Our next presenter is SelfScore, with its “scoring as a service” and “data as a service” approach to measuring consumers in better ways using more information.
“SelfScore.com is a consumer analytics service that uses a proprietary algorithm to combine online profiles, phone, and sensor data, psychometric questions, and 360 degree feedback from one’s network to provide insights to users and contextual information to businesses. We believe that with new advances in the social web and smartphones, it is now possible to attain a complete, timely and accurate picture of consumer behavior that benefits both consumers and businesses.”
