Creative & Design Partners
To unlock visual resources for all creatives, Ceros partnered with Getty Images to give designers and marketers the ability to tap into Getty Images’ expansive collection of stock video within the Ceros Studio. This integration enables designers to quickly find, add and edit videos and images without leaving the Ceros Studio, increasing the speed and quality of creation and enhancing marketers’ freedom to test, create and publish digital concepts and experiences on the fly.

Marketing Automation Technology Partners
Ceros integrates with leading marketing automation software Adobe Marketo Engage and HubSpot to drive content performance and generate leads. This integration allows Ceros Studio users to easily access and add their Marketo or HubSpot forms directly from the Studio and incorporate them into Ceros experiences.
