Overall Satisfaction with IBM Campaign

We have been using IBM Campaign as a campaign management tool for 5 years now. It is so powerful for us to know exactly what we send to our customers or non-customers and when they received it. For a call-center perspective it is extremely useful, but for a marketing perspective as well. We can build predictive models more powerful than before with these insights. In addition, the response tracking helps us to know which campaign has been more successful, based on their lift. So, in this case, it is easier to adapt our communications for our market.

I strongly recommend this application.
  • Contact History of our campaigns.
  • Response History to know what kind of campaigns work well.
  • Extremely powerful. If you have the right access to the database, the sky is the limit.
  • Perfect for larger companies in telecommunications or banking.
  • The version 8.6 was not user-friendly at all. This is not ergonomic compared to other applications.
  • Complex to learn at the beginning.
  • You can have some glitches and IBM is not the best for fixing this, unless you are one of their biggest clients. Better to have a good third party to help you like us.
  • It is feasible use a control group on our Unadress Mail campaigns, what was impossible in the past.
  • We can calculate the ROI for each campaign
  • We know where our competitors are developping their network
The contact history and the response history are so powerful. You can track whatever you want to help the call center to push relevant offers to our customer. In addition, predictive models can be built, with patience, in IBM Campaign. If you have some complaints from the call center about any campaigns, you can easily validate it into the contact or response history.
You can produce every type of multichannel campaign. With a good dedicated team for this application (guys from IT, marketing and/or finance) you can do whatever you want. With this application, we were able to leverage our knowledge of our competitors with some geo-marketing campaigns. As we do Email, Door to Door, Outbound Telemarketing, Inbound, Unadressed Mail, Unsold and Direct Mail campaigns, IBM Campaign is a really good choice for our company. Otherwise, for small player, maybe it is too complex.
