User analytics and engagement platform, MoEngage, has raised an undisclosed amount of investment from Anand Chandrasekaran, the Head of Platform & Product Partnerships for Messenger at Facebook. With this move, Anand will join the platform’s advisory panel.
Talking about his investment, Anand Chandrasekaran said, “MoEngage shows immense potential for growth, and has consistently proven itself to be a pioneering user engagement platform. I am also delighted to join the advisory board at a time when MoEngage has launched a path-breaking product like Sherpa, which gathers real-time insights from user actions across apps & websites, and automates the marketing communication with predictive analytics, reducing manual intervention from marketers.”
The platform claims that it currently analyses over 15 Bn events, delivers more than 5 Bn personalised interactions every month through multiple engagement channels, and will be launching more innovative products in the near future.
