Industry Specific Use Cases

When evaluating if a Marketing Automation investment will yield return and when choosing among the thousands of softwares available, defining use cases is a central part of the process. As it helps us a) identify new opportunities b) estimate turnover from activations c) identify what investment is needed to turn the vision into reality.
