Braze is Named a Leader in Cross-Channel Campaign Management
Over the past year and a half, brands across industries have had to rethink what customer engagement means—increasingly turning to and relying on cross-channel campaign management to meet their customers wherever they are in the moments that matter the most.
Accelerating digital adoption isn't easy, but when organizations are able to make the shift from single-channel to cross-channel engagement, they can create customer-centric campaigns that drive business results, purchases per user, retention, and lifetime value (LTV). And that's something we're passionate about, and something we help brands of all sizes—from household names like Pizza Hut and Canva to small businesses, startups, and mid-size companies—accomplish, by empowering them to orchestrate their messaging and experiences across channels and deliver 1:1 personalized experiences.
That's why it's an honor to be named a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Cross-Channel Campaign Management (Independent Platforms), Q3 2021. As part of this selection process, Forrester evaluated 13 cross-channel campaign management solutions across 30 key criteria. Braze received the highest scores in two of the report's three main categories:
Strategy: In the report, Forrester notes that Braze "impresses with its vision to forge human connections between customers and brands."
Market presence: “Braze has well more than 100 customers in each of a diverse range of vertical sectors, including retail and e-commerce, health and lifestyle, financial services, telecommunications, media, and publishing… it has an established presence in all major geographies, and 15% of its customers are enterprises," the Forrester report states.
Each year, more brands trust Braze to engage with their customers, and we believe this report demonstrates that Braze is a visionary leader in the space.

Partner ecosystem:Our partnership ecosystem includes 50+ technology partnership integrations, the world's leading solutions partners, and our new independent software vendor program.
Earning this recognition as a Leader in cross-channel campaign management comes on the heels of Braze being selected as a Leader in the "The Forrester Wave™: Mobile Engagement Automation, Q3 2020," earning the highest scores in both the report's Current Offering and Strategy (tied) categories.
