Your website requires that your customers make an effort to visit it and then search for needed information. Viassary proactively delivers relevant communications and applications to your customers at the most opportune time, whether they are online or offline. This requires absolutely no action on the part of your customers. In addition, your customers will not receive irrelevant or excessive information, as you establish the rules to ensure the right information gets to the right customer at the right time to drive interaction and profitability.

These vehicles primarily target customers based on registration or customer provided information. In addition to customer provided information, Viassary also acts upon customer behaviors and digital environment conditions through our Intelligent Delivery solutions.
