Braze honors Overstock.com at Long-Term Relationships (LTR) Conference

SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Overstock.com Retail (NASDAQ:OSTK) was recently honored by Braze as an industry leader and innovator at the inaugural Torchie awards. The award, which was presented at the Long-Term Relationship conference on October 29, follows a series of announcements of Overstock’s cutting-edge, real-time personalization technology.

Recently, Overstock announced its development of a marketing technology infrastructure driven by machine learning that enables real-time personalization. By utilizing this technology between channels like email and Overstock’s retail site, the company can create a custom narrative for each customer that shows personalized content based on the user’s behavior and interactions with its platforms.

“Braze has been a wonderful partner as we’ve sought to expand our marketing technology and develop a cutting-edge personalization platform,” said JP Knab, Chief Marketing Officer for Overstock Retail. “I’m proud of the work our team has developed and look forward to the continued innovation to come. Congrats to the team on such an accomplishment and on the Torchie!”

Named after the Braze mascot, Torchie, the awards recognize brands and individuals who have gone above and beyond when it comes to leveraging technology and forward-looking strategies to better engage and serve their audiences. The Torchies were awarded at this year’s Long-Term Relationships conference on October 29-30, 2019, in New York City.
