“Because BlueHornet’s product development is driven by client input, eMS 3.0’s new features reflect a change in the way companies are using e-mail technology,” said Tim Marusich, Digital River’s vice president and general manager of BlueHornet . “Instead of viewing e-mail marketing as a single message delivery vehicle, companies are viewing it as a sophisticated customer relationship tool. It’s becoming the tool of choice for optimizing multi-channel marketing initiatives and complex enterprise communications.”
“eMS 3.0 is a significant product upgrade and signals BlueHornet’s and Digital River’s joint ongoing commitment to delivering sound e-marketing best practices and advanced e-marketing services,” said Joel Ronning, Digital River’s CEO. “We intend to leverage eMS 3.0 across our combined organization to offer our clients more efficient ways to manage their online businesses, build relationships with prospects and customers across multiple channels, and ultimately increase their e-commerce site revenues.”
