LONDON, Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Ensighten, innovator of Real-Time™ Tag Management Systems and visitor privacy solutions that optimise digital marketing performance, has signed a technology partnership with Intelligent Reach, a provider of data feed and performance optimisation solutions that empower truly actionable marketing and enable retailers to grow their online business more profitably. Located in London, England, Intelligent Reach's client list includes Argos, ASDA, Avis, Carphone Warehouse, Debenhams, and House of Fraser.
Intelligent Reach helps online retailers ensure their products are present wherever their customers prefer to shop, be that on the retailer's online store, or via third-party websites such as Amazon and eBay. Intelligent Reach's technology consolidates all a retailer's product data into a single, rich product feed that can be delivered through multiple distribution networks. The company uses tracking and analytics to help the retailer optimize placement of specific products in specific channels to maximize sales. By placing unique tags on every website that features its clients' products, Intelligent Reach can determine which clicks or user activities are generating sales.
Managing these tags can be a huge task that typically takes three to six months to complete, which is where Ensighten's tag management technology becomes crucial. Intelligent Reach is now offering Ensighten's tag management system to customers who must perform complex on-page tag management, such as is required with advanced analytics, AB testing, personalisation, and other website optimisation tools.
"Our advanced insight teams are building the Ensighten solution into their standard implementations," said Rebecca West, intelligence director at Intelligent Reach. "The deployment of advanced tags in now significantly simpler for our implementation engineers, and we are safe in the knowledge that site performance will be maintained or even improved while our clients benefit from streamlined and more agile approach to tracking."
"Over time the integration will be deeper as the partnership develops but for now it's the best of both worlds, leveraging great technology from platforms on either side," said Andrew Thomas, co-founder and development director at Intelligent Reach.
With a few clicks, website managers can now use Ensighten to automatically deploy an Intelligent Reach tag, along with dozens of other tags that control website functionality, throughout an entire website. When a visitor's browser encounters Ensighten's master tag on any page, the Ensighten system determines, in real time, which tags to trigger and in which sequence. And by separating website content from tags, Ensighten accelerates page load times, ensuring the website feels responsive to visitors.
"We spent a long time evaluating the market for the perfect tag management solution, which could dovetail with our offering," said Steve Rivers, managing director and founder of Intelligent Reach. "Our platform enables marketing automation and optimisation at a granular level, and it's essential that we empower our customers to be as agile as possible to adapt to changing consumer behaviour. With Ensighten, we have been able to significantly add to the agility of our customers. In addition, the performance benefits associated with Ensighten's technology will ensure our customers have the very best chance to convert browsers into buyers."
"With Intelligent Reach support now built into Ensighten Manage, retailers and their agencies will dramatically shorten the time it takes to plan and execute the logistics of tag management, which means they spend more time on optimisation and experimentation to yield better sales results," said Adrian James, managing director of Ensighten EMEA. "We look forward to partnering with Steve and his team to introduce more retailers to their technology."
As an Ensighten partner, Intelligent Reach has joined Ensighten Connect, giving it access to a framework of benefits and services that give it access to best practices for tag management and as well as co-marketing opportunities.
