Kochava

It's well suited if you are confused about your marketing spending and efficiency, or if you wish to scale up digital marketing spends etc.
It's not suited if you aren't doing any marketing spends on paid channels.

SimpleTexting

SimpleTexting is great if you want, as the name suggests, simple mass texting capabilities. It isn't too complicated, it's easy to use, and it does what it advertises. The number for people to sign up is easy to remember (555888) and it's easy to set simple keywords. If you're looking for something more robust with all sorts of nuanced capabilities, this may still work but you may want to look somewhere else

SimpleTexting

  • SimpleTexting provides excellent value based on their messaging packages but also by allowing its customers to utilize multiple keywords. This is helpful for our organization because we utilize this software across many different departments.
  • SimpleTexting analytics and reporting is a key strength of the software. The numbers they report weigh heavily on what we determine as a success of un-successful communication campaign.
  • SImpleTexting has excellent customer service available at the click of a button. Their team has always been available and offered solutions when we have had questions or run into a problem.

Cons

Kochava

  • The dashboard is still basic as compared to other competition, can be improved.
  • It's a bit complex to setup and manage and needs dedicated tech team bandwidth.
  • Rest all is good.

SimpleTexting

  • A lot of glitches and bugs, with promised fixes that keep dragging on for some time.
  • Mobile notifications are very buggy. You have to keep force-closing the app and re-opening it multiple times to get the notifications to refresh.
  • Constant toggling of 'Unread' and 'All' on mobile or desktop to get the notifications to clear and show up as opened, otherwise it will imply it's not read.
  • Also, sometimes new notifications don't show up.

They have been a bit slow in responding, that's the only reason for the low rating. Otherwise, they are smart and helpful.

Anything I have contacted SimpleTexting, they have been very quick to respond and have provided great customer service. I am happy to know as a customer that if there is ever an issue, it will be solved in an expeditious manner. Their customer service is A plus and couldn't have been better.

Alternatives Considered

Kochava

Kochava is good from pricing point of view when you scale up. Both are equal in terms of core features and attribution. However, UI wise AppsFlyer is better.

We used a rival company called Textedly. The experience top to bottom was better with SimpleTexting, from pricing to simplicity of features to custom service to ease of accessing data to overall functionality. Would recommend SimpleTexting over many competitors in a heartbeat because of their solid service and product.

  • It has taken a lot.of tech bandwidth for integration.

  • ROI was instant. Given SimpleTexting's pricing model - I never felt like this product was out of my budgeting scope or I need to heavily consider how my return was going to be impacted. Their pricing model allowed me to be super flexible in trying new strategies with SimpleTexting until one worked better than the rest.
