eBureau helps consumer-facing businesses make smarter decisions - through big data and predictive analytics

eBureau

Our role:
eBureau got its start in 2004 by entrepreneur Gordy Meyer when he and a group of industry veterans identified a critical, unmet need among consumer-facing businesses — the need to make better informed, data-driven, and instant business decisions about consumers each and every day: "Who is more likely to become a customer?" "Will they respond to our marketing offer?" "Is this individual likely to pay?"

Knowing a thing or two about big data and predictive analytics, eBureau went to work and reinvented how custom statistical scores were developed and deployed to help businesses answer these types of questions.

Using predictive analytics to model the characteristics of current customers and accounts allows us to make predictions about the nature of future behaviors. Our eScores provide a clear and measurable way to help businesses assess the likelihood of a desired outcome as they go about their daily operations.

Today, we offer a wide range of solutions that provide real-time insight to help interactive marketers cut through the complexity, identify their ideal prospects and dynamically deliver the right offer at the right time.


Our solutions:
eBureau’s patented technology analyzes vast amounts of predictive data to offer instant insights across multiple industries, from higher education to financial services to automotive and insurance marketers.
