Configure mobile notifications

Mobile notifications are all mobile promotions you can display in a mobile application. Synerise enables you to create different types of mobile notifications. The number of people with smartphones is still growing and so is the amount of time we spend using them. Mobile notifications also give you the possibility to use geo-targeting for your messages. All you need is a mobile app integrated with the Synerise platform.


Before you start…

Remember that before you start using mobile notifications you need to have your own mobile app first.


SDK Integrations

The SDK is a set of tools for programmers necessary to create applications that use the data library for operating systems. The SDK usually includes documentation, source code examples, and library data. SDK integrations enables connection with the login module - you can log in either via Facebook or via data entered by the user to set up an account (email or phone number). Thanks to the password management module, the user can set a new password at any time or recall an old one (via SMS or email).

Mobile SDK enables targeting marketing notifications using various marketing automation tools:

  • Mobile inserts,
  • AB tests,
  • Targeted banners within the application for specific customer segments.

Send mobile notifications

There are a couple of ways to send mobile notifications in Synerise. In this part we will show you the methods available, including:

  • Manually, from the Communication module
  • Using the Automation module (through Send mobile push)

Send manually

If you want to send a notification to a predefined group of customers or an entire database, you can do so manually from the Communications module.

WARNING: This option will allow you to send a message immediately or schedule it.

You can manually send your notifications directly in the Communication module after creating your template and adjusting all settings. In order to send a mobile notification, go to Communication > Mobile.

Choose the type of your mobile notification:

After creating a template, click the Send button on the upper right side.

WARNING: The Send button will not be active until all sections described above have been filled in.
  1. When your message is saved as a draft you have to find it on the list in Communication > Mobile and click on it,
  2. If all the boxes are filled, you can click Send.
WARNING: If you set up a scheduled time in the future, the notification will be sent at the time you set after you click Send.

Send automatically

Automation of mobile notifications, based on behavioral data about the customer, saves the marketer’s time while increasing the efficiency of notification delivery. Synerise allows you to send mobile notifications automatically using the Automation module. Remember to use this solution when you want to send or display your mobile communication only to people who meet specific conditions described in the customer workflow.

WARNING: Using automation requires prior preparation of a mobile-push message template. Remember to prepare it earlier before you create the workflow.

In order to use automation for mobile notifications, go to Automation > Workflows > New workflow

You can create a mobile notification in just two steps:

  • Set the automation,
  • Save and/or run the no.

Use notification analytics

Mobile notification analytics let you analyze the results achieved within individual notification. Thanks to them you are able to compare and analyze data from each source in real time, gather information about their effectiveness and track the areas that are most important to you.

This lets you optimize the sending time of notifications, analyze the behavioral and transactional data collected about the user in the system and personalize their content.

In order to check the analytics, go to Communication > Mobile.

Above the list of notifications you can find a dashboard with general data about all notifications.

  1. On the left side you can see the notification statuses (how many of them are active/scheduled/paused), and on the right side you see statistics from the last 24 hours,
  2. You can also check the statistics from every notification. To do this, just double click on the notification.

In the Audience box, you can find all important statistics from a notification.

  1. Total Audience, total number of users in a selected segment,
