Barcelona, SPAIN, New York, US(24 May 2017)
NPAW (NICE PEOPLE AT WORK), the most advanced, holistic big data and business intelligence (BI) company for online media services, has partnered with Kaltura, the leading video technology provider, to provide shared clients with the possibility to add NPAW’s BI solution, YOUBORA Infinity, that measures performance among segmented populations of users, to Kaltura’s TV Platform. The objective behind this collaboration is to strengthen ties between online video providers and business intelligence, providing visibility into end-users’ consumption behavior.
Joint customers benefit from YOUBORA Infinity and its SmartUsers module, which generates insights on user behaviour. These insights are seamlessly integrated into the Kaltura TV Platform - a platform that enables content providers to manage their content, business modules, users, and devices through to the user experience.
SmartUsers was specifically designed to harness the power of big data for customer behavior purposes. Through the integration with Kaltura, the module allows customers to use its smart segmentation of users – based on user behaviour across the platform - to engage directly with end-users via targeted campaigns, coupons, discounts and personalized content. Customers gain deep visibility into their end-users behavior, life cycle, as well as to precisely segment their audience. Extremely advanced segmentation is achieved through a vast amount of demographic, geographic, devices, quality and even behavioral parameters - returning users, level of activity, or even segmentation based on churn prediction algorithms. Customers can also leverage this data and segmentation to track group responses to different customer care strategies, and receive full visibility into users’ churn data, and track churn prediction trend lines using the SmartUsers dashboards. Content providers are able to define specific action plans that serve their business goals by tracking the impact of voucher releases, content recommendation engine tests or changes in UI.
“Here at NPAW, we have developed the most accurate, ahead of the curve, real-time segmentation tool. The journey that we embarked on alongside Kaltura is living proof of how powerful YOUBORA-module SmartUsers is,” says Sergi Vergés, COO at NPAW.
“Connecting NPAW’s deep intelligence with our TV Platform opens up great opportunities for our customers and helps them make data-driven decisions, in order to continue to move forward towards building loyal and satisfied audiences.” said Dr. Shay David, Kaltura Co-Founder and General Manager of the Media and Telecom Business Unit.
