When Customer Loyalty is Paramount - Effective Client Interactions Matter – So Does CDI

In the current business environment where customer loyalty is paramount, companies need to take a serious look at the ways they interact with their clients – and search for solutions that will make their client interactions more effective.

East Brunswick (PRWEB) May 18, 2005 -- In the current business environment where customer loyalty is paramount, companies need to take a serious look at the ways they interact with their clients – and search for solutions that will make their client interactions more effective. At a May 17 roundtable event “Customer Data Integration, An Emerging Market Your Organization Needs to Know More About,” participants discussed how Client Data Integration (CDI) could help companies achieve a single view of their clients.

The panel discussion, sponsored by DWL, a leading technology provider in the customer data integration space, and BusinessEdge Solutions Inc., an innovative business and technology integrated consulting firm, presented CDI best practices and featured panelists Dave Schuette, BusinessEdge chief solution strategist; Justin LaFayette, DWL chairman and cofounder; and John Radcliffe, vice president, research – CRM at Gartner, a leading provider of technology research for companies in the information technology industry, and author of Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for CDI, a company guidebook to evaluating CDI vendors.

CDI solutions collapse accounts into a client centric model, enhancing operational efficiency and facilitating effective client communications and interactions. Reliant on a technology set called Customer Data Integration, CDI uses foundation solution architecture, more simply called a client centricity capability, and select vendor software, to standardize, cleanse, link, match and synchronize, master reference data to establish a global identifier for each client. This means that no matter what the internal system, the name and address of the client will always appear exactly the same – and in so doing prevent inefficiencies, inaccuracies and redundancies that diminish the client experience.

Said Mr. Schuette from BusinessEdge: “Improving your operational efficiencies by finding better ways to integrate client data in your back- and mid-office functions increases understanding of your clients’ needs and enhances the overall effectiveness of your client relationships.”
