Openwave Mobility Launches MOTIFY to Push Customer Engagement to New Levels
Openwave Mobility, a software innovator enabling operators to manage and monetize mobile data, today launched MOTIFY, enabling operators to alert users in real-time when it matters. This cloud-based, push notification solution uniquely empowers mobile operators to notify subscribers before incurring additional charges such as when nearing or exceeding their data limits or using data while roaming – all through an existing self-care application resident on the device.
As well as charging notifications, MOTIFY can also be used by operators to reach subscribers with user-relevant promotions – driving new revenue streams. For example, offering data and video promotions ahead of an important sporting event or discounts to promote a new smartphone – all on ‘a first click first served’ basis. And crucially, MOTIFY enables operators to track and measure the success of each engaging offer and event.
MOTIFY’s benefits include:
- Contextual Notifications – messages tailored for unique events and offers using a range of rich rendering options including video.
- Reporting – providing operators valuable analytical insight into notifications that are trending and being acted upon.
- Instills Customer Loyalty – the service enables seamless compatibility with existing customer loyalty programs to incentivize use.
- Brings the operator brand to life – MOTIFY reaches subscribers whatever they are doing in new and engaging ways.
Currently, operators primarily use SMS messages or emails to alert subscribers, both of which may be time delayed or simply result in the message getting lost in the noise. This lack of real-time engagement can result in ‘bill-shock’ and in any case, many tablets do not even support SMS.
“In business as in life, great timing really matters,” said John Giere, CEO at Openwave Mobility. “Get it wrong and you’ve missed the opportunity, but get it right and you are building customer loyalty. Today’s mechanisms for contacting subscribers such as email and text are stale and ineffective. Nobody wants to hear about charges after they have been applied or see an attractive offer when it’s too late. This is what MOTIFY is changing. MOTIFY provides unique promotional and monetization opportunities for operators and a personalized, rich user experience for subscribers. When time is critical, when every second counts, MOTIFY provides the means to reach subscribers anywhere, anytime – in real time”.
Openwave Mobility will be hosting a MOTIFY Launch Party on Tuesday, February 25 at 5:00 p.m. at the Northern Ireland stand in Hall 8.1, Stand 8.1-51. Please come join us to celebrate the latest innovation in customer engagement!
