  • Email is #1 source of risk in today's enterprise, yet also the #1 digital communication channel for businesses today. The United States Postal Service sends more than thirteen million emails per day, which makes their email channel and brand a high-profile target for criminal email cyberattacks. In this case study webinar, hear from Michael Ray, Inspector in Change of Revenue, Product & Cyber Security at the United States Postal Inspection Service, as he shares their story of how they implemented Agari to protect their brand and their customers against fraudulent attacks by securing their email channel.
  • For today’s digitally demanding customer, a rich, personalized customer
    experience is quite simply the cost of doing business. It is no longer a differentiator, but the standard. It is a journey defined by the customer, who is setting a new pace in an intensely personal race that, in their mind, only involves one runner. This leaves leading marketers to question where and how the next great evolution will happen…and whether their organizations are set up to leap ahead of the curve. Are they set up to thrive, or will they become irrelevant and eventually obsolete?

    Agility becomes a key denominator in this new marketing equation. With customer knowledge dispersed across systems of records, insights, interactions and an array of new sources of data, organizations need the business agility to be able to leverage insight from these disparate sources of information. This also requires the ability for the entire customer experience to be optimized—not just the deployment of campaigns—so that opportunities can be captured faster in order to beat out rivals also looking to connect through revitalized customer experience strategies.

    We will be joined by Pitney Bowes’ Jeff Goldberg, Product Marketing Lead for Customer Information Management, who will share an expert perspective around creation of a digital marketing record for increasing conversion rates and improving marketing communications overall.

    Full list of speakers are:

    Liz Miller, SVP, Marketing - CMO Council

    Personalization is critical to the success of your business model. Many of the most innovative and beloved companies in recent history -- think Facebook, Amazon, Google, Netflix, Pandora, Spotify and Hulu, just to name a few -- have transformed customer expectations and disrupted their individual industries. Now customers expect it. It increases clicks, open rates and conversions -- usually by pretty substantial margins. But -- how do you DO it?

    The process is different at every step of the customer journey and there's a lot that goes into personalization. What's more, there's a lot more ways to reach your customers than ever. Personalizing display ads is very different from personalizing emails or a mobile app experience. The data, content, and delivery mechanisms necessary to personalize those messages changes -- and so should your strategy.

    We're taking a holistic look at the art of personalization -- from customer expectations to ROI. We'll show you a new way of looking at identity -- from both the customer's behavior to predicting their behaviors.

    In this webinar, you'll:

    * Learn how to collect data that helps visualize the customer's journey
    * Get tips on one of the biggest challenges to increasing the ROI of marketing automation
    * Access the theory of identity enrichment
    * Gain insight into best practices for personalization in different channels
