Bateman Group Welcomes Animoto, Get Satisfaction, Heroku and Zenprise to Client Roster

2012 continues to surface exciting new business opportunities for Bateman Group. The pitches of the last few months have produced some of the most thoughtful and creative proposals I’ve ever had the pleasure of being a part of. And the results certainly speak for themselves. The teams in San Francisco and (very flooded) Brooklyn have truly been killing it lately and I have the pleasure of sharing the fruits of our collective efforts with you today.

So, without further ado,  today we publicly announced our selection as agency of record by four exceptional companies, all of which were won by fighting our way to the top of highly competitive agency reviews. These recent wins add a flagship account to several of Bateman Group’s key practice areas, including Mobility, Security, Enterprise Cloud Computing, Social Business and Consumer Internet Services. New clients announced today include:

Headquartered in New York City with offices in San Francisco, Animoto is a video creation service (online and mobile) that makes it easy and fun for anyone to create and share extraordinary videos using their own pictures, video clips, words and music. The Animoto account team is split evenly between our San Francisco and Brooklyn offices and very excited to be working with this beloved brand.

Get Satisfaction is the leading customer engagement platform that helps companies build better relationships with their customers and prospects. Based in San Francisco, “Get Sat” is our closest client by proximity to date — four floors beneath us at the Hamm’s Building on 1550 Bryant Street! I’m painfully aware that now I will have no excuse for being late for meetings…

Also based in San Francisco, Heroku, a salesforce.com company, provides the industry’s leading platform-as-a-service (PaaS) for building, deploying, and running cloud applications. Already a legendary brand among developers, Heroku was looking to hire its first agency partner to spread the word about their steady movement into the enterprise. They selected Bateman in August and we kicked off things with a bang with the successful launch of their Enterprise Java Service at our first Dreamforce in September. Heroku is amazing addition to our Cloud Computing practice and we love being a part of the salesforce.com Global PR team too.

Our most recent win, we kicked off work just last week for Zenprise, the very hot secure mobile device management solution company based in Redwood City, Calif. Zenprise is a perfect fit for our strong experience in enterprise mobility and security and we’re thrilled to be working with the exceptional marketing team over there.

Please join me in wishing all of them a warm welcome to the Bateman Group client roster!
