Toronto, ON – Today PathFactory announced that Druva, the leader in Cloud Data Protection and Management, selected PathFactory to accelerate lead nurturing and reduce marketing friction. The company’s chief marketing officer, Thomas Been, implemented PathFactory as a critical piece of his team’s marketing technology stack shortly after joining Druva.
“As Druva’s new CMO, I need to implement technologies that help our team work smarter, optimize the performance of existing investments and assets, and support Druva’s ambitious goals for growth,” Been said. “Using PathFactory, we are removing friction in the buyer’s journey and enhancing our business intelligence process with a new class of data.

The first use case for PathFactory at Druva is real-time nurturing. Been’s team is using PathFactory to accelerate the velocity of their nurture programs by encouraging buyers to consume multiple assets in every session and self-educate at their own pace, reducing friction and increasing conversion rates at every stage of the marketing funnel as they learn more about Druva’s industry-leading cloud data protection platform. In addition, PathFactory’s robust analytics will help the Druva team identify which content resonates with their audience, improving the customer experience and the ROI on marketing investments. Been is a repeat customer, and has used PathFactory at a previous company to achieve a 5X increase in opportunities and a 40 percent improvement in funnel velocity.
“We’re excited to welcome Thomas back to the PathFactory community as a two-time customer and look forward to celebrating his team’s success as we work together to implement PathFactory at Druva before the end of the year,” said Dev Ganesan, President and CEO of PathFactory. “Forward-thinking marketing leaders like Thomas are harnessing first- and third- party data to generate insights to personalize content experiences, so they can grow revenue and create efficiencies with their marketing strategies.”
