Glen Manchester, CEO at Thunderhead, commented, "We’re thrilled to be named as a Watchlist Winner for 2020. The Watchlist is a significant landscape review of companies making the most impact in customer-facing technologies, and we’re especially honoured this year to be a Winner with Distinction. As the market pioneer and leader in journey orchestration technology, we couldn’t agree more with Paul Greenberg’s statement that ‘CX and customer engagement are now standard to the thinking of companies’.

This requires a new generation of enterprise technology for which Thunderhead is the pioneering leader, which is why it’s so gratifying to recognized by the Watchlist with Distinction. Meanwhile, we’ve been busy developing the next level of AI-driven journey-based customer intelligence, and there will be more on that in the coming weeks."
