Once customers have given their consent, business owners use SmartTarget’s automated campaign tools and leverage those insights to create targeted emails, surveys, and coupons, with an aim to help increase customer loyalty, drive deeper connections and boost store revenues. SmartTarget was developed in collaboration with Aislelabs using its Aislelabs Connect platform. Shaw Business is the first service provider in Canada to make the product available to its customers.
