E.ON selects EuroDirect as its Consumer Data Supplier

After a pitch, E.ON has chosen its incumbent supplier EuroDirect to resume the provision of consumer data to support its future customer and prospecting campaigns.

EuroDirect will continue to supply the Data Exchange consumer universe and its vast array of consumer variables to aid E.ON's prospecting and customer data enhancement initiatives. In addition the full suite of postcode and household level CAMEO Classification products will also be available for customer segmentation, profiling and prospect targeting. E.ON will also be licensing EuroDirect's Individual Modelled Age Band which enables them to understand the age group of every consumer in the UK down to 5 year bands.

E.ON will be using this extensive range of consumer intelligence supplied to further develop its consumer understanding and help better target marketing activities which are aimed at reducing customer churn and encouraging customers to upgrade to additional or alternative added-value services. They will also be using advanced customer analysis to develop a series of prospect models for new customer recruitment.

E.ON will continue to use EuroDirect's renowned data matching techniques to match enrichment data to their existing customer database.
