Why does a business need a CDP?

Today there is a growing interest in Customer Data Platform (CDP) solutions. They are being implemented not only by large corporations but also by medium and small businesses. In this article, we will briefly review the key points of CDP implementation for any company with a customer base of 5 000 profiles or more.

What is CDP?
Customer Data Platform (CDP) is a centralized system that aggregates customer data from various sources, be it external data sources such as free Wi-Fi networks, GEO data, Bluetooth beacons, etc., or internal data sources such as data from CRM system, loyalty programs, cash register system data or activity on the company’s website or mobile app. CDP is a powerful tool for continuous monitoring of customer assets and provides businesses with the most objective view of the results of interactions with customers. The reliability and breadth of analytical data that a business receives from CDP allows the business to improve marketing strategy, increase the effectiveness of communications, and optimize marketing costs without losing efficiency.

1) Integration of data from many sources

Key business benefits of CDP

CDP integrates data from a large number of customer touch points, providing a holistic understanding of customer behavior and preferences. This enables businesses to better manage the customer lifecycle and improve customer satisfaction.

Technology integration with data sources includes:
🟢 Guest WiFi: Collecting data on customers using the guest network to analyze their behavior and preferences.
🟢 MAC Radar: Tracking devices via MAC addresses to understand client movements.
🟢 Bluetooth Beacons: Utilize Bluetooth beacons to capture data about customer movements and interactions at physical locations.

🟢 Loyalty Program: Integration with loyalty programs to capture information about loyal customers’ purchases and preferences.
🟢 Mobile App: Integration with the Business mobile app to create a profile of Customer behavior based on GEO data and interaction history.
🟢 CRM: The Business’s existing CRM system can be a good source of data for the CDP at the start of implementation and in the process.

2) Customer Base Monitoring and Revenue Forecasting

Key business benefits of CDP

CDP provides continuous tracking of the status of the customer base, which allows you to quickly identify problems, areas of sustainable business performance, areas of potential growth, and forecast future revenues. All of this is extremely important for strategic planning and management of company resources.

CDP includes basic analytical reports such as:
🟠 New Customers: Reports on the number and characteristics of new customers for a specific period.
🟠 Active Customers: The report shows the structure, active for the period, of the customer base from the most engaged and loyal customers to customers with minimal activity.
🟠 Customers at risk (churn): Reports to help identify customer segments that may stop interacting with the company.
🟠 Frequency Reports: Statistics on how often customers purchase or interact with the business.
🟠 And a number of other standard reports

3) Monitoring and analyzing marketing investments (ROMI)

  • CDP allows you to effectively segment your customer base to create personalized marketing campaigns. This helps to optimize advertising spend and increase return on marketing investment (ROMI).
