Deliver the Best Journey for Every Customer with Journey Prioritization
Journey Prioritization enhances journey accuracy for marketers. With Journey Prioritization, marketers can assign priorities to different omnichannel journeys based on importance or relevance, ensuring that the most fitting journey takes precedence when customers qualify for multiple options. This prioritization mechanism has proved crucial in streamlining the customer experience.
The feature leverages advanced rule-based algorithms considering various factors, including eligibility, timeout durations, entry and exit details, and more. These algorithms ensure that each customer is directed to the most appropriate journey, maximizing the impact of marketing campaigns.
Journey Prioritization also effectively resolves conflicts and message overload. By strategically directing customers to the highest-priority journey, it eliminates the risk of conflicting messages and ensures that customers receive communication that is not only relevant but also consistent and coherent.
