Martech Radar: Top CDP Tools

MarTech-Radar--

Customers’ and consumers’ data are consolidated and integrated into a single data source using customer data platforms (CDPs). Which one is the most suitable for your organisation?

Mohammad is unhappy with the services offered by his current bank and is considering replacing it for a better experience. He then searches the Internet for banks scoring well on consumer experience. However, he leaves his search midway to attend to some urgent matter.

Moments later, to his surprise, his social media profile is flooded with an array of advertisements from several digital banks offering him services like transferring balances from the existing account. He clicks on one of them to arrive at the e-landing page. While filling out an account opening form, he is interrupted one more time. The next day, while Mohammad is on his way to work, he receives a mobile notification reminding him about his incomplete form. This notification also offers him a better-balanced transfer.

Impressed by this lucrative offer, he clicks on the link and finishes the form in no time. Account opening and transferring his balance are done without any hassle. Mohammad could enjoy an end-to-end seamless, positive experience with his new bank. This is made possible due to the customer data platform (CDP).

In this week’s Martech Radar, we have compiled the list of top-rated customer data platforms aiding enterprises in understanding their target consumers better.
