Columbus, Ohio —8/1/2016 — Prosper Insights & Analytics™, a leading provider of business intelligence solutions, and Prevedere, a leader in business performance forecasting, announced today that they have formed an alliance to provide ‘a la carte’ access to Prosper’s unique and forward-looking U.S. and China consumer data as a premium offering within Prevedere’s solution. A decade of Prosper’s emotional and mindset data plus future purchase intentions will complement Prevedere’s robust dataset that includes external factors such as global economic, environmental, and consumer behavior leading indicators. This partnership will allow clients to easily integrate these influences into their existing predictive models for more accurate forecasts. 

Prosper has unique capabilities and expertise in developing and maintaining market and competitive intelligence for both the United States and China markets. Prosper’s data focuses on consumers’ plans and their regular behaviors for purchasing via all retail channels as well as the media that influences their purchase decisions. Its collection of emotional data on happiness, impulsivity and futures plans adds the ‘human element’ to a marketing world that is increasingly robotic and cold.

“With the right data and technology, predicting consumer behavior is becoming easier and more accurate than ever before,” said Rich Wagner, CEO of Prevedere. “Prosper’s unique collection of emotional data, such as happiness and impulsivity readings, adds the aspect of customer intention to our dataset.” 

Prevedere is a leader in Business Performance Forecasting software, using predictive analytics and real-time global data. Its correlation engine accurately determines which factors are true leading indicators for company revenues, profits, even individual products, nationally or locally.
