  MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA, Feb 27 (Marketwire) -- 
Gigya, the leading provider of social infrastructure for business,
announced that emarsys, a leading provider of email, social and mobile
marketing automation solutions, will be joining Gigya's NEXUS Partner
Ecosystem. The new partnership features integrations that allow joint
clients to easily port rich social profile and on-site behavior data into
emarsys' platform for hyper-targeted email campaigns. 

    Through this integration, joint clients will be able to send targeted
emails informed by social data and on-site activity data obtained via
Gigya's Social Login and Social Plugins. By leveraging permission-based
social data stored by Gigya, clients can segment users by categories like
interests, activities and location as well as by on-site behaviors. This
data can then be automatically ported into emarsys' platform to send
targeted deals, information and offers to customers based on their social
profile data.

    "emarsys is thrilled to join Gigya's NEXUS Ecosystem," said John Fleming,
VP of Marketing, emarsys. "Our partnership aligns perfectly with our
strategy of emarsys connect which is enabling automated multi-channel
communication, utilizing all the available resources that our clients
have on their contacts, in an automated hands free manner. We see social
data as a major piece of that puzzle moving forward." 

    "Today's consumers expect personalized experiences all over the web --
and this expectation extends to email as well," said Patrick Salyer, CEO
of Gigya. "Through our integration with emarsys, our joint clients have a
remarkable opportunity to reach their customers like never before."
