Identify and manage customers with a consumer intelligence platform

Many companies struggle with managing consumer data in an effective way. In fact, they may need to integrate a consumer intelligence platform with their business systems, to find and validate consumer data in real time.

In this blog post, I interview Josefine Malmquist, Group Product Manager for Consumer Intelligence solutions at Bisnode. Read this blog post to learn more about consumer intelligence platforms!

What Does Bisnode Consumer Intelligence do, and why is it Important to Your Customers?

Bisnode Consumer Intelligence is a set of modern Rest API:s:

Onboarding – Integrated into Companies business systems enables customers to find and validate consumer data in real time. 

Use our feature Search, Verify and Download to validate the data submitted by a new customer (i.e. an online store) and retrieve a unique ID for the customer. With simple searches and auto-completes we simplify the registration process for the customer, which leads to an improved customer experience in, for example, online purchasing.

Unique ID – A key concept in Bisnode Consumer Intelligence is the Generic Entity Data Identifier (GEDI). It is designed to be a unique, persistent identifier of entities within Bisnode. A quite common scenario we see today among B2C Companies, having data about customers spread out in different systems (e.g. Store, CRM system, Delivery, etc) making it almost impossible to have a complete customer view. This is where Bisnode Consumer Intelligence´s unique ID really can help companies without having to invest into expensive MDM solutions.

Can You Give a Few Examples of How Bisnode Consumer Intelligence is of Benefit?

  • One of the largest consumer databases in Europe, with more than 170M+ individuals.
  • Unique personal ID:s create a single customer view across all systems and platforms.
  • Available in 10 countries – with more to come.
  • BCI is GDPR compliant – it will help you to be as well.

In Your Mind, What is the Future of Digital Marketing and Marketing Technology?

Digital automation and AI are here to stay and will be an important part of the society’s future development – probably faster than we think ourselves.

– Sure, AI is still in its infancy in many areas, but I think we will see a rapid development in just a few years’ time. If you look specifically at marketing, it will benefit both companies and consumers. AI and automation will free up time for us to perhaps work more creatively while consumers will not be troubled by irrelevant marketing.

In this interview, Josefine Malmquist explained how Bisnode’s Consumer Intelligence Platform can be used to improve marketing campaigns. I think that we can conclude that data is the new currency! Are you interested in marketing automation or AI in your business? Contact me!
