Dec 20, 2011, 08:00 ET from Spredfast

AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Spredfast, a leading social media management system provider, today announced a technology alliance with Dachis Group, the world's leader in Social Business, to better address and solve the Social Business challenges many leading enterprises and agencies face today.  The companies are working together to provide joint customers with the strategy, technology and data applications needed for improved deployment, management and analysis of their Social Business initiatives. 

"As companies are delving deeper into social media to achieve larger organizational goals, they are discovering that social engagement can be complex and hard to manage," said Rod Favaron, Spredfast Chief Executive Officer. "Our partnership with Dachis Group is enabling customers to not only scale and navigate their social media initiatives more efficiently, but we're also providing a new level of sophistication to understanding and analyzing the impact these social interactions are having on driving business."

As a result of the technology alliance, Spredfast will integrate the Dachis Group Social Business Index data and information set into the Spredfast social media management platform in early 2012.  The Dachis Group Social Business Index provides ongoing real-time ranking, analysis and benchmarking of Social Business adoption and performance. Once integrated, combining the engagement and management functionalities of the Spredfast platform with the rich data set enabled by the Dachis Group Social Business Index, the improved Spredfast platform will give enterprises and agencies the ability to implement scalable social media campaigns and maintain a holistic view of how those campaigns perform on an actual basis, and then benchmark performance against industry peers, competitors and best in class.  This will enable brands to optimize and efficiently direct their social spend to drive impact on an organization's overall business goals.

"It's clear that brands need a better way to measure the effectiveness of their increased social spend," said Jeffrey Dachis, Dachis Group Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  "We're looking forward to working closely with Spredfast to give companies the technology they need to both execute Social Business performance brand marketing campaigns and garner actionable insights that meaningfully measure return on the performance of their efforts."
