With Forrester indicating that sales from smartphone devices have grown 53% year-over-year, while mobile phones have influenced nearly $1 trillion in retail sales, mobile usage is clearly becoming a top-of-mind theme for consumers. The expansion of another platform focused on consumer engagement represents a chance for more retailers to build better relationships with the shopper via their mobile devices.

Global brands and retailers already using Mobify include: Ann Taylor, Beyond the Rack, Crocs, Carnival Cruise Lines, Eddie Bauer and Superdry.
