Cross-Channel Campaign Execution

Today's marketers need the ability to execute triggered, recurring and one-time campaigns on every channel. They need the ability to visually build workflows based on customer behavior at every step of the customer lifecycle. Equally important is the ability to set message limits at a per customer level to avoid the problem of message overload if a customer triggers multiple workflows. A/B testing and optimization are key to delivering the optimal customer experience.
