Customer 360 Profiles UI

In Customer Data Platform (CDP), you can leverage the 360-degree profile for all your marketing activities and customer interactions.

The CDP Customer 360 Profiles application is designed to search and find specific customers, and to access this 360 degree profile of the customer. The search process queries data from individual customer records, and links to the 360 profile of the customers in the search results. This functionality is also available as an API. For more information, see Customer 360 Profiles API Documentation. The Customer 360 Profiles application is built to be configurable to meet unique business needs of our clients.

Searching for a customer

To find a customer, you must enter the full or partial value in one or more search attributes. Currently, the following search attributes are supported:

Attribute

Description

First name

The first name of the customer.

Last name

The last name of the customer.

Email address

The email address of the customer.

Phone number

The phone number of the customer.

Source customer number

The unique customer identifier or primary key that you use to identify your customers in your standard data feed.

Mailing address

The most recent mailing address of the customer as per the source customer number.

  • Address1

  • Address2

  • City

  • State

  • Zip

  • Country

The search functionality provides a lot of flexibility as you can search by full or partial values of one or more searchable attributes. For example, to find a customer whose email is “john.doe@gmail.com”, you can search for the term “john” in the email address field and click Search.

You can select the Exact Match Only checkbox to search for the exact name of the customer.

You can also find customers even when you do not know their full email address, first name, or last name. If you know that the first name of the customer is “John” and the last name starts with a “D”, you can search by adding that information in the First name and Last name fields. The search results include the records that match those criteria. You can navigate from each search result to that customer’s 360 profile UI.

For multiple search results, the full list is paginated with 10 records per page, and the results are sorted according to their relevance to your search, that is, the closest they match your criteria, the higher they are in the list.

Searching multiple words at once

The Customer 360 search functionality can search for multiple words at once. You can provide multiple values for a search attribute and the search looks for any of those values. For example, if you want to search for customer and you know that their first name is Katharina and last name is either “Gunnarsen” or “Guhnnarsen” or “Ghunnarsen”, you can enter all those values as “Gunnarsen Guhnnarsen Ghunnarsen” in the Last name field and click Search. This is an OR search that searches for all customers that have a last name equals to “Gunnarsen” OR “Guhnnarsen” OR “Ghunnarsen”.

360 Profile of a customer

The 360 Profile of a customer contains all the data processed and augmented by CDP. With this information, you can understand the customer and make the right decisions.

Cards

A card is organized into a header and multiple tabs, each of which tackles a specific aspect of that customer’s profile.

  • Header: The top part of the card that shows the first name, last name, email address, phone number, and mailing address of the customer.

  • Overview: A quick overview of the information about your customer. It summarizes the data from the other tabs into the corresponding sections.

  • Profile: Customer attributes such as gender, other phone numbers, opt-out preferences, and most CDP calculations, including the CDP predictive models such as Likelihood to Buy.

  • Journey: A detailed timeline of all interactions between your brand and this customer, across any channel including web and email, and including custom events that may be ingested into CDP. This shows the most recent events first, and you can scroll to see earlier events, or search for specific events by type or date. Some events include more information. For example, “Cart updated” events show you the product number of the item that was added to the cart at that time.

  • Transactions: The full list of transactions this customer placed, ordered by showing the most recent transactions first. You can scroll to see prior transactions. You can expand each transaction to view more details about the items that were purchased, the status of that transaction item, the revenue and discount for that item.

  • Machine Learning (upon request): The results of CDP’s machine learning models, including:

    • Likelihood to Buy

    • Likelihood to Convert

    • Likelihood to Engage

    • Behavior Clusters

    • Product Clusters

    • Product Recommendations

  • Identities: A detailed timeline of the customer records we deduped together to obtain this master profile you are viewing, sorted by date when they were last modified. This shows you a brief list of attributes that are relevant to better understand why and how they were deduped together. For example, first name, last name, email address, and postal address.

  • Household (upon request): A list of the customers that are in the same household as the profile you are currently viewing, with links to their own 360 Profile page. It also shows details about the household attributes such as postal address, and the calculations CDP did on the household members, aggregating them together (sum, averages) to produce a snapshot of the household’s overall metrics.

Note

If you have provided CDP with custom attributes for customers, transactions, and products, they are not displayed by default. However, you can contact your CDP customer value manager (CVM) to get your 360 Application configured to display such custom attributes.

FAQ

When I search by email address, why does the search return a lot more results than expected?

This behavior is expected. If you type the full email address of a customer, including the domain after the @ symbol, the search returns:

  • The list of customers that match the text before the @

  • The list of customers that have an email address with the domain you entered

For example, if you type “john.doe@aol.com” the search returns “john. doe@aol.com” as the first result, and also returns:

  • The list of customers that have an email address starting with “john.doe”

  • The list of customers that have an address “@aol.com”

If you search by the term before the “@” symbol, you get a smaller result set.
