Madras will collaborate with Macy’s Marketing teams to support the retail giant’s high-volume e-commerce marketing operations including executing select digital strategies, on and offline advertising, and content development
NEW YORK, NY (September 25, 2018) – After a rigorous review process Macy’s has partnered with Madras Global to support creative automation work for Macy’s e-commerce platform, in collaboration with Macy’s existing internal teams. Madras was tapped to provide high-volume digital advertising and marketing services, from high-speed retouching to delivery of email and site content that will support the entire Macy’s and Macys.com portfolio.
Since 2011, portions of the creative production and retouching work for Macys.com had been handled by Madras’ sister company, 2adpro. In addition to the high-volume, high-speed delivery operation they have been accustomed to, this new partnership gives Macy’s access to Madras’ big brand strategic and creative teams.
“Madras was built to enable our clients to deploy their marketing dollars as efficiently and effectively as possible while continuously delivering quality content,” said Fred Schuster, CEO of Madras. “We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Macy’s and to help them confront the challenges of a rapidly changing retail world.”
“We are excited to continue to build on our relationship with Madras as part of this next evolution of our creative partnership,” said Chuck Hansen, group vice-president, Marketing Operations for Macy’s. “Our always on approach to marketing with the goal of creating customized and relevant connections with our customers will be further enabled by the scalability and speed of delivery that Madras brings to the table.”
The expanded partnership plays into Madras’ strengths and unique operating model that combines lower priced and high-volume creative automation via their Indian operation, and high-value strategic and creative resources in New York and London. A critical component of this operation is Madras’ technology platform, called JDX, that allows dynamic workflow and asset management collaboration between Madras and Macy’s.
