Impact Announces New Client Additions as Businesses Put Concerted Focus on Growth Through Partnerships
Partnership Automation leader now fuels enterprise revenue growth for Walmart, TUI and Canva
Impact, the global leader in Partnership Automation, today announced new additions to their growing customer roster. Throughout 2019, Impact has added more than 350 new clients, an increase of more than 50% over last year.
This caps a landmark year for the company, fueled by a US$75 million (approx. AU$108 million) round of funding to support the category creation of Partnership Automation and further development of the company’s award-winning Partnership Cloud™. Following this was growth in their EMEA presence; expansion of the executive team; and prominently, the results of their commissioned study with Forrester Consulting that confirmed companies with mature partnership programs grow overall company revenue nearly 2x as fast as companies with less mature programs.
A few of their recently added clients include:
• Decathlon China
• Easyship (United States and Asia Pacific)
• Helix Sleep
• Smile Direct
• Eve Sleep
• Fit Track
• Luxon Pay
• Virgin Experience Days
“2019 has been a breakout year for Impact, and for the Partnerships category as a whole,” said David A. Yovanno, Impact CEO. “Our industry is at a tipping point. People today are seeking advice and recommendations from other people and businesses they trust, not salespeople or advertising to whom they’ve become numb. Partnerships bring a unique, authentic fit that is proven to resonate with consumers. We’re excited, and look forward to guiding and automating more partnerships for our customers to drive transformational growth for their businesses in 2020.”
“Partnership automation tools from Impact have helped us exponentially increase our volume of partners and consequently grow our revenue,” said Jamie Devlin, Head of Business Development at European tech unicorn Revolut. “Revolut is a company that never stops moving forward and searching for new ideas. We chose to work with Impact because their technology mirrors our own pursuit to deliver the best innovation.”
