Accenture Interactive Teams with Adobe to Launch Customer Engagement Solutions for Financial Services Organizations

New digital marketing solutions help attract, engage and retain high-value customers

NEW YORK; Oct. 5, 2016 – Accenture Interactive announced that it has teamed with Adobe to launch new digital marketing solutions for financial services organizations in North America and Europe. The newly released solutions are designed to help financial services clients attract, engage and retain high-value customers by creating relevant digital experiences that grow sales and revenue while improving retention and loyalty.

The solutions will help financial services organizations quickly roll out digital experiences aimed at onboarding and activating high-value customers through engaging experiences. The solutions built on Adobe’s Marketing Cloud include:

“Our clients are constantly looking for vertical-specific solutions that will be meaningful and useful for their customers,” said Glen Hartman, senior managing director for Accenture Interactive North America. “Many financial services organizations are vying to drive greater innovation and transformation in their digital marketing initiatives – these solutions have the ability to be rolled out quickly and drive desired business and customer outcomes.”

Last year, Accenture Interactive and Adobe announced the expansion of their global alliance to create and deliver digital marketing solutions for life sciences, healthcare and financial services organizations. Under this three-year agreement, Accenture Interactive and Adobe committed to develop joint solutions for these industries to drive greater marketing performance and efficiencies. The solutions for financial services are the first of the identified verticals to launch.

“Through Adobe’s alliance relationship with Accenture Interactive, we now have the ability to better create and deliver tailored digital marketing solutions for financial services organizations,” said Garrett Ilg, Adobe’s SVP, Global Enterprise Operations and President of EMEA. “By combining Accenture Interactive’s strong marketing and industry expertise with the deep technology capabilities of Adobe Marketing Cloud, these digital solutions will provide the personalized customer experiences clients require, to better compete in today’s digital economy.”

Adobe named Accenture Interactive as the 2015 Marketing Cloud Partner of the Year for the Americas and EMEA, which recognizes Accenture’s commitment to a cloud-first agenda and the collaborative and successful work the two companies achieved together.
