Sapient Partners With Omniture To Integrate BridgeTrack® With Omniture Genesis™
#2 Digital Agency Will Leverage Omniture’s Online Business Optimization Platform
Omniture Genesis is a solution designed for business users to automate the integration of marketing applications into the Omniture Online Business Optimization platform. Using an intuitive “Plug and Play” interface, Omniture Genesis reduces the complexity of measuring online marketing campaigns and increases results by providing one standard view across all marketing initiatives.
“Sapient Interactive has built a unique digital marketing practice, providing both innovative technologies coupled with award-winning marketing campaigns designed by some of the foremost creative minds in the advertising and digital marketing industry,” said Sapient Chief Creative Officer Gaston Legorburu. “Omniture provides our clients with proven technologies and a team of experts that have helped companies succeed time and time again. As one of the world’s leading digital agencies, we look forward to our deepening relationship with Omniture to bring world-class online marketing solutions to the marketplace.”
By integrating BridgeTrack with Omniture’s Online Business Optimization Platform, Sapient will allow its clients to gain a single view into the full lifecycle of their campaigns, making it easier to measure and optimize their results across multiple marketing channels. Clients will gain the BridgeTrack capabilities of ad serving, landing page hosting, email and search optimization. In addition, Sapient will integrate Omniture SearchCenter™ into BridgeTrack to optimize search marketing campaigns for their clients.
BridgeTrack is a leading integrated digital marketing platform that enables real-time reporting and optimization across multiple media channels and formats, including email, display advertising, search and landing pages. This allows clients to measure the effectiveness of an online campaign in real-time to recalibrate and improve results immediately. In May, Sapient announced its intent to make BridgeTrack available to traditional and interactive advertising agencies as well as in-house media buyers and marketers.
“Working with Sapient, we will bring together all of the pieces to accelerate online business success in the marketplace,” said Josh James, CEO and co-founder, Omniture, Inc. “Our joint collaboration makes it possible for customers to more easily and effectively manage their end-to-end marketing lifecycle including strategy, creative, measurement and optimization.”
