Having already made a name for itself in Web CMS and advertising, Atex is venturing into the social media realm with its new product, Atex Engage.

Introducing Atex Engage

Knowing your targeted audience, fans and customers on a personal level is a key part of today’s digital marketing world. Marketers have a toolbox full of methods to collect this information and now they have one more in Atex Engage. 

The cloud-based application allows companies to add quizzes, contests, polls and online surveys to websites and advertising campaigns. The information gathered from these tools and the embedded metadata contained can be used by content creators, sales and marketing for targeting and analytics purposes. Atex Engage can be either integrated with Atex’s Web CMS platform through a plug-in or micro-site creation, or as a stand-alone product.

Pricing is based on a per-use model, dependent on web traffic and number of websites or social media outlets using the software. This is the first product released in the new Atex Product Organization -- designed to improve audience interaction, targeting, analysis and improve the overall customer experience. Additional products will be released in the coming months.
