“Caring about Data Quality with Global-Z” Webinar Recap

We're excited to share a recap of our recent webinar “Caring about Data Quality with Global-Z”, where Dimitri Garder sat down to discuss Global-Z’s offerings and services, including case studies that demonstrate the value of their solutions.

Overview of Global-Z’s Services

Global-Z is a leader in data quality with over 35 years of expertise and was acquired by Melissa a year ago. Located in the Northeast US and supported by global data centers, Global-Z offers a range of solutions designed to ensure your contact data is accurate, complete, and actionable, with a focus on global data.

Key Services Highlighted

Global-Z offers two different services: Bureau Services and Accu360™.

Bureau Services is a high-touch concierge service that offers a hands-on approach to data quality, providing personalized service and support to cleanse, validate and enhance your database efficiently. A data quality assessment is done to evaluate the quality of your data, identifying areas that need improvement, and then Global-Z bulk cleanses the data based on your organization’s needs. This is ideal for organizations with large volumes of data and can be done as a one-off cleansing or to help support ongoing marketing efforts.

Accu360™ is a real-time cleanse, match and merge service that allows for continuous data quality maintenance, ensuring your database is always up-to-date and accurate. You will gain a comprehensive view of each customer. Plus, it is a native Salesforce integration, so it will integrate seamlessly to enhance your CRM capabilities.

Case Study Highlights

We shared several case studies demonstrating the impact of Global-Z’s services:

Luxury Retail Brand – Bureau Services

A large luxury retail brand needed to understand the true number of unique customers and identify their most valuable ones.

Global-Z approached this in two phases: 1) cleanse and match the data and 2) analyze and develop rules to improve data further using their expert team.

This process identified 6 million duplicates, recovered 1.5 million addresses, and resulted in 9 million unique contactable customers. This also highlighted significant cross-brand interactions, something the luxury brand did not know.

Accu360 Implementation

The typical use case for organizations using Accu360 is creating a unified view of a customer—often, there is a fragmented view because of customer interactions across various systems that an organization is unaware of, which negatively impacts the customer experience.

Accu360 does real-time cleansing, matching and merging, which creates a golden record for each customer to ensure that one unified, 360° view of each customer. This leads to enhanced customer insights, improved customer experiences, and streamlined operations.
