Have you wondered if the messages you sent from the push notification service did make it to the end user’s device? Did the user actually open the message?

You can monitor the receipt of the message per platform (mobile/web) and per user/device . This open’s up a whole new possibilities for your business.

Include dynamic and static elements in your push messages,while retaining the flexibility to replace elements once sent. You can now leverage the broadcast capability, but personalize each message.
