At Appuri, we love data and we’re passionate about customers – both ours and yours. We created this company because the promise of applying Big Data and Data Science to deliver intelligent customer interactions is enormous. The problem is – today only a handful of the largest organizations on the planet have the resources to realize that promise. We believe the time has come to equip companies of any size to become data-driven and deliver smart, scalable experiences that delight their customers and forge stronger businesses.
