Schober Information Group is among the TOP 100

27. June 2016
The Ditzingen company reaches the elite of German innovators / Tribute from TOP 100 mentor Ranga Yogeshwar Ditzingen, 27 June 2016 – The TOP 100 – honouring the most innovative German SMEs – have been awarded for the 23rd time. This year, the Schober Information Group Germany GmbH is among the innovation elite. In the lead-up, the Ditzingen company was part of a demanding, scientific selection process which looked into innovation management and what it takes for innovation to succeed. Patron of the innovation competition Ranga Yogeshwar honoured the top innovators at the German SME Summit on 24 June in Essen. Innovative ideas, paired with a long-term approach and constant willingness to change, have helped the Schober Information Group Germany GmbH on its way to market leadership in Germany and to a position among the international leaders in the sector. The company, which has been awarded the TOP 100 seal of approval, has developed since its inception in 1947 from a local provider into an international player which offers personalised, multi-channel marketing solutions. 74 of a total 150 employees work at the headquarters in Ditzingen, close to Stuttgart, with further sites in locations including Berlin, Warsaw and Zurich. As a top innovator, the company is active in a field heavily influenced by the rapid development of the IT and marketing industries. “Success can only be achieved if it is possible to awaken an enthusiasm for innovation in our employees and to get them ready for new challenges in online marketing,” says the CEO Ulrich Schober. This is just one of the reasons that the company focuses on the education and training of its employees and is pressing ahead with digital transformation in many areas. “We have time and space for trying out ideas,” adds Schober. He sees it as a key to the success of the company. This pays off because a large number of the company’s own innovations come from in-house. These include the restructuring and redevelopment of the internal data selection software with which the efficiency of the sales team was so successfully increased. But Schober’s customers also benefit from the innovative strength of the family business. This means that advertising companies can create anonymous links between online and offline data in the new Data Management Platform (DMP). They can also plan, manage and control downstream display, mobile and social media campaigns more efficiently. Ranga Yogeshwar (l.)

Hitting the Target Dead On: New Version of Schober Business TargetBase

13. June 2016
Real-time data sourcing and a new unique algorithm to help identify relevant keywords and even better segmentation of B2B audiences. Ditzingen, 2 June 2016 – Many consumers feel that advertising which is not relevant to them is annoying and intrusive. Companies which advertise their products and services must ensure that they actually reach the target groups which are receptive to them. Targeted and precise segmentations help not only to raise awareness of a company’s own content, but also to implement efficient campaigns with less wastage. The new version of the Business TargetBase from Schober will allow customers to be even better and more efficient in compiling their B2B audiences in the future. This is possible through customised real-time data sourcing and a new unique algorithm. With Schober, the structure of the customer base can be analysed and relevant keywords defined to attract new customers – without rigid industry classification. “Our customers can discover, for example, which keywords are linked to one of their products, and which potential new customers from our database may come into the picture. This means that new customers can be indexed in a targeted way and peer groups can be found which they have not even previously thought of,” says Ulrich Schober, CEO of the Schober Information Group. “Advertisers need flexibility – not only in their choice of communication channels, but also in the segmentation of their target groups. With our dynamic database, they can achieve this goal directly and accurately while taking advantage of the full scope of our Business TargetBase product; on request, this can even be in the form of their own Database on Demand, which includes regular maintenance and updates from us.” Business TargetBase, Germany’s leading enterprise database for marketing, sales and strategic decisions, offers companies access to nearly 5 million company addresses, 4 million CEOs/shareholders and over 1 million other second-tier decision makers. Customers can choose information from 6,500 detail groups and supplement their segmentation with special information such as promotional activity and affinity with the Internet – upon request, this can include international data. For personalised B2B email campaigns, more than 2 million email addresses are available.
