Lyris LM is unusual in that it is only available as an on-premise version. It is an enterprise platform and is used by some large brands.

Aurea LM: "LM Review"

Score 6 out of 10
Vetted Review

We used it for sending field communications, to send to targeted users, for non sensitive communication, and by specific departments based on requirements.
  • Users and lists easy to set up
  • Segments are helpful to reuse lists
  • Administration through UI is easy
  • Tech support is limited for standard users, especially during non business hours even for critical errors
  • Installation/upgrade is often complicated
  • Version releases are too frequent
It is helpful for small/mid-sized organisations. User support of large organisations is often limited, and performance can potentially degrade.

Aurea ListManager is being used to manage and distribute information for various retail industries.
  • Reports: extensive reporting on mailings and membership. Pre-built reports/charts include Mailings, Members, Server Performance, Web site, Purchases, Interest and Surveys. If Aurea ListManager doesn't have the built-in chart needed, you can easily create your own.
  • Easy to analyze mailings: Completed mailing can be analyzed quickly. Options include viewing any errors that may have resulted, and checking list performance, evaluating recipient actions, ( opens, click-troughs). Details can be seen on a per-recipient basis, allowing you to see exactly what happened with each message sent.
  • Discussion Lists. There are numerous list setting to customize each list.
  • Interface, needs a modern look.
  • HTML Editor and built in templates. Would be nice if they added up to date templates for responsive design. It's easy to create a responsive design template but it has to be made in a different program, copied and pasted into the editor.
  • Ideally with API you can integrate LM with any other programs. Too many competing programs have this all ready done so the end user can use it immediately.
It's a good fit for companies that have several departments that need separate mailing lists under the same domain.

LM is an excellent Discussion List Medium: plenty of features (all open to customization), has searchable archives and easy for members to use.

No drop and drag features, does not look up-to-date considering what it can do.

Template creation can be a pain.

It does do marketing, Unit Price, Quantity, Product/SKU#, Interest Stage and Interest Points. You can use a purchasing script or shopping cart application can then dynamically update these variables with information about the customer's purchase, which then is sent to LM However it takes some effort to set this up.

Lyris LM is suited well with an organization or group that have several lists, as virtual list hosting is not represented by any other hosting company as far as I can tell.

Lyris LM is not a bad software, it just does not meet our needs anymore. Because we are unable to renew to a current version of Lyris for budget reasons, I have begun the process of looking into use of a new software already utilized by other departments in our office.
