GroupM has announced the launch of LIVE Panel, a new consumer and media insight solution enabling its agencies to efficiently develop precise and targeted media plans so advertisers can effectively reach their audiences, measure outcomes and seize competitive advantage.
With seamless access to a global panel of more than 5.5 million consumers in 30 markets, LIVE Panel delivers actionable insights needed for informed media decisions for both global and local campaigns. The new platform connects with multiple data sources across Kantar’s market leading data and research assets and integrates with the bespoke planning tools of GroupM’s media agencies to accelerate the time from insight to planning to implementation.
“In an era of continually evolving consumer behaviours and media preferences across a wider array of channels, marketers who have the most intelligence are at a distinct advantage, and our unique knowledge of audiences worldwide sets us apart in the industry,” said Irwin Gotlieb, Chairman, GroupM Global.
“Leveraging WPP’s data and analytics investments, we know more about media use and consumption behaviors than anyone else. LIVE Panel operationalizes this knowledge to turn consumers into audiences and audiences into customers more nimbly and efficiently for our clients’ advantage,” he added.
“GroupM’s use of our global Lightspeed consumer panels and the integration of a number of our unique data sources - BrandZ, TGI, Connected Life and Kantar Worldpanel ComTech - into LIVE Panel fully realizes the power of Kantar’s insights capabilities by embedding them into agencies’ media investment management tools. This continues Kantar’s strategy of combining survey, panel and census data for the benefit of marketers by connecting us to the client rosters of the world’s largest media investment group”, said Eric Salama, CEO of Kantar.
