New York, N.Y., Feb. 1, 2011 — Experian Marketing Services, a leading provider of data, analytics and marketing technologies to help organizations target and engage their customers across both digital and traditional media, today announced the launch of Simmons OneViewSM. This highly anticipated Web-based delivery system combines the trusted syndicated and custom research from Experian Simmons with high-performance analytic tools and reports providing marketers with around-the-clock access to vivid consumer insights.

“Marketers today demand faster access to actionable consumer insights and business applications to make critical marketing decisions,” said Ken Wollenberg, general manager of Experian Simmons. “Simmons OneView is a cutting-edge system that provides 24-7 access to the freshest Simmons data, in addition to high-performance analysis tools expressly developed as a result of our commitment to listening to and working closely with our clients.” 

Leveraging Simmons OneView, advertisers, agencies and media owners will be able to:

• Profile: Instant profile reports, comprehensive data-mining and cross-tabs provide marketers with in-depth understanding of consumer targets, enabling them to make data-driven marketing decisions quickly and confidently.

 Plan: Formulate cross-media and messaging strategies with built-in analytic tools, including reach and frequency reports, correspondence mapping and geographic analysis.

• Measure: Close the loop on marketing activities by measuring campaign and ad effectiveness with weekly updates on nearly 60,000 consumer data elements via Simmons DataStreamSM.

• Know: Dashboards and automated alerts keep marketers up to date on the latest consumer trends, letting them know when market conditions change so that they never miss an opportunity to act.

• Take charge: Intuitive features and role-based access serve the insight needs of everyone in the organization, from the savviest analyst to the on-the-go sales executive, bringing into focus the information necessary to accomplish the task at hand.

Simmons OneView will become the primary channel through which clients can access Simmons research. Experian Simmons clients will continue to be able to access Simmons-licensed data through our traditional third-party platform partners.
