“Take a look at any marketing technology landscape report and it’s clear how hot the intersection of loyalty and marketing automation is. There are big companies that are delivering some amount of personalized engagement, but it’s rooted in email. There are smaller innovative companies that understand the unique opportunities of mobile, but they’re not scaled to handle enterprise volume,” said Simon. “What makes SessionM so unique is its ability to deliver true personalization, with tremendous speed at tremendous scale. That’s what customers expect their brands to deliver in exchange for loyalty. SessionM is uniquely positioned to offer that kind of differentiated experience for its customers.”
“Michael understands the importance of the user experience and how technology can be applied to make that journey more elegant, instead of more complicated,” said Lars Albright, co-founder and CEO of SessionM. “The more personal and elegant the engagements, the more frequent and profitable the transactions. We’re looking forward to his guidance and expertise as we continue to develop solutions for our growing roster of Fortune 5000 companies in the year ahead.”
