Founded in 1953, ISC is a leading promoter of motorsports-themed entertainment activities in the United States, and is owner / operator of 13 of the nation's premier motorsports entertainment facilities. ISC's Marketing team, through a life-cycle marketing initiative called "fanMAX," promotes well over 100 motorsports events during the racing season, all focusing on the guest experience by applying customer data more effectively."We recognized that creating a highly customized user experience would be impossible without a state-of-the-art data collection methodology and an integrated marketing approach," said Jenelle Kueter, Senior Manager, CRM for ISC. "Today, with Teradata-driven marketing capabilities, we have now established a 360-degree view of the consumer to know every touch point, what customers bought, when they bought it, why and how they made a purchase. Without a solid data-driven foundation - the 'data science' side of marketing – we would be navigating by art and instinct alone. By putting the art and science together, we have become more nimble, accountable and, most importantly, more profitable." Mark Smith, CEO of Ventana Research said, "Our objective with the annual Business Technology Leadership Awards is to distinguish pioneers and leaders -- both organizations and individuals that exemplify clear visionary and transformative leadership. In the area of Marketing Excellence, ISC has demonstrated an understanding that the successful management of their processes and performance requires a heightened level of expertise, determination and a team effort." Lisa Arthur, CMO, Teradata Applications added, "We salute the team at ISC for this well-deserved honor. ISC has illustrated marketing foresight and a strategic approach to capturing and applying customer data more effectively to continuously ensure that each of their customers -- called 'guests' – has experiences that are highly customized and engaging."
