BEAVERTON, Ore. & PORTSMOUTH, England--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Act-On Software today announced the opening of its first European sales arm in partnership with Pipedream Marketing. Pipedream will be the exclusive reseller for the UK and work closely with Act-On USA in selling to the rest of Europe.
“Working with a partner like Pipedream should accelerate our overall adoption, help build up a successful channel ecosystem, and lay the groundwork for expansion into adjacent markets.”
“Without an official European presence we have already signed a significant amount of license deals across European markets,” said David Appelbaum, Act-On CMO. “Working with Pipedream will help us to spread the benefits of our technology even more rapidly, and provide local support to our expanding European business portfolio.”
Pipedream will assume day-to-day management & support of the current UK and European customer base effective immediately. They will also be responsible for recruiting a broader European channel network to drive Act-On’s Integrated Marketing Platform into new markets across Europe, the Middle East, & Africa. As a fully integrated marketing platform, Act-On represents best in class value for the UK/EMEA market.
“The Act-On Integrated Marketing Platform is ideal for the European market,” says Phil Ball, Managing Director, Pipedream. “Given the proportionately smaller sizes of European companies vs. their US counterparts as well as the tighter budgets they’re forced to operate under, Act-On is priced correctly and with the rich feature set to drive significant adoption in the UK to be followed by the rest of Europe over time.”
“We view the European market as the next logical step in our overall growth path,” says Raghu Raghavan, Founder and CEO of Act-On Software. “Working with a partner like Pipedream should accelerate our overall adoption, help build up a successful channel ecosystem, and lay the groundwork for expansion into adjacent markets.”
