    Why don’t we hear more stories about companies that are delivering a truly unified customer experience across channels? We don’t hear about it because very few organizations are doing it.  Meanwhile, customer expectations are growing. They assume you “know them” well enough to predict what they want, when and where they want it. When you don’t deliver, their disappointment impacts brand and performance.

    The reality is, while the data is there (in data warehouses or more recently data lakes), the /insights/ and connections to customer facing applications are not.

    The Customer Data Platform (CDP) Institute states the challenge succinctly: "A unified customer experience is impossible without unified customer data.” The solution may come from a new approach – The Customer Data Platform (CDP) – that focuses on, and integrates data for specific marketing uses.

    Join us for this special-edition Earley Executive Roundtable, as we hear from experts and early adopters about the benefits and opportunities that a CDP approach can offer. In this session our panelists will share:

    • Stories about pioneering companies who have put marketing in control of the data unification project using a CDP.
    • The methods for applying specialized technologies and pre-built processes that are tailored to meet marketing data needs.
    • How CDPs enable a faster, more efficient means of integrating customer data than general-purpose technologies.
    • Re-thinking unified customer data challenges – no longer as a data base project, but instead, as a data and system integration solution.

    [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.
