Economist Intelligence Unit Accelerates Revenue Growth With Marketo
Productivity Equivalent of Two Full Time Additional Team Members

SAN MATEO, Calif. and DUBLIN, Ireland, Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Marketo, the leading provider of cloud-based marketing software, today announced that the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), a subsidiary of the Economist Group, has deployed Marketo worldwide to power growth. By improving marketing effectiveness, and implementing best practices to the EIU's lead nurturing, scoring, and sales insight, the firm estimates the increased efficiency equates to the productivity of two extra FTEs.

"We wanted a mature solution that would enable us to bridge the gap between sales and marketing through delivery of pre-qualified and scored leads to drive greater conversion rate," said Holly Donahue, senior marketing manager, Economist Intelligence Unit. "We evaluated several leading marketing automation solutions, and selected Marketo based on its rich functionality and ease of use."

The EIU has one of the largest and most experienced analysis teams in the world. Its 100 full-time country experts and economists have a thorough grounding in economics, politics, risk and industry. As the leading provider of forecasting and advisory services, the EIU wasn't short of sales leads, but rather lacked the marketing automation and sales insight to manage them. A large number of leads were regularly generated from various channels, including events, the Web, and webinars. These were then manually forwarded onto the EIU sales teams globally via email or spreadsheets for follow-up. However, the sales teams had to devote hours sifting through low quality leads to find lucrative sales opportunities

"Using the Marketo platform, our entire organization now has a single, complete view of each lead, and its progress through the sales process. This allows us to more effectively manage our sales pipeline, close more business, and close business more quickly," continued Donahue.  "The EIU marketing team relies on Marketo to deliver leads to a large global sales team in a quick and efficient manner. It's the productivity equivalent of two full time additional team members."

Marketo also integrates with the EIU's existing CRM system from Salesforce.com, and has a similar to the look and feel, enabling the EIU's sales teams to swap between systems seamlessly. Over time, the EIU will also integrate social marketing feeds into Marketo from LinkedIn, Twitter, and other sources, driving even broader and deeper prospect insight.
