As background, Empirical Path is one of the inaugural Google Tag Manager Certified Partners. "A Tag Management System (TMS) like Google’s free Tag Manager (GTM) puts marketers in control of marketing technology by easing deployment of analytics and advertising tags. GTM reduces reliance on development resources for websites and apps and speeds up the site by firing only needed tags through Rules or Triggers. Empirical Path’s Peter Howley will train marketers and technologists alike to migrate and enhance tags, share key user actions and traits across vendors, and save time and resources."
