Merkle, a leading technology-enabled, data-driven performance marketing agency, announced the launch of Archie, a scalable solution for marketers to gain cross-channel media and marketing insights, using best-in-class platforms and tools.
Archie features rapid campaign reporting in a collaborative analytics environment, allowing advanced and unified performance measurement across media and CRM channels. Marketers who work with Archie can begin with basic or advanced campaign reporting and are provided options to adjust and expand reports based on the organisation’s unique needs.
“With Archie, Merkle now centralises marketing performance measurement, applying data standards and a templatized approach with the industry’s best-in-class technologies, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Tableau,” said Alex Yoder, executive vice president, analytics at Merkle. “As a trusted partner to our clients, we leverage Archie to understand basic insights, set benchmarks, help align internal stakeholders, and deliver quick wins. Within the solution, we can dramatically advance the discovery of complex analytical modelling on the same data set. We use Archie to help clients swiftly stand up marketing campaign reporting and deliver advanced measurement like attribution, media mix modelling, connected attribution, and customer journey analytics.”
Merkle clients have experienced meaningful results with Archie, including seven times faster speed in reporting and insights and 60 per cent fewer resources needed to maintain reporting. Before Merkle, a global luxury fashion brand was working with a fragmented media reporting solution and needed a holistic view of its media program. The Merkle team leveraged Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to integrate media data from Google Marketing Platform (GMP) into Archie for better reporting, data visualisation, and analysis of key performance indicators (KPIs) across 200 client users. Since implementing the solution, the client has increased reporting efficiency by 220 per cent. For more information on this story, read the full case study here.
