Through the acquisition, additions to the Spredfast product portfolio include a sophisticated social campaign builder, enriched social CRM data, and expanded integrations.

In the last 18 months, we've been named a Leader in the Forrester SRP Wave, completed a successful merger with Mass Relevance, launched three new products, announced inaugural membership in partner programs with Pinterest, Tumblr, and Facebook, and seen unprecedented company growth. It's an exciting time to be on this rocket ship."
