“The reality is that this is very important, basically because the use of programs focused on technology helps us to boost all the technology with the brands, to make communication processes more efficient and to work thoroughly on the personalization of the user experience. So, the fact that technology today is natively integrated with VTEX allows and accelerates the efficiency of the processes internally for each of the brands and above.
