Harte-Hanks Trillium Software Selected by Sportingbet for Financial and Marketing Data Governance

The Trillium Software System Will Support the Financial Reconciliation of Notified Payments With Those Received and Also Help to Prevent Duplicate Customer Accounts

READING, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sep 6, 2011) - Trillium Software®, a business of Harte-Hanks, Inc. (NYSE: HHS) and a leading enabler of Total Data Quality solutions, today announced that Sportingbet (LSE: SBT), a leading British online gaming company, will implement the Trillium Software System®.

"We have multiple data feeds from payment providers, and we need to reconcile them with our customers' transactions," said Mr Giuseppe Saltini, enterprise data architect at Sportingbet. "The feed data comes in many different formats, and using the Trillium Software System to automatically standardise and match it to our ledger system will enable us to reconcile payments accurately, quickly and cost-effectively."

Sportingbet will also create a Single Customer View, where potential new customers can be matched with any existing betting account they might hold, in order both to improve customer service and to save costs by ensuring only those customers entitled to a welcome bonus actually receive one.

Across all industries, businesses are under increasing pressure to meet the demands of industry regulations, ensure the accuracy of customer information and improve operating efficiency. In launching response initiatives, organisations must first ensure themselves as to the quality of their data, or else suffer delays, increased costs and other inefficiencies.

"Organisations are becoming very aware that a clear data quality strategy is fundamental to the success of their business process goals -- from financial governance through to customer marketing and loyalty activities," said Ed Wrazen, vice president marketing, international at Harte-Hanks Trillium Software. "The Trillium Software System is an integrated, unified and scalable platform for data quality across every data source and business function."

Sportingbet considered various competing solutions, selecting the Trillium Software System not only because it matched their criteria and performed best in trials, but also that business users found the interface and the data quality rule controls to be the most intuitive of the products presented.
