[Infographic] Customer Data Platform ROI—Forrester Consulting Evaluated It, Here Are the Results
What is CDP ROI for organizations like yours? If you’ve been disappointed before by martech hype, you probably have a lot of questions about the return on investment (ROI) of customer data platforms (CDPs). How is CDP ROI calculated for uses like yours? And the bottom line: Should you invest in a CDP to help you with marketing and sales efforts to unify online and offline data, create and piece together unified customer data profiles, and easily handle targeting, segmentation, and personalized customer journeys?
That’s understandable; it’s not easy calculating expected gains and measuring costs. But a new study from Forrester Consulting, “The Total Economic ImpactTM (TEI ) of Treasure Data,” hammers through the hype and shows all work, taking great care to ensure no detail is left uncovered or unexplained. The study offers transparent analysis of the Treasure Data enterprise Customer Data Platform that demonstrates CDP ROI of 802 percent.
Forrester Consulting’s respected analysts interviewed CDP users—spanning different industries like food and beverage, mobile applications, automobiles, and travel, most with millions of customer records—culminating in a representative “typical” composite organization used to model ROI.
With the help of Treasure Data CDP, the interviewees mentioned more closed sales with improved conversion and close rates, increased transactions with more real-time segmentation and messaging, improved customer retention, and campaign operating costs savings. In the end, the numbers span over three years, risk-adjusted.
Using these typical costs and benefits, Forrester calculated total CDP return on investment (ROI), CDP present value (PV), and CDP net present value (NPV). The results, detailed in this infographic, are eye-opening.
