Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Pros

  • Allows for pretty robust audience rules.
Nichole Aramapakul | TrustRadius Reviewer

  • Email tracking
  • Easy to use

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.

SimplyCast

  • Templates need updating
  • Uploading list is a bit tedious

Alternatives Considered

Cordial

Cordial by far has the best UI for simple navigation

SimplyCast

I use both SimplyCast and Act-On. Act-On ties in with our database, I use SimplyCast in order to send e-mails that don't look exactly like our other e-mails

Return on Investment

Cordial

  • Best to manage your clients' business.
  • Not ideal for freelancers.
Mohammed Anzil | TrustRadius Reviewer

SimplyCast

  • We do get responses from our e-mails
  • Do not get a lot of information like we do from Act-On
