Date£º2012-5-17  Hits£º

Guangzhou, China, 16 May, 2012 ¨C Zhenai.com, the leading online matchmaking site in China, retains OMD China for media assignment and extended the partnership to cover advanced analytics services. This comes as a result of a 3-way pitch involving Mindshare, Maxus and OMD. The pitch took place in early April and OMD was announced the winner last week. The account is estimated to be worth RMB 570 M in monitored spends.

This marks the third year of partnership between Zhenai and OMD. Zhenai has extended OMD services beyond media planning and buying to cover advanced analytics, dashboard creation and maintenance and branded content.

Zhenai.com is the most established brand among online matchmaking services. With 40 million registered members as of March 2012, Zhenai.com is the world¡¯s largest provider of integrated Internet and telephone matchmaking services to the Chinese-speaking single men and women.

SiewPing Lim, CEO OMD China said, "The continuation and expansion of the partnership is testament to OMD's ability to evolve ahead in anticipation of clients' needs." Lim continued "Given Zhenai's business model, it is critical for Zhenai's business partners to have in-depth understanding of what drives their business KPIs and to manage the returns on media investments in real time. It is extremely exciting for us to work with clients to help drive business outcomes rather than just media deliverables. We have evolved capabilities to provide advanced analytics services and the development of a tailor made dashboard. This truly propels OMD to a business partner with our client rather than just a media services provider."

"OMD's Business Intelligence team will work hand- in-hand with both the planning team and our client to provide ROI modeling based on client's business needs. The dashboard will enable continual monitoring and more importantly, real time optimization to the returns on client's communications investments." said Bhasker Jaiswal, Managing Partner, Business Intelligence, OMD China.
