With these additions Search Discovery continues the expansion of their capacity to deliver business intelligence services that help organizations drive measurable business impact.

Search Discovery has positioned itself to assist clients looking to harness insights that drive continuous improvement of business outcomes, customer lifetime value, and brand loyalty through end-to-end optimization and personalization program design and support.

"One of the reasons I am excited to have joined Search Discovery is because the company truly understands the importance of data-driven optimization. We focus on helping brands optimize the relationships they have with their customers using the best tools available, from analytics to testing to voice of customer." Hall agrees.
