Wow! Apparently, the world really does pay attention when you sign a client whose products are sold in more than 80 countries, particularly when that company is listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and has recently announced a 37 percent increase in operating profit on annual revenues of $770 million.
Such is the case with L’Occitane, one of Monetate’s newest and most global clients. The news story that we put out this morning was tweeted faster than any previous wire release we have done. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the company’s Director of E-Commerce & CRM, Matt Kritzer, had some very nice things to say about Monetate:
“We chose Monetate after taking a close look at all the competing solutions. The power of the Monetate solution, combined with its ease of use and integration, was what won us over.”
It’s always a rush when clients say good things about what you’re selling and they’re buying (you might have noticed some new quotes on the web site from our steadily growing client list). And it’s hugely exciting to see word of mouth spread round the world.
BTW, if you’re not hip to who or what L’Occitane is, check out the entry in Wikipedia. It’s a great story of enterprise and innovation that positively reflects both traditional and progressive values.
