"[Neon is] designed to increase advertisers' revenue by 20+% when planning and buying retail media to achieve their maximum revenue outcomes," the agency boasts in a statement unveiling the new unit, adding: "Neon starts with the sale in mind using automated predictive analytics to make investment decisions across retailers."

Specifically, Horizon said the platform's "computing power forecasts to the tactical level and optimizes in-market spend in real-time at the SKU level, citing these explicit capabilities:

  • Normalizes relationship between historical MMM ROI, client sales data, and retailer-reported campaign performance data (ROAS) to predict quarterly true ROI.
  • Predicts optimal media investment across retailers and 3P channels such as Amazon and Walmart, down to the tactical level to deliver a revenue goal.
  • Optimizes in market spend in real time by auto predicting thousands of micro optimizations across retailers or by tactic with a specific retailer to improve true ROI.
