7Sheep

I use 7Sheep for marketing as a sales person. This works well for me as a single user. I do not think I could use the software together with my colleagues. Although we could have separated lists the access rights might not fit our use case. It has a strong marketing focus and cannot replace a full CRM system.

Oracle Responsys

You need a full-service front end and back end team and marketers to get the best use out of this platform. It is clunky to use day to day. The best example to give is Oracle uses their own form of SQL called RPL. Responsys Programming Language. Whilst simple enough to learn if you know SQL, many marketers do not have time to write query after query. You'd typically get a developer to do it. As a Marketer, decide whether you can delegate this out or not.

Pros

  • Whenever we needed help their support was quick to guide us.
  • Contact form integration on our website was done via an embed code. We use WordPress and just copied the code on the page.
  • Aggregating our different contact lists from several systems was very important for us. We [now] have a comprehensive overview of our contacts and donors in a single online tool.
  • 7Sheep is a European company and also has its servers in Europe. Because of data protection laws this was key for us.
  • We can produce form letters straight out of the tool.

  • Email Message Designer is easy to use and fairly straightforward.
  • Integrates well with other tools my company utilizes, like stensul and Liveclicker.
  • Our Customer Success Manager is great! Customer service in general is very good.

Cons

  • Better overview of drip campaigns.
  • Easier overview of automation responses.
  • Greater customization of landing pages
  • Being able to see SMS and email campaigns as part of the same sequence.

  • The ability to search for specific links globally , right now you can only search for link tables names.
  • Ability to connect to RSS Feeds not using XML coding which is advanced and not user friendly.
  • Away to mass update links because going through every link table to update a link in the header of every email was extremely painful and time consuming.

The tool serves our needs and we like the user interface. The few times we contacted support they were super helpful and responsive. When we asked for more integrations they confirmed the integrations we need (e.g. Hipchat) for the near future.

We believe Responsys offers the largest feature set in the industry. While it took some time for us to ramp up and feel confident using all the features in the beginning, we're now in a good position to take full advantage. Our investment is paying off in terms of regular, targeted interaction with our customers and prospects, driving traffic to our site and generating additional revenue

The system is robust but usable. Just like with any new system, there will be a learning curve.

With both chat and email support I have always had enough ways to get through to them! Their support is good, honest and most importantly supportive. They helped us set up and start using the tool when we got stuck. Moving from Mailchimp where there were some semantic lessons to learn and they took the time to help us get used to 7Sheep

Too often the support team is unable to answer my question or I have to explain the issue over and over.

7Sheep is much easier to use.

Before transitioning to Oracle Responsys we were on the Yesmail Platform. Out of the box, Oracle Responsys gave us more functionality and flexibility.

Return on Investment

  • We certainly have experienced a great efficiency for our staff.
  • We spend far less time chasing tasks as they can be divided within 7Sheep.
  • Segmentation of data and lead management is really great and has helped us enormously in terms of efficient use of data.
