Kantar Media, a multinational organization with more than 10,000 employees worldwide, is one of the world’s top providers of global news intelligence. When it acquired Singapore-based FishEye Analytics in 2013, the company looked to capture content from discussions, message boards, and forums.
FishEye tried to harvest the data from these uniquely formatted sources from scratch, but the task proved to be resource-consuming, time-consuming, and a non-cost-effective solution.
Meanwhile, at the Kantar head office, they found that the data Webz.io delivered could be further integrated with other platforms its clients were using and that no other provider could match Webz.io’s coverage and service.
“We also came to realize that no other provider could match Webz.io's unique abilities in coverage, quality, source additions, and flexibility," Mahesh Pabbu, Head of Technology R&D at FishEye.
