Staffbase GmbH
Bananatag is very well suited to creating messages that are going to be used on a regular basis but don't require much in the way of changing or amending. It is also a very handy platform to track sending emails and the watermarking technology is very handy. As far as range of designs compared to something like Mailchimp it doesn't compare well.

FollowUp works great for lead follow-up, as well as for colleague followup, and you can't forget about client followup, it is all great when you need a record or a reminder for any email that you send or one that you just do not want to worry about right now but still need to respond to.

Pros
Staffbase GmbH
  • Easy to use and install, particularly with Gmail for business.
  • It has a simple feedback system, if a client reads an email, you get an emailed read receipt telling you the time of them doing so.
  • It runs in the background, is virtually undetectable and will not hinder any communication in the slightest.

Support Rating
Staffbase GmbH
Have not really had many opportunities to use the support function but my experience was limited and a little bit clunky. It was not particularly responsive or helpful in terms of trying to resolve the query I was working on. I think the problem was solved by another member of the team that worked on designing their own template.

Staffbase GmbH
Bananatag is a free-standing application that plugs into your email service provider. As such, you do not need to be logged into another application to see the results or the real-time tracking of emails like you would with other email trackers. The free application is great if you just need to track a few outbound emails, but the paid plans offer a much more robust tracking service that would allow you to get any and all information you could desire from an email being tracked
