Teradata buys mobile marketing software company, Appoxee

Appoxee's tools aim to help companies retain mobile app users

To beef up its mobile marketing portfolio, analytics systems supplier Teradata has acquired Appoxee, a Tel Aviv startup that develops in-app and push messaging software designed to increase mobile user engagement.

The deal closed in December, but was publicly disclosed on Tuesday by Teradata. The Dayton, Ohio, company didn't disclose financial terms of the deal.

Appoxee's software provides mobile developers with the tools to create push and in-app messages. This content can help companies retain users, fend off competing apps and aid corporate marketing efforts, according to Appoxee's website.

Push messages can, for example, remind a person to finish a purchase started on a retailer's mobile app, encourage a user to complete a mobile game they've started or send alerts when an app has been updated. The messages, which appear on a mobile device's home screen, are personalized and can include information like a person's name or details on the last time they used an app. In-app messages allow developers to create HTML messages that are viewed when a person is using an app. Examples of in-app message include coupons and content with images and videos.

Appoxee also offers an analytics platform to track app usage and an algorithm that analyzes previous app usage and uses that information to send a message when a person is most likely to open it.

Buying Appoxee provides Teradata with more mobile marketing capabilities, Teradata said in a news release, adding that it was especially interested in the software's ability to engage customers in real time.

Appoxee's products will be immediately added to the Teradata Integrated Marketing Cloud, Teradata said.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
