iProspect Japan, part of Dentsu Aegis Network, has partnered with Clavis Insight, an ecommerce analytics company, in a move to offer new measurement and insight services to brands in the online retail space.
Clavis is based in Dublin but has offices in Shanghai, London, Paris and Boston. It will combine its ‘ecommerce intelligence solution’ with iProspect’s market measurement, attribution tracking and online optimisation services to monitor performance on platforms such as Amazon, Rakuten and Cosme.
According to a statement from Dentsu Aegis Network, key clients for iProspect and Clavis include P&G, Unilever, GSK and Mattel. However it is not known whether these brands will also become clients of the new partnership. Online retail is a major growth area in Japan that is by nature becoming increasingly competitive. The ecommerce market will be worth more than US$120 billion by next year according to some predictions.
In the statement, Koichi Kanai, CEO of iProspect Japan, said through the partnership, iProspect and Clavis would aim to “enable manufacturers to track and assess their brands’ online and offline performance in one place and capitalise on rapidly emerging ecommerce growth opportunities”.
This article has been updated to clarify that existing iProspect and Clavis clients have not confirmed engagement of services under the new partnership.
