Register now: workshop “Making the Most of Customer Data Platforms”

Today’s marketers have more data available than ever but struggle to pull it together in a usable, centralized Customer 360 format. Customer Data Platform (CDP) technology offers the promise to solve this problem by offering easy-to-deploy systems resulting in data unification and sharing. But marketers, technologists and executives rightly wonder: can CDP really deliver on this promise?

On January 23, the Customer Data Platform Institute (CDPI) and Netherlands’ Squadra Group will host a marketing workshop intensive, “Making the Most of Customer Data Platforms,” to answer that question and provide a deep dive into this rapidly evolving martech sector, which is projected to exceed €200 million revenue in Europe by the start of the new year.

The PIM expert group of Shopping Tomorrow visited Delihome

The PIM expert group of Shopping Tomorrow was at Delihome (a.o. brands like Jéwé, Bruynzeel, Lundia, Skantrae, CanDo) for a very interesting meeting, facilitated by knowledge partner Squadra. First the beautiful showroom and the product location were visited, followed by presentations of Bol.com, Dorel (Maxicosi, among others) and Intergamma on User Generated Product Content (UGC). Subsequently, the 20 different experts from very different companies discussed these topics extensively. Some conclusions: 1. UGC is given a very different form within the B2C than in the B2B. 2. If UGC is reused in multiple channels and if it can be traced back to 1 product, UGC should end up in a PIM. 3. Good reviews of products lead to substantially more sales and indirectly to a large pond of improvements to the products (services) themselves.
