ST. LOUIS (April 18, 2016) – Perficient, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT) (“Perficient”), the leading digital transformation consulting firm serving Global 2000® and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, today announced the launch of Perficient Digital, a full-service digital agency focused on improving customer experiences – the defining strategic imperative in the marketplace for companies today.
“We’re excited about the launch of Perficient Digital and the added depth it brings to Perficient’s digital experience capabilities,” said Jeffrey Davis, Perficient’s president and chief executive officer. “Many consultancies bolt on creative offerings as an afterthought, while most agencies’ fundamental flaw is an ability to dazzle but not deliver. Key to Perficient’s success has been our unique ability to couple brilliant creative with the deep and broad technical expertise required for solution implementation. With the creation of this agency, Perficient reinforces and accelerates our capacity to deliver creative solutions that scale across complex businesses; to craft nimble, differentiated solutions; and to deliver full digital transformation for our clients.”
Comprised of nearly 200 digital and brand strategists, designers, marketers, data analysts and developers, Perficient Digital blends the strategic imagination of an agency with the deep technical acumen of Perficient’s established consultancy to deliver exceptional customer experiences for the world’s biggest brands.
The agency’s six core disciplines – content studio, digital marketing, experience design, experience platforms, strategy and planning, and mobile and emerging technology – incorporate these experiences across a variety of leading technology platforms including Adobe, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, and Salesforce.
“Great brands are no longer ‘built’ with a bull-horn. They are the sum of every interaction a customer has with an enterprise,” said Ed Hoffman, vice president of digital experience solutions at Perficient. “In the age where customer is king, technology and customer experience are inextricably linked. Perficient, with its Perficient Digital agency, is uniquely qualified to design, develop and deploy amazing customer experience solutions that enable the world’s leading enterprises to digitally transform.”
Perficient has been providing experience design and usability expertise to its clients for more than 15 years. Two recent acquisitions helped complete the foundation for Perficient Digital and enhanced Perficient’s digital strategy, creative services, and marketing expertise. In early 2015, the company acquired Zeon Solutions, Inc., an information technology firm specializing in the development, implementation, and support of e-commerce solutions. In late 2015, Perficient purchased the assets of Enlighten, a digital agency with expertise in the development, implementation, integration, and support of digital experience solutions.
Perficient partners with leading technology vendors to provide business optimization, digital experience, industry-driven technology solutions, and support across many practice areas. Perficient is also at the forefront of industry thought leadership on digital transformation – a means of modernizing the systems that create, deliver, and sustain meaningful customer experiences.
