It also helps identify trends and gaps beyond just marketing, enabling organizations to evaluate all commercial levers to pivot growth strategies.

It blends multiple analytical approaches to create a single source of truth to predict future behavior, so brands can optimize plans and investments.

It uses a multidimensional structure which includes customer cohorts and is flexible based on brands' unique business objectives to provide both strategic and tactical insights.
