Confidently optimize across millions of possible marketing offers.

With FICO Marketing Offer Optimization capabilities, organizations can maximize the expected cumulative value (short-term or long-term profit, ROI or any other objective) while satisfying critical business constraints (marketing budget, channel capacities, offer inventory levels) across multiple marketing channels. By adding optimization to your current investments you’re able to go from simply predicting who is likely to respond to the next level of digital decisioning with highly granular segmentation capabilities – where significant gains are realized. Optimization determines which action/offer to provide to each customer at a particular point in time, which channel to use and the number of interactions per individual. Deliver these personalized offers effectively with seamless execution from existing campaign management systems.
