Connect With Your Audience, Build Rich Profiles Based On Trust and Drive Better Digital Strategy with Customer Data: Gigya

thesiliconreview-patrick-salyer-ceo-gigya-2017Today, one of the greatest sources of competitive differentiation comes from how firms exploit digital technologies to win, serve, and retain customers. Customers now have unprecedented control over the success of a firm.

Nowadays, organizations are engaging with customers via every possible digital channel. In this era of digitization, trust plays a critical role for all parties, especially for the consumer. The more customers trust the service provided by the firm, the more they use it. The real key to this is the confidence that the consumer has in the service that their privacy has been considered from the outset, their preferences are easy to consent and adhere to, and that the service is easy as well as secure to use.

This enables businesses to maximize the value of their customer relationships while fostering lasting, brand-building trust with consumers and meeting the requirements of ever-evolving data protection and privacy laws and regulations.

Customer Identity and Access Management

As businesses transform digitally, they face big challenges driven by mega-trends in the global marketplace, including consumer demand for more seamless and relevant experiences across devices and channels in exchange for their data; an onslaught of new regional data protection and privacy regulations and the ever-changing policies of social networks and other identity providers (IdPs), and; increasing account takeover attacks and data breaches in the wake of poor password usage.

As the leader in customer identity and access management (CIAM), Gigya helps businesses identify, engage and build a single view of each customer, to better understand who they are and fuel relevant, personalized experiences across their journey — from awareness to advocacy. Gigya’s platform is designed to meet privacy, compliance and security best practices without sacrificing user experience.

Enterprise Preference Manager

Due to new data privacy acts, including the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), businesses must give consumers more control over the personal data collected from them, including all online preference and consent settings. Because of this, businesses must find a more centralized, comprehensive and secure way to manage their customers’ preferences.

Gigya Enterprise Preference Manager helps put customers back in control of their own profile information and preferences for communications and marketing activities. It also centralizes the collection and recording of customers’ consent for these activities, as well as for terms of service and privacy policies, enables tracking of various versions of consent records across the customer lifecycle for auditing purposes, and synchronizes preference and consent settings with all downstream applications.
