GDPR D-day has created a lot of buzz... and fuss
GDPR came into force on May 25, 2018. It was highlighted by intensified press coverage. It made consumers acutely aware of their new rights: e.g. the right to object, the right to rectification, the right to data portability, the right to be forgotten... All companies are bound to witness a surge in the number of consumers contacting them to know more about the use of their personal data. Especially for mass market brands, the challenge will be huge. But even SMEs should be prepared.
Data silos complicate GDPR compliance
Even the so-called simplest GDPR right – the right of access – may prove to be a headache. You need to provide data subjects an exhaustive view on all the data related to them. But most companies work in silos. They have separate storage facilities for:
All these data don’t communicate. They are kept in separate places, databases and departments. That’s why putting together all the data of the very same person can be time and money consuming for a company.
The solution: Single Customer View
The Single Customer View makes it much easier to respect the new consumer rights. Bisnode can play a major role as a partner to help customers realize this single customer view dashboard. It will help companies to become legally compliant. It will give them more flexibility to delete data at their customers’ requests.
Bisnode helps clients create an overview per customer. It allows them to identify duplicates at individual and household level and to add a unique identification key to each customer. It also enables them to link information from various online and offline sources to the right customers.
Is Single Customer View just a software matter?
For cost-efficiency reasons large companies usually want to solve the single customer view challenge with a software. But this is often a mistake. Computer logic has its limits. Here’s an example:
How could a software know that email@example.com, who registered for the newsletter is the same as Annabel Verbrugghe, whose name was misspelled by the cashier when she purchased the product in the store? And how does your system make the connection with the same Annabel Verbrugge, who called your customer service yesterday?
