Shopper Intelligence, Geo-Location and Automobile Data to Enable Deeper Insights on Consumer Behavior and Purchasing Decisions, Strengthening 605’s Platforms
605, a leading television measurement and analytics company, today announced new data partnerships with Catalina, PlaceIQ and Polk Automotive Solutions by IHS Markit, all the respective market leaders in shopper intelligence, geo-location and automotive information. The new relationships bring together ad exposure and content viewership with consumer behavior and business outcomes on a massive, unprecedented scale through 605’s TV measurement and attribution platforms: IMP4CT and PLATF0RM.
These data partnerships will further enable marketers, advertisers and programmers to access insights regarding the consumer journey by learning about, connecting with and measuring the true ROI of their ad spend.
