LONDON (Business Wire) -- Wunderman announces the launch of Cognifide@Wunderman, an agency offering that provides significant advancements in how global brands can deliver localized, personalized and relevant content immediately, anywhere in the world. By combining Cognifide's technology expertise and Wunderman's IMPACT solutions, Cognifide@Wunderman delivers the efficiencies of centralized technology platforms together with the benefits of local personalized content.
Integrating a system that can deliver ‘glocal' experiences in real time that are optimised for mobile devices, demands extensive experience in understanding global marketing channels, software and access to data. Cognifide@Wunderman combines Cognifide's content management consulting, software integration experience and technology accelerator with Wunderman's IMPACT 360, advanced delivery systems, global presence, and tools and processes.
“For CMOs brand equity is paramount, and that means consistent and relevant web and mobile experiences globally. They also appreciate the differences in consumer behaviours around the world. Simultaneously, CIOs look for efficiencies; operating multiple platforms dilutes the value of data and the efficiency of which it can be applied,” said Gurval Caer, vice chairman and chief marketing officer, Wunderman. “Cognifide@Wunderman will minimize the operational costs—both time and money—while maximizing impact and relevance locally, anywhere in the world.”
Cognifide technology accelerators including Zen Garden and Zengage sync up with Wunderman's global data sources and local resources to provide Cognifide@Wunderman clients with a customizable approach to marketing that will drive up efficiencies, decrease waste and increase ROI. Cognifide@Wunderman will also incorporate Zen Garden into Wunderman's IMPACT 360 solution, launched recently with Adobe. Called Impact Experience, the solution combines best-in-class technologies from Adobe, Cognifide and Wunderman to deliver personalized, glocal content platforms.
“Combining Wunderman's vast arsenal of international tools, data and network means that Cognifide@Wunderman clients can deliver locally relevant experiences at unprecedented scale,” said Miro Walker, chief executive officer, Cognifide.
