Experian launches intuitive cross-channel marketing platform

New platform provides world’s leading brands the ability to develop full-service marketing campaigns in all channels from a single system.

London, 30 April 2013 – Experian, the global information services company, today announced the launch of its new global cross-channel marketing platform, giving marketers the ability to develop and optimise real-time, full service marketing campaigns across any channel to deliv er seamless, timely and coordinated communications.

The emergence of today’s new hyper connected and “always-on” consumer means brands must deliver coordinated and consistent customer experiences across all marketing channels. The Experian Cross-Channel Marketing Platform enables marketers to integrate real time data and customer insight, optimise this insight to create meaningful customer conversations and then interact with customers regardless of channel across email, mobile, social, web, display and print.

Key features of the platform include:

  • Real-time and actionable data – This feature enables marketers to obtain a true, panoramic customer view, integrating data from virtually any source (including first-party and third-party data) and channel into a central repository for more effective targeting, triggering and personalisation of marketing campaigns across all channels. Brands can also layer customer data with deep consumer insights to gain a true, panoramic view of their customers.
  • Cross-channel campaign management – The new platform provides a central location for marketers to plan, manage, execute and optimise all campaigns across channels, enabling them to focus less on logistics and more on delivering consistent and coordinated marketing messages to their customers as they naturally move seamlessly in and out of channels.
  • Intelligent customer interaction management – Marketers are now able to trigger highly optimised, personalised and coordinated messages across channels based on customers’ real-time actions and responses to campaigns. All messages are created and delivered directly from the same platform, ensuring that customer response behaviour is immediately captured and accessible to drive even greater relevancy in subsequent interactions.

Nigel Wilson, Managing Director, Experian Marketing Services commented:
“In this always connected consumer environment, it’s critical for marketers to create a seamless brand experience across all channels, online and offline. This new Cross-Channel Marketing Platform draws on Experian’s expertise in building scalable and reliable marketing technology to transform how brands interact and connect with their customers. Our clients will be able to handle the growing complexities and speed required to effectively engage with their customers, understanding who their best customers are, finding more of them and building lasting customer relationships.”
