Metadata Awarded 4th and 5th Patents As They Build First Demand Gen Platform for B2B Marketing

Metadata | February 07, 2022

Metadata.io, the first demand generation platform for B2B marketers, is pleased to announce they have received two new patents from The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for their technology that automates the most repetitive and mundane, but critical tasks in B2B marketing.

Today, the platform helps B2B marketers with building highly targeted audiences across channels, launching a high volume of campaign experiments, and self-optimizing those to what drives the most efficient revenue. The company currently has over 170 customers benefiting from this current technology.

With a mission to get Marketers closer to revenue, these two new patents will not only boost the performance of the existing campaigns platform but will introduce an entirely new capability to establish new technology integrations and enable new marketing strategies using a “playbook” concept.

“These patents are taking a step beyond a simple instruction manual to help customize and execute new marketing strategies based on a particular customer’s needs,” said Gil Allouche, CEO, Metadata.

“These patents are taking a step beyond a simple instruction manual to help customize and execute new marketing strategies based on a particular customer’s needs,” said Gil Allouche, CEO, Metadata. “We’re building a platform that allows revenue marketers to automatically run completely pre-optimized programs that apply proven B2B marketing best practices and playbooks across channels and technologies.”

The first patent was granted to Metadata for its proactive marketing technology. This new technology ingests a customer’s historical data from across their channels and technologies, understands the customer’s desired outcomes, and recommends best-next-step marketing strategies to achieve those outcomes most efficiently.

The second patent was granted for Metadata’s use of templates and playbooks that are digitally embedded into the platform that will apply proven B2B marketing best-practice strategies to customers’ campaigns and technology integrations.

As an example, on the first login, a new Metadata customer can integrate their technology stack, tell Metadata what outcomes they are trying to achieve, and the platform will go to work. It ingests years of detailed data, analyzes it against all previous customers, campaigns, technologies, and outcomes, and recommends to the user a specific way to set up and implement their technologies, as well as specific campaigns to run, in order to most efficiently and quickly achieve their goals.

Metadata’s first application of this was with LinkedIn Conversation Ads. Metadata provided Conversation Ad templates that had been pre-optimized with hundreds of thousands of dollars of ad spend, directly within the platform so their customers could run similar campaigns.

Metadata has captured detailed data from a growing customer base, including some of today’s most successful B2B companies, and will be able to leverage this data anonymously to make future predictions and recommendations across all their clients. The platform can then automatically take action based on this data, improving campaign performance while needing fewer resources.

“Historically, AI has been more of a novelty. Now, it’s embedded everywhere in our personal lives,” said Allouche. “It’s innate – we trust it without question when we need directions or groceries at our door. On the business side, however, we are only on the brink of its possibilities. But the technology is here, and ready to be leveraged.’

Bizzabo Acquires Klik to Transform In-Person Events Into Immersive, Data Driven Experiences

