Krux Named A DMP Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Data Management Platforms, Q4 2015 Report
People Data, No Limits
What We Do
Krux helps more than 200 leading marketers and media companies deliver more relevant, thus more valuable, consumer experiences by capturing, unifying, and activating data signatures across every device (desktop, mobile, tablet, set-top) and every channel (display, social, search, video), in real time.
Every company is awash in people data from multiple sources, without the tools to harness and learn from it. Through our data management platform (DMP), Krux serves as the Intelligent Marketing HubTM that helps market leaders deliver breakthrough media, content, and commerce experiences that deepen consumer engagement, strengthen brands, and improve business performance.
Monthly, Krux interacts with more than 3 billion browsers and devices, supports more than 200 billion data collection events, processes more than 5 billion CRM records, and orchestrates more than 200 billion personalized consumer experiences.
Krux was founded in 2010 and is headquartered in San Francisco with ten offices across five continents. Krux clients include companies like Kellogg, ConAgra, Jet Blue, Mondelez, Time Warner, Meredith and Peugeot-PSA, with enterprises regularly achieving a 10x or higher ROI.
We believe that people data, responsibly collected and managed, will one day oxygenate advertising, content, commerce, collaboration, teaching, healing, inventing, building, negotiating and learning.
The Internet's first wave centered on the flow of bits, bytes, keywords, texts, email and digital content of all kinds. The next wave is about knowledge and learning, energized by intelligent, always-on services that make sense of the flood of people data flowing across IP-enabled devices.
Krux is building a pervasive power grid for the Internet that intelligently, safely connects data on a just-in-time basis to events, places and devices where it can drive more productive, valuable experiences for people.
