Deceased Data

Identify deceased individuals quickly and easily, using credible sources updated on a regular basis.

There is one audience that will never respond to your communications, no matter how many times you target them and no matter how compelling your message.

In the year to mid-2020, there were 669,000 deaths; this is the most in a mid-year reference period since 1986, and 13% higher than in the year to mid-2019, reflecting the impact of wave one of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.



Improved ROI on your Marketing Campaigns

One of the most compelling arguments for having accurate data is the cost. When you add the cost of mailing and postage, together with the cost of producing leaflets or catalogues, the cost starts to escalate. If you are planning on following up the mailing campaign with phone calls, you can add in staff costs and telephone charges. When that is multiplied across a sizeable database, and multiplied again by a number of mailing campaigns, it is clear that removing deceased data earlier could represent a substantial saving.


Limit reputation damage

Avoid sending communications to deceased individuals and protect your brand image.If you think only disreputable companies fail to clean their data, think again. We have all heard of horror stories of major brands sending letters to deceased individuals causing huge upset and damage to their brands. Errors like these are easily avoided by ensuring your data is checked against a trusted deceased suppression file.


Enhance Business Analysis

With accurate data you will be able to review customer behaviour and gain actionable insight. There is a serious confidence issue surrounding the data provided to senior management, but this can easily spread to other parts of the organisation. Data should be one of your most valuable assets, but if it stops delivering results and data users become aware of inconsistencies and inaccuracies, then the value of this asset falls dramatically.
