PivotLink Helps Marketers Optimize Omni-Channel Shopper Engagement

Customer PerformanceMETRIX Unleashes Hidden Insights Into Demographics, Purchase History and Lifestyles of Social-Mobile Consumers

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/19/12 -- PivotLink, the leading provider of retail performance management solutions delivered via Software as a Service (SaaS), today announced the availability of its latest version of PivotLink Customer PerformanceMETRIX™. This analytic application allows marketers to improve their understanding of customers and accelerate decision-making by guiding discovery into data spanning transactional, marketing automation and other customer interaction systems.

Marketers lack visibility into the evolving preferences and buying behaviors of social-mobile consumers. RSR Research analyst Brian Kilcourse describes how this is contributing to a "reset moment" for retailers striving to achieve lasting customer relationships. In the post "Retail in 2012: Castles and Ships," he adds that PivotLink "finds itself at a really interesting and exciting moment in time, as retailers seek to address the challenge of becoming more customer-centric by developing an ability to dynamically respond to consumer needs with offers and assortment, no matter where she is in her particular path-to-purchase."

Customer PerformanceMETRIX addresses these challenges by linking all phases of the marketing lifecycle -- from advanced customer segmentation and analysis to campaign management to result measurement and ROI analysis.

Highlights in Customer PerformanceMETRIX:

  • Immediately see how customers are performing relative to each other and across a company's entire customer population with self-service analytics that marketers can easily navigate for rapid insights. The latest release provides additional visual exploration of demographic and purchase behavior details that can be accessed from any of its auto-generated segmentation methods, including RFM scoring (recency-frequency-monetary value) and loyalty (first-time, second-time and repeat customers).
  • Create highly targeted, actionable segment definitions based on any customer data attribute, such as age, gender, brand preference, purchase frequency by category, channel or department, and average transaction spend. Defined segments can be shared across a marketing team, and they can be exported for use in marketing automation and other operational systems.
  • Increase the precision of customer segmentation with PivotLink's DataCLOUD™ validated 3rd-party demographic, lifestyle, spend profile, and social graph data. This turn-key service enhances a company's internal customer data with additional customer record level information to enable micro-segmentation, offer optimization and channel optimization.
  • Analyze anywhere - With Customer PerformanceMETRIX support for mobile devices.

This is where continuous testing comes in. D

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
