    Likelihood to Recommend

    Autoklose

    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.

    MessageGears

    MessageGears can be a solid, inexpensive email solution and you can be able to send millions of emails per year. In 2020, we delivered over 235 million emails at a fraction of what that would cost with any other email service provider. We worked with MessageGears on a custom solution with our database.

    Pros

    Autoklose

    • It is helping in editing, managing, and send[ing] out large marketing campaigns.
    • It is easy to handle multiple emails in appropriate sequence.
    • Our company [has been] using this for a very long time. It is one of the perfect email solutions we found for our organization.
    • I have been very much impressed by their support staff.

    • The MessageGears Support team is very helpful.

    Cons

    Autoklose

    • 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.

    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    Our situation is unique so I believe we are working on a semi-outdated UI which needs a tune up / version upgrade. Similarly, our custom connection means that we do not have access to the full feature set so I've never experienced MessageGears' best functionality

    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.

    MessageGears support is always quick to respond when we have an issue, which is rare. Gail has been our main rep and she has been great. We don't have many issues so luckily, we don't need to lean on their customer support team much. That said, it would be beneficial to hear from upper management more.

    Alternatives Considered

    Autoklose

    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.
    Thomas Olesen | TrustRadius Reviewer

    MessageGears

    MessageGears doesn't come close to Salesforce Marketing Cloud. We chose MessageGears based on how data was accessed. We never really got a good preview of how the system works or what was available, so we didn't know everything that it was lacking until we started using it.

    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

    Autoklose

    • 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.

    • Sending more email!
    • Onboarding handoff was a little rough
    • Great control on who we are sending to
    • Dynamic content is very easy!
