It has a safe database that manages our customer's data and we can easily refer to it when we require customer information. It is simple to use and can easily monitor all marketing channels at a lower cost.

Sailthu is perfectly suited, no matter what level of technical skill you have or support from an Engineering team. That said, it includes many advanced features which can only be fully utilized when integrated with custom webhooks and after receiving customer data sent via their APIs. There may be easier solutions out there for less technical users or for people wanting a simpler setup to begin with.
Read full review Pros If we already have a list of subscribers to whom we want to send private newsletters about certain updates in our products and services, it is very easy to import them into the platform through text document formats, or directly from cloud platforms that have allowed us to save their information It integrates very well with platforms oriented to the development of help desk operations, as in the case of Zendesk, where we store all the information of the customers that communicate with us to improve their user experience through technical assistance, and to have a better feedback with them. Adobe Campaign allows us to create our own forms that can be added to the company's page, so that depending on the type of potential customer that is accessing them, we can show personalized information that is of interest to them as customers, and thus ensure more business. Read full review Personalization - one of the most important things you can utilize when emailing people. Segmentation - Sailthru makes it very easy to build an audience based off their criteria; there are so many different fields to choose from. We use this mostly for geo-targeting and engagement. Analytics - post-campaign analytics are very easy to look at, customize your view, and download as a csv to share with your team and company. Read full review Cons We have had problems with the usability of their platform. When we communicate with the integrated technical support via e-mail, it takes hours to respond. On the other hand, the application does not allow us to multitask, your platform becomes very slow. Also, it is a bit complicated to adapt to using the application completely. Read full review Giving more practical examples of technical setups, sometimes the only way to understand it is to see it. Can't filter lists by date created or date modified, particularly needed when tracking down a specific list or looking to remove older lists. Can't set up automated data dumps to an email address, has to be sent via API. Jake Bodmer

Once you go for Neolane you are a bit stuck with it, so we will most likely stay with Neolane. Cost of investment and training are the main factors at work here. We havesimply have invested too much in the product to stop using it after 2 years. That said, my score of 8 does not imply that the product is worthy of getting an 8 but reflects our willingness to renew. Given that upgrading to a new version will cost again a substantial sum, we most likely will keep using the current version we are on which is 6X.

The biggest factor is that even after two months of trying to go through their credit processes and getting the right consideration for the real damages we had with the tool not being able to send campaigns for days, their sales staff is still not willing to work with us on it, making us do the switch away from them right now. We got extremely disappointed by trying to work with them through those issues.

I believe that many applications have some flaws but many in general are very efficient in what they do and among all these, I believe that Adobe Campaign offers great features compared to others and is also a very robust and stable platform. We can use data in a very advanced way to get as much management as possible over the entire flow.

I wished they have standard technical support based in Sydney, Australia and they made it easy for us to access that support. A lot of the complex technical support questions have to be coursed through Adobe consultants, who charge a premium. And sometimes the answers to some technical questions are not very straightforward. In the end, we contracted a local Adobe Campaign technical partner.

Their account management / sales staff doesn't seem to be taking the problems you experience very seriously - it took us 3 months and nudge emails to them every 2 weeks to ask for status updates (plus 6 different conversations with different people) to get a (very small credit) for a major issue, which in two months prohibited us from sending campaign emails for 2-3 days at a time.

As earlier stated, it is really about the customizability. We used and still do use the other platforms mentioned. But our clients on Adobe Campaign needed a more sophisticated solution. We would be able to achieve the same outcomes on a different tool, but the difference is they would require much more regular and manual attention.

Sailthru provided a powerful, easy-to-use platform that was able to adjust to the needs we had at Dotdash. It was able to support the simple campaigns where we would send static creative to all recipients and the complex dynamic campaigns where we were customizing content. The scale and flexibility really made it a great platform for us to use.
