Market Track and InfoScout Rebrand to Numerator, Launch Omnichannel Panel of Record Solution

October 4, 2018

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 4, 2018--Market Track, the leading provider of global omnichannel market intelligence for brands and retailers, and InfoScout, which helps brands and retailers grow via insights derived from America’s largest omnichannel consumer purchase panel, today announced that both companies will unite under the new brand Numerator. The comprehensive rebrand reflects the joint company’s commitment to delivering an integrated marketplace view that enables clients to better connect with consumers and elevate their top line.

Numerator is now uniquely able to link what people buy to the reasons and influences behind their purchases, combining the power of the InfoScout OmniPanel, which to-date has captured over 500 million brick-and-mortar and ecommerce purchase receipts, and the advertising (formerly Competitrack), promotion (formerly FeatureVision), ecommerce pricing (formerly 360pi) and digital shelf messaging that influence the path to purchase.

“We’re proud of what we have delivered to clients as Market Track and InfoScout,” said Dennis Moore, CEO of Numerator. “And, we are incredibly excited about what we are bringing to market for our clients going forward as one unified company. The marketplace we measure and the clients we serve are undergoing rapid and dynamic change including advances in digital marketing, the rise of online commerce, and the re-shaping of retailing in an omnichannel world. We continually challenge ourselves and our clients and partners to monitor and lead the changes in the industry, and re-branding ourselves as Numerator is one of many steps we are taking to stay ahead of the changing landscape.”

On behalf of its over 2,200 clients, Numerator captures fifteen times more shopping trips annually than legacy panels, along with over $90 billion in measured annual ad spending, trade promotions from 445 retailers and pricing for over 80 million online product listings daily. Building on over three decades of helping companies adapt in a changing marketplace, Numerator has organized its offer around the areas that drive growth for clients: strategy and innovation; branding and advertising, distribution and merchandising; and pricing and promotion.

Said Joan Lewis, a member of Numerator’s board and former Global Officer and SVP of Consumer and Market Knowledge at P&G, “Whether you’re a market leader or a challenger brand, success requires being able to see not only what’s in front of you but also what might be in your periphery. Numerator has broken down its own data silos to better provide clients with a true omnichannel perspective, creating a long-awaited link between the shopping journey and the actual purchase outcome.”

Numerator also announced the launch of Enterprise Insights, a replacement for legacy panel data. Numerator Enterprise Insights provides shopper, consumer and innovation teams with a single view of their shopper’s path to purchase, streamlining decision-making and unlocking growth in an omnichannel market. Powered by the InfoScout OmniPanel, the new solution gives manufacturers a real-time measure of their brand health across online and offline channels.

“Today’s market demands that companies challenge the status quo and find new ways to connect with consumers,” says Moore. “Numerator Enterprise Insights gives manufacturers line of sight into what’s happening in the ‘blind spot’ channels that legacy panel data cannot capture. We’re thrilled to bring this solution to market to provide the insights that were, until today, thought to be impossible to get.”
