Capgemini has recently announced the strengthening of its Connected Marketing offer through the addition of Connected Marketing Engine – a framework and working solution which uses customer data in real time to drive greater business value and deliver more impactful emotional connections. Capgemini’s Connected Marketing offering is an end-to-end portfolio of capabilities and services that helps organizations disentangle the complexities of marketing in the digital landscape. Through this augmented set of services, Capgemini aims to empower marketing teams to reduce complexity and raise business impact.
According to the recent Capgemini Research Institute report, A new playbook for chief marketing officers: Why CMOs should enable real-time marketing to drive sustained growth, rapid growth in ecommerce has heightened the need for real-time insights to accommodate fast-changing customer behavior. Real-time marketing can process, analyze, and leverage data to swiftly enhance digital commerce campaigns, increase brand awareness, customer satisfaction, conversion rates and customer retention.
“One big challenge for marketing teams today is how to deliver relevant content at the right moment – in order to establish a meaningful dialogue with the customer,” says Thomas Dmoch, Connected Marketing Offer Leader, at Capgemini. “With Connected Marketing, we’re empowering organizations to deliver long-term growth through their marketing strategies. Using real-time data, supported by creative content, fast work processes and the right marketing technologies, we enable brands to be just as fast as the customers who are engaging with them.”
“Our students live in a connected world and are the next generation of digital leaders, creators and shapers who will fundamentally change the world we know today. Connected Marketing is critical to the success of engaging with our students – be it for new students only starting their higher education journey or our industry and alumni connections where lifelong learning is paramount for success. Capgemini’s Connected Marketing services and the engagement they provide is critical to the success of our University and for our student outcomes,” says Chaminda Ranasinghe, Chief Experience Officer (CXO) at RMIT University.
The new Connected Marketing Engine provides the platform and intelligence that turns the ever growing set of signals, touchpoints and data that marketers need to operate in today’s connected-customer world into something more focussed on a consumer’s needs, for real-time or scheduled engagement and interaction.
