From this idea grew ExactTarget; the global SaaS-based Digital Marketing leader with more than 2,000 employees in 11 offices, spanning five continents. The same entrepreneurial spirit, innovative technology and commitment to client success defined us each and every day as it did back when the company was formed.

The Marketing Cloud was the first of its kind to offer true cross-channel interactive marketing, pairing the strength of Email with additional channels such as SMS, Push, Social and the Web allowing clients to manage at scale, the 1:1 customer journey.
