Seurat Company Shares Winning Strategies for Profit Improvement; Precision Marketing White Paper Details New Approaches That Measurably Increase Revenues and Margins; Features Interviews, Case Studies of Business Transformation From Fortune 500 Firms.

BOULDER, Colo. -- Privately-held Seurat Company, the leader in Precision Marketing Outsourcing, today announced the immediate availability of a new white paper that describes winning strategies for uncovering high-margin revenue opportunities that may otherwise go untapped. Available at no charge and intended for CEOs, chief marketing officers, and other C-level executives, the white paper examines a sophisticated, new predictive modeling approach that substantially increases the accuracy and effectiveness of direct marketing programs and integrates them across all customer touchpoints. The white paper provides examples of major companies that have realized measurable results through the use of such techniques.

Based on a synthesis of interviews and experiences, collected over a three-year period with more than 90,000 individual respondents and including 200 businesses, the white paper details how leading companies are increasing their wallet share and improving customer acquisition and retention through Precision Marketing. In one case, a Fortune 500 retailer increased revenues by more than $60 million annually, within a three-year period, by more precisely targeting cross-sell/up-sell offers through its contact centers.

"This paper gives senior executives a jumpstart on more effective marketing that addresses their top priority: growing revenues and profits. They need to better know and better serve existing and prospective customers by giving them what they want, when they want it, in the manner they desire, and at the price they expect," said John Oltman, CEO of Seurat Company, and one of the authors of the white paper. "That's precision marketing. It sounds easy, but it's extremely difficult to execute well and requires very sophisticated technologies and techniques."

Companies wanting to properly execute Precision Marketing programs need to command an array of competencies including analytical capabilities, process innovation, and enabling technologies. The necessary elements include data warehouses, sophisticated analytics performed by statisticians and economists, and campaign management tools and experts, all of which must work together seamlessly and be integrated across marketing channels. However, most companies simply cannot justify the sizable, upfront and ongoing investments in infrastructure, systems integration, and people required to get it right. Furthermore, they cannot afford the risk of reorganizing brand and product groups around customer segments, which is necessary for effective Precision Marketing.

Seurat's Precision Marketing Outsourcing model responds to these needs by providing Fortune 500 companies with a "shared service" that crosses organizational boundaries and saves them significant time and money. Seurat Suite(TM) is a portfolio of Precision Marketing services that provide all of the infrastructure, processes, experts, technology and management tools a company needs. It reduces clients' risks by allowing them to quickly benefit from advanced Precision Marketing techniques, without the onus or expense of developing and maintaining an in-house capability.

The Seurat white paper, entitled "Precision Marketing: Optimizing Profitability from a CEO's Perspective," is free and now available for downloading at .
