A new marketing platform redesign team is being set up under this partnership. This team is designed to maximize marketing impact by integrating disparate marketing processes on Salesforce or another cloud solution platform. It will be able to offer a world-class one-stop service that runs the gamut: from formulating business and marketing strategies based on the client’s challenges to designing marketing platforms, installing and synching cloud solutions, data management and analytics, and designing and executing advertising and CRM activities. Further, the team will, by applying its strengths in communication design, create meaningful brand experiences that bring companies and sei-katsu-sha together.

In addition, the team will provide seamless support to clients with their domestic and international marketing activities, building on Appirio’s success stories worldwide by tapping into its global network and extensive knowledge of Salesforce Marketing Cloud.
