Likelihood to Recommend

Aurea LM

Lyris LM is suited well with an organization or group that have several lists, as virtual list hosting is not represented by any other hosting company as far as I can tell.

For any bulk mailing activities, this is the first service we use. We support a lot of clients with M365 and Google Workspace and have used SMTP2GO as separate SMTP servers and they have never let us down.

Pros

Aurea LM

  • Reports: extensive reporting on mailings and membership. Pre-built reports/charts include Mailings, Members, Server Performance, Web site, Purchases, Interest and Surveys. If Aurea ListManager doesn't have the built-in chart needed, you can easily create your own.
  • Easy to analyze mailings: Completed mailing can be analyzed quickly. Options include viewing any errors that may have resulted, and checking list performance, evaluating recipient actions, ( opens, click-troughs). Details can be seen on a per-recipient basis, allowing you to see exactly what happened with each message sent.
  • Discussion Lists. There are numerous list setting to customize each list.

We will most likely not use Lyris LM for much longer. We have recently been offered to utilize a different software that better meets our needs, is current, user friendly, and has fantastic reporting capabilities.

Alternatives Considered

Aurea LM

We selected Lyris LM based on cost, the fact that we can create custom reports and the way that they handle bounced emails just to name a few, It is easy to use and we have control of who can and cannot use. With a virtual list I can create a list or take a list down at any given time without filling out a form or contact with my provider and my list looks as if it is coming from my own server @museum.com.

Return on Investment

Aurea LM

  • Aurea as a company is mediocre with support. The former LM staff was better informed about the product.
  • LM can do almost anything you need. it's complete.
  • ROI has suffered as Aurea has not updated the product, charges a considerable amount for renewals, promises with no results.

  • Only positive ROI. Never had an issue. Couldn't run our business or clients without them.
