What’s the inspiration behind Cordial’s unique Adapative Messaging Marketing Technology?
Cordial was founded in 2014, by Jeremy Swift (CEO), David Baker, Chris McGreal (Product Leader) and Adam Gillespie (CTO). Revealing the story behind Cordial’s conception, David Baker, Co-founder and Chief Strategy and Operation Officer at Cordial says –
“We love marketing…But we didn’t love the solutions anymore because they didn’t allow us to be as agile, smart or innovative as we knew we could be. So we wiped the slate clean and did something about it. We built Cordial: a true solution, powered by machine learning, built to empower marketers to see more, do more and reach more people in more powerful ways. Today, many brands are doing just that, as revealed by Cordial’s adoption pace.”
The funding will help Cordial accelerate its adaptive messaging platform, focusing majorly on product innovation and development efforts. Meanwhile, the leading adaptive messaging firm is also considered to be a prolific start-up in San Diego, It ranked as a semi-finalist in DMA’s HOT ZONE event. At the ongoing eTail West 2017, Cordial is expected to announce the launch of Cordial Experiments and beta-launch of Cordial Recommendations for the retail industry.
