VMS began product development after years of research and close consultation with industry executives to better understand marketplace needs. After extensive testing and analysis, the VMS team was able to determine the best integrated media intelligence solutions, culminating in Vantage.
“To realize our long term strategic vision of introducing a suite of Integrated Media Intelligence solutions to the marketplace, we needed to establish a strong foundation of innovative, market-leading offerings first,” noted Wengryn. “With InSight™ and AdSight™ our news and advertising monitoring solutions as building blocks, we were in a unique position to capitalize on our superior market know-how to develop an enviable, and comprehensive C-Suite business solution in Vantage.”
Gary Getto, VP of Integrated Media Intelligence for VMS has been at the forefront of the Vantage development. Getto has over ten years of experience correlating news coverage to business outcomes, and creating proprietary algorithms that show the relationship and impact of news and advertising on each other, thereby enabling improved decision making. “VMS in partnership with our beta clients have already confirmed that Vantage enables savvy Global 500 companies to reevaluate and adjust expenditures and activities to deliver stronger ROI to their Board of Directors”, said Getto.
A compelling aspect of the Vantage solution is its ability to assist marketers to stay ahead of their competition. Through a user-friendly dashboard, Vantage provides the user actionable big-picture metrics, with the feature to drill down to more granular views. “With Vantage, users can quickly detect and counter competitive threats, respond more efficiently to media crisis situations, and adjust messaging as necessary,” noted Getto.
