Seattle, WA (PRWEB) August 20, 2007
WhatCounts, Inc., a leader in comprehensive e-communication programs, today announced an alliance with Omniture, a leading provider of online business optimization software. As a new Omniture Genesis partner, WhatCounts will be able to provide customers with an application that easily integrates within Omniture's Online Business Optimization Platform.
Omniture Genesis is a solution created for business users to automate the integration of marketing applications including the WhatCounts email marketing platform, the e-Communications Suite 6.0, into the Omniture Online Business Optimization Platform. Using an intuitive "Plug and Play" interface, Omniture Genesis reduces the complexity of measuring online marketing campaigns and increases results by providing one standard view across all marketing initiatives.
The announcement of the strategic relationship between WhatCounts and Omniture solidifies WhatCounts' business objective of enhancing the customer experience and forging partnerships that will provide a dynamic solution for enterprise-level marketers. As part of the partner strategy, the Omniture relationship will be one of a number of alliances WhatCounts is building to further develop its solution by incorporating additional online marketing tools that benefit customers.
"WhatCounts is an important Omniture partner for helping online marketers build brand loyalty," said John Mellor, senior vice president, business development and corporate strategy at Omniture. "Combining the capabilities of WhatCounts e-Communications Suite with Omniture's Online Business Optimization Platform will help companies more efficiently engage customers and create online conversions with their most important audiences."
"We are excited about the precise level of personalization that integration with the Omniture Genesis platform will bring to our shared customers," said Simon Mutlu, vice president of sales and service for WhatCounts. "It is a fact that refined segmentation can exponentially augment email marketing ROI, but by integrating Web analytics data with loyalty marketing programs, an additional increase in click-through rates and conversions is earned. Jupiter Research studies have shown that consumers want more relevance in the permission-based messages they receive. So, this partnership is a win-win for marketers who leverage both Omniture's SiteCatalyst and the WhatCounts e-Communications Suite and the customers they serve."
