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.

The free Reachmail account (which I have used for several small organizations) is a good tool where there are limited or zero email marketing dollars, a contact audience of up to 5,000 subscribers, and a max of 15,000 monthly emails. The pricing levels are really reasonable for volume requirements, including custom plans for infrequent mailings. If there are constraints (time and/or design experience) that require a large choice of ready-made contemporary templates without graphic or font modifications, then this probably isn't a good email marketing tool.

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.

  • I like the tutorials they have helped figure most of my issues out
  • The formatting text gave me lots of issues before I saw the tutorial it was a little complicated
  • Not to many bad things to say really, even customer service is fast, maybe it could be faster?

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.

In the past I've used both Salesforce and QuotaFactory (now defunct) to send mass emails and both are far superior in presentation, if not functionality. Reachmail is probably fine when you have graphical content but for text emails it just doesn't stack up. I'll look into other options now that I've tried Reachmail and see that is a terrible option for sales teams.

Scalability

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.

  • Using ReachMail saves me a lot of time, and time is money.
  • When I have a question, I can usually reach their customer service immediately, instead of having to postpone a mailing campaign.