Bizzabo, Klik | November 17, 2021

Bizzabo, the Event Experience Operating System (OS), has acquired Klik, a Montreal-based event tech startup that has pioneered smart wearables technology to power onsite experiences at live events. Its technology helps event leaders elevate and measure attendee engagement, participation, and networking. The acquisition, announced at "The Future of Event Experiences" hybrid event today, enables Bizzabo to bring new onsite hardware and software expertise in-house as a core product and service. After more than 18 months of predominantly virtual events, Bizzabo predicts that in-person events will return in 2022. This will not be a "return to old ways" though. Both organizers and attendees have seen what's possible with virtual events and they're bringing increased expectations for true event experiences going forward, whether virtual, in-person, or hybrid. Organizers have established appetites for the rich behavioral and intent data that virtual events capture and expect the same level of intel for in-person events, which makes Klik particularly exciting. Klik's wearable tech and extensive infrastructure provides new levels of data visibility at in-person events, giving organizers valuable location-based insights into attendee engagement and behavior that lets them effectively measure success and plan for future events. Because Klik's wearables also act as a communications device, they can trigger customized recommendations on content, sessions, networking opportunities, sponsors to visit and more. Klik has powered major events for brands like Airbnb, MIT, and C2 Montréal. "We are designing our Event Experience Operating System to free Event Experience Leaders from the technical limitations of event management software so they can create immersive experiences for attendees, sponsors, exhibitors and speakers," said Eran Ben-Shushan, co-founder and CEO of Bizzabo. "We are designing our Event Experience Operating System to free Event Experience Leaders from the technical limitations of event management software so they can create immersive experiences for attendees, sponsors, exhibitors and speakers," said Eran Ben-Shushan, co-founder and CEO of Bizzabo. "With Klik's novel technology and exceptional team of event professionals, we're going to revolutionize in-person experiences." Unlike other event technologies that rely on NFC/RFID capabilities, Klik opted for a unique approach, designing and building its software and hardware using advanced BLE (Bluetooth) technology to enable features like localization, tracking and contact exchange — all done with a passive tracking system. This approach matches traditional NFC/RFID functionality and elevates attendee experiences by facilitating: Collection of advanced analytics like dwell time Touchless contact exchanges Gamification for attendees Lead collection for sponsors Easy tracking and reminders for session check-ins Bizzabo will integrate Klik's technology into the Event Experience OS as part of its already-robust onsite module. The company will also leverage Klik's technology with the Event Serendipity Engine™, which will proactively recommend other peers, content, sessions, and sponsors to attendees. The Event Serendipity Engine™ is powered by technology from x.ai, the AI-driven scheduling and matchmaking company Bizzabo acquired in June. Klik's team is joining Bizzabo and will be based out of Bizzabo's newly opened office in Montreal. Bizzabo is actively recruiting for numerous engineering, operations, and HR roles to round out the Montreal operation, which is its fifth global location following the opening of its London office in July. Bizzabo Announces App Marketplace in Event Experience OS Speaking at "The Future of Event Experiences" hybrid event today, Bizzabo's CEO Ben-Shushan also announced plans for the Bizzabo App Market. The App Marketplace is an integral component of the Event Experience OS as an open platform. "The App Marketplace is a comprehensive storefront where organizers will be able to browse and install innovative and exciting apps that help them create unique event experiences," Ben-Shusan said. "It's also a program for technology companies and developers to partner with Bizzabo and integrate their solutions into the OS, building a stronger and more responsive platform." Bizzabo has hired Boaz Ram to serve as the Vice President of Marketplace and lead the product development and partnerships efforts. Ram brings more than 15 years of product and partnerships experience, most recently serving as Head of Alliances at Salesforce following their acquisition of Datorama. Ram's team has already engaged a diverse set of developers and is continuing to accept applications. Klik is Bizzabo's fourth acquisition in six months, an addition complementing its previous acquisitions x.ai, Whalebone, and TeeVid, as Bizzabo continues its mission to transform the Event Experience for organizers and attendees alike. This latest acquisition accompanies other exciting new product growth with the launch of Bizzabo's Event Experience Category and Event Experience OS.

Experience is what matters most and it needs to be mobile-friendly and remote-work functional to meet customers on their terms, and meet people where they work,” said Craig Walker, CEO, Dialpad. “The legacy on-premises providers, along with the first generation of cloud platforms, curb their customers’ ability to meet the rapidly changing needs of the modern consumer. Koopid digital engagement technology, as well as our recent acquisition of Kare Knowledgeware, will help Dialpad lead this industry from the front with innovative solutions for the complexities of tomorrow.” The shift to personalized customer service has become the expectation of today’s discerning consumer. A tailored and informed support experience throughout the customer journey is now a significant differentiating factor for brands to leverage over traditional, tangible elements such as price or location. As impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to expand and evolve, digital engagements by customers are accelerating across all channels. Too often the static technology platforms of legacy providers leave businesses and agents struggling to manage the volume fluctuations, especially from the new normal of a hybrid environment. With the acquisition of Koopid, Dialpad will offer a superior omnichannel experience enabling companies to improve digital engagement with customers and build brand loyalty. “The Age of the Customer has transitioned into The Experience Age where the customer, employee and end user experience is now the great differentiator.

