Gigya Finishes 2013 on Torrid Pace, Processed More Than 800 Million Logins in Single Year

Connected Consumer Management Leader Expands Global Presence in Paris and Sydney to Support World Wide Demand

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/20/14 -- Gigya, the Connected Consumer Management Suite, today announced that it processed over 800 million logins via its Registration-as-a-Service and Social Login products across Gigya client websites and applications -- a 72 percent increase over 2012. Since 2009, Gigya has processed more than 1.5 billion logins.

The company also announced that it has expanded its international presence in Paris, France and Sydney, Australia to meet global demand for its technology. During the calendar year, the company also expanded its presence in the U.S. and Israel, more than doubling its employee base from 2012. The company now employs 275 people in its offices in Mountain View, Tel Aviv, London, Paris, and Sydney as well as in its recently opened Phoenix office.

Most recently, Gigya named Patrick McCue as the company's new Vice President of Global Channels and Alliances. McCue comes to Gigya from ExactTarget, a Salesforce.com company, where he was Vice President of Global Channels.

Gigya also saw massive client growth in 2013, and now works with customers in 46 countries around the world. The company, which counts more than 700 of the world's largest businesses as its customers, added major brands in 2013 including AARP, World Wrestling Entertainment, Art.com, Japan Airlines and Tommy Hilfiger. Gigya also expanded its relationships with hundreds of existing customers that chose to implement additional products from Gigya's platform.

The company's aggressive expansion was fueled in part by a $25 million round of funding led by Greenspring Associates as well as existing Gigya investors including Benchmark Capital, Mayfield Fund, DAG Ventures and Advance Publications.

2013 was also a year of incredible innovation at Gigya. During the year, Gigya's product team developed the recently released its Consumer Insights dashboard, a groundbreaking tool that provides marketers with an unprecedented view into consumer identities by aggregating first-party social and behavioral data captured by Gigya products like Social Login, Share and Gamification, and visually displaying insights via an actionable dashboard.

Gigya also helped bring identity to the "internet of things" in 2013 through remarkable implementations with leading brands such as KLM, Capcom, PBS, and Showtime. With KLM, Gigya worked with the airline to create its "Meet & Seat" program which allows users to see who else is on their flight. When customers choose to opt in to Meet & Seat, KLM prompts them to log in socially and share their Facebook, Google+ or LinkedIn profile details with other participating passengers. Flyers can see the profile details of other participating users, as well as their seat assignments and can choose seat assignments next to other passengers based on their social profile information.

"Gigya had an amazing year in 2013," said Patrick Salyer, CEO of Gigya. "We added customers and offices around the globe and use of our technology exploded. We already have some exciting developments in store for 2014 and we have the team, products and momentum to own the consumer identity management market this year."

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
