VivaKi Inks Deal with The Echo System & Voxsup for Exclusive Access to Social Data & Buying Platform

Partnership gives Publicis Groupe clients access to the industry's most robust social database

CHICAGO, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Seeking to deliver superior social marketing strategies and media decisions to marketers, VivaKi today announced a partnership with The Echo System and Voxsup. The combination of The Echo System and Voxsup gives Publicis Groupe clients access to unparalleled brand insights and solutions through a social intelligence platform that mines over four years of social data from every major social network.  These unique social insights are served up via proprietary algorithms that deliver an unmatched level of brand, platform and competitive intelligence.

"Out of the gate this partnership delivers value to our entire agency ecosystem.  It gives teams and their clients valuable insights to inform marketing and media buys, and it answers every agency's need for robust brand intelligence, competitive analysis, content engagement data and influencer identification in real-time.  The stories and experiences created by our agency partners will benefit from the deeper, more immediate visibility into the behaviors of a vast and growing global audience," said Frank Voris, VivaKi's CEO.  "The insights and analytics will improve our agencies' ability to ideate, predict, buy and measure clients' campaigns and experiences."

"The Voxsup platform's proprietary algorithms give us a true competitive advantage in the marketplace, as they inform our social intelligence in a way that has never been done before in such depth and breadth," said Michael Wiley, chief social media officer of VivaKi. "This partnership will bring value to our social capabilities across all marketing channels. The Voxsup platform will inform our agencies' paid, owned and earned strategies and give them the tools and resources they need to better understand their clients' audience and how they engage with brands and content."

The Echo System and Voxsup solution is based on unique, positive user engagement as opposed to passive audience information.  The data and insights reflect user activity on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Google+, LinkedIn, blogs and more.  Built by a group of PhDs from Northwestern University led by big data pioneer and Voxsup CEO, Dr. Alok Choudhary, the platform has been informed by the analysis of more than 450 million active profiles and publically available data on more than 22,000 brands.  As a result, it encompasses more than 100 billion nodes of data.

"We're excited to bring our solution to a group as client-centric as Publicis Groupe," said Lance Neuhauser, CEO of The Echo System. "They consistently look at solutions that go beyond pricing and maximizing their own efficiencies, in order to put clients first. The combination of that mentality with The Echo System and Voxsup partnership is going to be a complete game-changer for Publicis Groupe clients."

The partnership provides an exclusive solution to Publicis Groupe and its clients for two years.  The platform will also be integrated into the VivaKi Nerve Center product suite, powering robust social intelligence for greater performance.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
