The Bedrock Data journey began in 2012 at HubSpot, where the founders worked at the time. HubSpot collects a lot of data on prospects, conversions and sales, but there was no way for HubSpot customers to integrate it into most of their other business data. So, with the blessing of HubSpot, the founders decided to create their own solution and eventually form a new company.
‘You can’t make business decisions today unless your teams have up-to-date and accurate data at their disposal,’ said John Marcus, co-founder and CEO of Bedrock Data. ‘Bedrock Data will help ensure that your data-and your business-are not irrelevant. ”
‘The average company uses between five and nine different SaaS solutions, and this has doubled from just a few years ago,’ said Graham Brooks, Partner, 406 Aventures ‘SaaS companies are regularly losing sales due to lack of integration, and the number of points they need to integrate is growing exponentially. Bedrock Data enables companies to deliver all the necessary integrations without having to distract their engineering team every time a new SaaS solution comes on the market or the API changes. ”
‘So many companies are putting off this type of data integration because it’s daunting and simply never get around to it,’ said Gerry Murray, Research Manager at IDC Market Intelligence. ‘Integrated marketing data, however, offers substantial advantages, including the ability to identify the best potential customers early on in their purchase process and to reduce acquisition costs. It is therefore an investment that can easily pay off to modern marketers. ”
Mike Volpe, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) at HubSpot, Inc. , Bedrock Data strategic partner, ‘Bedrock Data integrations help marketers in two ways: first, by syncing and updating qualified leads to sales, and second, by providing marketers with the revenue and financial cost data they need to make accurate, data-driven decisions. Bedrock has already helped hundreds of HubSpot customers, including our INBOUND conference. ”
At launch, Bedrock Data customers already include HubSpot’s INBOUND, Eventbrite, Bigcommerce, Contactually, OBP Medical, Inc. Socious and more than 250 others
‘Bedrock Data is extremely important to our marketing efforts as it enables us to keep critical data from our CRM. Constantly informing our marketing campaigns,” said Matthew Traub, CMO of Bedrock Data customer OBP Medical, Inc.
Josh Paul, Marketing Director at Socious, another Bedrock Data customer, said, “A large part of our success with Bedrock is not only technology, but also the people involved. I know they’re there to answer questions and help bring our integration to the next level. ”
