Basis is constantly improving. We've recently released:
Related Audiences give you the scale and performance needed to meet a campaign's KPI, and provide a good alternative to choosing third-party segments based on intuition or by chance. Check out more here.

Campaign Creation is even easier! When “Creating campaigns from existing,” you can now choose to include groups and tactics and also carry over any optimizations. More information is available here.
Labels for Basis Assistant allow you to add one or many labels, similar to how you add a #hashtag to a social media post. Labels then become filters users can summarize info by, when exporting logs, allowing you to gain insight. Learn more about it here.
