REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Sept. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- To enable marketers to quickly and efficiently target and engage customers on one of the world's fastest growing social media platforms, Oracle today announced a new direct integration between Oracle Eloqua, part of the Oracle Marketing Cloud, and WeChat.

This relationship is expected to deliver significant value and innovation to customers so as to empower their efforts to accelerate the modern business.
"Oracle Marketing Cloud has had tremendous success in helping the Enterprise improve their interaction with their customers and bringing that customer relationship to a whole new level," said Mr. Lu Qingwei, assistant general manager, Guangzhou Research & Development Department, WeChat, Tencent. "With the introduction of WeChat@Work, which is a communications and collaboration platform for the enterprise, we look forward to an even closer working relationship with Oracle Marketing Cloud to deliver more personalized engagements and enhance the customer experience for our users through WeChat and WeChat@Work."
