Today, Fonix announced the launch of CRM Automation: a set of customer engagement automation tools for its clients to deliver mobile interactive services.
Some of the UK’s largest radio and TV broadcasters work with Fonix to deliver mobile interactive services to their audiences, with messaging used as highly effective channel for generating audience engagement.
Fonix’s platform enables its clients to configure predefined campaign start and end times, cost per mobile interaction and more. Now, Fonix has added a set of new functionalities to enable broadcasters to provide a more tailored experience for audiences when creating marketing communications, to maximise engagement and effectiveness for those campaigns.
Clients will be able to schedule automated responses at predefined times for users based on their previous interactions with a campaign, meaning that clients will be able to target individuals uniquely with relevant message content in a timely manner and within sociable hours driving both optimal experience for users and engagement for the brands.
CEO of Fonix, Rob Weisz commented: “This is such an exciting development for Fonix product suite. CRM Automation will allow for more targeted campaigns, providing those that love engaging with services an experience that is focussed upon their interaction habits. It will drive engagement and crucially, help our clients to avoid sending unwanted messages to their audiences.
“The functionality has a strong focus upon upholding a fantastic consumer experience, which is so important to Fonix and those that we work with. We’re excited to see the impact that this has upon our clients and to hear about the results that this has for their consumers!”

AIME Member News
Consumers are constantly bombarded with irrelevant messages from multiple brands, across numerous channels, which means increasingly few messages get through and activated upon. So the question is: what can you do about it?
Mobile messaging provides a breath of fresh air when it comes to trying to solve these issues. Concise, targeted and instantly effective, it opens up a new channel on which to build a relationship with consumers based on the communication they actually want to receive.
Download the Messaging and Loyalty Whitepaper and mGage we will be sharing their experience from helping different industries with their mobile messaging strategies and will also share the results of their recent survey on Messaging and Loyalty.
Here are the key takeaways:
– What consumers want: what are the channels we use the most and how do we want brands to engage with us
– Actionable insights:
– Retargeting: re-engage with customers that abandon their baskets or that have been inactive for a long period of time
– Engagement and Loyalty: provide a one-way channel for your customers to interact with you, being it questions about products/services, order notifications or feedback on a recenlty purchased product
– Drive traffic to your stores/app and increase sales: give that extra push your customers sometimes need to enter your store/app and look at what’s new
