Movable Ink To Acquire Coherent Path

Movable Ink | February 21, 2022

Movable Ink, the leading content personalization provider, announced that it intends to acquire Coherent Path, the AI-powered content engine powering some of the world's biggest brands.

Coherent Path aggregates data from a variety of sources and applies AI to map each customer's unique product discovery path and guide customers towards new products that deliver greater lifetime value for brands and customers alike. Unlike traditional algorithms that reinforce what customers already like, Coherent Path helps customers discover new products that they'll love while also meeting the brand's goal of delivering the most value to a customer relationship. Marketers still retain the ability to define business rules and own strategic brand goals; Coherent Path just helps marketers reach those goals faster. 

Coherent Path will be integrated into the Movable Ink platform to help marketers intelligently and automatically adapt their messaging while maximizing the ROI of their marketing programs. Movable Ink continues to focus on content-level personalization by automatically generating content while seamlessly connecting into existing martech investments like ESPs and Marketing Clouds.

Every company on the planet wants to put their customer at the center of what they do. Personalization has become the new strategic imperative. Despite unprecedented access to data, marketers have not been able to understand recent behaviors and quickly shift their marketing to changing customer tastes. Existing production processes fall down when one has to create millions of unique experiences at speed and scale."

Vivek Sharma, CEO and Co-Founder of Movable Ink

"With Coherent Path's acquisition, we're bringing a game-changing AI technology to marketing teams everywhere. Whereas many current machine learning systems simply reinforce known customer behavior by recommending products similar to those customers have already purchased, Coherent Path's unique approach focuses on discovery. Customers are guided to their next favorite products, categories, and content, through AI that organically shapes content to fit each customer's evolving tastes and guides them to new areas across the product catalog. This is a potent solution when combined with Movable Ink's data access, content generation, and cross-channel personalization capabilities," added Sharma.

"We've been leveraging Movable Ink and Coherent Path to optimize and automate our email marketing program for several years now and have seen exciting results, including significant lifts in engagement and revenue," said Sean Duffy, Vice President – Contact Strategy & Search, Bloomingdale's. "With Coherent Path's AI and Movable Ink's ability to automate the creation of millions of variations of personalized content, this union is a win-win for Bloomingdale's as we work to increase production efficiencies and provide our customers with relevant content that enhances our relationship with them. We're eager to see how Coherent Path and Movable Ink build upon their unique value propositions together to help us take our personalization efforts to the next level and drive increased revenue."

The acquisition of Coherent Path by Movable Ink will enable marketers to better understand customer intent, activate any data, and serve the ideal, personalized content in an automated way across a variety of customer touchpoints.

"Coherent Path and Movable Ink have a shared vision of how the power of data and technology can transform marketers' strategies and drive incremental, lasting value," said James Glover, CEO and Co-Founder of Coherent Path. "We are excited to combine forces with Movable Ink to transform marketing from guesswork into a science that delivers powerful ROI."

With the addition of Coherent Path's 50 employees, Movable Ink will cross 500 employees globally.

Canaccord Genuity LLC served as exclusive financial advisor to Coherent Path in connection with the transaction, and Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky, and Popeo, P.C. served as legal advisor. Cooley LLP served as legal advisor to Movable Ink.

SproutLoud Analytics Provides Brands a Unique Flexibility in National-to-Local Marketing Management

SproutLoud | June 28, 2021

SproutLoud is glad to declare a substantial advancement in its Ad Hoc Marketing Analytics tool, giving brands exceptional adaptability and control in understanding the performance of their advertising spend at the local level through reseller partners. "This is advancement in getting the right information to the perfect individuals at the right time," said SproutLoud President Gary Ritkes. “Enterprise brands are no longer constrained by something that is pre-intended for them. They have the opportunity to access, arrange, visualize and share the data that is generally applicable to them and the groups they work with." Brand marketers utilize SproutLoud to customize their own marketing analytics dashboards to quantity and tackle everything from partner engagement to funds, orders, and call tracking. Now, SproutLoud delivers additional data model support for claims and audits. “We’re supporting a bigger segment of brands that use Co-Op Marketing, so they can rapidly get the answers they need,” Ritkes said. “Now, all this information is accessible at their fingertips and can be dissected to answer their most important questions.” Today, most Through Channel Marketing Automation (TCMA) and Distributed Marketing platforms offer poor analytics with static reports or pre-set dashboards, leaving brand users with enterprise data teams without the ability to slice and dice the information the way they want. The standard way often involves pulling reports, combining them with other reports, and matching data points to create new data sets. And that can get extraordinarily time-consuming for brand marketers and their internal audit teams. With SproutLoud, all it takes is a few clicks to see how an audit is being conducted, if KPIs are being met, to get the most relevant answers, and to rapidly share that information with internal teams that are authorized to see it. Ad Hoc Analytics is now available to select SproutLoud customers on Enterprise license plans.
