1-800-FLOWERS, eBags, Adore Me and Aquasana select Optimove's Customer Marketing Cloud to automate personalized customer interactions that increase engagement and loyalty

New York, NY (PRWEB) May 17, 2016

Optimove, the leading Customer Marketing Cloud, announced today that it is building on its momentum in the North American retail sector by opening a new office in New York City while adding four major US e-retailers to the growing stable of e-commerce businesses using the Optimove software to manage and automate their customer retention operations. 1-800-FLOWERS, eBags, Adore Me and Aquasana join over 180 brands, including LuckyVitamin, NuMe, Nelly, La Perla, and GetWinesDirect, as Optimove customers.

An Israeli based company, Optimove has recently made strong inroads into the US market. The company's founder and CEO, Pini Yakuel, has relocated to New York to spearhead Optimove's operations in North America and oversee the new office, located at 19 West 21st Street. The company is currently hiring aggressively for sales, marketing and business development roles in its New York office, which it expects to staff 15 employees by the end of this year and double that by 2017. "The American market offers us vast opportunities, but it’s very competitive and you really need to have boots on the ground," said Mr. Yakuel. "In order to become a market leader you need a major presence in the US, and this is exactly what we're doing now."

Optimove enables marketers to manage and automate multi-channel customer marketing plans based on proprietary, predictive micro-segmentation technology. The Optimove platform helps marketers maximize customer engagement, loyalty and lifetime value by automatically personalizing, executing and evaluating a complete framework of customer data-driven campaigns.
