Single Customer View

Build a deep understanding of your best customers so you can delight and grow

Combine best-in-class reference data and intuitive technology to build a complete picture of your customers

When customer data is kept in multiple systems, duplicates and discrepancies are unavoidable. Coupled with an ever-increasing number and variety of digital platforms, having a complete and accurate customer view is becoming increasingly challenging.

Experian’s Single Customer View solutions incorporate best in class data preparation, data matching, golden record creation, monitoring and consultancy capabilities.

Experian has designed and built Single Customer View solutions for a wide range of industries and for a wide range of use cases, including marketing automation, customer service, analytics and fraud detection.

How we build a Single Customer View

Our approach focuses on the data and provides a methodology that will consolidate, clean, fix, link, harmonise, and enrich with additional customer insights across all data assets within a business.

The 4 stages are:

  1. Investigate – Extract data from systems across your organisation, consolidate it, and assess its accuracy and completeness as the first step to cleansing and validating.
  2. Assess – Consolidate and profile the data so you can assess potential strengths and weaknesses within it, in the context of business priorities.
  3. Improve – Bring consistency to the way your data is formatted, ensure your customer data is accurate, and fill the gaps using our unique range of reference data including location and socio-demographic data sets.
  4. Control – Compare records, identify and harmonise duplicates, create a golden record and give each individual a unique identification number and ensure you can maintain an up-to-date and accurate view over time.
