Sydney, Australia, July 03, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Veda, Asia-Pacific’s leading provider of consumer and commercial data intelligence and insights, today announced their support of the product expansion of Datalicious, the industry leading data-driven digital marketing agency.
Following a $1 billion valuation after their IPO in December 2013, Veda invested in Datalicious in early 2014 as part of its growth strategy for its marketing services division, Inivio. At the time, Datalicious founder Christian Bartens said the investment would allow Datalicious to develop new products for its customers and further assist them in improving the effectiveness and return on their marketing programs.
Over the past few months, the Datalicious team have delivered on this intention, investing heavily in key product offerings SuperTag, OptimaHub, DataCollector and DataExchange.
Bartens reiterates the investment has been well-planned and Veda’s support has been invaluable. “We’ve worked hard to get the strategy around our productisation right. On their own, these are great digital marketing tools, but when you connect them all, they deliver powerful, actionable insights and play a vital role in our data driven marketing solutions.
“Veda believed in our products when they made the investment and receiving the backing of a $1 billion organisation like Veda allows us to expand and be really innovative with our ideas.”
Veda Chief Data Officer Simon Bligh says that these products from Datalicious are closely-aligned with Veda’s wider marketing services growth strategy.
“The value we saw in Datalicious was not only for their consulting prowess but also the marketing products they already had developed as well as future products on their roadmap. We saw Inivio as our way into the offline marketing arena and Datalicious are leading us into the new frontier of digital marketing products and services.”
In addition to investing in productisation, Datalicious is using the investment to grow its own workforce, hiring a product manager among several key hires, as well as expand operations internationally, opening an office in Manila and recruiting business developers in the US and Europe.
