As Consumers Grow More Connected, New Study Reveals Fundamental Shift in Marketing Challenges and Advanced Technology Solutions

AgilOne to Host Live Webinar to Address Key Challenges and Cutting-Edge Trends to Improve Customer Engagement Marketing

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- January 22, 2013 -- AgilOne, the cloud-based predictive marketing intelligence company, today announced the results of a new commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of AgilOne. The research shows a rapid shift in the marketing industry. What is fueling this shift? Customers' digital behavior is rapidly outpacing the marketers' ability to respond and guide the buying process.

This new dynamic arises from the continued explosion of multi-channel data and the fact that marketers are having a harder time than ever fully understanding the customer's digital path to purchase. At the same time new analytic technologies are enabling marketers to draw more meaningful and actionable conclusions.

The study, "The New Paradigm of Predictive Analytics," surveyed North American marketing professionals in retail, media, and consumer service companies to gauge their outlook on the future of the digital marketing industry. The study highlights the top challenges marketers are facing, including:

  • Optimizing the lifetime value of a customer. Seventy-five percent of respondents indicated that maximizing the lifetime relationship of a customer is the driver of their implementation of new analytics technologies.
  • Getting a single view of the customer. Big data has become the norm for many marketers, but they're drowning in it. More than a third of survey respondents struggle to create a consistent view of the customer from channel-level data, often stored in separate applications.
  • Empowered buyers demand a new level of customer obsession. With 82 percent of customers researching a product before purchasing, it's essential that marketers find a way to attribute and measure the scope of their actions.

"The age-old problems for marketers of revenue attribution and increasing life time value never go away. What is changing is the explosion of multi-channel data and an intense focus on customer relationships," said Omer Artun, CEO of AgilOne. "Finally, technology has caught up with the business issues. A new paradigm of using predictive analytics to increase customer intimacy is now possible. Our customers tell us that predictive analytics is now key to helping them create lasting and sustainable customer relationships."

Forrester found that 45 percent of marketing professionals plan to expand or implement analytics software in the next year. This will help them reach customers in a more direct and personal way, allow them to cleanse and manage their multi-channel customer data, and extract predictive future activity. AgilOne offers marketers help in two ways: "data science" tools and technologies to make multi-channel data clean and smart, and advanced analytics to separate the "signal from the noise" in customer data.

Study to be Unveiled in Live Webinar January 29th
AgilOne is offering a free webinar, "The Future of Customer Relationships: A New Paradigm of Predictive Analytics," featuring Robert Brosnan, Forrester Research, Inc., on Tuesday, Jan. 29 at 10:00am PST / 1:00pm EST. Register here.
