Online CRM technology and consulting provider artegic AG expands its delivery network with a messaging service for WhatsApp. WhatsApp’s 500 million users make it number one in the mobile messaging market, followed by Chinese provider WeChat with almost 400 million monthly users.
Online shopping via mobile terminal devices will be the norm in the medium term, according to 60.1 % of German retail companies questioned in artegic's current study "Online Dialogue Marketing in Retail 2016". More than half of the companies believe that the turnovers from m-commerce and e-commerce will equalise. Front runner among the online channels continues to be email marketing, currently used by 70.2 % of retail companies and soon by 83.1 %. The Online Dialogue Marketing in Retail 2016 study deals with the current use and future developments in online dialogue marketing for retail, as well as the evaluation of trend topics, such as mobile and Big Data.

With its current version of the ELAINE FIVE Online Dialog CRM, technology provider artegic is presenting a new solution for legally compliant marketing based on behaviour profiles.
