NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Persado, the provider of a machine learning platform that automates the generation of persuasive copy, announced today that it has been included in Gartner’s October 3, 2015 research report, Top Strategic Predictions for 2016 and Beyond: The Future Is a Digital Thing.
The report, which reviews strategic trends in smart technologies and their impact on business practices and individual behaviors, highlights that "Smartness" is now everywhere in the work environment, with consequences that are difficult for enterprise decision makers to foresee. The problem is one of scale: If a marketer has thousands (or millions) of prospects and customers, it is not possible for humans to generate thousands (or millions) of different messages. The report also defines a new class of solutions, automated composition technologies, and predicts that within three years (by 2018), 20 percent of all business content will be authored by machines.
According to the report, “Improvements in machine learning, data integration and predictive analytics apps for all areas of business content are combining to inspire a new class of solutions.”
“Gartner’s mention of Persado further validates the huge demand we are seeing from the market for automated persuasive language generation and we are excited to be recognized as a leader in this fast emerging space,” said Alex Vratskides, Persado CEO and Co-founder. “We remain committed to driving the evolution of how marketers create compelling, emotionally engaging language and to maintaining our role as a leader in automated content generation.”
Persado’s family of products includes Persado Enterprise, the company’s flagship persuasion automation platform, and Persado Go, the first ever completely automated self-service persuasion automation for email subject lines targeted at customers requiring instant campaign execution through an easy-to-use interface. The company recently announced the expansion of it’s Persado Go platform, to include six new vertical markets.
