Here’s how Gartner defines these Use Cases (see pages 19 & 20 of the report).

Acquisition: “This use case involves the design, execution and optimization of campaigns to acquire new customers via their mobile devices. This scenario includes goal setting, audience segmentation and content (including offers) that drives registration in settings such as an app or on a mobile site.”

Engagement: “This includes the design, execution and optimization of campaigns to cross-sell, upsell, motivate or inform existing customers on their mobile devices. This scenario includes specific campaigns to grow revenue per customer, and to drive more consistent customer engagement.”

Retention: “This is the design, execution and optimization of campaigns to persuade customers to engage via mobile devices, reengage lapsed customers and drive loyalty program sign-ups. This scenario includes goal setting, identifying segments for retention campaigns and offers.”

In a press release, Brett Caine, CEO and president, Airship said, “Airship is setting new standards in real-time customer experience — the critical element of brand success today — and believe our scores in Gartner’s Critical Capabilities report reflect the industry-leading results our customers and partners are seeing around the world,”
