“Mobile continues to be the dominant way consumers want to interact, so it’s important that businesses learn and adapt to customer preferences as quickly as possible. Our business customers are top performers in their industries, and have proven that fast iteration and intelligent A/B testing are key to staying competitive and relevant.
