Commodities Intelligence Specialists CRU Implement a Single Customer View from BlueVenn for Efficient, Enhanced Marketing

Bristol, United Kingdom, August 10, 2017 --( Global metals, mining and fertilizer industry intelligence experts CRU has chosen leading Martech provider BlueVenn to implement a Single Customer View, for an integrated database that enables effective marketing and analysis.

With more than ten offices around the world, and its business split into three parts (Events, Consulting and Analysis), CRU has a number of different and disparate datasets. These data silos were restricting the marketing team’s ability to analyze customer data effectively, meaning key information and attributes, essential for analysis and campaign selections, was being overlooked. CRU also sought better management of its customer data to ensure observance of forthcoming General Data Protection Regulation.

To obtain better control of its marketing activities, make better use of all its available datasets and be conscientious about its customers’ data privacy, CRU turned to BlueVenn to build and implement a Single Customer View (SCV) database.

Will Blake, Chief Technology Information Officer at CRU, said:

“While we have a large IT resource in-house, we felt it was logical to use industry expertise of a solutions provider like BlueVenn, and a team that has successfully delivered and executed hundreds of Single Customer Views for many years. This persistently updated and accurate database implemented by BlueVenn will not only be a boon for marketing, but also safeguard us to stay on the right side of forthcoming changes to European data protection laws.”

BlueVenn CEO Steve Klin said:

“The BlueVenn SCV provides CRU with a centralized and consistent store of customer data, allowing for the more efficient and accurate utilization of what was previously disconnected data. We’re delighted to be able to implement a solution for CRU that not only creates efficiencies and enhances accuracy on data manipulations within the marketing teams, but one that is easily scalable, independent of individual software solutions.”
