Aurora Mobile Wins 2021 Leading SaaS Enterprise Award in the 5th China Software and Information Service Industry Annual Billboard
SHENZHEN, China, Feb. 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aurora Mobile Limited (NASDAQ: JG) (“Aurora Mobile” or the “Company”), a leading mobile developer service provider in China, today announced that it was recently recognized as the Leading SaaS Enterprise in the ”2021 Fifth China Software and Information Service Industry Annual Billboard” (the “Annual Billboard”), an initiative by the Information Observation Network.
The 2021 Annual Billboard aims to recognize outstanding products, services, solutions, enterprises and influential people across a variety of new and innovative technology including 5G application, industrial Internet, network security, cloud computing, AI, and the Internet of Things, which the organization believes will further promote the development and advancement of these sectors and other related industries.
Since the Annual Billboard was launched five years ago, it has attracted extensive attention and influence across the industry. The organizing committee received applications from more than 600 enterprises in 2021. Based on the principles of "fairness, impartiality and openness", candidates were selected by the organizing committee after a preliminary selection and subsequently participated in rounds of online voting and rigorous evaluation by an expert committee. The whole selection process was completed in nearly 4 months. Given the Company's excellent performance, Aurora Mobile was selected as the 2021 Leading SaaS Enterprise in China's Software and Information Service Industry, a testament of the industry-wide acclaim and trust that Aurora Mobile commands for its robust technical capabilities and services.
As a leading developer service provider in China, Aurora Mobile has developed solid capabilities including data integration & analysis, and AI-powered algorithms based on more than a decade of in-depth experience, push notification and other technical fields. The Company helps businesses and developers effectively improve operational efficiency, grow and monetize their applications.
In 2021, Aurora Mobile launched the 2.0 version of its key product, JG Unification Messaging System ("JG UMS"), and a free version of JG UMS on the public cloud, both of which have been well received by users. As an innovative messaging management middle office, JG UMS integrates nine major messaging channels, including mobile apps, Short Message Service (“SMS”), emails, WeChat official accounts, WeChat mini-programs, enterprise WeChat, Alipay mini-programs, DingTalk and 5G messaging. It helps businesses address the increasing demands on push notification services, improve the efficiency of user acquisition, user engagement and retention rate, and save on operating costs and SMS related expenses. The customers of JG UMS include China Merchants Fund, Shanghai Pharmaceuticals, UU Paotui and other companies.
In addition to JG UMS, the Company's video service product Video-as-a-Service (“JG VaaS”) has been growing in popularity due to its versatility in this space. In recent years, short videos for a wide range of audiences, personalized communication and social attributes have been growing in demand for applications that attract Gen Z consumers, the main targets for online content entertainment. The capabilities to quickly acquire short videos and disseminate trending content have become top priorities for developers and businesses. JG VaaS has been able to address this demand by providing high-quality short videos tailored to extensive and evolving users’ needs. With more than 100,000 contracted content producers, JG VaaS has a pool of over 130 million short videos with 200,000+ daily updates. Users can easily enjoy the video content via API or by installing the JG VaaS SDK. According to the Company's internally-generated statistics, the average user time spent per day increased by 120 seconds for apps powered by JG VaaS, while the 7-day retention rate of these apps also increased by 11% for new users.
In 2022, Aurora Mobile remains committed to offering diversified high-quality services to mobile app developers and businesses, helping them stay ahead of growing demands for operational efficiency, and work hand-in-hand to generate business growth and drive monetization efforts.
