Airship Journeys addresses frustrations with today’s “drag-and-drop” journey builder tools, which generate convoluted diagrams that are difficult to create and nearly impossible to understand, analyze and modify. A November 2019 Airship survey of marketers found that more than 40% deemed their efforts to manage multichannel digital communications as unsuccessful and more than half said they either have difficulty or can’t identify their best-performing journeys. Over-messaging is a concern to more than 70%, while 55% are also concerned about under-messaging.

“Legacy visual builders were created for an email- and desktop-centric world with far fewer channels and little concern for where a customer was or what they were doing,” said Brett Caine, CEO and president, Airship. “They’ve become complex and bloated in failed attempts to adapt to the new era where the customer experience is all about mobile and in-the-moment responsiveness with many more channels and a much greater expectation that interactions are personalized and contextually relevant. Airship Journeys embeds a decade of mobile expertise and proven AI into a completely new approach to ensure that marketers are successful and their customers have an amazing experience.”

By combining the management of multiple channels into a single console, Airship Journeys makes it easy for marketers to send the right messages to the right customers across apps, websites, email, SMS, mobile wallets and more. Messages can be directed according to priority channel, customer’s preferred channel or fallback channel. Marketer productivity is also enhanced with a unified message composer that allows messages to be composed once and then sent across multiple channels.

“I really like the ease of use, and linking the send time between messages which helped increase productivity for our team. Airship Journeys makes it easy to see what the user experience will look like and share that view internally,” said Conner Fryoux, Digital Product Manager, TGI Fridays. “I'm eager to test out new use cases, and our leadership team is pleased to see more customers come through our doors.”

Airship’s open platform approach also eases the consolidation and application of data and events across channels and existing systems - enabling more precise segmentation and personalized execution. To further enhance contextual responsiveness, Airship Journeys incorporates cross-channel branching that automatically adjusts in real time to respond to a customer’s behavior. Airship Journeys monitors and controls message frequency and uses Predictive AI to segment audiences and automatically re-engage lapsed customers.

“Airship Journeys allows us to make quick decisions and adapt critical journeys on the fly, from driving feature adoption and app store ratings, to increasing transaction frequency at key moments in the lifecycle, all while taking full advantage of our own predictive models and historical data,” said Sam Kirwan, app marketing specialist, Ding.com. “The massive benefit is that Journeys has freed up our time, allowing us to examine cohorts at different life stages and apply more testing as we revamp our lifecycle marketing holistically — no small feat considering our customers span more than 140 countries.”

With early use and guidance by The Allstate Corporation, Ding.com, GameStop, JCPenney, Kohl’s, NBA International and TGI Fridays, Airship Journeys has been designed to meet the complex demands of global brands and is now included in its Customer Engagement Platform.

Recently, among 18 vendors, Airship received the highest Product Scores across all three Use Cases in Gartner’s 2019 Critical Capabilities for Mobile Marketing Platforms,1 including the Acquisition, Engagement and Retention Use Cases. In Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant for Mobile Marketing Platforms 2 Airship was positioned highest in its ability to execute and also furthest for its completeness of vision in the Leaders quadrant overall.
