2018 American Business Awards
Stevie Awards competitions receive more than 10,000 entries each year from organizations in more than 60 nations. Digital Air Strike was named as a Company of the Year in the advertising, marketing and public relations category alongside global brands such as Symantec, Cisco Systems, and Verizon. The honor came on the heels of a monumental year for the company. Digital Air Strike launched a first-of-its-kind reputation management platform, Mission Control, updated its mobile app to include a text review feature, introduced its first-ever social recruiting solution, and acquired an artificial intelligence messaging provider.
In the Mobile Website and App Awards category, Digital Air Strike was given top honors with a Gold Stevie for the new features in its Mobile Review Surge app, which now allows businesses to send text messages requesting reviews in order to get instant customer feedback and increase positive online reviews. Adobe, American Family Insurance, Realtor.com and BMO Capital Markets were also named winners in the category.
Digital Air Strike also received best new product Stevie awards in the Artificial Intelligence/ Machine Learning category for Response Path, its recently announced artificial intelligence and chatbot consumer engagement tool, and for its automated lead response technology Response Logix® 4.0, in the Marketing/Public Relations category.
Response Logix is used by businesses to streamline and automate their responses to online leads, increase the visibility of their promotions and deliver customer experiences that simply sell more. Using the hybrid bot / human messaging platform, Response Path, businesses can start more conversations with shoppers on their websites, Facebook Messenger, and via SMS. Response Path automatically engages prospects 24/7, captures them as leads, and routes the opportunity to the right team member.
