“Today’s consumers expect uninterrupted and fully connected experiences when they interact with a brand. To be successful today you have to authentically connect with your customer’s emotions while removing friction from their lives,” says Jeremy Duimstra, CEO and Co-Founder at MJD Interactive. “Connected experiences open up the ability for brands to tell stories that resonate in a deeply moving way, while the technology platforms we build make their lives exponentially easier.”

Experiences need to be fully personalized and service is driven with no frontiers between physical and digital,” says Olivier Padiou, Group Chief Operating Officer at Valtech, “businesses need to reimagine the customer experiences they provide. It can no longer simply be about pricing, transactions, and inventory; online has already proven it can handle those things better.”

We believe that together the depth of our global capabilities and experience will allow our mutual clients to reinvent and transform their customer experiences,” says Michael Maginnis, President, and Co-Founder at MJD Interactive.
