London, November 12, 2012 - ClickSquared today announced that Excentus, creator of the patented cents per gallon price roll-down at the pump concept and leading loyalty marketing program provider, has selected ClickSquared's Cross-Channel Marketing Hub to support the company's customer engagement and cross-channel marketing efforts.

We don't need to worry about expensive on-site software; the platform is incredibly intuitive and allows us to get up and running quickly to meet our short-term goals and keep on track for our long-term success."

"We're honored by Excentus' decision to make ClickSquared the backbone for its cross-channel marketing initiatives. Given the company's leadership in loyalty marketing, it's a tremendous validation for our offering," said Wayne Townsend, CEO. "Everyone at Excentus gets the importance of building strong, data-driven relationships, and we couldn't be more excited to help them execute on their vision, report on their success and get them there fast without compromising their capabilities down the road."
