For Sports Authority, however, this approach to customer engagement is not some trendy or short-lived scheme. Nor has it just recently jumped onto the personalization bandwagon.

Rather, Sports Authority has remained genuinely committed to personalized customer engagement for a number of years, and it is a commitment that the brand continues to uphold.

This philosophy is one of the driving forces behind Sport Authority’s enduring relationship with Certona, a leading omni-channel and personalization platform that leverages behavioral profiling and predictive technology to increase customer engagement.
