Customers who recently participated in the company’s Early Access Program are praising Data Shops for meeting a critical need in the marketplace and applauding the revenue opportunities that it opens up for users:

“Narrative Data Shops has made it easy for us to spin up an e-commerce store that showcases AdImpact’s advertising intelligence data. The team has been outstanding in providing us with logistical support — from warehousing data to delivering it to our media, agency, political, and platform buyers. Data Shops is a turnkey, end-to-end data monetization experience that opens up an entirely new channel for us to deliver real-time linear, CTV, and digital ad spend data to customers.” – Dwight Green, Chief Business Officer, AdImpact

“AnalyticsIQ is excited to be a founding customer of Narrative Data Shops. Data users are only as good as the data they are aware of and can access. With Data Shops, we can more easily connect users with a variety of quality data they may not have otherwise found, giving them the ability to identify the right data for their analytic mission and to us, that is both exciting and important.” – Dave Kelly, CEO, AnalyticsIQ

“PurpleLab is driving innovation in the healthcare data industry by re-architecting how real-world data is understood and accessed. We aim to deliver on a standard of access in minutes, and insight instantly. While our database structures and flexibility are foundational to enabling life science organizations to better understand markets and analyze outcomes at speed, digital marketplaces have struggled to meet this velocity, hidebound as they are by older data structures and business rules that restrict how buyers and sellers can collaborate. Narrative Data Shops is the first solution we’ve found with the same commitment to frictionless marketplaces that provides data on the client’s terms, and easy iteration of new product types to identify unmet demand.” – Mark Brosso, CEO, PurpleLab
