Customer Profile: Procter & Gamble

With major brands such as Tide®, Crest®, and Head & Shoulders®, Procter & Gamble is continuously reaching out to its consumers with special offers. Sage Analytic's Offer Processing Center serves as the perfect platform to host the online data capture associated with these offers. The platform provides a set of data capture pages that integrate with the brand's website to create a seamless visual experience. Behind the scenes, the system has the intelligence to manage the entire data collection process. The Offer Processing Center platform enforces business rules, storage requirements, and strict consumer privacy guidelines. Having such a robust feature set allows Sage Analytic to launch complex online offers for the entire P&G product line even under short deadlines. The combination of SSL-based encryption and a zero data retention policy helps Procter & Gamble exceed their stringent privacy policies. Plus, the administration console allows P&G's marketing managers to monitor the activity on their offers in real-time.

Customer Profile: Schering-Plough Corporation

Schering-Plough's primary objective for this project was to increase membership, activity, and participation on the web site. An additional objective was to create a real-time link between the fulfillment center's inventory system and the website's online catalog and order system. Personalization of a website visitor's entire experience was accomplished by utilizing a rich member profile database to customize content delivery, based on preferences and previous activity. In order to maintain website traffic, several new services that catered specifically to the interests of pharmacy professionals were developed including a news & article delivery mechanism, a continuing education tracking module, and a colleague contact system. The online product catalog and ordering modules were designed to achieve complete integration with the fulfillment center's inventory management modules.
