Gammadyne Corporation
Our email campaigns are simple (we don't require automation) and we don't have a big box CRM. For us, Gammadyne works perfectly. It's simple and cost-effective.

I feel that this is a very good email marking system. You really can accomplish any task needed for your email marketing needs. I think that if a few key features were added, it would really take Lyris HQ over the top. We are very happy with this product and we tell our clients about it when they ask us.

Implementation was one of the most painful parts for us as we had to find and create our own library to interface with Lyris's SOAP API interface which still to this day is one of the top libraries used in its language.

  • The ability to quickly communicate with our clients via email is always a positive.

Aurea
  • More defined lists for third party blasts, which turns into more leads for the clients. Which is more money in our pocket.
  • Some segmentation pulls do take a long time, thus leading to multiple requests and a time suck for myself.
