SAN FRANCISCO, May 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Segment, the customer data platform, today announced the general availability of Personas, a new product which helps businesses intelligently organize, synthesize and act on their customer data. With Personas, companies can effectively leverage Segment’s first-party customer data infrastructure to provide a consistent user experience across email, web, advertising, push notifications, in-store and more, while also being respectful of customer privacy.
Previously, leveraging first-party customer data for consistent personalization across all channels was a massive data and infrastructure problem. Customers expect businesses to remember who they are based on their past interactions — whether through a mobile app, website, emails, ads, push notifications, live chats, in-store, or the support and sales team. Each conversation with customers should incorporate context from their past interactions, no matter where those occurred. This requires an infrastructure that allows companies to leverage and activate their customer data across all channels.
Personas Improves Customer Engagement and Supports Team Efficiency
Built on Segment’s customer data infrastructure, Personas automatically organizes a customer’s history with a business into a central record that updates in real-time. With this unified profile, marketing, product and support teams can easily understand and act on what’s important to each customer.
Using Personas, businesses are able to:
"Personas gives us the clear and complete understanding of our customers that we need to improve our marketing and support initiatives and interact with them in the ways they appreciate most," said Kyle Gesuelli, head of growth at Frame.io. "With Personas, we've been able to cut our marketing campaign coordination time by 50 percent and improve performance by 50 percent. We’ve also reduced handling time for complex support tickets by up to 80 percent. These kind of metrics would be impossible without Personas.”
A Unified View of the Customer
Segment Personas enables companies to cut through the noise and treat customers like people, not data points. There are three key pillars of Personas:
“The most inspiring companies put their customers first. In order to deliver personal experiences without sacrificing customer privacy, companies must build the right infrastructure. But few have the engineering resources required to do this,” said Peter Reinhardt, co-founder and CEO of Segment. “Personas allows businesses to leverage Segment’s simple and scalable first-party customer data infrastructure to deliver the experience each of their customers want at scale, while being respectful of their privacy.”
