Our story

2011, two computer science graduates, one big idea: Tomas Salfischberger and Koen Bos converge with three ex-Googlers to change the game for marketers.

The shared ambition? Empowering the marketer to engage in real, human conversation, which was lost in the explosion of fragmented channels.

Solution? Build the right technology to connect every touch point of the customer journey; and beyond, to reveal the entire journey and its data trails. It sounded so simple. Stop the noisy, one-way monologue; and start listening: who wants to see an advert for something they’ve already purchased?

From a tech startup to an enterprise Data Management Platform for the likes of Air France & BMW, the right technology has not only transformed the way marketers can build engaging dialogue with customers; it has prepared marketers to change their own game.

Our vision

We need to humanise digital marketing again; fix the broken customer journey. Better still, pave the way for a personalised customer experience, and fulfil the promise of big data. Your data is there. Our technology is there. The results are there.

The missing link? You, the marketer, connecting the data dots: speaking to the right person, in the right language, at the right time, in the right place.

A human conversation, again. Hello. How are you?

Our mission

Are you ready to connect? Let us join you on your mission to change the way you reach out to your customers – in a human way: that’s our mission too.

Our role in this? To empower you with the smartest marketing hub you need to tie all your tools and touchpoints together.

That’s just the beginning: a single customer view lets you personalise your conversation in real-time. Simply plug in our Data Management Platform (DMP). See the whole picture; understand your customers. Enough of the same message, at the same time, on every channel.

Become relevant, bring back human, delight your customers, and see your results skyrocket.
