NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – March 26, 2018 – Accelerize (OTCQB: ACLZ) (OTCBB: ACLZ) and its digital marketing software division CAKE today announced that an industry-leading, international financial institution has selected Journey by CAKE. Built on CAKE’s Marketing Intelligence platform, Journey is a cloud-based enterprise solution that collects and analyzes customer journey data using multi-touch attribution for marketing campaign optimization. The new Journey client is featured in an S&P Global listing of the top 23 banks across the world with more than $1 trillion in assets. The move to Journey provides the company with an extended view into vital customer interactions, equipping it with the marketing intelligence required to boost campaign performance and return on advertising spend.
The financial services provider supports personal and corporate clients in Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia. To continue serving its clients worldwide at a superior level, the company plans to leverage Journey for tracking and analyzing its paid media, social and affiliate campaigns. The solution will provide the organization with data collection, managed services and real-time reporting for marketing activities related to current accounts, applications for new customers and mobile apps.
It’s clear that the financial sector understands the need for data-driven marketing and is making it a priority. According to a CMO.com survey, improving data analysis capabilities is considered a key element in better understanding customer experience requirements by 99% of respondents and is ‘very important’ for 72%. So, it’s no surprise that more than half (53%) of respondents said they are increasing their investment in marketing analytics.
“In the modern marketing landscape, high-performing financial organizations need to know how to link and analyze the massive amount of marketing data together into a cohesive narrative – the customer journey,” said Santi Pierini, CAKE President and Chief Operating Officer of Accelerize. “This will provide insights into what messages, campaigns and channels work best at each touchpoint in the client’s path and where marketing dollars should be concentrated for maximum impact. Our ability to deliver an extended view of the customer journey brings immediate value to the financial institution’s bottom line and is a competitive advantage.
