Amperity Emerges from Stealth, Offers Global Brands a Unified View of the Customer to Drive Top Line Growth

Leading Intelligent Customer Data Platform demonstrates how brands can supercharge customer initiatives with complete, actionable data

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Sep 14, 2017) - Amperity, the world's only Intelligent Customer Data Platform, today formally unveiled its solution to help enterprises unify and activate customer data from all of a brand's disparate data sources. Now, marketers, analysts and IT teams can gain direct and timely access to their unified customer data, empowering them to produce individualized marketing, build enduring customer loyalty and deliver on their innovative customer visions to drive top line growth. The product will be unveiled in Seattle today at the Future of Consumer Marketing event, with consumer marketing executives from Fortune 500 companies such as Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy, Alaska Airlines, Nordstrom, TGI Friday's, Kendra Scott, Starbucks and GAP Inc., among others, speaking about how they see complete and usable customer data shaping the future of consumer marketing.

Consumer demand for quality, personalized interactions with brands is at an all time peak. But only 13 percent of companies deploy truly customer-specific individual messages today (BCG). Internet-first companies like Amazon are responsible for setting these high expectations, and they've also been at the forefront in leveraging the power of data to stay competitive. However, the journey hasn't been easy for non-internet-first companies. While companies now have more data than ever at their fingertips, they lack the technologies and the capabilities to unlock its true value. They are left dealing with data that is inaccessible, inaccurate, and inconsistent. This ultimately limits brands' ability to acquire new customers, deepen existing customer relationships, and drive top line revenue growth.

Many companies have tried to solve pieces of this problem, and while they had the right intentions, they ultimately failed and were unable to scale and provide a truly accurate, complete view of a customer. Amperity has solved what others could not by getting at the core of the problem and using advanced machine learning and a large-scale, distributed data infrastructure to rapidly deliver complete and actionable customer data. "The industry has been chasing this idea of a '360 degree view of the customer' since I first started working in this field more than 10 years ago, but has yet to deliver a solution that can perform at scale to help marketers unify and understand their data in context," said Kabir Shahani, CEO and Co-founder of Amperity. "It's been an elusive goal for many of us on the team for a long time; it's hard to describe what a thrill it's been to watch the team bring a product to life that really does work, and work very well. Amperity is like the connective tissue for a brand's customer data, providing the one place within an organization that has a precise, timely & complete view of the customer and enabling our users to deliver a better customer experience that drives loyalty & increased revenue."

The team is already helping several of the world's most loved brands unlock insights from their customer data and realize the full potential of their marketing opportunities. For example, Amperity helped a luxury brand launch personalized, omni-channel holiday campaigns based on longitudinal customer behaviors, increasing campaign revenue by 13% over the previous year. Amperity also helped a leading airline drive a 198% increase year-over-year in conversion rate for their pre-trip email campaign by unifying customer data and fueling personalized omni-channel marketing.

"Every brand wants to have a more personal relationship with their customers, but they often have data in disparate locations and systems," said Matt McIlwain, Managing Director, Madrona Venture Group and Amperity board member. "Amperity combines modern machine learning and cloud technology to create compelling customer data management solutions that help the world's leading brands serve those customers better."
