Database Marketing - Making Better Decisions (414 words)
This new "desktop database marketing" represents a new focus—on the decision maker not the computer. The computer is merely a tool to help make better decisions.
The effectiveness of any service bureau, software tool or piece of hardware should not be evaluated based on how large or efficient the computer resources might be. They should be judged by how effectively they produce better decisions.
