Redwood City, Calif. (PRWEB) July 02, 2014
StrongView, a leading provider of email marketing and cross-channel marketing solutions for enterprises, today announced new contextual marketing capabilities for Message Studio, StrongView’s cross-channel Marketing Cloud. This latest release of Message Studio introduces many new and enhanced features for leveraging ad-hoc third-party data and executing highly contextual messages across any offline or online channel.
StrongView Message Studio set the bar for contextual marketing with last year’s announcement of InteractionStore, the industry’s first cloud-based customer insight solution capable of analyzing and acting on cross-channel customer interactions. With this recent update, Message Studio raises the bar even higher with the ability to automatically import any third-party event data (e.g. call center, Facebook, etc.) for analysis and targeting, and then push relevant messages out via any messaging channel of the marketer’s choosing.
In addition to expanded channel messaging, StrongView has added native push messaging capabilities within Message Studio’s drag-and-drop lifecycle marketing module. This enables enterprise marketers to create multistep, multichannel programs, delivering messages to mobile application and devices in coordination with other messaging types such as email, SMS and display.
“The next wave of innovation in marketing is being driven by the inevitable shift to contextual marketing, and StrongView is proud to be leading the way,” said Mark Parks, vice president of product at StrongView. “With its unparalleled capabilities for accessing, analyzing and acting on cross-channel data, this latest release of Message Studio underscores our commitment to providing email marketers with all the tools they need to effectively engage customers based on individuals’ current context and relationship to their brand.”
As customers interact with brands across multiple channels, marketers need to be able to capture that information and act on it in real time to remain relevant. Message Studio’s enhanced ability to leverage any ad-hoc channel for both targeting and messaging ensures that marketers are properly equipped to embrace the industry’s shift to contextual marketing.
