Engaging your customer is one of the many challenges facing today’s businesses. Push notification systems, for mobile phones, tablets, & desktops, give you direct access to your customer.
Did you know over 91% of adults keep their mobile phone with arms reach (source: Morgan Stanley)? Where’s your mobile phone? Right next to you, and I bet you just checked that notification that came in.
In the past, this technology was expensive, you needed your own apps and your own response server and back end services. Today, Mobile as a Service (MaaS) can provide you with all these fancy enterprise features, at a fraction of the cost.
We know, we develop custom apps from scratch too. It’s expensive, we have to build a compatibility list of devices, show costs comparisons to support devices, build backend servers, services, APIs, redundant systems, & other voodoo and witch craft. A basic, no frills custom app generally starts at $25,000 to develop and that does not include the infrastructure and support costs.
Now MaaS to the rescue, starting at $6,000 year, with no infrastructure and minimum support costs. This magnitude of cost savings is what’s driving mobile app growth for businesses of all sizes. Small and mid-size businesses can now have apps with streaming video, music, maps and even more advanced features like geo-fencing and push notifications with out breaking the bank.
Internet Retailer says 80% of companies see a rise in sales in companies that approach a mobile centric approach like apps with push notifications. Nielson points out that 2/3 of mobile time is spent on apps. Clutch.co‘s research indicates that 47% of business have or plan to get an app in the near future.
