Gigya Named a Winner on CRM Watchlist for Third Time

Customer Identity Management Platform Honored Alongside Adobe, Oracle and Salesforce.com

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - March 03, 2016) - Gigya, the Leader in Customer Identity Management, today announced that it has been named a Winner on the prominent 2016 CRM Watchlist. Sharing the accomplishment with technology giants such as Adobe, Microsoft, Oracle, Salesforce.com and SAP, Gigya was selected for its incredible impact on the customer identity and access management (CIAM) market, and for helping its customers achieve identity-driven business results. 2016 marks the second consecutive year and third time overall that Gigya has received the honor.

Gigya's Customer Identity Management platform helps companies build better customer relationships by turning unknown site visitors into known, loyal and engaged customers. With Gigya's technology, businesses increase registrations and identify customers across devices, consolidate data into rich customer profiles and provide better services, products and experiences by integrating data into marketing and service applications.

"This year, 131 companies submitted their questionnaires. I have to admit, I made this year's scoring a couple of magnitudes tougher than last year. To have an impact, the company has to be pretty much a complete company who has been doing this long enough to have established a rhythm that leads to impact," said Paul Greenberg, the CRM Watchlist's curator and founder. "The company has to be well rounded -- it has financial stability, solid management, excellent products and services, culture and a strong partner ecosystem to help sustain its efforts. It has to have a clear vision and mission and also clear-cut strategies to get external forces -- customers, analysts, journalists, prospects, etc. -- engaged."

"We're incredibly proud to be listed as a Winner on the CRM Watchlist once again," said Patrick Salyer, Gigya's CEO. "As customer experience (CX) continues to converge with security, and identity becomes core to all consumer-facing business initiatives, we're poised to make an even bigger impact moving forward."
