Websites should not be a one size fits all
Both visitors and website owners will benefit from better relevance.
Our core technology is a big-data analytics platform that brings together click-stream data, Personal Identifiable Information and CRM data to produce deep analysis of visitors.
Well it is, BUT in plain English it means
CANDDi recognises and tells you who is on your website, not just how many people. It provides real time Visitor level data for automated interactions, but also can generate Aggregated data for more traditional analysis at a level not seen before.
Important point, CANDDi does not need extensive tagging on the pages and removes the pain to deal with zillions of tags.
CANDDi was founded at the end of 2009 and graduated from the first iteration of The Difference Engine in 2010.
