A small percentage of leading marketing automation vendors were evaluated on their common characteristics and their performance in technology, business processes, culture, organizational resources and performance metrics. Act-On received the top ranking, “Best,” in three of four categories: ease of deployment, ease of use and overall value.

“Marketing automation is a powerful tool but it’s hard for marketers to select the right systems. The Gleansight report offers objective advice on what to look for and vendor ratings provided by actual users,” said David Raab, contributing analyst and lead author of the report. “Act-On’s performance is something to be proud of.”

“Gleanster’s report solidifies our spot as one of the top vendors in the industry and further validates our approach to the market,” said Shawn Naggiar, chief revenue officer, Act-On Software. “Act-On’s marketing automation platform provides our customers with a non-disruptive transition from email marketing and point solutions to the benefits of marketing automation without a complete process overhaul, deep technical project management or professional services. The result is accelerated adoption and a faster return on investment which has proven to be a key differentiator with decision makers.”
