We’ve recently announced the new features of the Personalization product in this blog post. You can read about it here! At this time, we are releasing a limited Beta.
Additionally, in the coming weeks we will be releasing the recorded demo from Opticon 2015. If you haven’t seen this yet, it’s worth checking out. I’ll post the link to this thread once it’s been released. The demo on an mock E-commerce website will give you and the community insights into the full functionality of this powerful product! Stay tuned!
