Businesses rely on customer data for marketing, shipping, lead generation, fraud prevention, and other purposes. However, much of that data is inaccurate, incomplete, fraudulent, or out-of-date.
- Excessive marketing costs – Businesses spend over $500 billion annually on leads, many of which are inaccurate. Incorrect customer data can compromise marketing campaigns, causing them to miss their mark.
- Offended customers – Address marketing materials and shipments to a deceased person can inadvertently offend surviving family members.
- Excessive shipping costs and delays – Wrong addresses result in excessive shipping costs and delays.
- Losses due to fraud – Credit card fraud is a multibillion dollar problem for merchants across the United States. Fictitious data is a warning flag that shouldn't be ignored.
A company's customer database is one of its most important and irreplaceable assets, often representing years of effort and expense. Businesses can reduce costs, improve marketing, minimize fraud, and more by validating customer data at every collection point, whether online, at a call center, or in a brick-and-mortar store. This is Service Objects' specialty--helping businesses reap maximum rewards from their hard-won customer contacts.Accurate, genuine customer data can:
- Fight fraud – From mismatched IP addresses to bogus contact information, real-time data validation is an important tool in the fight against fraud.
- Streamline shipping – Validated shipping addresses result in fewer returns, lower shipping costs, faster delivery times, and fewer delays.
- Improve marketing – Provide a clear picture of a businesses' customers and the type of marketing that will appeal to them.
- Boost sales – Having a complete view of the customer enables companies to improve customer relationships and identify new opportunities for selling and cross-selling. Moreover, by understanding the actual geographic area of a customer's location and the customer's proximity to services, companies can make a rapid assessment of customer value.
From detecting fraud before it happens to matching product offerings with customers based on their geographic locations and pre-qualifying customers for Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) technology, businesses from all industries can benefit from data validation.
