For context on what it takes to be named a Leader, here’s what the report has to say: “Leaders possess the resources and acumen to deliver extensive mobile marketing capabilities guided by a clear, comprehensive view of mobile marketing's crucial role as the dominant engagement point for customers and prospects.”*

According to the report, Leaders have also “executed a substantial number of implementations across a variety of industries. They push their customers toward more advanced states of mobile marketing capabilities. Leaders are equally successful in B2B and B2C marketing scenarios.”

A pioneer in the mobile engagement space, we’re continuing to innovate to bring mobile-native techniques and predictive AI to "traditional" channels like email and web notifications. Our Digital Growth Platform is structured to help marketers unify both mobile and traditional channels in a single platform — and create smarter campaigns with data-powered cross-channel orchestration. All of these innovative capabilities result in high value, real-time, contextual customer engagement that is the hallmark of success for modern brands.  

“We believe Gartner’s recognition of Urban Airship as a Leader is validation of our market-leading ability to set new standards for customer experience by powering real-time interactions across any channel — apps, websites, mobile wallets, email, SMS, voice and more,” said Brett Caine, our president and CEO.

Caine continues, “Urban Airship’s Digital Growth Platform unlocks the value of real-time data, giving marketers the control to take action on it anywhere, including maximizing their use of customer data, automation and predictive machine learning across existing solution investments. This gives the marketer more visibility, capability and flexibility than they've ever had before.”
