Montreal, QC--(January 10, 2017) - Engagement Labs (TSX VENTURE: EL) announced today that it has successfully secured a contract renewal with a leading global beauty manufacturer (the Customer) to utilize TotalSocial™, its proprietary data and diagnostic solution, which was launched in 2016.

“TotalSocial has quickly gained traction with the senior leadership teams at a number of major global brands and has been integrated it into their marketing strategies. The early success of TotalSocial, including a strong perceived return-on-investment, was the driving force behind the renewal of the contract, which includes improved economics for Engagement Labs compared to the original agreement,” said Ed Keller, CEO of Engagement Labs. “We are extremely encouraged that TotalSocial data and diagnostics are viewed as integral key performance indicators for the Customer’s marketing strategy, and we look forward to delivering increased value over the coming year.”
