Challenges and Potential Solutions with regards to Mobility
During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Reinventing Real-World Personalization- Anagog is helping brands to quickly understand the 'New Normal' of their consumers
The problem: The COVID-19 pandemic is quickly changing people’s behavior. Each individual reacts differently and will emerge out of the pandemic with new behavior and lifestyle, creating a 'new normal'. Brands that do not react quickly will lose the loyalty of their customers.
Solution: Anagog allows brands to understand each customer's unique needs in real-time and offer them what they need, exactly when and where they need it. We apply artificial intelligence over the phone sensors to translate them quickly into insightful persona (micro-segments) and context (micro-moments). We offer the best privacy mechanism by allowing the phone to call for relevant services and offers without disclosing any personal data of the user.
With Anagog, brands can empower their mobile apps to become powerful artificial intelligence engines that will understand the 'new normal' of customers and will allow them to address them accordingly.
With a fraction of the cost of other cloud-based solutions, Anagog enables better engagement with consumers by understanding them based on their real-world activities and while protecting their privacy like no other system offers today.
