Shanghai, Atlanta, September 15, 2009 — CDC Software Corporation (NASDAQ: CDCS), a global provider of enterprise software applications and services, announced the new version of Pivotal eMarketing, an email marketing solution for the Pivotal CRM 6.0 platform that helps sales and marketing professionals better target customers and prospects, personalize communication, increase lead generation activities and improve customer satisfaction.
Pivotal eMarketing (v6.0.4) is an email blasting engine that allows users to send personalized HTML or text-based email communications to customers and prospects within the Pivotal CRM platform. Other benefits include the ability to personalize communications, track the success rate of communications, drive leads to web pages and track click-throughs, easily build customized email campaigns, automate common messages with recurring campaigns, comply with unsubscribe and opt-out/in legislation, and avoid blacklisting through batch delivery of emails.
