About Traverse

Traverse is an identity resolution company helping marketers go beyond their active list, and engage in-market consumers within the email channel. It’s no secret that email is a highly effective communication tool for marketers to reach their active subscribers. Our aspirations for email are much bigger.

We enable marketers to reach people via email whom they currently have no means to do so, including:

  • Real-time identity resolution for anonymous website visitors
  • Former customers who are in-market again for their products
  • Identifying new customers who are in-market for products across the web

Founded by the same team that started and sold LeadSpend to Experian.
