LONDON, Oct. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- StoneShot launches Insights beta for its users, empowering financial services marketers to integrate industry benchmarking into data-driven decisions.
"It is vital for financial services marketers to be equipped with benchmarking data enabling them to make business critical decisions," said Gavin John, StoneShot Founder and CEO. "We are thrilled to be able to offer this to our platform customers at no additional cost."
With the launch of the Insights beta inside the StoneShot App, clients are able to query real-time benchmarking data whenever they want. This means that clients can back up their strategic marketing efforts with industry data.
Some strategic questions that can be answered are:
