Advanced audience analysis for streamlined media sales

Researchers of all types have more data than ever before, and they spend an exorbitant amount of time aggregating that data and curating it into a compelling story. In parallel, research department headcounts are declining, making it difficult to keep up with the demands of C-suite executives and sales organizations. Given these challenges, researchers are constantly on the lookout for reliable tools that can quickly quantify the value of their offerings.

Sales Catalyst is an automated partnership exploration and audience analysis tool. Built on the Insights platform with Smart Search technology, Sales Catalyst helps advertising sales, partnership and sponsorship teams understand commonalities between their audience and that of a potential partner. Sales Catalyst features advanced data visualizations that quickly illustrate the value of an audience, helping researchers streamline media sales and build more meaningful partnerships.
