TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Jan 9, 2014) - Equifax Canada, a leading provider of consumer and commercial information solutions, today announced a partnership with Environics Analytics, the premier marketing services and data analytics company in Canada, to deliver more robust solutions for direct marketing and customer acquisition. Through this partnership, Equifax and Environics Analytics will be able to better equip data-driven marketers to sell the right products and services to targeted segments based on consumer behaviour.

"We're excited about enhancing our marketing analytics offering via our partnership with Environics Analytics," commented Tara Zecevic, Equifax's vice-president of technology and analytical services. "Environics Analytics' critical mass of proprietary data coupled with Equifax's aggregated consumer credit data will provide our clients with a multidimensional view of customers required by marketers in a format that is compliant with Canadian privacy laws. Our joint offering will also provide a best-in-class software-as-a-service platform that enables easy access and use of data and analytics with outputs that drive decision insights."

Equifax's privacy-compliant, aggregated credit data on Canadians, currently offered as Neighbourhood View™, will be used to enhance several of Environics Analytics' marketing solutions and will also be delivered as a module through ENVISION, Environics Analytics' research-driven, online micromarketing tool. This platform facilitates a broad range of marketing applications, making Equifax data available for segmentation, market analysis, customer insights and media planning.

In addition, Environics Analytics will also embed Equifax data into two of its products: PRIZMC2, Canada's leading consumer segmentation system, and WealthScapes, the most comprehensive dataset on the assets, liabilities and wealth of Canadians.

"We appreciate the opportunity to work closely with one of the world's great information companies," said Jan Kestle, president and founder of Environics Analytics. "This partnership with Equifax will help marketers better understand their customers and communicate with them in ways that reflect their target audience's preferences and lifestyles. And we look forward to working together to develop additional products that will help marketers better connect with their customers."
