Banish mistargeted promotions with artificial intelligence that understands customer intent.
Junction AI automates loyalty marketing for travel and retail companies so marketers can individually engage customers with the right offer at the right time.
Our AI automatically matches offers, experiences, events, attractions, perks and amenities individually to each and every customer in newsletters, websites and apps.
We make it possible and affordable to understand and deliver the right offer to the right customer at the right time.
Junction AI is based on the experiences of launching a local discovery app called Instant Local. InstantLocal was a B2B2C app, that provided locals an image based guide on offers, events, products and services that were nearest/newest.
The app and our company was featured in CultureMap Dallas as a “startup to watch right now“
But it didn’t solve the information overload problem and just gave marketers even more work.
We knew we had to transform how personalized marketing worked. Marketers didn’t need more data and another channel to manage.
They need a tool to understand their all their existing data and then do something with it!
In July 2017 we developed an AI that analyzed marketers data to understand buying intent and how this is driven by location, context, behavior, and values.
We were successful in becoming 1 of 10 finalists in the Marriott, Accenture Interactive and 1776 Travel Experiences Incubator in August 2017 on our technical proof of concept.
To help marketers do something with all this data we built an “AI as a service” solution that integrates with existing customer channels and backend systems.
This eliminates the need for expensive new IT projects and for companies to build their own teams of AI engineers, data scientists and AI infrastructure!
And provides companies an AI capability they can quickly and easily implement for immediate results.
