ABOUT RIMINI STREET
Rimini Street is the global leader in providing independent enterprise software support services.

Having realized the potential for their services in the Israeli market, Rimini Street opened their local offices at the beginning of 2015.
As soon as Rimini Street based its position with several key deals, the international company began looking for a local marketing agency to take over their local marketing efforts.
Finding an agency to provide all marketing services under one roof is a tricky business, as agencies tend to focus on specific areas, such as public relations, Marcom or conference organization, to name just a few.
Acting on the recommendation of local firms, Rimini Street
approached Xtra mile with a one-off project that led to a successful long-term relationship.
THE REST IS HISTORY.
When Tom Bianchi, Rimini Street’s Director of Marketing, EMEA, landed on Xtra mile’s website,
he immediately understood that it was not just another agency but a full-blown, one-stop-shop business.
The initial responsiveness of Xtra mile was excellent, which was an indication of things to come.
Xtra mile were entrusted with all of Rimini Street’s marketing activities in Israel (digital campaigns, content preparation, organization of events and more), and activities began soon after.
