NEW YORK, Jan. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Shutterstock, Inc. (NYSE: SSTK), a leading global provider of commercial digital imagery and music, today announced technology integrations with Optimizely and Sprinklr. By integrating the Shutterstock API directly into their platforms, Optimizely and Sprinklr customers will be able to easily search, preview and license high-quality imagery for use in their optimization and social media campaigns.

Each integration helps marketers at different phases of their workflow. Optimizely, the most widely-adopted Experience Optimization Platform in the world, is leveraging Shutterstock's collection to empower thousands of global customers to seamlessly add images to their testing experiments and deliver better experiences across web and mobile. Sprinklr, the world's most complete enterprise social technology, is collaborating with Shutterstock to enable more than 1,000 brands to license imagery directly within their Content Discovery area by automatically suggesting relevant imagery to create powerful marketing campaigns.

"We are delighted to welcome Optimizely and Sprinklr to our API partner program, as both are at the forefront of their industries, empowering businesses with multichannel needs." said Catherine Ulrich, Shutterstock's Chief Product Officer. "Providing their customers with frictionless access to over 70 million images and 3 million video clips gives our API partners an instant edge over their competitors."

The API allows for a wide range of integrations across websites, mobile applications, content management systems, and more. By integrating with Shutterstock image, video, or music search, companies like Optimizely and Sprinklr are joining other notable platforms leveraging Shutterstock's technology, including Facebook and NewsCred.
