“The acquisition of Happyfication allows us to offer brands new ways to plan and execute online and offline experiences to connect with customers. In markets as dynamic as today’s, companies must constantly adapt their strategies. With this acquisition, we are taking another step to provide the best tools needed to accelerate strategic initiatives that achieve strategic objectives,“ said ISPD CEO, Andrea Monge.

Additionally, Digilant is welcoming several members of the Happyfication team to the company, including Happyfication co-founder Damon Crepin-Burr, who will assume the role of Chief Strategy Officer at Digilant.

“Marketers crave powerful data intelligence solutions that are actionable as well as enable seamless planning and reporting across all media touchpoints and sales channels. That’s why we’re incredibly excited for Happyfication to join forces with ISPD and Digilant. Our end-to-end media capabilities paired with Digilant’s cutting edge approach to omnichannel marketing is a natural match and the perfect combination to help marketers see more value from their media investments,” said Damon Crepin-Burr.

According to Gartner, despite CMOs prioritizing investments in marketing data, only 54% report that marketing decisions are being influenced by marketing analytics. Happyfication’s technology bridges this gap by leveraging 35,000 declarative data points including, behavioral data, media and content consumption data, and marketplace trends to uncover the highest-opportunity audiences and media targets.
