history

Founded in 2002 to bring accurate data, digital technologies and unique insights to the world of sports

As part of the Interpublic Group of Companies (NYSE:IPG) we embody the group's values of transparency and integrity, and have a powerful network to draw on. We have evolved and grown through working with many of the biggest names in sport, analysing thousands of events.

At the same time, as a company in our own right, we have developed a strong ethos with three core tenets:

Accuracy
Get the data right, it is at the heart of everything we do

Critical Thinking
Challenge ourselves and our clients to think in a disciplined, rational but open-minded way

Client focus
Understand client context, tailor to their needs, and communicate clearly

what we do

We cover the whole sports
media and fan landscape

We use proprietary in-house software and analytical techniques to track, assess and optimise the presence, value and impact of your brand – be you a rights holder or sponsor – from visibility to behaviour and purchase.

Who watches?
What do they see?
What is its media value?
What is the consumer impact?
What is the business impact?

We deliver accurate in-home, out-of-home and digital audience numbers for any broadcast event in over 200 countries worldwide. We are global experts in this field, and provide insight and context in addition to the raw numbers.

Our ExposureTrack service digitally measures brand exposure from every medium – visual, audio, text – and through mathematical, sports and media expertise we are able to understand what drives exposure, and how to maximise it.

By applying actual advertising rates (sourced from our global IPG network) we deliver accurate and useable valuation of exposure, and advice on how to maximise it. We have a track record of delivering double digit increases in media value for our clients.

We are experts in using quantitative and qualitative techniques to uncover how fans behave, understand what motivates them, and expose the commercial opportunities they bring.

We provide clients with evaluation of impact across a broad range of measures, from marketing objectives to hard financial outcomes. We deliver both ROI and ROO, and work with clients to optimise returns.

We handle large quantities of data, allowing us to provide unique, actionable insights to clients. But we also want our clients to be able to access all their data instantly – for this reason we deliver data through Client Interactive Web Dashboards, allowing instant access 24/7, full transparency and the ability to perform analysis in the cloud.
