WPP & Optimizely Team Up

Commitment to delivering optimized digital experiences

Creative transformation company WPP and DXP provider Optimizely have embarked on a global strategic partnership to deliver improved digital experiences to brands and customers. WPP clients can access Optimizely’s full suite of DXP tools and get a smooth integration with Optimizely Web Experimentation and Google Analytics 4 (GA4).

“Powerful creativity and effective media strategy can be wasted if brands do not also prioritize conversion. Optimizely’s platform provides data that allows brands to maximize the chance of driving customers through the ideal journey across channels, and we’re excited to develop a joint offering to take to our shared clients,” said Stephan Pretorius, CTO at WPP.

Elsewhere, Vercel has introduced Next.js Commerce 2.0, Bloomreach and BigCommerce have been recognized by TrustRadius, and the conversation about potential complexities in MACH technology on LinkedIn continues.
