Advana is a company that aims to power businesses to reach their customers and get them to take action on time-sensitive offers - think about an airline trying to sell last minute tickets or a restaurant trying to fill some tables before the night is over. Through our platform, companies can send messages directly to their customers' cellphones. Upon clicking on the message, customers have an option to interact immediately and finalize the engagement - whether it is a sale, booking something, calling a call center, etc - right there and then.
