TechBytes with Robert McGovern, CEO at PreciseTarget

What inspired you to start PreciseTarget? It all started with a question: why don't all retailers personalize their e-commerce experience? The journey led me to understand that retailers have sparse data about their customers. For example, the largest non-Amazon apparel retailer averages only two items sold per customer, per year. If you only buy a sweater and a pair of socks from a merchant, it barely knows you. Compare this with Amazon, which is selling over 100 items per year to its prime customers. PreciseTarget's…

In case that figure isn’t troubling enough, here are a few more reasons why you need to take…
