“We’ll soon democratize the use of AI […]”
In June 2017, Sidetrade Group announced the final acquisition of C-Radar, the French specialist start-up in B2B Predictive Marketing. By exploiting algorithm-driven analysis of 23 million company data signals daily, C-Radar allows Marketing and Sales Departments to better understand their markets and identify relevant leads. The acquisition came a few months in the wake of Sidetrade’s acquisition of BrightTarget and Iko System, two specialist start-ups in Sales and Predictive Marketing, further strengthening Sidetrade’s positioning within Artificial Intelligence for the client-sales cycle.
Olivier Novasque, Founder and CEO of Sidetrade, states:
“This excellent first half-year revenue is the direct result of the impact of the investments we’ve made and is clear evidence of how well-placed is the Group’s strategic positioning within Artificial Intelligence. C-Radar is the third acquisition we’ve made in less than six months, giving us a strong technological head-start in our goal to position Sidetrade as a unique market player in the use of Artificial Intelligence dedicated to customer relationship. In the very near future, the best-performing companies will employ AI on a daily basis to boost sales and accelerate cash-flow generation. We’ll soon democratize the use of AI for all Marketing, Sales and Finance departments.”
The Board is confident of its ability to achieve further growth across 2017.
