Hill Holliday Selects Visual IQ as Exclusive Marketing Attribution Management Solution Provider

IQ Intelligence Suite to Help Agency Measure and Optimize Clients’ Cross Channel Marketing Performance

Needham, MA – October 24, 2011 - Leading advertising agency Hill Holliday today announced that it has selected cross channel marketing attribution software provider Visual IQ as its attribution management solution provider of choice. All of Hill Holliday’s clients that use attribution management to manage and improve their cross channel marketing efforts will now do so using Visual IQ’s IQ Intelligence Suite of products.

The IQ Intelligence Suite helps marketers measure the consolidated influence of online and offline campaigns on their overall success. Using marketing performance data, it provides marketers with attribution management insights that allow them to quickly and easily understand cross channel impact as well as the reach, cost and true revenue of each marketing tactic. Unlike inaccurate and antiquated “last click” measurement techniques that assess the relative impact of efforts in isolation, the attribution management insights, and actionable recommendations delivered through the IQ Intelligence Suite provide a clear picture of performance and opportunities for improvement across the entire marketing ecosystem.

“Assessing campaign performance can be incredibly difficult due to the use of multiple marketing channels and tactics, but it has become extremely important as brands want to maximize every penny of their budgets,” said Manu Mathew, Visual IQ co-founder & CEO. “For agencies that are managing cross channel marketing efforts across a multitude of clients, tools like the IQ Intelligence Suite make it easy to overcome the data overload and deliver much more accurate recommendations and improved marketing performance. We are very pleased that Hill Holliday recognizes the value of our products.”

Agencies have found attribution management particularly beneficial. It enables account teams to analyze and interpret marketing performance in more profound ways than ever before, as well as make highly-informed recommendations on behalf of their clients.

“Our clients trust us to make the right recommendations about their ad programs and spend,” said Phil Geyskens, senior vice president of analytics, Hill Holliday. “Fortunately, powerful technology like the IQ Intelligence Suite exists so we can do this in a data-driven way that is defensible and accurate. It makes our jobs easier and our clients programs more successful. We are pleased to make Visual IQ the exclusive attribution management provider of Hill Holliday and look forward to a successful relationship.”

Hill Holliday’s clients include some of the world’s most respected and recognized brands, including Liberty Mutual, Dunkin’ Donuts, John Hancock and Major League Baseball. In addition to Hill Holliday, two of Advertising Age’s top three U.S. advertisers and two of the top three agency holding groups worldwide now utilize Visual IQ’s products to conduct attribution management. Visual IQ currently manages over $5 billion in media spend on behalf of its clients.
