Hi! Welcome to our Blog!

This is where we (or more specifically, Jean-Guy!) chat about Tagga-related stuff like Data Consolidation, the Single Customer View and the Journey Framework. All very exciting stuff! A big shout out to the folks that make our blog happen –  Ian for his penmanship, marketing savviness and the rigorous research that goes into each piece, Linds for her edits and keeping an eye out for “Franglais”, and Roger, our Product Yoda, for his inimitable insights and guidance. But most importantly I’d like to thank our customers, new and existing, whose insights and advice invariably frame the topics… you guys are awesome!
