How is digital engagement enhanced?

Through this integration, Airtel aims to closely monitor user activities and offer highly personalised services, thereby boosting customer retention and engagement. The partnership will extend to Airtel Money, Smart Cash in Nigeria, and Airtel TV, ensuring seamless and tailored digital experiences across various platforms, including Web, App, in-app, Meta, Google, and traditional channels like SMS and email.

More than 30 highly personalized customer journeys are live, engaging more than one million subscribers and resulting in over 30% conversions.

Our objective is to improve CLTV for every customer with highly targeted offerings across channels that meet their individual needs. We have built a foundation of digital customer base management with WebEngage for My Airtel app, driving customer engagement and deeper product penetration into mobile money and adjacent digital services. It must be stated that in all this we ensure complete customer privacy.”
