Vidyard Unveils Suite Of Tools To Access And Track Video Content In Email

Published: July 12, 2016

For customer-facing teams looking to capture, retain and measure audience engagement, Vidyard Engage is a suite of tools designed to help users incorporate video content into email sent from Gmail and Outlook. The solution can also provide intelligence regarding who watched video content and for how long.


Vidyard Engage enables marketers to create, send and track video with intelligence on viewership. The solution allows the user to: 

  • Send: Access, record and send videos from within Gmail or Outlook as easily as attaching a PDF;
  • Watch: Videos automatically play back on dedicated branded sharing pages, so there is no need to post to YouTube or upload to a specific site;
  • Alert: Receive email notifications as soon as the viewer watches the video and get details on how long they engaged; and
  • Act: Click to see the viewer’s full engagement history within the Vidyard Contact Center.


Vidyard Engage is designed to make video content accessible for customer-facing roles. This could include inside sales members (for prospecting with video), account executives (for sending video demos and customer testimonial videos), customer support staff (for sending how-to and training videos) and customer success teams (for sending on-boarding videos).


All video viewing data can be pushed directly into individual lead and contact records in Salesforce CRM, providing insight into interest and intent. Sales and marketing leaders can run reports and create dashboards in Salesforce to identify the videos that are influencing the most opportunities and closing the most deals.
