Is a Single Customer View Important?
The need for a single customer view is growing due to companies’ growing desire to see every customer’s purchase behavior across all channels. This holistic view provides companies deeper insight such as demographics about who the customer is, when the purchase was made, the channel purchased through, and the list goes on. In an article written by CDP Institute creator David Raab, he expands on the need for a customer data platform (CDP). A CDP is specifically created for marketing purposes and communicating with customers in a more personal way through customized cross-channel campaigns. Remember, data’s just data until you use it!
