Ascent360 raises $1.9m funding to help retailers leverage customer data

The customer data platform company is set to enable marketers to leverage customer data to provide a more personalised experience

Customer data platform company Ascent360 announced it succeeded in rounding $1.9 million in funding from venture capitalists along with several private investors to help get its new technology into the hands of retail marketers.

The platform aims to turn data into insight and income by providing marketers with online software that helps clients grow revenue, measure ROI, and improve data access and reporting capabilities. Ascent360 also claims to enable marketers to easily integrate customer data across multiple, disparate systems, segment their customers, and send personalised messages across multiple platforms such as email, social, direct mail, and display ads.

With more than 65 deployments across the outdoor sports, retail, manufacturing, and travel and leisure segments, the Colorado-based customer data platform expects to be growing and expanding its reach quickly.

According to Ascent360 CEO, Scott Buelter, benefits of the new funding include enhanced sales and marketing capabilities and the ability to further enhance the product.

“This round of funding allows us the strength we need to add the right talent to get our unique technology into today’s retail marketers and help them to leverage customer data in ways they never knew possible,” he claimed.

Building a human-curated brand

If the FANG (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google) sector and their measured worth are the final argument for the successful 21st Century model, then they are beyond reproach.
