    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.

    Vero

    Vero tends to play nice with companies that have their websites as the primary source of truth. This allows them to send as many events as they need and develop more complex workflows that introduce conditionality into Vero emails. However, for those that rely more on Salesforce, it might have more limited applications. The product is fairly easy to use, so it's easy for multiple people on the team to pick it up and do what they need for their respective groups. On the other hand, creating email templates will require some knowledge of HTML/CSS, unless those are copied from another source. That would require another product of course that provides more robust layout editing features and templates.

    • 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.

    Vero

    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.

    Vero

    • While Vero offers some WYSIWYG editing, it's on the limited side, as it mostly allows you to edit copy, but not necessarily the layout.
    • The UI/UX has improved dramatically over the course of the last few years, but it can still lag from time to time and experience sluggishness.
    • While reliability is really good, it does have lapses from time to time that will introduce delays into emails being sent out. Once or twice, the system went completely down for a period of time.

      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.

      Alternatives Considered

      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.

      Vero

      Vero's price tag is far more attractive but for what you will find to be clear and obvious reasons. Vero has no CRM unlike HubSpot and Infusionsoft. Vero also has limited tracking unlike the seemingly endless possibilities offered from HubSpot which as we all know comes with at a significant cost, often not feasible by a small startup company.

      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.

      Vero

      • The overall costs of using Vero have been much lower than using two comparable products that handle transactional emails and newsletters, respectively. MailChimp has relatively recently integrated their Mandrill product for transactional emails, so that's worth looking at as well.
      • Using a single product for many things lowers the learning curve, as team members only have to learn one product well, rather than several.
      • While infrequent, Vero's outages have impacted our operations at times. If absolute reliability is crucial to your business, then you may have to find a larger provider with a more robust infrastructure. As mentioned, though, it hasn't been a big problem for us.
