ZEE5 announces partnership with Israel-based Optimove
ZEE5, the fastest growing OTT platform in the country, today announced a strategic tie-up with Optimove, to bolster the performance of the platform based on a suite of services backed by insight, engagement & optimisation.
Under the partnership, Optimove will work closely with ZEE5 to build a customer data platform for the 61.5 million-strong monthly active user base that the platform has garnered over the past year and a half. With its advanced marketing tech solutions, Optimove will micro-segment ZEE5’s customer base by customer lifecycles broken down by behavioural patterns and other predictive data generated by Optimove’s Relationship Marketing Hub. The insights gained from the customer model will be collated by the platform across its 100,000+ hours of content and used to personalize content, offers, recommendations and more. By autonomously transforming customer data into actionable insight, Optimove will orchestrate hyper-segmented campaigns, helping drive measurable growth. Optimove will also provide strategic thought leadership on driving engagement for ZEE5.
Pini Yakuel, Founder & CEO, Optimove said, “ZEE5 is one of India’s leading brands in entertainment. I’m certain that the partnership between ZEE5 and Optimove will yield great success and will help address the growing challenge of customer engagement and personalization in the competitive entertainment market in India.
