“Customers who are early adopters of predictive marketing analytics are strongly outperforming their peers, and that’s why we’re continuing to experience such high demand for our platform,” said Omer Artun, CEO of AgilOne. “On average, we’ve seen our customers triple their margins, grow overall revenues by 30 percent, retain 20 percent more customers, cut email unsubscribe rates in half and grow email revenues by 125 percent. With returns like these, it’s clear why predictive marketing is a priority.”
In Q4 2013, AgilOne brought on several new customers including Donald J Pliner, JJ Buckley Fine Wines, Lilly Pulitzer, Phiten USA, 100% Pure and Rebecca Minkoff LLC.
In Q4 2013, AgilOne welcomed additional new partners like The O Group and PFSweb, Inc. in the U.S. to provide expertise and guidance on the AgilOne platform. The company also brought on Cinder in Australia and New Zealand to expand its reach in the Asia Pacific region.
AgilOne makes it easy for marketers to use customer insights in everyday campaigns through integrations with existing marketing applications. Some of the integrations and technology partnerships to highlight from Q4 2013 include:
- Marketing and email Automation – AgilOne brought on new marketing automation and Email technology partners including Bronto Software, Inc., Experian Marketing Services, MailChimp, and Silverpop.
- Commerce Platform - AgilOne also joined forces with Demandware to help customers leverage the power of predictive analytics by automating the capture of consumer and transaction data from ecommerce web sites.
- Tag Management Services – AgilOne created new integrations with tag management services, TagMan and Ensighten.

In December 2013 we conducted a survey of 70 mid-market retailers and eCommerce executives that gave us feedback about their current and planned use of big data and predictive marketing analytics. Our survey findings indicate that the big data marketing market will expand by as much as 50% in 2014.”
