For our valued customers or those who've opted in to receive communications from us, expect to hear more about company news, new product launches, or exclusive offers and events via email or text. Here's a brief illustration of how this process unfolds. What?
We launch a new feature to optimise eCommerce checkouts and payments, made available to select customers initially.
We were able to identify a group of customers who we knew were interested in Payment optimisation. Using this information we were able to contact those people with our new proposal using emails to communicate our offer.
Our customers were able to get access to the new features as soon as they were launched thereby allowing earlier adoption and feedback. Truly a win-win situation.
