Oslo, Norway - 15 July 2019 - Cxense ASA (OSE: CXENSE), the AI-powered data management and intelligent personalization company that drives revenue for publishers and brands, today announces that Dow Jones & Company, Inc. (Dow Jones), a global leader in news and business intelligence and owner of The Wall Street Journal, has renewed its agreement with Cxense for two years with an option to extend for a third year. Since the start of the partnership with Cxense in 2013, Dow Jones has successfully leveraged Cxense technology and know-how to grow digital revenue for its flagship publication, The Wall Street Journal. Over the past years, Dow Jones, a pioneer in applying a data- and reader-led approach to subscription growth, and Cxense have strengthened their partnership and reached several important milestones. As early as 2016, The Wall Street Journal and Cxense were among the first to implement a machine learning-powered dynamic paywall. A dynamic paywall works by determining automatically and in real time, when, why and how a reader is asked to pay based on the information a publisher has on that reader. This enabled The Wall Street Journal to prove the value of their journalism to more potential subscribers and increase conversions significantly. In addition, a propensity model was introduced that predicts with up to 90% accuracy whether a reader will subscribe. These innovative approaches have since been incorporated into Conversion Engine, Cxense's all-in-one solution for dynamic paywalls and personalized customer journeys, and have been adopted by other leading publishers across the globe. Speaking about the partnership, Christian Printzell Halvorsen, CEO of Cxense said: 'In light of Dow Jones' recent announcement that The Wall Street Journal has reached a record high of almost 1.8 million digital subscribers, today's renewal confirms the trust in the partnership as well as in Cxense technology and know-how. We are proud to work with the Dow Jones team to enable them to provide their readers with personalised access to great journalism at each stage of the customer journey and take their subscription business to new heights.'
