Agent3 Acquires Demand Generation Specialist, oneninefive, to Accelerate Delivery of Account-centric Demand Generation, at Scale

Agent3, oneninefive | February 02, 2022

Agent3, the leading global end-to-end Account-Based Marketing (ABM) provider, has acquired leading demand generation specialist, oneninefive, to significantly enhance its ability to deliver account-centric demand generation programs to its global customer base. Combining the existing Agent3 demand generation resources with the team at oneninefive will immediately create a global team of more than 40 consultants focused on the delivery of higher quality account engagement and leads that are faster to close. The strategic driver for the acquisition is the common belief that B2B organizations are disillusioned with the demand generation process delivering volume rather than value. By joining forces, Agent3 and oneninefive now seek to address this issue by combining to deliver a more thoughtful, data-driven and insight-led approach to deliver better outcomes. Explained Clive Armitage, CEO, Agent3: “Increasingly, our customers have been turning to us to apply our account-based methodology to lead generation, as opposed to traditional methods which all too often are biased towards quantity as the only measure of value. This account-centric, personalized approach delivers needle shifting results for our clients, but bringing oneninefive into the fold enables us to do so at scale. Today is another huge step in the development of Agent3. With this announcement, I’m confident that our overall proposition for our customers just got even stronger.” “In addition to the issue of disillusionment with the current demand generation process, for me, there are two macro events that are further driving the importance of effective demand generation,” added Jordan Adams, CEO, oneninefive. Firstly, the relatively recent appointment of CMOs to the board means they are now directly responsible for organizational growth, and therefore any campaigns executed need to show a clear ROI. Secondly, the death of third party cookies in 2022 will make it increasingly challenging for marketers to track leads without a data-driven approach and a deep understanding of B2B audiences, their interests, challenges and intent. Our proprietary technology and first party intent expertise solves both of these issues delivering the high quality leads that marketing teams need to fuel growth. “oneninefive is so named because we operate in all countries in the world and this scale, combined with Agent3’s personalized, account-centric approach means we’re creating significant opportunities for our customers to build better demand generation campaigns.” “oneninefive is so named because we operate in all countries in the world and this scale, combined with Agent3’s personalized, account-centric approach means we’re creating significant opportunities for our customers to build better demand generation campaigns.” This acquisition follows several significant investments that Agent3 has made in end-to-end ABM capabilities as it seeks to continue its global growth momentum. This delivery model allows customers - such as LinkedIn, Salesforce, Splunk, Citrix and Sony - to benefit from true specialists in insight, competitive positioning, creative services, digital activation and campaign management and from bespoke programs that map to their needs, rather than an agency operational model.

The ABM platform monitors all interactions from both known and anonymous visitors to uncover where accounts moved along the buying group journey and when they're ready for the next marketing or sales action. Then, Jabmo allocates a dynamic score between 0 and 100 to each account, based on a comprehensive evaluation of engagement activities, company attributes, and customizable filters. Account-level intent score components include the following: Buying group size, including known and anonymous buying group members; Key pages viewed, average time spent, and content consumed; Activity on pages designed for specific stages of the buying group journey; and Omnichannel engagement signals. Jabmo users can further refine their evaluations by date ranges, industries and sectors, countries and regions, accounts and divisions, and marketing channels. "With this latest update, our customers can not only go deep on target accounts selected for account-based advertising but also gain greater visibility into all accounts engaging with their website and marketing content anonymously."said Nick Heys, CEO of Jabmo, in a statement.
