Leading independent research firm cites the Experian Marketing Suite as a “promising platform”

New York, N.Y., July 29, 2015 —Experian Marketing Services, a recognized leader in cloud-based marketing technology, data and service, today announced it was named a Strong Performer in the Forrester Research, Inc. July 2015 report The Forrester Wave™: Real Time Interaction Management, Q3 2015. The report evaluated 11 vendors based on 35 criteria points.

Forrester Research stated in the report that Experian Marketing Services “enters the market with a promising platform. Nearly half of its customers are retailers that execute dynamic email, but the majority also deploy web personalization and eCommerce recommendations. They further leverage Experian’s 12 billion rows of consumer data for identity resolution and record matching.” Launched in 2014, the Experian Marketing Suite tied for the highest score in user experience in this report, and Experian® also scored higher than any other vendor for its sales and service strategy, achieving the highest score possible.

“We believe our position in this report further validates the power of the Experian Marketing Suite, which leverages Experian’s unique history in customer identity and recognition, actionable insights and personalized interactions,” said Matt Seeley, President, Experian Marketing Services. “There has been a massive effort to unify our data, technology and services in a flexible and impactful way for our clients around the world. This report is, in our opinion, fantastic validation and supports our vision of intelligently bringing brands and consumers together.” Seeley continued, “The need to engage consumers in real time with relevant, meaningful contextual offers and content has never been more important. Brands must prove they know who their customers are, regardless of channel, and deliver exceptional customer experiences each and every time.”
