Jivox Joins Industry Leaders GroupM, Kantar, WPP Data Alliance and CrayonData to Power FAST’s Vertical Solutions
for Emerging Markets
San Mateo, Calif., October 26, 2015 – Jivox, provider of the leading ad platform for data driven advertising and marketing, has been selected by Mindshare, the global media agency network that is part of WPP, as the personalized ad platform for Mindshare APAC’s FAST (Future Adaptive Specialist Team) Hub, an innovative set of sector-specific solutions that tap into vast stores of data to produce actionable business insights and drive real time marketing and media actions.
Launched last week in Singapore, FAST “brings together the best of WPP and industry leading companies and products, including GroupM, Kantar, WPP Data Alliance, CrayonData and Jivox,” to address growing demand in emerging markets for data and technology-led marketing initiatives, including programmatic, performance marketing, customized data alliances, digital analytics, data management platforms (DMP) and real-time marketing. FAST’s solutions are targeted at five vertical market segments: consumer packaged goods (CPG), banking, consumer healthcare, telecommunications and automotive.
“Marketers are drowning in data, struggling with how to best exploit it to connect with consumers in mutually desirable ways,” said Gowthaman Ragothaman, Chief Operating Officer, Mindshare Asia Pacific. “Jivox has a deep understanding of the technical requirements and scalability demands for data driven marketing and advertising, and as such is a critical part of FAST’s solution set. Moreover, Jivox’s unique technical architecture makes it easy to integrate with FAST’s other technologies, including DMPs, analytic engines and programmatic media. Mindshare’s FAST is supported by GroupM Connect, and the new partnership with Jivox will further enhance this cooperation.”
“FAST represents some of the most innovative thinking available in the marketplace today as it pertains to helping brands enter and compete in emerging markets,” said Diaz Nesamoney, Founder and CEO of Jivox. “Data driven marketing and advertising present far more than just technology challenges. Creativity must be completely re-imagined, as well as how to help customers think through branding and performance campaigns and measurement in light of the overwhelming shift to mobile devices and social media. By combining technology, data and domain expertise, FAST is offering customers truly customizable solutions that we believe will create impactful results where they matter most – the bottom line.”
