Building the Best R&D and Product Strategy Teams to Meet Customer Needs
Monetate, the worldwide leader in personalization, announced it has expanded its award-winning product strategy team. The three new hires – Scott Reynolds, Kevin Luo, and Tim Jeremicz – hail from leading ecommerce and innovative SaaS companies and bring world-class expertise to helping global brands bring innovative new approaches to their personalization strategies.
Monetate continues to push the boundaries of what is possible in personalization. The Monetate Intelligent Personalization Engine analyzes more than one million data points per sub-second to help brands make more informed decisions about how to engage with their customers on an individual basis – whether via a product recommendation, creative treatment, special offer, or dynamic copy. These recommendations are delivered in sub-second time frames and within the context of all that a brand knows about a consumer, making for one of the most powerful personalized customer experiences possible. As a testament to the company’s innovative approach, Monetate has been recognized as an industry leader by two leading analyst firms in recent months.
