Company drives deeper digital engagement with consumers
using Salesforce Marketing Cloud’s Journey Builder

SAN FRANCISCO—September 16, 2015—Salesforce [NYSE: CRM], the Customer Success Platform and world’s #1 CRM company, announced today that Mattel, Inc. has implemented the Salesforce Marketing Cloud, helping the iconic toymaker to connect in new ways with millions of consumers, guiding them on journeys across its brands globally and from any device.
“For 70 years, parents have trusted Mattel to create safe, engaging play experiences for children and families,” said Carlson Choi, Vice President and head of Mattel’s Digital Initiatives Group. “Today, we’re harnessing that experience to create an equally safe and engaging digital ecosystem for our consumers. Using Salesforce is key to this process, helping us map a digital journey for parents and children based on how they engage with Mattel’s apps, digital content and toys.”

The Salesforce Marketing Cloud gives digital marketers the tools needed to create exceptional brand experiences and service consumers as they move between channels, products and brands. Mattel will use Journey Builder, a core service in Marketing Cloud, to deliver personalized, targeted messages that will lead Mattel shoppers on personalized journeys across every stage of the customer lifecycle, from the physical store to digital experiences.

“In a competitive consumer market, Salesforce will help Mattel stand out and guide their consumers on journeys across channels and devices,” said Scott McCorkle, CEO of Marketing Cloud. “Few companies inspire creative imagination like Mattel, and Journey Builder’s interface will make it easy for the company to visualize and map the path of each consumer’s journey as they grow up with Mattel and explore new brands and gaming options.”
