1,000 Clients Live on ReachLocal’s ReachEdge Platform in its First Six Months

ReachLocal Inc. (NASDAQ:RLOC), a leader in powering local online marketing for small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), today announced that 1,000 clients have gone live on the ReachEdge marketing automation platform since its launch in the United States and Canada in September 2013.

As the cornerstone of the company’s new marketing software-as-a-service (SaaS) suite of products, ReachEdge includes proprietary marketing automation and lead capture and tracking technology, all delivered by a responsive website design that optimizes the desktop and mobile user experience. With this technology, businesses can convert more visitors into leads and more leads into paying customers.

Fifty-five percent of the first 1,000 clients who have gone live on ReachEdge are new ReachLocal customers. ReachEdge has seen adoption in North America by businesses in the healthcare, automotive, home services, legal and education industries and will be introduced in Australia and the UK during 2014.

On average, ReachEdge powered businesses increased their Google Quality Score by nearly seven percent 60 days after implementing ReachEdge. Nearly 25 percent of ReachEdge powered businesses increased their Google Quality Score by more than 15 percent 60 days after implementing ReachEdge. In addition, the typical ReachEdge powered business created a website with 21 total pages, 10 of which consist of original content from ReachLocal.

“Marketing automation has become imperative as companies support all the different channels across the Web and mobile,” said BIA/Kelsey Vice President and Senior Analyst Peter Krasilovsky. “Until recently, marketing automation has been driven by large enterprises, but now local businesses can participate as well, with products such as ReachLocal’s ReachEdge. It offers a simple solution to automate the entire lead capture and management process, helping SMBs allocate marketing dollars more efficiently by focusing on the activities that generate the most revenue.”

Local merchants relying on online marketing as a primary method of lead generation often struggle to manage multiple discrete products from different vendors. ReachEdge solves this complex problem by integrating website, advertising, SEO, lead management and tracking all into a single automated platform that enables business owners to optimize and measure their entire customer acquisition process.

“The keen customer interest in ReachEdge demonstrates the very real need for an integrated technology platform to analyze and automate the entire customer acquisition lifecycle,” said ReachLocal President Josh Claman. “We look forward to expanding our reach to new markets and becoming the digital marketing foundation for many thousands of forward-thinking customers.”

"Tintri focuses on the Ops side of the DevOps, which basically is pushing more and more of the accessibility of the infrastructure to the developers and trying to get behind the scenes," explained Dhiraj Sehgal of Tintri in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages. An increasing number of data engineers and data scientists use a variety of platforms and advanced analytics languages such as SAS, R, Python and Java, as well as frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to...
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon.

The material was delivered interac...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
