Challenges & Solutions
Preference and Consent Data Silos
Many times, consent and preference data reside in various disconnected or unsynchronized systems. Companies need a way to eliminate silos and consolidate customer data. They need a single source of truth for consent and preferences, across the company’s lines of business that is accessible to everyone who needs it.
Centralized Preferences and Consent
PossibleNOW leverages an advanced toolset that can be tailored to meet data collection requirements across departments and various use cases. We then aggregate the consent and preference data into a centralized repository. Once this data is consolidated, it is shared via APIs across the organization. Consent and preference data silos from legacy systems can then be eliminated. This helps the company stay in compliance while still meeting customer expectations in servicing communications and other engagements.
Haphazard Compliance Practices
As companies grow, whether organic expansion or through acquisitions, their compliance practices are often disjointed and haphazard. Different divisions or departments utilize different technologies, systems, and campaigns, making a consolidated approach to customer data privacy and protection difficult. This puts the company at significant risk of litigation or reputation damage for being noncompliant. As regulations change and evolve, the company falls further behind the compliance goalpost, putting them at increasing risk.
Companies need their data management processes to comply with existing and emerging regulations governing preference and consent data. The process must also enable the company to integrate into existing campaigns, content, and analytics systems such as Eloqua, Tibco’s Scribe, Adobe Experience Manager (AEM), Google Analytics, etc, simplifying the company’s tech stack, reducing data silos, and helping the company with their compliance goals across the organization.
Best Practice Approach to Regulatory Compliance
- a regulation and compliance audit, best practices, and educational understanding around state, federal, and international requirements.
- assess current practices on explicit and implicit consent across all customer touchpoints and make recommendations so that you can build the appropriate cadence for collecting consent.
- assess current opt-out capabilities and strategies to help prevent global opt-outs (unsubscribing from all). The global opt-out is typically the only option offered by our customers, and we help provide an opt-down strategy while staying compliant.
MyPreferences collects and consolidates customer consents and preferences and integrates them within a company’s existing tech stack. MyPreferences utilizes an Integration Platform (iPaaS) with hundreds of prebuilt connectors (including Salesforce, Marketo, Eloqua, SAP, MS Dynamics, Amazon, Adobe, and a host of others) for standing up near real-time cloud-based integrations that keep client systems current as regulations and data changes over time, with no coding required. MyPreferences can integrate with dozens of external systems on a client’s behalf. If the client can receive a file or be contacted via an API, MyPreferences can push the data to any system.
Disjointed Preference Data Strategy
Some companies struggle with too many unique preferences across the enterprise and need an organized plan to consolidate them. Others plan to continue with granular preferences based on a customer’s unique profile but need a strategy and visibility across the enterprise on frequency, governance, and compliance. A company must assess which approach is best suited to their needs.
When companies lack visibility across customer types, products, brands, geographies, languages, etc. they risk:
- Being noncompliant.
- Offering too many preferences, resulting in poor customer experiences and an unmanageable dataset.
- Elevating the number of customers who globally opt out of all communications rather than a single communication opt-out strategy. Global opt-outs result in the company no longer being able to send marketing-based communications.

JLL International Communications Center
JLL provides their customers localized preference and interest offerings for over 200 countries and 20 languages. Preference options include articles, research, events, and press releases regarding specific topics. Sample communications are provided to help with opt-in conversions. Customers can select single or multiple geographical locations. The next phase of preferences will include property alerts on a global scale, to allow users to choose by investment and/or lease-based properties, markets, types, price and more.
Ingram Micro International Communications
Ingram Micro has extensive email preferences given the complexity of their global organization, providing thousands of products to distributors and VARs (Value Added Resellers). Initially, Ingram Micro had too many preferences across their lines of business and the countries they serve. They determined through collaborative strategic workshops and taxonomies to reduce the various instances in Eloqua and standardize a single set of preferences that would work for all lines of business and countries for optimal management.
Throughout their global footprint, Ingram Micro relies on PossibleNOW’s MyPreferences, for preference management and GDPR compliance in providing a positive communication experience in a user’s preferred language and region.
