What’s more, output applies analysis using C+R’s proprietary SmartMarket™ Segmentation framework - built from a comprehensive cross-category view that identifies a distinct set of consumer personas grounded in attitudes about the CPG category. The segmentation allows you to focus on the segments most important to your category and brand to help you focus on targeting and messaging strategies.

Users can monitor results as they roll in via the A+U NOW® portal. The interface allows you to view data at a total market level or refine the output using dozens of available filters. And with a push of a button, your web reports can be exported to finished, fully formatted PowerPoint presentations for custom editing and sharing.
