They also are seen as great partners and extensions of their clients’ teams.”

“Marketers today are facing not only an explosion of devices and data, but also a proliferation of marketing vendors that claim to help them solve for it. The fact that Experian Marketing Suite stands out from the crowd of services and technology in the eyes of our clients is a testament to our client-first approach that dictates how we innovate and where we invest,” said Matt Seeley, president of Experian Marketing Services.
