Sunnyvale, CA — July 22, 2021 — Evergent, the CRM innovator providing flexible tools for direct-to-consumer businesses, today announced a partnership with Struum, the new credit-based subscription streaming service created by senior-level Disney and Discovery executives. The agreement will make Evergent’s agile monetization and customer management tools available across Struum’s subscription-based platform, which enables users to sample content from dozens of participating streaming services from around the globe.
