SDL Helps Brands Turn Social Media Followers into Promoters 
EngageSciences partnership to monetize social CRM data for global
brands 
MAIDENHEAD, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 04/12/13 -- Customers
who engage with companies over social media spend more money with
those companies and demonstrate a deeper emotional commitment. As
brands continue to work hard to convert fans into advocates, SDL
(LSE:SDL) announced a partnership with EngageSciences, a social
marketing activation platform, to provide their customers greater
ability to activate and engage their social media followers.  
Combining the EngageSciences platform with the SDL Intelligent
Marketing Suite gives marketers a powerful tool set to better analyze
the impact of social media on customer experiences. Integrating
individual interactions from social channels into SDL's
high-performance database improves the targeting and segmentation
ability for multichannel campaigns.  
As a result of this partnership, SDL Intelligent Marketing Suite
customers will be able to create customized social promotions to: 


 
--  Attract and engage fans across social networks 
--  Create ongoing advocacy and loyalty programs 
--  Publish the best of the social web to company websites 
--  View deep analytics on social reach and individual fan profiles 
--  Create segments of customers based on their activity on social channels 
--  Gain access to real-time social reporting and analytics

 
"Marketers need to move beyond the discovery phase and start using
technology to motivate customers based on their preferred use of each
channel," said Bob Hale, CEO of SDL Campaign Management & Analytics
division. "Incorporating data from social channels into the SDL
Intelligent Marketing Suite will make it easier for marketers to have
the intelligence necessary to deliver individual experiences that
lead to engaged customers and create brand promoters." 
"If brands want to be relevant today they need to be talking to
customers across social channels and to truly engage with these fans,
they must communicate with individuals rather than generic groups,"
said Richard Jones, CEO of EngageSciences. "The combination of the
EngageSciences platform and the SDL Intelligent Marketing Suite
enables marketers to do just this - know who they're talking to, what
to say and how to say it."  
SDL Intelligent Marketing Suite is comprised of three core products:
SDL Customer Analytics, SDL Campaign Manager, and SDL Email Manager.
The family of products provides the foundation for marketers to
design campaigns around highly personalized activities and events
that are meaningful to individual customers. The SDL Intelligent
Marketing Suite integrates with the broader SDL portfolio to address
web content, ecommerce and multi-media, as well as social, mobile and
digital intelligence.
