San Francisco, CA and London UK - February 17, 2016 - Swrve, a leader in mobile engagement, today announced reaching a new milestone in terms of global use and scale. In the month of December 2015, the Swrve platform processed 271 billion user events, making it one of the most widely used mobile marketing platforms in the world. Last year, Swrve also tracked an unprecedented 101,314 real-time user behaviors and decisions a second, amounting to over 8.5 billion daily events - to capture meaningful mobile moments.
In 2015, mobile transitioned into the primary first-screen channel for brands and companies to connect with consumers, amounting to 30 billion mobile moments that are up for grabs each day (Forrester Research, Inc., Vendor Landscape: Mobile Engagement Automation Solutions, 4/5/2015). These mobile moments are essential in shaping the first screen experience for consumers, where expectations are high and patience is almost non-existent.
As a direct result of this unprecedented mobile transformation, Swrve has also announced the opening of its early access program for its breaking news feature, Quick Push. This new functionality enables marketers to quickly create and send a push notification to a predefined audience across all their platforms. Designed for today’s agile marketer, Quick Push provides marketers the flexibility to easily predefine the audience(s) to whom they want to send Quick Push notifications, and/or create and send the notifications, as needed.
Broadcast companies, for example, can now notify millions of viewers of the impending start of an original new show. By using a Swrve Quick Push notification, the broadcaster can achieve ideal results as their reminder will reach the intended audience during the optimal time between two and three minutes prior to the start of the telecast. Or, for example, race organizers may want to inform millions of race enthusiasts and followers of an unforeseen change to the race line-up or a sudden change in race conditions.
“We use Swrve’s Quick Push feature to reach out to thousands of race enthusiasts with breaking news stories, the latest stats and live odds around the racing schedule,” said Jack O'Reilly at Racing Post. “Timing is of critical importance to our team, as push notifications need to reach our customers before the race gets under way, regardless of audience size. With Swrve, our Quick Pushes have been delivered in 45 seconds or less.”
In 2015, Swrve experienced unprecedented business growth and expansion across its global locations with offices in San Francisco, Newport Beach, New York, Dublin, London, and Prague.

“In its latest holiday retail benchmark analysis, IBM reported that traffic originating from smartphones surpassed tablets and desktops, accounting for more than 53% of all online traffic,” said Christopher S. Dean, CEO, Swrve. “While mobile-first browsing and mobile shopping turned out to be a key growth driver, many retailers did not offer a mobile app and a mobile experience that today’s consumers have come to expect. In a world that increasingly revolves around a positive first-screen customer experience, marketers need to ensure they’re using the optimal technology that makes these mobile experiences absolutely seamless, frictionless and ultimately personal.”
