Hence, the client accrues 2X increase in annual returns and is currently projected to grow by 17% Y-o-Y CAGR.


Reaching target accounts successfully and maintaining high email deliverability rates for profitable campaigns.

Despite holding a firm position as a top-tier solutions provider, the client faced a persistent hindrance to achieving high sales: low email engagement. The company had a diverse range of products to offer – from payroll integrations and cx optimizations to task managements and account management – but selling them meant reaching the right eyeballs in the first place. Without sufficient brand awareness, their services/products could never leave the shelves and the low email engagement proved the notion right.

The company’s sales had the following to add – “email engagement metrics showed that less than half our daily emails sent were reaching the targeted inboxes. Several of them bounced back, and existing customers were unsubscribing from our newsletters.”

Upon analysis, our data experts identified a poorly maintained crm, along with the absence of key customer records. Due to these, the client’s campaigning foundation itself was incorrect. Before deploying campaigns, they required a clear picture of the computer software sector and its allied segments. Plus, they also needed accurate customer data to understand which executives and decision-making professionals were actively seeking the products sold by the client, like: –

  • Scheduling software
  • Attendance and accountability optimization
  • Payroll integration
  • Account management solutions
  • Time tracking software
  • Mobile application for workforce tracking
  • Leave management solutions
  • Fair workweek compliance service
  • Auto scheduling
  • Shift swapping programs
  • Remote working solutions

By evaluating and segmenting customers based on their needs, the client could understand their total addressable market (tam). This would further help the sales and marketing unit focus on lucrative markets and concentrate on converting the hottest leads located within them.

What’s more, they were in dire need of a versatile database instead of a homegrown repository with a one-fits-all undertone. Since the client catered to multiple audience groups, it was essential for them to consider various customers’ solution needs and to use that data to engage them asap.

What Happened Next?
The client needed to patch up the leaks quickly. Hence, Edward sourced a local data provider and invested a hefty amount in their services, hoping to turn around the email engagement scenario for the better.

However, that was far from what happened. The provider’s email repository, although vast, mostly provided outdated email addresses and incomplete customer records. As a result, the client’s CRM was now filled with umpteen records that lacked the juice to target credible and prospective inboxes. Instead of improving the situation, this database worsened it, further increasing hard bounce rates. The investment simply led to the sales team getting blindsided with incorrect insights and a low-quality mailing list that lacked any lead-gen capability whatsoever.
