The company

They enable brands to take control over the most volatile part of the customer experience —the post-purchase— so those brands increase brand loyalty and save support costs.

They gather accurate, accessible, and real-time information on customers' orders with insights into the brands' customers’ experience by market, centralized data.

  • Generate revenue
    • They leverage every touchpoint of the delivery experience. All post-purchase notifications have higher open and click rates than any other customer experience communication. It's an untapped lever for growth that sets the brands apart, especially in the event of an incident.
  • Brand
    • They communicate in a visually compelling and timely manner that serves the brand identity.
  • Customer interactions
    • They select what is sent, how, and when: personalized and detailed communication, proactive notifications, on-demand information, and self-resolution.
  • Save costs
    • They cut time spent resolving typical delivery problems. They alleviate the burden on the brands' Customer Service to focus on where it brings the most value.
  • Customer experience
    • They drive the experience proactively by making data-driven decisions. They produce new, rich data sets for merchants to provide better customer service when any issues may arise, a win-win for both the consumer and merchant.

They raised over 7 million funds to accelerate their international development (Europe & USA). Based in New York and Paris, they have over 50 employees.

In 2022, they were acquired by Global Blue to enrich its post-purchase offering, helping retailers extend their customer journey.
