    It is a platform with all the requisite features to meet the needs of a complete digital marketing campaign: email marketing with countless automation rules, pop-ups that serve as simple sign-ups or even as cross-sell and up-sell tools, push notifications with ready-made templates for vital functions like browse and cart abandonment, the ability to create offsite landing pages, creation of Facebook ads, and much much more. I really can't think of one scenario in which ContactPigeon won't provide solid solutions.

    We used the Manticore Marketing Automation solution for almost/just over 2 years, and initially, it was a great solution. Everything just seemed to work. When Manticore Technology, Inc. and Sales Engine International merged on May 31st of 2012, the overall product quality began to decline.As browsers and other programs (like our CRM environment) went through updates and new releases, Manticore just didn't keep up. Parts of the program became incompatible with certain browsers, forcing us to change where and how we logged into the back-end of the system. It was a silly workaround, but not the end of the world. When we learned that other client-facing portions didn't work with certain browsers, we brought it to their attention, and were told that we needed to find some way to work with it, and that the changes to the system were not possible. We ended up having to change our 200+ landing pages/forms, and could no longer have the State/Province field as a required field for registrations. That is just one example of our experience, and there have been others that are just as troublesome.

    • Custom templates are available for purchase and are great for branding.

    Cons

    ContactPigeon

    • The UI is too complex sometimes (hopefully their support is always there for us!)

    • List Building for Resends - I like to resend my email campaigns to non-openers and there is no easy way to pull this list within Manticore (If did not open this email is not an option). Typically I pull the report for the campaign, then re-import my list of non-openers to create a new list.

    I've been incredibly pleased with Manticore/SEI and have selected them at several companies now. It's worked in a variety of different business environments, both big and small, and everyone on both the sales and marketing side have been extremely pleased with the results

    Some of the actions require you to be in a specific section before actions are available to you, like adding a list. You first have to navigate to that section for options to be available to you

    Email campaigns are deployed instantly when you launch, unlike other Marketing Automation tools I've used in the past that queue emails in batches and can take hours to complete a send

    Training was done online, but was one-on-one, giving me a lot of time to ask very specific product questions. They also walk you through setting up a test campaign, email, and landing page

    It was the easiest integration and implementation that I've ever experienced. I've implemented other CRM integrated services before that provided the same services as Manticore that were extremely technical and expensive to integrate with Salesforce.com or Microsoft CRM Dynamics, or just plain couldn't integrate

    We migrated to Marketo approximately 6 months
    ago, and were extremely happy with the change. Besides the higher sticker
    price and the "everything's a sales pitch" communications from
    Marketo, we can't find any fault.

    Sales
    Engine International - Manticore (commonly referred to as Manti-beast
    internally) created many problems for us. And while they did integrate
    with our Microsoft Dynamics environment, the software quickly ate through our
    purchased storage and forced us to constantly purchase more. That alone
    cost us many hundreds of dollars in Microsoft Dynamics CRM storage every year.
    And, when confronted about it, Manticore support flat out lied about how
    much storage their activities were taking up in our system. So, while it
    integrates, it's a very poor integration.

    • Errors in forms led to a decrease in registrations - found workaround to correct it, but was never informed of certain incompatibilities
    • Reports have been inaccurate and very inflexible, and have not allowed for reliable forecasting/planning
