TCELab Introduces Next-Generation CEM Platform Integrating Big-Data Tool Automation And Customer Loyalty Science
| 'Big Data Are A Macabre Clown,' Says Stephen King -- TCELab Launches CEM Customer Loyalty Platform
TCELab officially unveiled its next generation Customer Experience Management (CEM) Platform, integrating a suite of big data tools with leading edge customer loyalty science from Bob Hayes, Ph.D.
“Big Data are a macabre clown,” states CEO Stephen King. “Most enterprises have LOTS of it, and it can be a great deal of fun! But, big data can also be grim, narcissistic, and a huge waste of time if not approached correctly. Enterprise adoption of better CEM programs has become critical because if you don’t get the data right, you’ll fail. It’s the classic case of garbage in / garbage out.”
“Our solution to business’s Big Data problem revolves around customer loyalty, a leading indicator of business growth. Our approach is to correlate customer satisfaction and loyalty with the mounds of big data available internally and externally, either in the cloud or in enterprise systems,“ continues Dr. Hayes, TCELab Chief Customer Officer. “Then, through linkage analysis, we provide C-Suites with vital business intelligence reporting on an annual, quarterly or monthly basis that provides laser-focus on operational KPI’s that impact and accelerate revenue growth.”

In a complex retail landscape, it's more critical than ever to understand how these behaviors and attitudes influence the purchase decision.
Fanplayr Becomes Part of Email Marketing Infrastructure
| Serious new initiatives require serious commitment - by
integrating them into your core marketing infrastructure
Loyalty and incentive programs are driven by consistency and pervasiveness throughout an organization — especially when the key foundation is engagement of prospects and consumers. Achieving that level of integration requires both a clear strategy and strong infrastructure.
So what do we mean by ‘infrastructure’? Well Fanplayr provides a great example of that with their new integration with Constant Contact. Systems and tools are one thing but when there is a higher standard to call something ‘infrastructure’. That standard is defined by a new process — which should be quite difficult — instead becoming a natural part of your existing processes.
By simplying the inclusion of gamification (for engagement of pre and post sale customers) into all email communications, Fanplayr demonstrates its understanding of how momentum is built in customer focused programs — by allowing your team members t o relatively easily access new capabilities without an unnaturally high degree of additional effort.
