dotdigital’s non-executive chairman Frank Beechinor-Collins will tell shareholders at Tuesday’s annual general meeting that the continued progress is being driven by “strong international sales and growing demand for dotmailer in the ecommerce market”.
In fact, the latter recently launched a new version of Magento 2.2.2 which incorporates the dotmailer connector – allows platforms to integrate ecommerce data with dotmailer – in the new code base.
“This feature positions dotmailer as Magento's preferred partner for marketing automation and allows its global user-base to register for, download and incorporate the dotmailer product into their operations within moments of taking the decision to do so,” Beechinor-Collins will say.
Last month, dotdigital unveiled the £11mln acquisition of customer engagement firm Comapi.
The integration of Comapi’s messaging capabilities into the dotmailer platform is well underway and is expected to be launched at dotdigital’s annual summit in the spring.
On top of that, Comapi has also recent won a “significant contract” which helps to underpin its revenue expectations for 2018.
“The board is very pleased with the group's current progress and remains confident in achieving its ambitious growth plans,” the chairman will tell investors.
