Beaverton, OR (PRWEB) November 29, 2011
Act-On Software, provider of the fastest growing marketing automation platform for the Fortune 5,000,000, today announced that the company has exceeded the 500th customer mark in record time - under two years. This milestone comes just after Act-On announced a record quarter, Q3’11, in which the company experienced 400 percent year-over-year growth and added 164 new customers.
Fleet One, Act-On’s 500th customer, offers fuel and maintenance purchasing controls, detailed reporting, online account management and many additional money-saving services. Fleet One is a division of Fleet One Holdings LLC, a portfolio company of LLR Partners and FTV Capital.
“We are excited to join the Act-On family, and we look forward to partnering with Act-On to drive our marketing initiative to the next level,” said Stacey Bright, Vice President of Marketing, Fleet One. “As marketers, we must constantly evolve our strategies to reach potential customers, and Act-On offered the innovative approach and product line that Fleet One needed.”
“Within a dramatically short time, Act-On has succeeded in redefining the market by enabling small marketing teams (SMTs) to take control of their marketing programs in a way no technology has allowed before,” said Raghu Raghavan, founder and CEO of Act-On Software. “Our fantastic adoption rates continue to validate that SMTs have been asking for an integrated platform that is powerful and easy-to-use, and Act-On provides just that. We welcome FleetOne to the Act-On family and look forward to being a part of their significant growth as they are of ours.”
Companies of all sizes turn to Act-On to execute multi-channel, online marketing campaigns by automating critical marketing tasks and providing rich analytics and reports in real-time. Act-On customers include: Motorola, Progressive, IBM, AssociatedBank, InsideSales.com, and Liberty Tax Services.
Each of Act-On’s 500 customers has a unique success story, including long-time customer, HA Advantage a web-based technology company that matches shipments with carriers to move freight most efficiently. “From the beginning it’s been clear that Act-On is a partner in our success; they listen to us and continue to focus on improving their already best-in-class platform,” said Aaron Bolshaw, director of marketing and inside sales, HA Advantage. “Ultimately, my job is to get people to raise their hands, and with Act-On I’m able to effectively do this.”
To celebrate this milestone, Act-On will provide 500 Thanksgiving meals to those in need through the Blanchett House of Hospitality in Portland Oregon and an additional 500 meals in honor of each of the first 500 customers. Fleet One has generously agreed to match Act-On's donation so the two companies will be providing a total of 2000 meals to people in need during this holiday season. Started in 1938, The Blanchett House of Hospitality has been dedicated to providing meals to those individuals who, for whatever reason are unable to provide for themselves.
