Marketing tools for e-commerce

Integrate and extend ecommerce marketing

Marketing tools for e-commerce help businesses engage in ongoing, compelling and individual dialogues with customers. Management Center for IBM WebSphere Commerce provides this capability, allowing business users to centrally control and manage all catalog content, targeted marketing and promotions across web, mobile, contact center, kiosk and point-of-sale touchpoints. By integrating ecommerce marketing and precision marketing environments, business users no longer have to rely on IT to support marketing campaigns, promotions and catalog modifications.

IBM also offers IBM Marketing Center, a cloud-based solution that extends precision marketing to WebSphere Commerce. This ecommerce marketing tool provides marketers with additional capability to personalize marketing and dynamically target customers, based on powerful digital analytics. IBM Marketing Center delivers enhanced list management and email marketing capabilities; and as a hosted ecommerce marketing solution, it virtually eliminates the need for IT to manage and execute campaigns.
