Experian Maketing Services Global Cross Channel Marketing Platform Furthers Competitive Advantage with Expanded Localization Features

Experian Marketing Services’ global cross-channel marketing platform furthers competitive advantage with expanded localization features
Enhancements offer marquee global marketing teams greater precision and seamless multi-national campaign execution and business intelligence reporting

New York, N.Y., Nov. 4, 2013 Experian Marketing Services, a global provider of integrated consumer insights, targeting, data quality and cross-channel marketing, has made key enhancements to the company’s global cross-channel marketing platform, including new enhanced localization features that help marketing teams located in regions around the world efficiently build and execute localized campaigns.

“As brands expand internationally and marketing operations become more geographically dispersed, robust localization features for marketing platforms are becoming an absolute necessity,” said Matt Seeley, president of Experian Marketing Services. “We’re continuing to develop features like these that help marketers focus less on logistics and more on delivering the most optimal customer experience.”

Experian Marketing Services’ cross-channel marketing platform is designed to help mid-size and enterprise brands simplify complex marketing interactions with customers removing the need for multiple, disparate platforms and individual channel vendors. Unlike other marketing platforms where individual platforms may have been pieced together to appear as one, Experian’s cross-channel marketing platform’s single system architecture enables all of the new localization features to be applied seamlessly in all parts of the platform, including campaign reporting and calculated fields. 

Key localization features include:
• Multi-language interface support:  Creates a fully localized user experience, regardless of the user’s global location, providing a single platform that can be easily adopted by any globally distributed marketing team or organization. 
• Localized support by profile: Enables users to build campaigns in their preferred language and time zone, including localized number formatting and date formatting. This enhancement creates a more transparent user experience and allows multiple people on different time zones to work on the same account.
• Synchronized time zone support: Displays all days and times in a user’s own time zone and enables scheduled processes to be run off the user’s time zone by default. Users are also now able to specify when a campaign reaches a customer based on the time zone of that customer. This allows users to deploy a campaign internationally without needing to spend time calculating the send times.
• Localized data import support:  Allows companies to use multiple international date formats as needed by each of their specific regions. This minimizes efforts on the client and improves consistency across the globe.

Business intelligence (BI) and reporting has also been enhanced throughout the cross-channel marketing platform, also available through a single interface.  In addition to offering standardized reports, the platform enables individual users to create unique custom reports and dashboards. These interactive widgets give marketers quick and easy access to multi-dimensional, near real-time data that’s most important to their individual business goals and helps guide more intelligent and faster decision making.
As the world’s largest email service provider, Experian Marketing Services has been a trusted, industry choice helping marketers achieve their campaign goals for more than 30 years.  Many of the world’s most progressive marketers use its vast data assets and linkage solutions to create, test and target audiences.  In the US alone, its database reaches 98 percent of the US market, covering more than 299 million US consumers and 110 million US households, with more than 3,500 known attributes.
