On the seventh anniversary of Digital Scientists, I wanted to share some of our company news with you.
We’re launching ContextualSM – A solution for delivering an individualized, location-specific, mobile retail experience. And selling stuff, of course.
We’ve been working on location-based applications for over three years now, starting with our work on Gables Residential and Lamar’s RoadNinja. Over the past year, we’ve continued our work in location-focused search – and have decided to bring together our learning and apply the latest messaging tools to create...
Where do buyers from the best retailers find products to sell in-store and online? AmericasMart - one of the world's largest permanent wholesale trade centers, with over 7 million square feet of space.
AmericasMart approached Digital Scientists to transform its buyer experience in conjunction with the launch of high speed wifi throughout their campus.
The answer came in the form of a transformed digital buyer experience - from desktop to on-campus to mobile devices.
What’s so hard about personalized email?
Behavior driven personalization of email (and just about anything else, like in-app notifications or text messages) isn’t easy for most applications today. In most cases, the activity related data is locked away in an analytics application, while the actual content is located in a content management system or content repository.

We are all in love . . . with our phones. And where our love and attention goes, advertising usually follows.
Though, strangely, display advertising on our beloved phones just doesn’t seem to be taking off.

The overwhelming tendency is to pick up the plan from last year and tinker. 2013 doesn’t...
I've started a blog at http://ThomasAKlein.com for me to write exclusively on the subject of Customer Engagement Strategy. Just in case you were wondering, TomKlein.com was taken, so don't start calling me Thomas or think that I've gone highbrow or something.
So, what's this new blog about?
