Simple Will Leverage Microsoft’s Technology to Power It’s Intelligent Marketing Platform as It Transforms How Brands Use Artificial Intelligence to Create Exceptional Customer Experiences
Simple, a leading Agile Marketing and Marketing Resource Planning Platform, announced plans to partner with Microsoft and adopt its end-to-end intelligent cloud to power its Intelligent Marketing Platform, aiming to disrupt Marketing Resource Management software market.
Among the first independent software vendors to build atop the Microsoft Business Applications Platform, Simple has developed its Intelligent Marketing Platform, combining the functionality of PowerApps, Dynamics 365 for Marketing and Office 365, to help redefine Marketing Resource Management.
Utilizing the new capabilities offered with Power BI – the Common Data Service for Analytics — Simple is enabling organizations to rapidly integrate marketing data from multiple sources within its Intelligent Marketing Platform to generate insights and improve marketing performance.
At the time of this announcement, Simple CEO, Aden Forrest, said, “Simple’s Intelligent Marketing Platform injects artificial intelligence into upstream marketing planning, where there is none today — giving CMOs new insight into how they can maximize the return on marketing investment for the entire organization.”
Simple’s Intelligent Marketing Platform is an upstream planning solution that not only enables brands to maximize the value of their marketing dollar at every touchpoint across the organization but also to boost the effectiveness of their technology budget.
