Acxiom Corp. recently announced a partnership with 4INFO aimed at generating location-specific target audience segments. This data-as-a-service solution is a combination of 4INFO’s Predictive Visitors related audience segmentation and Axciom data, which is anticipated to streamline location-informed  segment targeting for digital advertising.

Notably, this new partnership is in sync with Axciom’s Partner Enablement Program that intends to provide marketers with consumer related processed information.
