(PRWEB UK) 29 November 2012
Office supplies retailer Staples is deploying OpenTag (http://www.opentag.qubitproducts.com/), the enterprise Tag Management solution from QuBit (http://www.qubitproducts.com/), across its European websites. The deal will cover Staples’ web properties in the UK, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Germany and the Netherlands.
The implementation follows the announcement in May 2012 of Staples’ adoption of QuBit’s advanced big data customer analytics products. OpenTag will help Staples with the rapid roll-out and application of QuBit’s range of tools to Staples’ web properties.
More than 30 businesses a week are now signing up for OpenTag, taking advantage of its flexibility in offering managed and self-service options, its range of free and paid-for pricing options and open data standards.
Tag Management is fast-becoming a ‘must have’ technology on large business websites. In much the same way a marketer would use a Content Management System to control pages and content, developers can use Tag Management Systems (TMS) to control third party technologies (or tags) such as web analytics or marketing tags from one central location. Using tag management, site owners can increase site speeds, improve business agility, decrease marketing costs and enhance data and privacy management.
Graham Cooke, CEO of QuBit, said: “OpenTag is now becoming the solution of choice for enterprise Tag Management implementations. We are excited to work with Staples Europe in fulfilling their Tag Management requirements with our rich functionality and thorough support options."
Willem Vos, Head of eCommerce at Staples Europe, said: "QuBit’s Tag Management will make a significant difference to Staples websites across Europe by reducing our development time and enabling the quick roll-out of a range of technologies. This will enable us to continue making shopping Online with Staples easy for our customers, providing them with a more relevant shopping experience."
