Background information

Background: The Direct Sales & Digital Marketing department is part of the Air France-KLM Benelux organization. The department consists of 5 domains: Direct Sales, E-Commerce, E-Marketing, Customer Intelligence and Digital Analytics. Primarily, Customer Intelligence (CI) is responsible for the optimization of the long term customer value. Moreover, CI strives to obtain the highest level of customer knowledge in order to strategically exploit and use this knowledge. Among other things, CI is involved in the following business processes: customer insights, in-depth research, decision support, CRM, innovation and database marketing in general.

In the past Customer Intelligence took on a more operational role. However, this is a missed opportunity in a continuously changing world where technology is leading. The customer requires technology for the sake of efficiency and expects companies to use the technology in order to provide a more relevant and personalized service. At the end of 2014 the Single Client View (SCV) database, containing several data sources, was founded. Thanks to the SCV it is possible to observe the client from different perspectives, track customer behavior over time and hence obtain useful insights regarding the needs of the customer.
