Originally launched in October of last year, Affino has been working with IMRG to refine and improve the appeal and function of its Automated Ecommerce Benchmarking System. A key part of the improvement was to aid adoption of said service with an appropriately snappy and highly targeted re-branding.
Affino worked with IMRG on the naming and brand origination. Following a multi-step process, it was finally concluded that ’Peermap’ was the strongest candidate - in terms of relevant meaning, values conveyed, overall utility and domain availability.
The Peermap brand represents an automated benchmarking system for online retailers. It allows you to track key online sales metrics and MAP your performance against your sector PEERS, including:
’Peermap’ can be used as a proper noun, as well as a verb and adjective. You can Peermap your site and have it be Peermapped as it were.

We also completed a promotional flyer for Peermap, as follows:
The flyer puts across the key purpose and benefits of Peermap in the simplest terms. The call to action is Free Registration with an added incentive of free lifetime access to benchmarking for the first 100 retailers who register.
