It then allows companies to communicate with specific groups of consumers to receive additional direct response, or to deliver personalized messaging or value at scale, further enriching the brand-customer connection..

ODP Managing Director Ken Sonenclar commented: “Making sense of consumer behavior is critical to insightful and efficient marketing. Epicenter Experience, through The People Platform and its AI-enhanced location technology, puts unmatched power in the hands of brands to understand and communicate with current and potential customers. In tandem with other tools in the Stagwell Marketing Cloud, marketers will now enjoy unprecedented access and knowledge of consumers on the go.”
