IT Services Provider Receives Five Industry Awards from the Business Marketing Association and Marketo
Wayne, Pa. – April 29, 2014 – Sungard Availability Services (Sungard AS), a leading provider of information availability through managed IT, cloud and recovery services, was recognized this month for its creativity in business-to-business (B2B) marketing by the Business Marketing Association (BMA) and Marketo. The Company received a total of five awards: three BMA Global ACE Awards under the ‘Integrated Marketing Campaign,’ ‘Content Marketing - Multiple Piece Program’ and ‘Microsite/Landing Page’ categories, and two Marketo Revvie Awards, including ‘The Visionary’ for vice president of Marketing, Christine Nurnberger.
Sungard AS focuses on breaking through the white noise of B2B marketing by placing a strong emphasis on creative campaigns aligned to specific offerings that drive lead generation and show a measurable ROI. Disciplined use of the Marketo customer engagement platform enables the Marketing team to demonstrate campaign success and value to the business in real-time.
The creative campaigns honored by BMA included the “Holiday Resiliency” campaign, which debuted in the fall of 2013. The campaign paralleled the ideas of surviving the holiday season and how companies can “pack, partner and participate” like an IT professional. Through tongue-in-cheek humor in three unique videos, audiences learned how to best approach and utilize the concepts of disaster recovery and the cloud.
“I’m honored and humbled to receive ‘The Visionary’ award from Marketo, but more importantly, I’m incredibly proud of my team for bringing home ‘The MOPster’ and other awards, all recognizing them for their hard work and achievements over the last year,” said Nurnberger. “To help reach and connect with our customers at every stage of the buying cycle, we develop innovative campaigns that are fun and digestible, but above all else we strive to drive real ROI to our business.”
“The key to our success is our customers’ success and growth,” said Jason Holmes, chief customer officer at Marketo. “The Revvies are our way of acknowledging marketers who truly maximize the value of the Marketo platform to deliver measurable results that are pivotal to the success of their companies.”
