An EdgeLink Data Integration Case Study
Integrating and Updating Data for Over One Million Customers
The nation’s leading provider of originating and managing non-prime consumer credit programs to retailers and health organizations through private-label programs.
Our client acquired the majority of a major jeweler’s credit operations, thereby instantly increasing their customer base from 500,000 to 1,100,000. This sudden influx of 600,000 new customers meant a major database update was needed in order to properly integrate them into the system. The biggest challenge would be to perform this integration without interrupting service to current customers or creating a vulnerable security breach. Protecting the private information of each customer was a high priority.
The four-month project was successfully completed on time, with 600,000 new customers seamlessly integrated into our client’s system. There was no service interruption to any previously-existing customers, as data integrity was maintained throughout the integration. All applications continued running without incident, and our client now enjoys a more efficient, secure, and robust system.
