Use Cases

Catalyst push notification service can be used in the following scenarios, among others:

  • A taxi-booking application sends iOS push notifications to its new customers if they have not opened the app for a certain amount of time after they sign up for an account. It includes engaging content that gives brief information about the types of cabs available in the form of a banner image, and a call-to-action button ‘Learn more!’ which redirects them to the app.

    The organization obtains a list of the new users from the Catalyst Data Store through APIs. This user list is passed on to use as the recipients of the push notifications in the application’s code. The code also defines the time gap between the sign up and initiating the push message, the time of the day it must be sent, and more.

  • A food delivery app sends iOS push notifications and web push notifications to their customers on a regular basis. The push notifications are customized based on various factors like the user’s location, the number of times they have used the app, their food preference history, and more.

    For example, based on a user’s location and previous food preferences, a push notification is sent to suggest an offer available at a nearby restaurant, along with a call-to-action button that redirects the user to the maps feature to see where the restaurant is. These notifications are tested from the Catalyst console before being sent to the customers.
