Krux Deepens Partnership with Salesforce to Help Marketers Extend Consumer Reach and Drive New Sales


The integration of Krux’s DMP solution with Salesforce Marketing Cloud data helps brands create and orchestrate relevant customer experiences

San Francisco – May 4, 2016 – Krux, a market-leading data management platform provider (DMP), announced today it has deepened its integration with Salesforce Marketing Cloud by now empowering advertisers to match third-party data with their customer information on their Salesforce instances. Krux has also entered the Salesforce ISV partner program, extending the two companies’ previously announced integration from June 2015.

Through the Krux-Salesforce integration, companies can deepen their understanding of the customers they serve, put their Marketing Cloud data to work across all digital channels and extend their consumer reach to drive new revenue. Connecting this data facilitates more effective audience segmentation and ad targeting so brands can deliver the personalized customer experiences that earn long-term loyalty.

Through investments made by Krux, this integration will now enable joint Krux-Salesforce Marketing Cloud clients to not only use their customer data to target consumers on the open web, it will also enable them to enrich their customer profiles with online engagement data.  The back and forth data exchange between these data sets creates a virtuous cycle that sees Salesforce clients consistently increasing the value of both their online and offline data.

“In order to meet consumer’s expectations and drive growth, companies will need to transform their organizations with new playbooks and intelligent systems that deliver 1-to-1 journeys,” said Scott McCorkle, CEO, Marketing Cloud, Salesforce. “By working with Krux, our customers are able to unlock additional value from their Marketing Cloud data. Marketers will not only be able to forge deeper relationships with current customers but will also be able to put their invaluable data assets to work acquiring and retaining new customers.”

With turnkey access to Krux’s platform, companies can unlock their data on the Salesforce Marketing Cloud and marry it with consumer signals from all digital channels. This yields a more complete profile and the ability to orchestrate more intelligent, more valuable engagements across the consumer journey. Further, companies have the ability to unify and activate their customer data to power all of their digital marketing activities, expanding upon those channels supported natively via Salesforce Marketing Cloud.

Through Krux’s ability to reach 3B+ browser and devices monthly and leading machine-driven segmentation, companies can identify countless other consumers that share critical attributes with their known customers; each of those new consumer targets represents new revenue potential.

“Krux’s integration with Salesforce Marketing Cloud provides companies with unprecedented capabilities to capture, unify and activate people data to drive business growth,” said Tom Chavez, Krux co-founder and CEO. “Krux has extended well beyond its DMP roots to serve as an Intelligent Marketing Hub, allowing enterprises to unlock their considerable data resources and put them to work driving more relevant, more valuable consumer interactions. We are deepening our partnership with Salesforce with that mission in mind, to demonstrate the power and potential of bringing together deep, rich consumer data stores with intelligent cross-Web data infrastructure.”

Krux will be showcasing its integration with Salesforce at this year’s digital marketing event of the year, Connections 2016 in Atlanta, May 10-12, 2016.
