IRI Launches Omni-Channel Measurement Tools

There’s apparently some weird competition between IRI and NielsenIQ to use the word “omni”. NielsenIQ’s opener was its Omnishopper announcement, complete with “omni measurement” of the “omni-experience” across the “omnichannel” landscape. (Bonus points for inconsistent spacing and hyphens.) IRI has countered by expanding its “omnichannel measurement capabilities to offer complete coverage of the omnichannel universe with the launch of two new solutions: IRI OmniMarket™ and IRI OmniConsumer™.” That’s four “omnis” in one sentence, NielsenIQ.
