Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — Gigya, the leader in social infrastructure for online businesses, today announced that its suite of social technology for websites now reaches more than one billion users per month. Gigya’s landmark achievement parallels the company’s growth in new clients over the past year, with hundreds of enterprises including more than 40 percent of comScore’s top 100 web properties deploying Gigya’s on-site social technology.
In addition to expanding its reach through products such as Social Login, Comments, Share and Gamification, Gigya also saw exponential growth in key business metrics. The company’s 2011 sales more than tripled year-over-year and the average new deal size nearly doubled.
As businesses increasingly seek to understand their audiences and increase engagement, Gigya stands as the only vendor to offer a full suite of social technology for websites that creates immersive social experiences for users and provides unparalleled customer insights for businesses. By implementing Gigya’s technology, clients are able to keep users engaged with on-site content while sharing to their social feeds – and see real ROI by leveraging permission-based social data.
“The last year has been incredible for Gigya”, said Patrick Salyer, CEO of Gigya. “By expanding our product suite and offering enterprise-class service to clients, Gigya has differentiated itself as the only vendor in the market to offer everything a site needs to be social.”
“Providers of social infrastructure allow companies to truly engage in social CRM”, said Jake Wengroff, Global Director of Social Media Strategy and Research at Frost & Sullivan. “The analytics and insights of the social graph, once brought into a company's website, provide marketers with rich data which can be used to fuel content strategies, advertising creative and ad serving, and product recommendations.”
Gigya remains poised to continue growing at a rapid clip in 2012 focusing on its Social Identity Management Platform and helping businesses leverage permission-based social data.
Gigya’s mission is to socialize the rest of the web. The company provides websites with a complete social infrastructure that creates immersive social experiences for users and provides unparalleled customer insights for businesses.
We provide businesses like ABC, Pepsi and Verizon with a comprehensive solution to socialize their online properties.
