New features added to Sage AI by Braze include:

  • Enhance Relevant Experiences and Increase Purchase Rates with Personalized Recommendations: Expanded AI Item Recommendation capabilities allow brands to create additional recommendation models with more frequent item updates. This helps deliver personalized item suggestions such as products, services, experiences, and offers tailored to each individual’s preferences. By leveraging AI to match customers with the items most likely to resonate with them, brands can create meaningful experiences, build stronger connections, boost brand equity, and drive greater conversions and revenue growth. AI Item Recommendations seamlessly integrate into campaigns on any Braze channel and eliminate the need for complex setups, technical resources, or additional integrations.
  • Personalize Every Touchpoint and Maximize Revenue with Personalized Paths: Personalized Paths, a new feature marketers can use in Braze Canvas, to scale sophisticated personalization by seamlessly matching each customer with the most relevant message, copy, creative, channel, and offer. Personalized Paths feature experiments, automates, and shares the message variant each individual is more likely to prefer at any step in the journey, driving deeper engagement and creating more personalized and creative experiences for each customer.
  • Strengthen Brand Equity and Improve Time to Value with Tone Control: Tone Control generative functionality, powered by OpenAI GPT-4 Turbo, allows marketers to dictate AI-generated copy tones directly within the AI Copywriting Assistant. This feature inspires content creation, fosters creativity, and ensures authentic customer experiences that can be generated quickly and inserted on any channel. Combined with testing and optimization, brands can compare tones, and swiftly share resonant messages.
  • Addressing Email Metric Reliability with Estimated Real Open Rate: Estimated Real Open Rate addresses Apple’s Mail Privacy Protection (MPP) challenges, offering marketers reliable insights. Braze introduces a new metric in its Email Campaign Performance analytics, utilizing advanced analytical modeling for accurate email open rates, guiding effective insights and fostering creative experiences.
