Authintic builds social recommendation engines for marketers powered by opt-in data.

Authintic is an analytics technology company building social recommendation engines for marketers. The technology delivers recommendations powered by social data with consumer permission resulting in higher conversions, loyalty and retention.

Market Need

Personalized, one-to-one marketing drives higher conversions than interruptive mass advertising. To fuel this, brands strive to access the rich behavioural data found in social media from millions of Facebook fans and Twitter followers, but they lack the ability to properly collect and read the data. Authintic fills this gap using permission marketing to bridge the data out of social media, utilizing data scientists to transform the data so it’s usable, and then analytics technology to deliver personalized, relevant recommendations to each fan.
