ALISO VIEJO, CA – June 4, 2015 Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), a leading provider of wireless and mobility solutions, today announced its CMO, Carla Fitzgerald, will discuss emerging context-driven strategies for personalizing mobile engagement during a panel discussion at PLACE 2015: The Business of Location (June 9). The company has also published a whitepaper entitled Smarter Smartphone Marketing, describing the opportunity for hyper-targeted mobile interactions based on real-time consumer behavior, circumstances and intent, specifically in the hospitality industry.
"Mobile marketing is exploding but the power of smartphones is still surprisingly underutilized in real-world deployments, particularly in retailer and brand loyalty apps", said Carla Fitzgerald, CMO, Smith Micro. "Location-based solutions must tap into deeper contextual information to deliver more relevant and convenient mobile services. It's not just about pushing ads, the device should be able to anticipate what a consumer wants or needs, even if it's just presenting information differently in-store or offering virtual assistance".
Presented by Opus Research, PLACE brings together marketing experts from around the globe to learn, discuss and strategize how indoor location solutions, when combined with mobile and online data, are able to empower consumer engagement and business intelligence.
