Nissan Selects Unica and TMW for Interactive & Multi-Channel Marketing

Automotive Leader Utilizes Online Campaigns to Drive In-Store Sales

WALTHAM, MA and LONDON--(Marketwire - November 23, 2009) - Unica Corporation (NASDAQ: UNCA), the recognized leader in marketing software solutions, today announced with European direct and digital marketing agency partner, Tullo Marshall Warren (TMW), that Nissan will use the two companies to run its targeted online marketing initiatives in Europe.

Nissan is working with TMW and Unica on its Internet Excellence program across Europe, designed to increase brand awareness, encourage model selection, and ultimately drive increased sales through local dealerships across the continent. The program targets customers and prospects -- via personalized emails -- to engage with Nissan through its website and register to receive news and special offers, ultimately creating a dialogue with local dealers. The program is being rolled out initially in the UK and eventually in more than 20 countries, in multiple languages.

TMW, part of the Creston Group of companies, is providing Unica's interactive marketing software to Nissan as part of its comprehensive eCRM package, which includes analytics, segmentation, campaign management and delivery, reporting delivery and performance measurement. The two companies have been working together for three years and provide complementary services to their customers in marketing automation.

"Unica's software functionality is a perfect fit for blue chip customers like Nissan. Its multi-channel capabilities mean we can rely on its technology to accurately target customers via email, SMS, and direct mail with both timely and relevant communications and offers," said Ben Cooper, CRM Solutions Director, TMW. "Unica will be integral to the success of Nissan's marketing initiatives."

"TMW is well respected throughout Europe for its focus, delivery, and creative content. Unica's technology is well suited to deliver results for TMW's customer campaigns across a variety of media and channels," said Graeme McLaren, head of European partnerships at Unica. "We look forward to working with TMW to deliver and grow this initiative with Nissan, as well as other joint clients."
