Learn more about PushEngage, our founders, and core values.
Hello and welcome to PushEngage, the world’s best push notification service.
As marketers, we are always looking for new ways to reach customers effectively. So when Chrome announced support for Web Push in 2015, we built out a platform for our internal use. The click rates and subscription rate of subscribers and overall ROI for Web Push, as compared to any other engagement channel, wowed us! We decided to make this a SaaS product available to everyone and launched our product in January 2016.
At PushEngage, we believe there is a better way to engage your user. Increasing repeat visitors to your site is always a challenge for any online website. With PushEngage, you have a new way to re-engage with users and reach them at the right time to create engaged and happy users. PushEngage is a product built by marketers for marketers, so we like to keep the product super easy to use, and one that’s focused on metrics and analytics that matter and move the needle.
