Social media management leader’s focus on marketing automation technologies leads to strategic integration

VANCOUVER, BC – February 26, 2020 -- Hootsuite, a global leader in social media management and Silver level member of OraclePartner Network (OPN), today announced an integration with Oracle Eloqua, part of the Oracle Marketing Cloud and one of the industry’s most comprehensive marketing technology ecosystems. The integration will provide customers the ability to sync social data into their marketing automation platform and unite social and digital campaigns.

“Hootsuite is focused on integrating with marketing automation technologies to help organisations get a cross-channel view of their prospects and customers,” said Richard Hungerford, VP Business and Corporate Development at Hootsuite. “We share mutual customers with Oracle who, by integrating social data from Hootsuite into Oracle Eloqua, can add social to their lead scoring programs and help prove the value of their investment into social media.”

The Hootsuite integration with Oracle Eloqua will allow customers to view campaigns and social content together in the Oracle Eloqua calendar, and create new social content directly in Oracle Eloqua to be published through Hootsuite. The integration also brings the interactions customers have with brands’ social profiles into Oracle Eloqua, providing them with a more complete view of the customer journey.

Integrating social data with other marketing platforms enables organizations to create richer customer profiles and uncover actionable insights.
