    Governance is the glue that holds various content, knowledge and data management initiatives together.  It is increasingly necessary as a component of customer experience and marketing automation and integration initiatives.  

    The challenge is that governance is not an exciting topic and it is difficult to get participation and buy in at the correct levels of the organization.  How do you retain interest in these kinds of necessary programs?  The answer is to tie governance to measurement of program and project progress, success and operations.  Once governance is aligned with objectives and clearly defined measurement, the organization will focus the correct level of attention and governance will be successful. 

    This webinar will cover the challenges associated with data governance and the business impact of poor data quality on digital marketing programs and knowledge management systems. Expert panel members will discuss real-world examples of data governance best practices, how to avoid the common pitfalls and how to put a framework for a successful metrics-driven governance process in place.

    [RECORDED] Product Data Mastery - Reducing Returns to Increase Margin Through Better Product Data

    Improving product data quality will inevitably increase your sales. However, there are other benefits (beyond improved revenue) from investing in product data to sustain your margins while lowering costs. One poorly understood benefit of having complete, accurate, consistent product data is the reduction in costs of product returns. Managing logistics and resources needed to process returns, as well as the reduction in margins based on the costs of re-packaging or disposing of returned products, are getting more attention and analysis than in previous years. This is a B2C and a B2B issue, and keeping more of your already-sold product in your customer’s hands will lower costs and increase margins at a fraction of the cost of building new market share. This webinar will discuss how EIS can assist in all aspects of product data including increasing revenue and reducing the costs of returns. We will discuss how to frame the data problems and solutions tied to product returns, and ways to implement scalable and durable changes to improve margins and increase revenue.
