Ensighten acquires Anametrix for marketing analytics boost

Acquisition is the second for the tag and data management provider in the past year

Tag and data management vendor, Ensighten, has acquired marketing analytics provider, Anametrix, as it looks to shore up a stronger position in the race to own marketing budgets.

In a statement, Ensighten said the purchase of Anametrix’s Agile Marketing Platform adds a new layer of analytics capability across its data tracking and customer insights offering. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Ensighten was established in 2009 initially to provide tag management systems, but as these capabilities become embedded into more integrated enterprise marketing cloud platforms, it has been working to try and grow its presence in the more lucrative data management solutions space. It has raised US$55 million in funding to date, and opened an Australian office in May.

Anametrix is its second recent acquisition; Ensighten also acquired its UK rival, Tagman, last December, doubling its customer base to more than 300 organisations globally and building a footprint in Europe and the UK.

The vendor claims marketers will now have a richer set of data and analytics tools to drive better insights they can then use to tailor customer experiences, while optimising budget allocation across the online and offline marketing mix.

Anametrix’s customer base includes a host of global 2000 marketers and has tripled in the past year, the companies stated. Its suite spot industries include news and entertainment media, automotive and ecommerce direct marketing organisations.

“Infusing Anametrix’s expertise and technology into Ensighten’s open marketing platform provides marketers with the unique ability to derive powerful insights and act on them in real-time,” claimed Ensighten founder and CEO, Josh Manion.

“In a competitive environment, smart and timely actions make all the difference, and we’re proud to be leading the industry towards delivering more relevant and personalised consumer experiences across the entire customer journey.”

The companies insisted existing Anametrix customers will not be impacted or have to make any changes as a result of the acquisition.

Anametrix’s CEO and a former CMO, Pelin Thorogood, noted the two vendors had been partners for some time and were aligned both in terms of mission and culture.

“I’ve always believed that the value of the analytics and actions is bound by the quality and completeness of the data,” she stated. “I am thrilled that the combined entity will indeed deliver the industry’s most comprehensive datasets to enable our clients to drive highly relevant, personalised omni-channel experiences for consumers.”

Determining our Humanity

‘Business as unusual’ is a term my organisation has adopted to describe the professional aftermath of COVID-19 and the rest of the tragic events this year. Social distancing, perspex screens at counters and masks in all manner of situations have introduced us to a world we were never familiar with. But, as we keep being reminded, this is the new normal. This is the world we created. Yet we also have the opportunity to create something else.
