IM & Statshub join forces to develop a new benchmark tool for BNP

IM & prof Gino Verleye have been commissioned by BNP Paribas Fortis Brussels to develop a brand new and revolutionary benchmark measurement tool .
IM and Statshub start a  new joint research development project at the end of 2023 for BNP-Paribas Fortis Brussels. The project is a combination of sophisticated qualitative and quantitative research, resulting in a new and revolutionary communication effectiveness measurement tool.

Our tool will measure the effect of ads and other communication  compared to the relevant benchmarks of the finance category. This way, BNP will instantly know whether and why future communication is above of below the relevant benchmarks for the banking category.  The project will start end 2023 and we will deliver the actual (automated) tool Q1 2024.

Tool and method find their origins in academic work of Gino Verleye, published for the first time in 'Frontiers in Communication' in August 2023.
