The Initial Campaign

Ping Identity needed to develop a relationship with a demand generation partner who was able to quickly respond to their inbound and outbound marketing requirements across EMEA. They engaged IRSDirect on a one month trial campaign, during which we demonstrated our in depth understanding of Ping Identity's technology and our ability to deliver the message to prospects and engage with them to uncover business opportunities

The Relationship

The impressive results of the initial campaign led to an ongoing monthly relationship targeting enterprise companies primarily within the manufacturing, financial services and healthcare sectors. IRS provides Ping Identity with a range of services including outbound demand generation targeting new business growth and inbound marketing responses to support their presence in EMEA.

IRS has direct access to Ping Identity's Salesforce CRM system, allowing us to respond to the business' changing requirements in real-time. This also delivers a seamless share of information as all IRS communication records are immediately visible by all Ping Identity sales and marketing team members and vice versa.
