IBM Interact, formerly Unica Interact, helps marketers enhance customer experiences by delivering relevant and personalized messages where and when the customer engages your brand. This powerful real-time interaction management solution uses current behavior, historical profile data, marketer defined rules and logic, and cognitive self-learning to provide the optimal communication during customer interactions. Marketers can achieve more meaningful customer interactions by orchestrating and automating personalized, omni-channel marketing strategies across inbound touchpoints, including websites, mobile, call centers and kiosks.
CLEARGOALS is one North America’s leading consulting firms for IBM Interact. We have worked closely with IBM on some of the largest implementations of IBM Interact in North America.
IBM Interact uses powerful, behavioral targeting analytics and marketer-defined business logic to deliver the optimal marketing message in each case:
- Easily define strategies for interacting with customers and prospects, and modify and understand the impact of changes with highly manageable, real-time “decisioning” logic.
- Build insight over time and help determine the best offer or message to present to customers and prospects through self-learning and arbitration.
- Provide an uncomplicated and intuitive user experience to each person involved in the inbound marketing process with role-based user interfaces (UIs): separate user interfaces for marketers, technical analysts and operational managers of interactive channels.
