MFour and RealityMine Partner to Launch Connected Consumer Data™

Posted by MFour on Jun 18, 2019 9:20:44 AM

RealityMine, the leader in unique insights into the mobile and digital lives of consumers, and MFour Mobile Research, the leader in Behavior Driven Research™, today announced their partnership to launch Connected Consumer Data™.

The solution leverages MFour’s always on all-mobile consumer panel and RealityMine’s RealityMeter to provide clients with a single-source continuous data set that marries observed digital and location behavior with validated surveys. As a result, researchers will be able to draw insights about actual consumer actions, preferences and drivers.

“By adding best in class behavioral data collection technology to MFour’s always on all-mobile consumer panel, they are able to unlock key insights on the mobile, connected consumer,” said Chris Havemann, CEO of RealityMine. “Researchers and advertisers can now combine individual consumers’ digital and ecommerce activity along with their real-world store visits and in the moment survey responses to truly understand the omnichannel shopper.”

“Behavior driven research is where the market is going. RealityMine and MFour’s partnership is integral to making that a reality,” said Chris St. Hilaire, co-founder and CEO of MFour Mobile Research.

The Connected Consumer Data solution delivers a powerful single-source resource covering:

  1. Online Data to shed light on what actions consumers take on their smartphones.
  2. Offline Data to provide the physical, real-world location of where consumers are taking these actions.
  3. Event Triggered Surveys to identify and survey key panelists to find out the ‘why’ behind their observed actions.

The Connected Consumer Data solution delivers a robust feed of always-on behavior that marries key mobile activity—such as web browsing, app usage, shopping and streaming activity—to real-world location data to paint a vivid picture of consumers’ unencumbered actions, preferences and intent.

MFour Wins Gold for Innovation of the Year

Posted by MFour on May 17, 2019 4:52:55 PM

MFour Mobile Research, the recognized leader in GPS survey technology, mobile market research and consumer data, was awarded the American Business Awards highest honor, their Gold Stevie Award, for Innovation Of The Year for their Path-2-Purchase® Platform.MFour’s groundbreaking technology tracks the physical journey of consumers, with their consent, so brands and retailers can better understand their consumers’ journey.  And since the Path-2-Purchase® Platform is built on top of MFour’s Surveys On The Go® mobile app, these same consumers can be contacted automatically based on their behavior like entering or exiting a retail location.  This combination of observed behavioral data and survey data has been widely touted as the future of market research.

“It’s extremely satisfying to see all the effort and innovation that went into the development of our Path-2-Purchase® Platform be recognized,” said Chris St. Hilaire, MFour’s co-founder and CEO. St. Hilaire noted that their Path-2-Purchase® Platform enables clients to harvest first party opt-in location and survey data from more than 2 million pre-profiled mobile consumers whose buying journeys are tracked across 12.5 million U.S. locations, including all of the top 1,000 retailers.

MFour placed ahead of Comcast Business’s ActiveCore SDN platform and Pacific Life’s Claims Concierge and Beneficiary Services platform in their category.  Both Comcast Business and Pacific Life were awarded Bronze Stevie Awards in the same category.

The judges for the Stevie Awards had universal praise for MFour’s Path-2-Purchase® Platform.  “The more data companies know about their target consumer the better. Tracking more buyer behavior on smartphones is a great innovation,” said one of the awarding judges.  The universal praise by the American Business Awards’ judges has been equaled by the commercial adoption of MFour’s technology by corporations eager to understand their customer’s buying decision cycle.
