TAMPA, Fla., and BELLINGHAM, Wash. (Feb. 9, 2015) – Aptaris, a marketing enterprise management innovator, and Accelitec, provider of cloud-based digital and mobile marketing solutions, announced a partnership to deliver services providing marketers with greater ability to identify and act on opportunities to drive profitability.
The arrangement will allow marketers to use Aptaris’s world-class campaign and resource management tools to drive results all the way through the shopping experience by connecting to the point-of-sale with Accelitec’s WalletBuilder platform. The combined services bring a powerful new way for marketers to create, connect, and deliver highly effective promotional campaigns.
“Being able to tie our marketing and promotion management solutions to Accelitec’s shopper marketing and engagement services provides marketers with a 360-degree platform,” said Tom O’Reilly, Aptaris CEO. “This powerful technology elevates loyalty programs for grocery wholesalers by presenting irresistible customer rewards and offers. The result is higher consumer engagement and return on investment for retailers.”
In an increasingly complex and fast-developing retail technology environment, consumer adoption and expectations can be hard for many retailers to match. With a similar focus on solutions that make it easier to operate in this area of rapid change, the Aptaris – Accelitec combination takes the strengths of both companies to make the complicated more manageable.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for Accelitec to connect with Aptaris’s elegant solution for managing marketing initiatives,” said Tom Bartz, Accelitec CEO. “We think this is a powerful solution that is unmatched in the market and will deliver the results that matter most to our customers.”
The arrangement calls for each party to develop opportunities from existing and new customer connections for a combined offering through co-selling activities, and allows for each side to generate leads for the other independently.
