Mark Britt, iflix Group CEO said, "We are genuinely committed to having the consumer at the absolute core of everything we do – from content to marketing. We begin by ensuring that we cover all bases; no blind spots in our view of customers across all channels and devices. Further to that, customer advocacy for us is non-negotiable and a lead driver of value from day one. We are additionally speaking to leading publishers across the region about ways in which we can collaborate to grow our subscriber numbers and their revenue in innovative ways.”
"We love partnering with game-changing brands who are attempting to disrupt the status quo and redefine marketing excellence. The reality is also that no single technology company can deliver an all-encompassing customer view and business outcomes at the scale and efficiency that iflix requires. I applaud the creative approach iflix is taking and also the commitment and problem solving skills that the other technology partners bring to the table,” said Kerry McCabe, Managing Director, RadiumOne, Asia Pacific.
"iflix understands that a unified customer view drives significant business benefits for its fabulous entertainment offering. Krux is pleased to be the engine that centralizes and activates iflix’s people data. We look forward to enabling tailored, engaging and relevant experiences to iflix customers,” said Krux Managing Director Asia Pacific Stuart Spiteri.
"Much like the product itself, iflix's digital marketing approach has been extraordinary, across the partners they have assembled. The iflix team has taken an innovative approach to linking every touch point and channel, using the foundation of social and programmatic media, to engage, recruit and retain customers. The targeting and segmentation work along with the creative variations utilised is unique. This understanding of the market will give huge competitive advantage as they scale" said Nick Gibbons, Global Head of Social, ReFUEL4.
