Customer intelligence.

Mastering the art of data integration.
 
 
The challenge
 

Fragmented data is leaving your customers with flawed experiences. 

A complete view of your customers gives your company a competitive advantage. The problem is knowing where to start. You need to make informed decisions by integrating the right data from all customer touchpoints so business users and analytics teams alike aren’t bogged down in fragmented data. You probably recognize the following issues:
 
“I’m under pressure to make the most of our marketing budget.”  
When marketing budgets get cut or re-appropriated, it’s critical to make data-driven investment decisions to reach your goals more effectively.
 
 “I need a better way to identify qualified customers and prospects.”
Many companies today use a variety of tools and technologies to manage customer interactions. When data sets don’t talk to one another, your best customers get lost. 
 
“My customers demand consistent experiences.”
Your organization has many groups driving customer interaction and engagement,  but to the single customer receiving all these messages, you are one brand. Disparate data sets leave you with a disjointed customer view and inconsistent messaging. 

Signs of data disintegration:

Your analytics team is flooded with inefficient, ad-hoc requests from internal stakeholders.

The solution

Take analytics to the next level.

 
A Toxic Data Habitat vs. A Thriving Data Habitat.
A toxic data habitat  occurs when departments manage data in silos without working toward a single, cohesive view of the customer. This weakens your company’s ability to communicate consistently with your customers across all channels. 
 
 
vs.
 
A thriving data habitat  is cultivated when departments work together to share data from as many sources as possible. IT, offline and online marketing, product development, merchandising, and customer service teams, all collaborate to bring a complete customer view into focus.
