Nomination Title: Zaius: B2C CRM

Tell the story about this nominated product or service (up to 650 words). Describe its function, features, benefits, and sales to date:

In the past, customer loyalty was easier to earn. Today, with limitless ecommerce and in-store options for consumers, it’s harder than ever to earn a repeat purchase.

But it is possible. If you’re able to convert a second purchase, the likelihood of a customer making a third, fourth, and fifth purchase increases exponentially. Zaius is working to help solve the challenge of the repeat purchase for B2C brands.

Zaius is a CRM built for B2C marketers. The platform eliminates the gap between data and marketing systems by bringing customer data and campaign execution together in a single platform, empowering marketers to engineer the repeat purchase. With complete control of customer data for segmentation and analysis, marketers can better understand shopping behaviors and deliver truly personalized campaigns. Zaius helps brands:

-See every customer’s interactions across all channels and devices in a single profile.
-Understand why and how customers shop, and then turn that insight into action.
-Automate personalized campaigns across channels, at scale, and with speed.

Zaius gives B2C marketers all of the power of a customer data platform with a marketing automation solution. IT teams are not required. Marketers are empowered to not only analyze customer data, but use it to drive powerful personalized campaigns that are tailored to the interests of the buyer, with recommended products, upsell and cross-sell opportunities, and more.

Zaius experienced triple-digit growth in 2018, which is on top of 300% growth from 2017. Household names and growing brands like Dormify, Scotts Miracle-Gro, Sotheby’s, Just for Men, Anheuser-Busch InBev, Moda Operandi, and Tea Forte are generating dramatic ROI as a result of Zaius’ B2C CRM.
