Movember‘s fundraisers make use of and the Movember app for registration and profile setup, facilitating donation collection and interaction within the Movember community. Recognizing that top fundraisers preferred the mobile app, Movember aimed to treat the app as the primary channel and use it to sustain engagement throughout the entire Movember month.

However, limitations in their existing tech stack restricted the team to sending push notifications with minimal control over the app’s user journey. Additionally, the lack of integration between the mobile app and the web portal resulted in a disjointed messaging experience for fundraisers.
