User Testimonials

If someone only runs a campaign using email and telephone communication, Autoklose is perfect, and I highly recommend it. If someone uses a more diverse set of tools and wants a more complex type of sequence, Autoklose does not allow their users to program communication tools that some other tools and software allow.

Mautic is not Salesforce or Dynamics of course; it is hard to install, still buggy and you have to know what you're doing if you want to use it. But that is your admission fee to an always free system that does essentially all the same things as the pricey alternatives, does it effectively and gives you total control. Mautic was acquired by Acquia, the company behind Drupal, and has been making substantial upgrades since that seem to be accelerating. The system has an active user community, active development and will only get better, making it an excellent choice to grow with and build your own systems around and never be dependent on third parties

Cons
VanillaSoft
  • AutoKlose uses your own email, (e.g. Microsoft Outlook), so it runs the risk of exceeding the Microsoft Message Rate Limit, which can be problematic for your Outlook account.
  • Additional throttling limits for the SMTP Authentication protocol are:
  • 30 messages per minute
  • Recipient rate limit of 10,000 recipients per day.
  • Exceeding these limits will cause the following issues:
  • Exceeding the per minute limit causes email delivery delays, any excess in message submission will be throttled and successively carried over to the following minutes.
  • Exceeding the per day limit causes the following error message:
  • 554 5.2.0 STOREDRV.Submission.Exception:SubmissionQuotaExceededException.

  • Setting up the email templates has required hiring a professional. The templates that are provided are not fully responsive.
  • More responsive form templates are needed.

Usability
VanillaSoft
Whether it's setting up integrations, creating email campaigns, managing conversations with prospects, Autoklose is a well-designed tool that provides clarity along the way for users to find their bearings, and understand what to do. The help documentation is excellent, the support is great, but the tool is built in a way that simply makes sense when you're using it.

Our Autoklose rep is amazing! Jelena has always gotten back to us within 24 hours, despite living on a different continent. She is completely proficient with the tool and is usually able to answer our questions with a brief email or short virtual meeting.

I think that I have already said it, Autoklose has much better support and is really quick to set up and use compared with any of the other systems that I have used over the years.

Infusionsoft, at the time I tested it, had a crazy editor--very unintuitive and not very clean. Mautic (open source) makes it much easier to build up campaigns. Besides that, it didn't provide what we needed to justify the lack of possibility to self-host it and the requirement to pay for it.

Scalability
VanillaSoft
It's expensive to have a single seat for each salesperson, so the alias feature will be the perfect addition to this product.

Return on Investment
VanillaSoft
  • I feel the increased prospect engagement and business opportunities created supported the cost. In my industry 1 customer can support positive ROI.
  • I saw an overall increase in mass emailing effectiveness and we were able to automate majority of our campaigns which increased productivity for marketing & sales.

  • We made our ROI back within a year.
  • Fulfills our needs and our client's needs, our clients love it.
  • I would just add more templates to the email construction selection, other than that, it is just perfect.
