This new feature is designed to help companies better utilise the rich customer data captured by Dynamic Yield across enterprise systems including email service providers, ad networks and call centre solutions.

Dynamic Yield collects and analyses user data, combining CRM, onsite behaviour, purchase history, product preferences to build one powerful dataset to deliver on-site personalisation. With the company’s new Audience Export Manager, all of this data can now be easily accessed in other marketing execution systems, which has substantial applications for enterprises.

Segment launches Visual Tagger

Customer data platform (CDP), Segment, has taken the wrappers off Visual Tagger, a point-and-click tool that allows users from non-technical backgrounds to easily collect data about how customers use their websites, without writing code. 

With Visual Tagger, Segment users can collect data about how customers are engaging with their website and content by simply clicking on the website elements they wish to track, and without the need for engineering support. Segment users can then route the data to over 300 best-in-class tools where it can be used to deliver valuable insights, inform better product decisions and power personalised customer experiences while respecting users’ privacy and preferences.

ScreenMeet launches ScreenMeet Live

ScreenMeet has launched ScreenMeet Live, a suite of browser-based, remote customer engagement tools helping retail and consumer services brands to transition their face-to-face, personalised shopping and customer support services to an online environment. 

ScreenMeet Live is a CRM-native integration that enables companies to recreate in-store experiences online. Launched directly from platforms like Salesforce and ServiceNow, it allows customer service agents to provide online shoppers with as close to an in-person experience as possible. Its ability to escalate from text to voice to video chat to co-browse/screen-share with no extra steps for the customer creates a seamless, enjoyable experience that keeps consumers satisfied and the sales pipeline full.
