Ipsos Marketing Wins German Market Research Award for Third Time

New brand research tool receives the “2009 Innovation Award”

Thursday, May 28, 2009

Hamburg, Germany - Ipsos Marketing’s PERCEPTORPlus brand research tool received the prestigious Innovation Award from the German Association of Researchers (BVM), beating 16 competitors in the process.

PERCEPTORPlus helps Marketers meet the key challenges they face when trying to leverage brand research to optimize their strategy and predict share growth. What makes PERCEPTORPlus unique is its ability to integrate virtually all relevant drivers of brand choice – in essence, the Body and Soul of a brand – into a comprehensive framework that can be used by Marketers to determine Brand Equity, Brand Value (Share of Choice) and Affiliation (Loyalty). Marketers can also leverage PERCEPTORPlus’ simulator to predict the impact of different strategies on market share. Because the simulator covers the Body and Soul of a brand and is based on validated, individual-level modeling, the results reflect what the real changes in the market will be.

According to Janet van Rossem and Matthias Tien, Directors at Ipsos Marketing in Germany, “This award recognizes the innovativeness of our approach to brand research and proves that we at Ipsos Marketing are truly the Innovation and Brand Research Specialists.”

PERCEPTORPlus was developed by Ipsos Marketing’s Global Product Center, an international team dedicated to the advancement of global market research tools for the Consumer Goods sector. According to Sunando Das, Vice President, Global Product Center, “With PERCEPTORPlus, we offer our clients a fresh approach to brand research that provides a new framework for determining which brand components drive consumer choice as well as a more accurate method for conducting market simulations for optimizing brand share. PERCEPTORPlus provides a holistic view of the brand as well as solid recommendations for driving brand growth into the future.”

This is the third time Ipsos Marketing has been awarded by the BVM: Ipsos Marketing won the award in 2005 for its Concept Contest qualitative tool and again in 2007 for its LINEEvolution line optimization approach. No other company has ever achieved this.
