Key to Success:

  • Files analyzed by RAL's schema detection parsed out all erroneous records that didn’t conform – keeping bad data from entering the system
  • Speed of onboarding onto RAL solution ensured process was completed in under four weeks
  • Analytics team pushed CRM models to all people-based, addressable platforms (email, paid social)
  • Time saved provided efficiencies to build additional models and connect those models to positively impact performance


A large beverage retailer wanted to use data across multiple channels (email, digital, CRM) to understand the different events a customer experienced before purchasing additional products. The desired end state would enable insights to drive campaign performance as well as provide an understanding of how those touches impact customer lifecycle. 

​Unfortunately, media, CRM, and email analytics have historically been siloed ventures across teams and technology. ​These silos prohibit the integration of historical data to build the appropriate models.


  • Onboard the client onto RAL to automatically load over 50 different data feeds.
  • Configure CDI processing using Merkle’s cR-KB product to perform hygiene and identity resolution across multiple sources. 
  • Utilize RAL analytics environment to connect media and email engagements to actual performance and effect on customer lifecycle.
