  • Introduction to Air2Web
    Garrett Mullins | August, 2010
  • A brief introduction to Air2Web
    Air2Web provides a consumer life-cycle support system as a managed service. Our service is delivered to mobile phones, on behalf of large enterprises serving their client base, with their permission. Consumers increasingly demand the mobile channel to interact with businesses because it is the most convenient, always on, private method of communication today.
    Our business philosophy is based on the premise that mobile services are best delivered in the context of a relationship or conversation with consumers. As such, marketers must recognize the ways in which mobile does, and does not, resemble the evolution of the internet. At Air2Web, we believe that a strong “foundational benefit” must be extended to consumers first, e.g., mobile customer self-service, before using their most personal technology to sell to them.
    Consequently, we help our clients improve the cost and experience of customer care for their customers; personalize and improve the relevance of promotional efforts; and gain better insights about what their customers think about them – all via the mobile channel.

    Air2Web gets you up here
    Most enterprises get stuck down here
  • So in addition to high, basic ROI’s……
    The relevancy of messages sent to consumers and the value of customer initiated transactions is high because the information in each message exchange is unique to their relationship with your company – not a generic blast.
    SOA based security standards and a tool set which can even create web services for legacy applications that own critical, relevant data.
    • You can test multiple versions of an idea to get it right, because there is no big, one-time integration cost, i.e., you don’t have to place “big, blind bets.”
    • Time to market for new ideas, responses to market conditions or competitive threats is weeks, NOT quarters because our Enterprise Agent reduces the time required to integrate. There is no custom code or API development.
