Customer DATA MANAGEMENT
Using high-quality and relevant data to help companies make better marketing and operational decisions is a vital part of business today. But in this information age, the amount of data is growing exponentially. Managing and analyzing increasingly large and complex volumes of operational and customer data is a key challenge for many organizations. As a result, the volume of unstructured data can be a burden rather than an asset.
Key challenges are to capture, store, retrieve, and analysis of data.
At Sunstream, we understand the data management and analysis challenges companies facing today, and provide a range of tailored solutions to transform data into sources of insight and value — at every stage of the customer communication lifecycle.
Many companies and industries are moving from product-focused to customer-focused marketing and sales efforts. Customer data is one of the most, if not the most, vital types of data in any organization. The reality is that most firms suffer quality issues in their prospect and customer data – inconsistencies, duplicates, multiple systems and “sources of truth” – that ultimately hamper the sales and marketing teams and their goals.
Whether you are managing a formal master data management and customer data integration project, or cleansing and de-duplicating data for a marketing campaign, Sunstream enables companies to focus on the core strategy (driving business), by taking on key projects and ongoing maintenance to improve our clients’ customer data quality. With years of experience in master data management and across industries, Sunstream utilizes industry best practices and deploys a “Customer Data Quality Management” framework to improve data quality and manage business processes more effectively.
