Very extraordinary technology: the personalization of the customer experience through data from Intelligence

Established in 1975, today RTL 102.5 is the leading Italian radio station, with almost 8 million listeners each day. Over the last few years, it has evolved, becoming a 360-degree multimedia content supplier, and choosing radiovision as an editorial format – the only Italian radio broadcaster to do so. In this way, RTL’s content, transmitted 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, can be enjoyed via radio, television, the web, and on any other platform that is currently known. Social networks and digital touch points, through which the brand interacts with people, have been added to news and music content. Indeed, RTL is, and always has been, the radio station that is close to the people. This is where the famous slogan "Very Normal People" comes from.

Thanks to THRON the Intelligent DAM, we have managed to increase online retention by 620%.
