The amount of data that organisations have at their disposal is enormous, as is the speed with which it is received and its diversity. This trend will continue, not just in terms of data gathered from the relationship with the client, but also in terms of data made available by others, e.g. open data from the government.
This increasing amount of data comes with a growing need and necessity to be able to make the data accessible, analyse it and apply it. Not just to give the customer the most relevant message at the right time and via the right channel, but also to be able to capitalise faster on KPIs that are important for an organisation.
Successful organisations will thus stand out from the rest more and more by putting their (customer) data first in their business strategy and by archieving a higher RoD (Return on Data)
EDM wants to be the partner of choice for medium-sized and large data-driven organisations, helping them to maximise their RoD by making their data as accessible as possible, and by analysing and applying the data.
EDM increased the RoD through intelligent and pragmatic solutions in the area of data quality, customer insights and audience targeting. By using advanced technology, consumer information and analyses, data is made accessible, analysed and applied. For example by validating customer data, building dashboards for 360º customer profile and the segmented targeting of the right online and offline target group.
