“Zaius is more than an ESP; it helps us make smarter business decisions. As a data-driven organization, we love having the ability to drill down into an individual customer profile, see all of their touchpoints across devices, and understand which touchpoint led to a sale.

I think about my idea and technology will disseminate that effectively.”
