Brookfield, Wis.—August 7, 2012—Cilio Technologies, a specialist in automated order distribution and management of installed sales for the building materials industry, announced that the Cilio Partners Portal, a Web-based platform for retail home improvement stores and manufacturers, integrates seamlessly with the Constant Contact suite of online marketing tools.
“Many Cilio Partners Portal manufacturers already use Constant Contact to promote their products and services to their customers,” said Randy Olejnik, President of Cilio Technologies. “It was only natural that we would bring the powerful abilities in each tool together to create a single, seamless customer and order management environment.”
The Cilio Partners Portal cloud-based platform allows home improvement stores and manufacturers to automatically track and manage installed sales orders throughout their trading partner networks. Manufacturers using the Cilio Partners Portal can now seamlessly integrate Constant Contact with the retail process to better understand and support their fabricator and dealer networks; and build new and enhance existing sales channels through incentives and promotions. In addition, the integration with Constant Contact creates a virtual “marketing engine” for the manufacturer to share leads with and manage promotions and incentives to its fabricator and dealer networks. Manufacturers can also leverage the Partners Portal’s built-in promotion and incentives capability by creating targeted email campaigns. Contacts can be categorized in default categories such as fabricators, dealers or remodelers to support highly targeted campaigns through Constant Contact.
“Our tools are proven to help businesses win customers and build successful relationships with them,” said Rick Jensen, Senior Vice President and Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Constant Contact. “We are pleased that Cilio chose to integrate with Constant Contact to provide its clients with our online marketing tools, and we look forward to working together to be an even bigger factor in their customers’ success.”
