Acquia CDP


Monetate is a personalization software for consumer-facing brands.

By stitching, cleansing, and deduping data across all digital and offline channels into a single customer view, and applying AI-driven insights to that profile, Customer Data Platform (CDP) creates a complete system of record that can feed into Monetate’s intelligent personalization engine. Leveraging CDP’s data, Monetate can more deeply segment customers for hyper-personalized experiences in order to increase customer delight and maximize lifetime value.

Benefits of integration with Monetate:

  • Deeper personalization based on a comprehensive omni-channel profile

  • Personalization that is orchestrated across Web and non-Web experiences. For example, personalized messaging that is consistent across web, email, social, advertising, in-store experiences, and call center.

  • Personalization based on machine learning. For example, targeting based on customers who are likely to buy, who are likely to be high value customers, and who are likely to churn.
