Vision Express Brings Customer Insight Into Sharp Focus With Informatica

Stocks in this article: INFA

LONDON, England and REDWOOD CITY, Calif, Nov. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Informatica Corporation (Nasdaq:INFA), the world's number one independent provider of data integration software, today announced that Vision Express has standardized on Informatica to win more optical customers and grow market share. This leading U.K.-based optical retail group is using the best-of-breed solution for data integration and business intelligence to unlock the hidden value of the company's fast-growing data. This valuable data is being used to cross-sell and up-sell glasses, contact lenses and other optical accessories, while simultaneously maintaining more intimate and rewarding customer relationships.

Part of Europe's largest optical retail group, GrandVision, Vision Express has grown fast since its creation in 1988 and now has more than 325 stores delivering leading optical care. The retail group chose Informatica, based on a number of factors. Informatica offered a platform-independent, scalable solution that is widely acknowledged among customers, analysts and other communities as a best-in-class platform for data integration and business intelligence. Informatica also offers the company an open, standardized development environment. Specific features of the technology, including the data quality matching, metadata management and impact analysis capabilities also influenced the decision. Informatica was named a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools, published July 17, 2013, by Eric Thoo et al.

Timely, deep-rooted integration of specific information captured during the customer marketing, decision and purchase process will enable Vision Express to put the potential of its data to work: providing consistent, high performance access to accurate information for all users across the business.

By uncovering critical customer insights, via a complete customer view, and steering the company away from passive marketing to agile, active marketing, Vision Express anticipates being able to launch new marketing campaigns 50 per cent faster than before. The solution will also significantly reduce the company's IT costs, by lowering the resources devoted to application development and maintenance.
