Take Your CX Beyond CDP Limits

Today, organizations like yours rely on traditional MarTech systems like Customer Data Platforms to collect data from a variety of sources to create a unified view of the customer. Centralizing data isn’t enough to deliver intuitive, personalized experiences – context and real-time decisioning are needed to execute CDP insights.


Many marketing technology (MarTech) stacks include a customer data platform. While managing customer data is necessary, a customer data platform alone isn’t enougho improve the customer experience.

What’s the Difference?

but don’t make it actionable.

Where CDP’s Fall Short

A CDP centralizes data, but doesn’t make the data actionablehrough timely, personalized interactions.

Data alone isn’t enough to achieve meaningful outcomes.

You need CJM—the intelligent brain that analyzes data, anticipates customer needs, and guides your actions.

CDPs can not send messages in real-time based on current behavior, rather it is a delayed send resulting in a potential missed opportunity to engage with a customer at an opportune time.

Green Filters Icon


Customer data platforms provide a comprehensive view of customer data, but they don’t necessarily give you the context needed to understand customer behavior and intent, so “personalized” experiences are often generic based on elements like name or demographic data.

Journey-Centric Decisioning

While they deliver a unified view of customer interactions with your brand, customer data platforms don’t provide intelligent, journey-centric decisioning. They can’t determine the right communications to send customers who are on multiple, different journeys (e.g., customer support and purchase).

CJM brings your systems together.

Unlocking the Potential of CJM:
Transforming Data into Tangible Results


Transforming Data Chart


CJM selects the right channel,iming, and message sequence, leading customers to optimal outcomes
that enhance business results and the customer experience.


Shopping Cart Abandonment


Detect that a customer abandoned products in a shopping cart or stopped completing a credit card application.


Decide which channel and content combination is best to nudge the customer to complete the purchase or application.


Immediately send the personalized message via the customer’s preferred channel. After the customer completes the purchase/application, confirm the transaction and provide details re: delivery/next steps.
