The Customer Life Loop

Data and Analytics

Does Match.com know more about your customer than you do?

The average dating service has terabytes of data about every member. How much do you really know about your customer?

Harte Hanks’ Data and Analytics group employs the talents of skilled data science professionals, supported by cutting edge technology tools and platforms. And futuristic machine learning that’s taking customer modeling to places it has never been. We work within a complex technological ecosystem, but the endgame is simple: to turn intricate customer data into approachable and usable customer narratives.

Strategy

Imagine if customers would actually do what they say they would do

What a wonderful world that would be. But customers’ attitudes and behaviors are often out of sync. At Harte Hanks we seek to understand why customers do what they do — the uncommon insight. Our charge is to unmask the interplay between behaviors and attitudes.

OUR TEAM CONSISTS OF

Ethnographers, cultural anthropologists, human geographers. Social scientists in the pursuit of understanding the psychology of motivation.

Creative

Is your message getting lost in translation?

At Harte Hanks we speak “customer.” This is where research, ethnographies, data, statistics, graphs and numbers get interpreted into words, phrases and visuals. Add a touch of imagination and ingenuity and the result is motivating, compelling and often unexpected. Our data and analytics give us the tools to stimulate your customers’ brains. Our Behavioral Index gives us the insights to touch their hearts. It is the intersection of the rational and emotional that provokes customer action.

In our world, action is everything.
Because that translates directly into sales.

Customer Care

To speak with empathy. To hear with your heart.

The average phone call is five minutes long. It can determine whether your brand goes from hero to zero. Or vice versa. Our 2,000 customer care associates stand between your customer and your brand. With each call, they become your brand. They are your voice.

At the same time, they are your customer’s advocate. They know every call is a call for help. And a customer heard is a customer earned.

And build sophisticated solutions into websites and portals to address and resolve almost any customer concern—with a fully automated interaction. Saving your customers time and aggravation. Because the faster the resolution, the deeper the brand loyalty.
