DMSI announces WiseGuys Interface with Google Analytics

DMSI announced today that our flagship application has taken giant steps toward solving the riddle of multi-channel attribution. WiseGuys, an award-winning marketing analytics application, can now incorporate Google Analytics data feeds into its Matchback reporting, and deliver more precise ROI metrics. Until now, WiseGuys has been limited to matching customer orders against either catalog or pay-per-click promotional campaigns. By adding Google Analytics, WiseGuys can now provide a 3rd component in the pursuit of knowing "what works" in data-driven marketing. As any seasoned marketer knows, the challenge in today's fast paced environment is an extreme version of what was posed by John Wanamaker in the last century: "Half of all advertising is wasted - I just don't know which half"

Since 2003, WiseGuys continues to drive response and deliver ROI by answering "what works" in your marketing initiatives.

For more information on this exciting new approach, contact DMSI offices at (703)941-8109.

DMSI releases MOM Interceptor utility program

DMSI announced today the release of a deduping utility add-on program for MultiChannel Order Manager. The program - MOM Interceptor - is a new, powerful, standalone utility within our proprietary WiseGuys Marketing program. Interceptor compares and displays duplicate customer records in your MOM import files (before they are imported into MOM). The superior value of Interceptor is threefold:

  1. Data hygiene: Avoid customer record duplication in your MOM database.
  2. Intercept: Update customer addresses already on file in MOM.
  3. Customer visibility: Review the data quality of new customer records before import.

How does Interceptor work?
Interceptor grabs the output file from your shopping cart (CV3 or SiteLink). It then uses de-duping algorithms to compare customer name/addresses in your file with MOM.

Seeing is believing. Algorithms are great but your own eyes are better at detecting dupes. So what Interceptor does is display suspected dupes side-by-side with customers already on file. Then you confirm - dupe or no dupe and, if confirmed, Interceptor assigns the MOM custnum to each matched record. You can then import the resulting table into MOM with confidence - and save yourself a lot of headaches later.

Pricing:
FoxPro users: $495 perpetual license (incl. 1 year maintenance)
SQL users: $695 perpetual license (incl. 1 year maintenance)

Early Adopter offer:
The first 5 buyers of MOM Interceptor - prior to Sept 1, 2013 - will receive the following:

  1. A 90 day free trial of WiseGuys – our award-winning marketing software. See how the data mining features of WiseGuys can "find gold" in your MOM customer data.
  2. 4 hours of Database Marketing Consulting services from Bruce Gregoire, DMSI. Mr. Gregoire is a veteran in Data-Driven Marketing, and teaches CRM in the graduate marketing program at Johns Hopkins Univ.
  3. 1 copy of "Strategic Database Marketing", by Arthur Hughes. This text will help you become a genius at elevating your marketing game.

Stop creating havoc with your MOM database – order Interceptor today!

Larry Chase's Web Digest for Marketers - June 2006

WiseGuys Marketing Analysis Software - WiseGuys enables you to do RFM (Recency, Frequency, Monetary) analysis right from your desktop - and thus identify those customers most likely to respond to whatever off you are cooking up right now. It links to your order entry system. Written in Microsoft Access, it automatically households files, segments customers into quintiles and assigns RFM scores to customer records. You can also apply lifetime value analysis to identify profitable customer segments. It was created by a database marketing company president and instructor at Johns Hopkins University when he and his students realized that RFM analysis was much easier in theory than in practice and that no off-the-shelf program existed to provide RFM capability. You can request a demo at the site.

Eight Lessons You Can Learn From a Matchback
Special Report: Matchbacks (Catalog Success: 3/1/06) By Terrell Sellix

Matchback tools also can be added to your existing order management software. These programs offer immediate matchback capabilities by integrating mailing data and order information into a single database. When orders are received, they're automatically matched to a mailed record. Two examples of these software solutions are the Media Matchback Module, which runs in Response Direct Commerce Software by CoLinear Systems, and the Matchback Response Analysis feature of WiseGuys by Desktop Marketing Solutions. The latter links to several standard order management software programs. Costs for these types of tools can range from $1,000 to $3,500 depending on what commerce software you use.

"Closer Look: WiseGuys Marketing Software", Catalog Age, April 2004 issue. Catalog Age Logo

Here is an excerpt from the article, written by Ernie Schell, an industry veteran:
A bold statement, but nonetheless true: WiseGuys is the only stand-alone target marketing software available that uses RFM analysis.

Ernie Schell, Catalog Age
"When it comes to database marketing, the typical catalog company, regardless of size, talks the talk but fails to walk the walk. Bruce Gregoire of Falls Church, VA-based Desktop Marketing Solutions aims to change that. WiseGuys Marketing Software is built on Microsoft Access (or on MySQL) and performs both RFMP and LTV calculations in a robust and coherent fashion, with a price tag for the "enterprise" version of $2,500 With this kind of bang for the buck, and for so few bucks, at that, WiseGuys is a no-brainer for companies still stuck in "Excel hell."
