SAN MATEO, Calif., June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Marketo Inc. (NASDAQ: MKTO), the leading provider of marketing software, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Visionaries" quadrant in the Magic Quadrant for Multichannel Campaign Management (MCCM).
The evaluation is based on a combination of Marketo's completeness of vision and ability to execute as well as its industry-leading partner program called LaunchPoint™. Comprised of more than 250 solutions, LaunchPoint™ allows Marketo's partners and third parties to plug into the company's customer engagement platform which acts as the marketing system of record and helps users orchestrate, communicate and measure inbound and outbound offers to customers across websites, mobile, social, direct mail, call centers and email.
Gartner expects spending on MCCM software to reach almost $914 million in 2014, a growth rate of 24 percent. Digital marketing has sparked this growth because it enables new techniques that can grow revenue faster — for example, inbound marketing, real-time marketing and data-driven marketing. In addition, new technologies, such as social and mobile, open not just new channels, but also new ways of engaging customers.
"Our mission is to help marketers create one-to-one marketing and build valuable lifetime customer relationships across all channels," said Sanjay Dholakia, chief marketing officer at Marketo. "We believe Gartner's recent magic quadrant report is validation of our strategy and highlights our unique ability to help marketers succeed in a digital world. As we continue to innovate with new capabilities such as Real-Time Personalization , Marketo Calendar and Marketo SEO, we will continue to help marketers thrive in this fast-paced, demanding world of customer engagement."
