Epsilon International, the UK arm of the world’s biggest email marketing company, has won a trio of new business – AOL Broadband, Hasbro and NSPCC.

Appointed without a pitch, AOL Broadband, part of the Carphone Warehouse Group Plc, has tasked Epsilon with full-service email deployment and strategic support, which will enable the portal to develop more sophisticated and effective email marketing communications to its two million customers.

Following a pitch, Hasbro has appointed Epsilon to manage all the toy and game manufacturer’s email delivery, campaign deployment and account management. A major part of the brief is to create email campaigns that will send shoppers to HasbroToyShop.co.uk.

Following a pitch, children’s charity NSPCC has also appointed Epsilon.

Ian Hitt, managing director of Epsilon International, said: “These three organisations are household names and each has recognised how Epsilon can deliver a measurable return on investment at a time when marketing budgets are under pressure.

“AOL Broadband and Hasbro see Epsilon’s market-leading technology and, most importantly our investment and commitment to service, as critical qualities. We're delighted to have them on-board and look forward to a long-term partnership.”

Claire Pritchard, senior manager, data strategy at AOL Broadband, said: "Providers, AOL Broadband, currently helps almost two million customers connect to the internet. We are delighted to have chosen Epsilon to provide the technology that manages our many customer relationships through personalised email communications and timely dialogue."

Helen Genia, online manager at Hasbro, said “We chose Epsilon because of its demonstrable retail experience and notably its relationships with other blue chip retailers. The principal objective of our email programme is to drive our key customers to HasbroToyShop.co.uk.”
Epsilon International clients include: Electronic Arts, Ogilvy, P&G and John Lewis.
