Swrve adds support for OTT TV apps
The expansion of the app-oriented marketing platform highlights OTT’s increasing attractiveness for marketers and Swrve’s continued expansion.
Despite its name, Swrve hasn’t swerved in its evolution from its origins as a marketing and engagement platform for apps.
Instead, it’s taken a series of steps toward its positioning as a customer interaction platform. In 2014, for instance, it added support for iBeacons, which are usually paired with apps. Later that year, Swrve declared itself an open platform that would play nice with others, and it now offers functional integrations with nearly three dozen platforms like Salesforce and Marketo.
And, earlier this year, it announced that its full integration with Oracle’s Eloqua campaign tool added in-app analytics, testing, targeting and messaging to that platform.
This week, the San Francisco-based Swrve is expanding its scope again, announcing that it will now support analytics, testing, marketing and engagement for several over-the-top (OTT) TV platforms — Apple TV, Roku, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV and Chromecast.