The infusion of Koopid’s omnichannel technology with Dialpad AI will offer companies a 360-degree view of customer interactions and synchronize conversations across all channels to boost CX by eliminating account detail repetition by the customer. “Dialpad is building agile and flexible cloud contact center solutions for the next generation of forward-thinking customer service providers and Koopid is a key piece to enhance our offering,” continued Walker. “The addition of Koopid’s revolutionary technology brings full omnichannel support to Dialpad Contact Center and offers Dialpad customers the most advanced AI-powered cloud solutions in the contact center industry.” “With the acquisition of Koopid, Dialpad continues to expand the capabilities of its contact center offering, aiming to offer the best CCaaS to pair with UCaaS,” said Sheila McGee-Smith, President and Principal Analyst, McGee-Smith Analytics. “Dialpad continues to show how its flexible, cloud-first architecture lends itself well to the incorporation of new technology quickly, either through acquisition or OEM, allowing their customers to realize benefits in weeks rather than months or even years.” According to Metrigy’s Customer Engagement Transformation 2021-22 research study, the use of digital channels is growing rapidly with more than 72% of companies employing at least four customer interaction channels. Additionally, nearly 50% of companies buy their voice and digital channels from the same provider. Koopid technology will integrate seamlessly within the Dialpad platform and expand its truly unified Communications as a Service (TrueCaaS) experience.

ABM ACCOUNTS

Terminus Report Finds European Companies Eager to Adopt Account-Based Practices

Terminus | September 24, 2021

Terminus, the only account-based engagement platform built to deliver more pipeline and revenue through multi-channel account-based marketing (ABM), today released its first-ever ‘State of ABM in Europe’ report. The 2021 study uncovered that while US marketers are more advanced, there’s tremendous interest in adopting account-based practices by European companies, among other key findings. The newly released report was conducted in partnership with England-based research firm, Vanson Bourne, who interviewed 500 marketing, sales, and customer professionals in the US, UK, France, and Germany over the summer of 2021. Key findings from the 2021 ‘State of ABM in Europe’ report include: While the UK lags other regions in terms of their ABM maturity, only 27 percent of British respondents indicate that they have implemented an ABM strategy compared to an overall average of 41 percent of companies. This signals the UK outpacing all other regions in terms of desire to implement an account-based strategy with 55 percent of respondents planning to implement an ABM strategy in the near future. 92 percent of all respondents agreed that sales and marketing alignment is critical to ABM success, but there is an even split between respondents disagreeing over whether it’s the cause or result of an ABM program. Restrictive data privacy regulations in Europe seem to have influenced existing ABM programs to be more focused on customer retention and expansion strategies. Germany leads the pack with respondents indicating that retention and expansion was a priority for ABM programs – 70 percent and 69 percent respectively– significantly beating the averages. Findings signal that third-party partners may be critical to launching and sustaining successful ABM programs regardless of region–and may be the key to fully integrating sales and marketing teams. “The results of this study were fascinating,” said Albany Vincent, Sr. Research Manager at Vanson Bourne. “While we were not shocked to see the US to be moderately ahead of Europe in their ABM maturity, we were surprised to see how much more eager European companies were to adopt these practices and their American counterparts. It appears to be a very exciting time to be a marketer- especially in Europe." “These results line up identically with the conversations I am having with marketing and revenue leaders in the region. Europe is at a true tipping point–ABM is poised to explode,” said Gavin Dimmock, GM of Terminus’ EMEA division. “With more stringent data laws in Europe, marketing leaders are increasingly concluding that an account-based approach is going to be the single most important transformation revenue organizations can go through to achieve efficient, sustainable growth. Our rapid International expansion and the opening of Terminus’s European operations reflect this market opportunity.” About Terminus Terminus is the only account-based engagement platform built to deliver more pipeline and revenue through multi-channel account-based marketing (ABM). The platform, Terminus Engagement Hub, connects the first and third-party data needed to understand both customers and prospects, with the most robust suite of engagement channels—including ads, chat, email, and web—available. Terminus powers multi-channel ABM for thousands of brands globally including DHL, G2, Outreach, and TripActions. Terminus is proud to be a G2 leader in ABM for 13 consecutive quarters.
