SAS provides integrated marketing functionality to Europe’s leading drugstore chain  

SAS helps build customer loyalty, streamline marketing programs for dm-drogerie markt Group

Germany’s dm – drogerie markt Group has licensed software from business analytics leader SAS to integrate its marketing activities. SAS will help the drug store chain coordinate digital marketing campaigns, customer rewards programs, corporate communications and new store launches while streamlining marketing operations. dm will use SAS® Customer Intelligence, an integrated marketing management solution, throughout its 2,800 stores in 12 European countries.

“Ensuring that different communications channels work together hand-in-hand is important if you want to reach customers,” said Roman Melcher, dm General Manager and Head of Information Technology/FILIDATA. “The new software gives us everything we need while also giving us new ways to keep improving our marketing activities.”

An increased focus on digital marketing activities posed a challenge for the software dm used previously. With SAS, dm’s most complex marketing processes will be easier to handle.

“dm is known for its holistic approach to customer relationships,” said Wolf Lichtenstein, CEO DACH Region, SAS. “This is an area where the SAS integrated marketing management solution is particularly strong. It will help dm address individual customers at the right time, through the right channel, and with the right message while promoting process visibility for all stakeholders.”
