RMN 2.0 brings together the strengths of Asia’s next-generation media group with Taiwan's leading listed D2C SaaS provider, to give advertisers a powerful new tool to reach audiences where they shop.

TAIPEI, Taiwan, and TOKYO, Japan (April 30th, 2024) -- TNL Mediagene, Asia’s next-generation digital media company, announced it would collaborate with 91APP, Taiwan's leading listed D2C SaaS provider for commerce, to develop a new Retail Media Network, RMN 2.0.

Powered by 91APP’s "jooii®" AI application and integrated with data and insights from TNL Mediagene's 22 media brands in Japan and Taiwan, RMN 2.0 is aimed at enhancing advertisers access to customers where they shop. As traditional digital advertisers look for better ways to reach audiences after “cookies” are eliminated on many platforms, the value of data, in particular in retail settings where audience already are likely to transact, is enormous, according to Joey Chung, the CEO and co-founder of TNL Mediagene. 

TNL Mediagene not only possesses strong media influence, broad audience reach, digital technology capabilities, and data processing capabilities, but also continuously develops ways to effectively utilize data and offer precise marketing while protecting user privacy. The group's Ad2 unit is the leading digital-advertising network in Taiwan. Its collaboration with 91APP will make it the preferred platform for retail media as well, Joey said.

In response to the evolving D2C (Direct-to-Consumer) and brick-and-mortar e-Commerce trends, 91APP, the first SaaS software service company and OMO (Offline-Merge-Online) retail software cloud services provider to have the prestigious honor of being listed on the TPEx in Taiwan, offers a comprehensive Commerce Solution and Marketing Solution integrated with its proprietary retail AI model, "jooii®". This integration leverages "jooii®" to enhance retail strategies by delivering actionable insights and tailored recommendations to retail brands. The RMN 2.0 collaboration with TNL Mediagene further expands the reach of "jooii®" in the retail sector. 91APP General Manager Yang, Ming-Fang stated: "With the phase-out of third-party cookies, RMN 2.0 is expected to promote the development of advertising media and the enhancement of future personalized marketing."

"This partnership with 91APP marks a cross-border milestone for media and retail e-commerce. With the assistance of AI, advertising placements and precision marketing will become more efficient, offering users more relevant product recommendations and a sense of integration, satisfying the needs of both users and advertisers and achieving a win-win situation," TNL Mediagene’s Joey Chung said. "The group's continuous investment in technological research and development is part of our integrated strategy of using data insights, AI and technology, and strong advertiser relations to build and sustain a strong media platform for the next generation.”
