Airship

Airship is a great tool for Push Message and In-App Message marketing efforts, and their message center is fully flushed out (unlike many other platforms I have worked with). They have also gotten better over the last year or two in aligning things a bit more efficiently across iOS and Android. I have not personally used Airship for anything other than their Mobile App offerings, so I can't comment on their SMS or Web Notification capabilities, but I have heard negative things about their email offering. To me Airship is first and foremost a mobile app tool, and everything else is secondary, so that makes sense.

OpenMarket

OpenMarket is well suited to support enterprise SMS at scale, with a wholesale and flexible solution. Their provisioning team is great in terms of response time, and support for their products is deeply rooted in industry and technological understanding of SMS. OpenMarket would not be well suited for small companies just starting to test the waters with SMS in a low barrier way.

Pros

Airship

  • It's very fast. As soon as we hit send, it arrives on our phone and tablet apps immediately.
  • The interface is clear. We generally copy and paste the headline right into the box. The font and font size, along with the background, make it easy to read so that we avoid any typos. That's important because we're working quickly.
  • It gives you good and usable analytics to track engagement.
  • It's 100 percent reliable. We've never had an issue with it.

Cons

Airship

  • Better clarity on what can and can't be tracked in terms of user interactions with apps

OpenMarket

  • OpenMarket does most things well. One thing they are missing is MMS capabilities on text enabled long numbers.
  • The portal for entering shortcode program briefs is kind of clunky, it would be nice is account managers took the Word document and imported it into the tool for clients.

The interface takes a bit getting used to in order to know how to take advantage of everything. Some of the analytics that are available are particularly hard to find, so it's important to pay attention when customer support reviews everything, but everything I'd want and need in terms of Push and In-App messaging is all there.

Airship 9.0
Based on 1 answer
I have not had to interact much with customer support as I have been able to find the vast majority of the answers I'm looking for within their documentation, which I very much appreciate because it saves me a lot of time. Customer support has been responsive and helpful for the most part during the couple of interactions I've had.

Airship

There was a time when we went off Urban Airship and went to Spreed. We were using Spreed's app, so there was much better integration on push notifications. The push notification took readers directly into the story. When we moved from Spreed to our own native app, we went back to Urban Airship.

OpenMarket

As a top tier aggregator, OpenMarket requires contracts to utilize their services, whereas other SaaS providers allow users to signup and start sending within a shorter amount of time. The benefit of using OpenMarket is the relationship, and the SLAs in availability they maintain. Other aggregators offer equal levels of service, so there are other shops in town selling the same thing with the same reliability.
