Catawiki Chooses Emarsys to Drive Customer Engagement through Automated Personalisation
Emarsys, the largest independent marketing platform company in the world, announces that Catawiki, a global online auction site for special objects, has chosen Emarsys to help drive customer engagement through highly personalised and automated marketing to consumers worldwide. Catawiki is implementing the Emarsys artificial intelligence (AI) optimised marketing platform with its integrated, next-generation data segmentation and analytics capabilities. By doing so, the online auction site aims to bridge the gap between cross-channel marketing and customer experience activities, thereby improving consumers experience and gaining brand loyalty.

In 2011, the Dutch company began holding auctions and grew in revenue by a staggering 45,000 per cent over the next four years. Resulting in the fastest growing technology company in Europe! All items are vetted, and each online auction is monitored by in-house experts. The company provides an easy, secure platform for buyers and sellers to auction items online to a global audience of passionate enthusiasts and collectors. Catawiki holds over 300 auctions each week, selling a vast range of items, from comic books to whiskey to dinosaur bones.
Catawiki plans to utilise the Emarsys platform, CRM Ads, Web Channel, Email and Open- Time Content to embed personalisation, automation and cost efficiency in its marketing campaigns across email and social channels.
