IRI Launches IRI Complete Audiences to Deliver Powerful Purchase-Based Audiences

Brings Together IRI’s Audience Solutions for Maximum Precision and Scale

CHICAGO — Oct. 30, 2018 — IRI®, a global leader in innovative solutions and services for consumer, retail and media companies, today announced the launch of IRI Complete Audiences, which combines IRI’s audience targeting solutions to help advertisers select an audience composition that best fits their campaign objectives. Complete Audiences is built on a foundation of precise, deterministic audiences — powered by IRI’s unmatched collection of frequent shopper purchase data — and then adds high-quality modeled audiences for additional scale, while still delivering the greatest accuracy in the CPG industry.

IRI Complete Audiences is one of the most powerful purchase-based audience solutions available and combines the best of both of IRI’s unique audience targeting solutions:

  • IRI Verified Audiences: One hundred percent deterministic audiences built on one of the industry’s most robust set of frequent shopper loyalty card purchase data, enabling targeted marketing campaigns based on actual verified purchase behavior. Due to its deterministic nature, Verified Audiences is one of the only audience solutions capable of tailoring marketing campaigns toward households with a proven purchase history in a particular product or category.
  • IRI ProScores®: One of the industry’s best purchase-based, predictive shopper insights solutions, providing advertisers with exceptional scale and reach. ProScores delivers marketing messages to a modeled audience that research has shown to be the most valuable to a specific campaign.

Purchase-based targeting results in campaigns that achieve a 50 to 100 percent greater return on advertising spending compared to other targeting methods. By bringing together these two purchase-based solutions, IRI Complete Audiences provides advertisers, agencies and partners with a winning combination of precision and scale to ensure their messaging is effectively driving growth.

Nishat Mehta, president of the IRI Media Center of Excellence, said “Advertisers today face a tradeoff between the quality of deterministic audiences and the scale of modeled audiences, resulting in sub-optimal consumer experiences. IRI Complete Audiences leverages IRI’s unparalleled 350 million loyalty card dataset and proprietary algorithms to provide our clients with more precise audiences at scale, ensuring advertisers connect with their best prospects and consumers receive more relevant communications.”

Complete Audiences is available to IRI clients through Audience Desk, IRI’s concierge audience service, and is integrated into the IRI Liquid Data® technology platform with IRI’s self-service Audience Builder solution. Campaign audiences from Complete Audiences can be activated in social media networks (including Facebook), data management platforms (DMPs), demand side platforms (DSPs) and all other desired channels.
