  • Eighty-nine percent of marketers who intend to compete on customer experience will fail if they don't offer buyers a mobile-enabled, real-time experience
  • Mobile marketers must meet consumer expectations for relevant real-time offers by engaging consumers based on knowing who the customers are, where they are and what they are doing
