
He added that WPP AUNZ Analytics would offer clients unique perspective on the customer experience journey. “By connecting the consumer research, digital, media and transactions data at our disposal, we have unparalleled visibility on the purchase decision-making process, and how to get people to open their wallets. This is invaluable for our clients and all the agencies within our group, who can now access this information more easily than ever before”.
