Localytics

For the price and the features available, Localytics is one of the best options. It is more robust in areas that we don't need it to be and overall there could be simpler flows for sending push notifications or performing actions that you need to do every week. Also, the data it sends back on how push notifications perform is basically useless. There needs to be more explanation on the impact notifications have on users. The data would always say that notifications drove less engagement but we would see engagement go up every time we sent a notification.

Zipwhip

I really dislike Zipwhip, especially now that there are so many more options out there. If you are still using a landline or a desk phone, but need the ability to receive/send text messages from your phone number, this would work well for you still. Besides that, I can't see many reasons to use this product anymore. Things like EZtexting offer these same functions and more. Or even better, Dialpad offers the voice and text options for one price.

Pros

Localytics

  • Great web interface which provides a couple of levels of pivoting and filtering of data
  • Straight-forward integration for simpler use cases
  • Access to raw data through S3 for use in your own data pipeline

Zipwhip

  • Scheduled texts - when scheduling an appointment, we schedule a text to be sent prior to this appointment
  • Automations - we can set up auto texts and responses

Cons

Localytics

  • The biggest thing I would like to see with Localytics is the capability for more correlations. The limited amount of correlations available does restrict the type of analyses that could be done with the data.
  • An easier interface to move data into Microsoft Excel would be very useful, rather than creating annoying workarounds.
  • More/better automatically scheduled reporting, as well as an Excel plug-in to access the data rather than being restricted to the Localytics interface.

  • I would like the quick-use app that pulls from the taskbar to be able to hold more characters- It can only do 250 while the main screen can do 600.
  • The ability to send video through this program would significantly enhance its functionality for us.

There is a lot of competition. I would renew if there isn't anything more exceptional that would justify the re-coding and implementation load costs

It was very easy for users to use, straight forward, and user friendly. The desktop app is very basic but easy to reply to an incoming text, but the user had to know to allow Chrome notifications to see new incoming text via the web browser, which is how they mainly used it.

It would take several weeks to hear back from the billing team. It took 3 months to resolve an invoice last year. Their technical support is very responsive. I would typically get a response in under 24 hrs.

We have not used other products but are going to start exploring making a switch to a new platform.

Enabling the business number is a key feature for us. Also, their pricing is all inclusive which is super helpful and a lot easier when it is not per text pricing model for our kind of business and reselling.

Return on Investment

Localytics

  • Was our first provider of user-level event data
  • Allows for many users to easily answer their own questions before making requests of the data team
  • Raw data dumps gave the data team the ability to provide more in-depth analyses.

  • Much quicker responses = greater technician efficiency = more profit.
  • Serving as a legal record of approved or declined services has saved us from a couple of very bad situations.
