Inmar’s solution features their unique CDP, ShopperSyncTM, at its core and a robust, but modular media portfolio that provides retailers a level of customization while still delivering an integrated solution. With this approach, marketing, targeting and attribution are unified across all channels to address the entire consumer journey and drive greater loyalty, revenue and profitability.
