While 2014 is already off to a fast and busy start, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on some of Gigya’s accomplishments and milestones over the past year.
At our core, Gigya’s mission is to help our clients create authentic relationships with their users through permission-based identity data – the more consumers use our technology, the better our clients are able to form mutually beneficial relationships with them. Looking back at our growth, I’m pleased to share that consumers are engaging with our technology in droves.
In 2013, Gigya processed over 800 million logins via our Registration-as-a-Service and Social Login solutions – a 72% increase over 2012, and over 4X greater volume than 2011. This brings Gigya’s total number of processed logins to over 1.5 billion just since 2009.
These numbers have been fueled by Gigya’s massive client growth in 2013 and the development of new and existing relationships with such high-profile brands as AARP, World Wrestling Entertainment, Art.com, Japan Airlines and Tommy Hilfiger. Gigya now works with customers in 46 countries, and employs over 275 Gigyans in Mountain View, Phoenix, Tel Aviv, London, Paris, and Sydney.
Over the past year, our product team also worked tirelessly to develop our recently released Consumer Insights, a first of its kind tool for marketers. Consumer Insights provides marketers with an unprecedented view into consumer identity by aggregating first-party social and behavioral data captured by Gigya products like Social Login, Social Plugins, and Gamification, and visually displaying insights through an actionable dashboard.
While we’re already on our way to another big year at Gigya, I’d like to take a moment to thank our clients, investors and, of course, our growing team of Gigyans for making 2013 truly special.
Take a look at the infographic below to see how Gigya and the use of our technology has grown.
