Digital advertising is officially bigger than traditional advertising. This fact means if digital advertising has not already started consuming a larger share of your ad spend, it soon will. This also means having technology that effectively pulls in and analyzes your customer data from digital platforms is essential to your advertising success.
Enter Data management platforms (DMPs).
DMPs like Salesforce® Audience Studio (formerly Salesforce DMP) are the backbone of data-driven marketing efforts.

A dispatcher might be unable to reach a technician on the road, or a service van might lack the proper parts to complete a task. A technician might even get lost searching for the wrong address. All of these situations can leave your customers unhappy and your workers frustrated—nobody wins.
Beyond wasting time and causing frustration to both your staff and customers, issues in your company’s quoting process can do real damage to your bottom line. In an ideal world, there would be a smooth and seamless turnaround between a customer requesting a quote from your company and receiving it.
