There are very few tools within the UAE which are also compatible to the Arabic language and normally require manual inputs.
The main idea is to keep track of the company’s growth along with the constant change in the needs of the people. It’s a customer centric market today, conversations are already happening whether brands reach our to their target audience or no. The key is, are you listening to what they have to say?
