To highlight XCM in the most formal way, we are data, technology & marketing specialists…that’s the Sunday name out of the way! To give you a broader understanding of what we do we exist to transform complex data into actionable opportunities with one overpowering goal in mind and that is to help our clients to integrate, supercharge and humanise their data to generate optimal intelligence for their people, ensuring they maximise performance from their fans and customers. In a nutshell, that’s the remit from top to bottom throughout our business.
We firmly believe that if you are looking to build a meaningful and game-changing solution which drives significant incremental business value, that a bespoke and flexible approach is the answer. When we started the journey to create our own Customer Data Platform, one thing sat firmly at the top of our agenda – that being that we must create a highly ‘customisable’ solution, where the approach, design, deliverables and strategy are all geared towards a specific client. The end result was Horizon, which offers a bespoke solution for data integration, identity matching, analysis, insight, data science models, decision intelligence, CRM, personalisation and reporting dashboards
So what are our credentials in Sport? This is a sector in which XCM see great potential for growth and as part of that progression we have been successfully working with both Aston Villa FC and Silverstone for a number of years. Our heritage is built around mature markets in Retail and Gaming and it is through clients in these sectors that we have developed a natural crossover into Sport. One example is our ongoing partnership with the global powerhouse Frasers Group , where we are helping to steer them towards complete data and CRM maturity. It is projects like this that see us very well positioned to help businesses in Sport.
