PROBAR encountered challenges in retaining customers and shaping effective marketing strategies. Their quest for a complete, all-encompassing customer view posed a considerable obstacle to developing a sturdy customer retention strategy. The fragmented nature of their tech stack introduced disconnections among their data streams, hindering their ability to personalize customer journeys and engage with each customer effectively, ultimately impacting subscriber growth.
