Likelihood to Recommend

Kahuna

Well suited to boost customer engagement, to push for promotions, to send notifications, to do general customer relationship management, to analyze engagement patter, and to test for the best times to engage users to perform specific actions. It is not a CRM tool, so it cannot do in-depth customer relationship management. If users did not perform the required/intended action, it is not possible to see where the user deviated to. It is not a traffic or user behavior tracker, so it is not the most analytical tool to get detailed user behavior insights.

OpenMarket

OpenMarket is well suited to support enterprise SMS at scale, with a wholesale and flexible solution. Their provisioning team is great in terms of response time, and support for their products is deeply rooted in industry and technological understanding of SMS. OpenMarket would not be well suited for small companies just starting to test the waters with SMS in a low barrier way.

Cons

Kahuna

  • Additional reporting and analytics were introduced later but as a premium service.

OpenMarket

  • OpenMarket does most things well. One thing they are missing is MMS capabilities on text enabled long numbers.
  • The portal for entering shortcode program briefs is kind of clunky, it would be nice is account managers took the Word document and imported it into the tool for clients.

Alternatives Considered

Kahuna

These are the few names that I remember, but there were also a few smaller players. Kahuna offered the required features at the best pricing, their team is also very responsive in terms of reaching out, answering questions and resolving issues. The others were either too expensive or carried too many other features that we did not require.

OpenMarket

As a top tier aggregator, OpenMarket requires contracts to utilize their services, whereas other SaaS providers allow users to signup and start sending within a shorter amount of time. The benefit of using OpenMarket is the relationship, and the SLAs in availability they maintain. Other aggregators offer equal levels of service, so there are other shops in town selling the same thing with the same reliability.
