Acxiom has signed a strategic partnership with personalisation platform Boxever in a deal designed to strengthen to offer clients of the IPG-owned business what it insists will be “hyper-personalisation at scale”.
It is claimed the deal will boost Acxiom’s ability to provide a balanced portfolio of customer data platform offerings, with the aim of providing customer experiences to global clients in every industry.
The partnership is part of a series of digital transformation offerings Acxiom is launching in 2020 to deliver new value and more innovative, integrated solutions to the market, the company said.
Joint clients will have the ability to enhance customer profiles in Boxever with Acxiom’s repository of enrichment data, coupled with technology to enhance testing strategies that can help to quantify the value of the augmented data.
They will also be able to integrate with Acxiom’s Real Identity solutions, layering in identity management and resolution capabilities, allowing brands to build out a private ID graph that works across the entire business.
Meanwhile, clients will also receive bespoke guidance and on-hand support through the process, using Acxiom’s transformation framework for CDPs and “five Es methodology”.
Acxiom portfolio leader for EMEA David Keens said: “As a customer intelligence company, we help our clients to truly know and understand their customers and to deliver exceptional customer experiences.
“The Boxever platform is a great component in achieving our ‘Better Together’ vision, with its capability of personalisation, experimentation, AI, and decisioning. It really helps us put one to one personalisation at the heart of the consumer experience for our clients. Boxever, coupled with our portfolio of data products, identity services and professional services will help brands tackle their martech and adtech challenges.”
Boxever channel director Lorna Loney added: “Brands recognise the importance of CX and personalisation but don’t have the data or tech stack to deliver. By partnering with Acxiom we ensure we can introduce our clients to experts across a range of capabilities, adding value throughout their personalisation journey.
“At Boxever we pride ourselves in delivering first class personalisation and decision making solutions. We’ve been doing it for years for some of the world’s most recognised household brands. But we know we are not experts across all things marketing, which is why we are building a partner ecosystem to include SI, tech and agency partners – Acxiom ticks each of these boxes.”
