Kantar Shopcom puts vital metrics and intelligence behind your media and messages.
We bring greater precision to your entire communications portfolio, ensuring that you reach the right audiences in the right ways - to drive the right results.
How We Do It
Kantar Shopcom creates unparalleled consumer-level marketing and media insight by combining its purchase behavior analytics expertise applied to the data in the Shopcom Data Platform with the complementary data sets and rich analytic expertise of its extensive network of commercial partners.
We use quantitative precision to paint a holistic picture of your customers' mindsets and behaviors. We answer the critical questions at the heart of any communications program: What did consumers see, hear and what did they do as a result? How can the answers drive improvement across your portfolio?
SHOPCOM DATA PLATFORM™
Communications power begins with knowledge. And knowledge depends on being able to see - and connect - all that counts.
The foundation of this knowledge is the Shopcom Data Platform – a multi-channel anonymized, single-source, customer-level purchase database of over 231 million U.S. consumers shopping over 300 CPG, consumer electronics, apparel, sporting goods, and auto after market sector categories.
Via its privacy-compliant, name and address-based data connection platform, Shopcom connects its purchase data to media consumption data and brand attitudes data to create a more holistic view of consumer audiences, activation of more impactful brand communication and more profitable brand-consumer relationships. In short, Kantar Shopcom connects what people SEE, FEEL and DO to help retailers and marketers grow their brands.
