Cordial

Cordial has multiple options to create a message: single campaign, automation, orchestration and sculpt templates, which are drag-and-drop type functionalities but each of these blocks are based on HTML content so a user needs to be technically savvy. I would avoid using HTML includes as it is not possible to see which include a customer received. The team is fabulous, they know the tool and are dedicated to the success of the business. They are quick to respond and provide feedback. Reporting and analytics are very manual if you are combining multiple days in a test.

Selligent

Message Studio/Selligent is great for reliably sending high volumes of both manual and automated email. The intuitive user interface promotes fast turnaround times. Aside from some data integration issues, it's the best email service provider I've used for sending large volumes of email.

Pros

Cordial

  • Provides helpful desktop and mobile previews.
  • Sends emails reliably.
  • Allows for pretty robust audience rules.

Selligent

  • StrongMail does open and click tracking very well. The detailed level of data they provide is exceptional.
  • StrongMail does failure data and bounce codes extremely well. The granularity of the information is invaluable to our business and used by us every day.
  • StrongMail's Message Studio EAS is a widely user friendly platform for technical and non-technical users alike.

Cons

Cordial

  • Some of the tasks on the platform are still technical in nature and often requires the help of a developer or technical marketer. But I've witnessed great strides towards accessibility and ease of use for non-technical marketers over the past three years.
  • A lot of the templating must be built from scratch.
  • Deliverability insights (out of the box) could be expanded further.

Selligent

We did not evaluate other products exactly. We upgraded from an inferior production to StrongMail based on demos and other people's reviews.
