The Relevancy Group recognizes Experian as a leader in email marketing for the fourth consecutive year

Focus on technology and client needs enables Experian to help brand marketers create innovative and complex marketing campaigns

New York, N.Y., March 09, 2017 — While many consumers receive information through a variety of channels, marketers still consider email the foundation of marketing communications and multichannel campaigns. With this in mind, Experian® helps brands leverage data to empower insight-driven marketing to enhance their customer communications across all channels, with a strong heritage in email. As such, for the fourth consecutive year, Experian was recognized as one of the top email service providers (ESPs) in The Relevancy Group’s recently released report, The Relevancy Ring — The ESP Buyer’s Guide 2017. The report evaluates ESPs based on product capabilities, services, customer satisfaction and innovation.

Experian was cited for its ability to help brand marketers leverage data and analytics to develop messages and programs that reach their customers on an individual level. The report states: “Experian Marketing Services are well prepared to deliver Everychannel, data-driven marketing and analytical solutions. … Marketers that seek a strategic partner to provide a blend of software and services to deliver complex campaigns should consider Experian.”

“As the report shows, 90 percent of marketers stated that it is either extremely important or important to work with a vendor that has its own internal services team instead of relying on services partners. They want a vendor that knows the product and their business — and can offer not only the software they need to elevate their marketing campaigns, but exceptional client service to help them make the most of their investment and strategize for the future,” said Jeffrey Wilks, Experian’s executive vice president and general manager of Cross-Channel Marketing. “Our client-driven approach, as well as our in-house talent, enable Experian to help brands achieve their marketing goals. Given our years of experience in email marketing, as well as our focus on clients and the needs of their business, we are in a unique position to help marketers use their data to drive messages that speak to their customers.”

Experian received high marks for its client services and support in the report: “Experian clients reported a heavy reliance on Experian tools and services to run their businesses and raved about their experiences with both. ... Customers trust Experian as ‘an excellent business partner, with impeccable customer service.’”

Additionally, the report includes The Relevancy Ring Client Satisfaction Awards, which are based on client feedback across a number of categories. Experian received multiple awards in the educational resources, usability, technical services and omnichannel marketing categories.

The Experian Marketing Suite is a cloud-based customer data management and cross-channel marketing platform that enables marketers to build a unified customer view and create personalized marketing interactions that further the relationship between a brand and its customers.
