Marketo Named CRM Watchlist Winner Two Years Running

Company Honored as a Top Marketing Software Provider, Also Powers Revenue Growth for Fellow CRM Watchlist 2012 Winners

SAN MATEO, Calif. (January 30, 2012) – Marketo, the fastest-growing provider in Revenue Performance Management (RPM) technology, announced today it has been named a top marketing solution by CRM thought leader Paul Greenberg on the 2012 CRM Watchlist. The company has won this prestigious recognition for two consecutive years. Marketo’s marketing automation and sales effectiveness solutions power the revenue growth of several fellow 2012 CRM Watchlist winners, including, the Pedowitz Group and Zuora.  The honor comes on the heels of Marketo’s recent recognition by Forbes on its annual America’s Most Promising Companies list and the Silicon Valley Business Times naming Marketo the fastest-growing company in Silicon Valley.

Paul Greenberg, author of the best-selling CRM at the Speed of Light: Social CRM Strategies, Tools, and Techniques for Engaging Your Customers, praised Marketo’s presence in the fast-moving marketplace.  In his ZDNet “Social CRM: The Conversation” column, Greenberg writes:

“Marketo started out in the small and medium business (SMB) marketing automation space. But responding to the increased interest of the enterprise in marketing automation and at the same time, recognizing that there was a gap in thought leadership that could be filled, they moved quickly to focus on the enterprise as their key market and at the same time, grab the thought leadership in order to capture the mindshare that was necessary in a fast moving market.”

Marketo is committed to transforming the CRM environment – a place where sales and marketing professionals spend the majority of their day – into the ultimate dashboard of revenue performance, by giving everyone from executives to on-the-ground professionals the ability to center every activity on the goal of driving more revenue.

“Everything we do is laser-focused on empowering any business to grow revenue in completely measurable and unprecedented ways,” said Phil Fernandez, Marketo’s CEO. “We are grateful to be recognized on the CRM Watchlist for our thought leadership in this area, as well as for our technology. If you look at any company making revenue-growth headlines, odds are they are a happy Marketo customer,” said Fernandez. “This year, we’re aiming to perfect those odds.”
