Direct Marketing Association (DMA) Chooses Infogroup to Power Its Multichannel Marketing Efforts

Utilizing Data, Analytics, E-mail and Database Platform Management All Under One Roof

(OMAHA, NE) - Infogroup, the leading provider of data driven and interactive resources for targeted sales, marketing and research solutions today announced it will help power the Direct Marketing Association's (DMA) multichannel marketing efforts. Under the agreement, Infogroup will work with the DMA to develop, update and maintain a state-of-the-art marketing database platform for the management of combined customer and prospect data.

The DMA will utilize Infogroup's unique combination of products and services to gain a 360 degree view of their membership and demonstrate to new and existing members the value of belonging to the association.

"As the leading global trade association for direct marketers, the DMA is committed to using the most effective multichannel direct marketing tools available. Infogroup stood out because they could provide everything we needed all under one roof," said Karina Pena Garcia, Senior Marketing Director of DMA. "Rather than managing multiple vendor relationships, we can just concentrate on one Company. Their breadth of services and the ability to fit our needs now as well as providing the flexibility for our future growth needs is what made this appealing for us."

The Infogroup solution will be built around five main pillars; data, analytics, reporting, e-mail and database platform management. These enhanced capabilities will help increase the quality of the DMA's databases, improve time to market for DMA programs, provide more effective analysis of data for DMA marketing managers and provide a platform for more effective targeting of promotions and communications to current and prospective DMA members.

"We're pleased that Infogroup will play such an integral role in helping the DMA fulfill its mission to support direct marketers," said Clare Hart, President and Chief Executive Officer at Infogroup. "Infogroup shares that commitment, with products and services which help our clients reach their growth targets through more effective marketing. This is a win-win for us and the DMA."
