Frost Radar™: Account-based Marketing Platforms, 2024

A Benchmarking System to Spark Companies to Action - Innovation that Fuels New Deal Flow and Growth Pipelines

The Frost Radar™ on account-based marketing (ABM) platforms analyzes providers that offer technology platforms, tools, and services created to streamline and optimize the execution of ABM strategies. ABM is a strategic approach in which a business targets its marketing efforts on a specific set of high-value accounts through personalized engagement. Some functionalities of ABM platforms include account identification and management, content personalization, multichannel campaign management, engagement and measurement, and collaboration and integration.

This Radar offers a perspective on key industry trends as well as an assessment of 10 growth and innovation leaders. It plots the selected ABM providers based on 10 growth and innovation criteria, comprising qualitative and quantitative factors.

The vertical axis represents the Growth Index (GI). This index is a measure of a company's growth performance and track record, along with its ability to develop and execute a fully aligned growth strategy and vision, a robust growth pipeline system, and effective sales and marketing strategies. To measure growth performance and track record, Frost & Sullivan considers each company’s ABM-related revenues for the years 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023.

The horizontal axis represents the Innovation Index (II). This index is a measure of a company's ability to develop offerings/features/services/solutions (with a clear understanding of disruptive megatrends) that are globally applicable, extensible, pertinent to multiple markets, and aligned with customers' changing needs.

The inclusion criteria for ABM providers comprise:
