BEAVERTON, OR–(Marketwired – Jul 29, 2013) – Act-On Software, a leading provider of cloud-based integrated marketing automation software, today announced its revenue growth figures and corporate highlights for Q2 2013, showcasing another quarter of rapid growth. Multiple factors contributed to Act-On’s Q2 success, including product innovation, customer demand, and international expansion. During the second quarter, Act-On’s revenues were over 214 percent of revenues during the same quarter last year. This indicates the mid-market’s growing need for a scalable and cost-efficient marketing automation suite tailored to fit their business-specific needs. Customer adoption and usage of the Act-On platform are nearly 3 times what they were during the same quarter last year. Today, the Act-On platform is powering over a billion marketing touch points per month for over 1600 customers.

“We have always had a keen focus on the mid-market and seek to serve small marketing teams with big ambitions,” said Raghu Raghavan, founder and CEO of Act-On Software. “We are seeing a wide-scale adoption of the platform, and our substantial growth trajectory speaks to this.”

Act-On Continues to Innovate with Act-On Inbound and Act-On Mobile

In Q2 Act-On launched Act-On Inbound, a new suite of inbound capabilities that allow users to optimize their content, blog, and website for search engines, manage keywords for both SEO and AdWords, and accurately measure the effectiveness of these campaigns from click to revenue.
