TransUnion Acquires Signal, 'People-Based' Data Firm

Information giant TransUnion has acquired Signal, a Chicago-based technology company that helps brands structure and use consumer data to drive customer retention and loyalty. Terms were not disclosed. 

TransUnion seeks to help clients “use data and insights to provide a better experience for their customers,” states Steve Chaouki, president, U.S. markets for TransUnion. 

Chaouki notes that Signal’s products “complement our existing marketing solutions.”
