IRI Joins Forces with Return Path to Offer FMCG Companies E-commerce Receipt and Transaction Data

Information Resources, Inc. and Return Path announced an alliance through which IRI will integrate data from Return Path's Consumer Insight business and other e-commerce transactional datasets that will create the most comprehensive view of the rapidly growing online activity in the consumer packaged goods industry. With this new, integrated dataset, CPG marketers will gain a significantly enhanced understanding of e-commerce activity and the interaction of online purchasing with traditional brick-and-mortar transactions, plus a deeper awareness of the path to purchase. This complete view will provide more effective shopper insights, marketing activation, and a holistic approach to measurement. Return Path’s Consumer Insight business provides in-depth visibility of consumer behavior in real time. It captures shoppers’ inbox data, which provides a unique, real-time view of behavior, from brand affinity to detailed purchase records. Consumer Insight provides the right data to guide smarter decisions and better business results. This is Return Path’s first comprehensive data alliance, and the company selected IRI based on its client relationships and superior e-commerce offerings. Through the alliance, IRI will gain access to e-commerce receipt data as well as purchase data and will collaborate with Return Path on future products and services, such as scorecards, analytic services and market share reports. In addition, the alliance will give IRI clients new access to e-commerce purchase data, including product-level, basket and unique transaction information, such as pickup versus delivery.
