Advantages of Emarsys

  • Easy drag-and-drop setup
  • Intuitive interface
  • Automated and multichannel-driven
  • Powerful AI and proven user journey templates
  • Strategic dashboard for continuous insighs

SAP Emarsys activates the data from your target audience, allowing you to effortlessly create strategic marketing campaigns and leverage the available data.

  • When do visitors use certain platforms?
  • How do they use your website?
  • How often do they view a certain type of product?

Emarsys can use this information to create targeted marketing campaigns based on customer behaviour. This boosts customer acquisition and retention.


Founded in Vienna in 2000 by Josef Ahorner, Hagai Hartman and Daniel Harari, Emarsys has enjoyed tremendous growth worldwide. The company was acquired by SAP in 2020 under the new name SAP Emarsys eMarketing Systems GmbH. SAP is a leading provider of high-end business solutions, a category to which the wildly popular Emarsys platform rightfully belongs.

Who is Emarsys geared towards?

The modular nature of Emarsys makes it highly scalable for all companies and therefore interesting for both SMEs and large enterprises which aim to:

  • Create more personal marketing campaigns
  • Save time by automating their marketing activities
  • Gain insight into their target group and customers
  • Maximise their marketing ROI


Since its inception, Emarsys has focused on business-to-consumer (B2C) companies. It is still one of the most popular automation platforms for e-commerce webshops and is constantly evolving with new features.


In recent years, especially since the merger with SAP, significant efforts have been made to transform SAP Emarsys into a business-to-business (B2B) tool. When used in tandem with SAP Sales Cloud, Emarsys becomes even more powerful, maximizing new opportunities that arise. For example, you can configure Emarsys to notify your sales team when a lead is detected as sales-qualified by the software.

SAP Emarsys: save time through automation

Automation is a core feature of Emarsys and is embedded in every aspect. Here are a few examples:

  • Abandoned basket overview: A series of steps is automatically generated for people who drop out of the check-out process before completing their purchase. This is based on proven strategies.
  • Long period without purchase: If a customer hasn’t made a purchase in a while, automatic notifications are sent to the sales department for follow-up.
  • New website visitors: New visitors are automatically assigned a score that represents their customer journey.
  • E-mail campaigns: Automatically segment your target audience to send personalized e-mails to specific groups.

These useful features give you immediate access to insights and campaigns that would otherwise have taken days to prepare, leaving you with more time to tackle other to-dos.

Did you know…
that 72% of customers use at least three unique channels before making a purchase? This highlights the importance of omnichannel personalization and understanding your customers’ needs.

Discover the power of customer engagement

More interaction with customers means a better customer experience. Having several touchpoints shows your customers you care about them. However, maintaining personal contact can be challenging and highly time-consuming.

Marketing automation with Emarsys allows you to communicate with your customers on a personal level and effectively respond to every phase of the customer journey.

Emarsys: competitors and alternatives

Before making a purchase, most people tend to compare their options. We've made it easy for you by offering an objective comparison of SAP Emarsys and the most popular alternatives on the market.

If you’re not sure which software is the best match for your business, let us know and we’ll create a custom comparison for you.


Emarsys offers out-of-the-box integration with a wide variety of partner tools.

At Elision, we specialise in software integration. Looking for custom integration? We've got you covered.

How long does integration take?

Standard implementation takes approximately 60 to 90 days. This gives you time to create your initial campaigns, although the actual timeframe may vary depending on your company’s size and what you want to achieve with SAP Emarsys.

SAP Emarsys pricing

As you can see, Emarsys is a valuable addition to your business, but what does it cost? The price is determined by two factors.

Emarsys licence

Together we will determine the best licence for your business. If you already use Emarsys, we’ll check to see whether you're using the right licence and go from there. The right licence depends on the number of contacts and the modules you want to use within the package. This is entirely customisable and scalable to your business.

Implementing Emarsys

SAP Emarsys only provides the package and does not assist with implementation. That's why most companies look for a partner to help them with this process. Elision provides comprehensive support from start to finish to ensure smooth and seamless integration.
