“Providing our customers with a device experience that meets the specific needs of the user, is of the utmost importance to us,” explains Gerrit Povel, Head of the Direct to Consumer Division at Samsung Electronics Germany. “The Aura solution suite supports this goal – we can create an experience that is geared towards maximum relevance, engagement and ultimately, individual value.”

Setting up a new device for the first time is typically a moment where users are very focused on downloading the apps they’ll be using over the long-term. Aura’s AI and machine learning capabilities provide a dynamic setup experience with smart app recommendations during the device onboarding process, enabling users to set up their devices with the apps, content and services that they want and need. This helps partners, such as Samsung Germany, upgrade the device experience, increase satisfaction and build long-lasting relationships with their users. Additionally, the app recommendation touchpoints create a unique on-device distribution channel for developers to promote their apps as a native part of the device experience.
