This month marks the fifth anniversary of the Braze Intelligence Suite. It’s a major milestone, and also the perfect opportunity to take stock of this powerful element of the Braze platform. In that spirit, we spoke to Kevin Wang, Braze VP, Product, about the history of the Intelligence Suite, how it provides real value to brands, and the ways in which Braze is reassessing how we talk about the suite’s key components.
In a nutshell, there are emotional and functional attributes that contribute to what it takes for a brand experience to feel human to a consumer—the feelings your brand communications evoke, plus what your brand can do (the functional attributes) to drive that human perception. But how are brands achieving this?
For BlaBlaCar, their optimization process began with a clear goal. The company wanted to reach its customers as effectively as possible via email while also maximizing its email open rates. BlaBlaCar’s clarity about what metrics mattered for its business and where it wanted to see improvement made it easier for its marketers to determine where to focus (and, eventually, what to test).
At Braze, we strive to provide best-in-class technology that allows our customers to quickly and effectively use that data—and partnering with best-in-class data visualization platform Looker is a key part of that effort. Whether you need to improve time-to-action, drive data adoption across teams, or create actionable customer segments, the Looker and Braze platforms work seamlessly to identify and address your data needs.
