PushCrew is a great tool to help you notify your site's loyal reader's of new content on your site!

PushCrew is stable, easy to use, fairly configurable, and has been giving us great results!

Pros and Cons

  • Easy-to-use admin system; even non-technical team members could understand what to do without training.
  • Flexibility of configuration and visual previews of what the alert experience would be like made it easy explain options before implementation
  • Segment system and API gave us enough control to serve notifications in the right language, which was important for our multi-lingual website
  • Would've liked more options for the two-step opt-in or "soft push" UI. We ended up not using it due to the extra work it would've taken to get it to look and work the way we wanted from a design/UX perspective
  • The billing system isn't inside the admin interface, which led to some confusion when we were switching administrators
  • Built in workflow for setting up multi-lingual sites would be a boon to companies marketing in more than one language

Pros and Cons

  • Easy, guided setup.
  • Easy implementation.
  • User friendly.
  • You're able to make your changes very fast, apply them and you're ready!
  • The customer service is great, had a question after migrating to HTTPS, they provided fast and very accurate help, how to make it use on migrated site.
  • Supports mobile devices.
  • There's a little bit missing on the multi-language admin panel, only English is available, and not all of our brand managers speak English well.

I use PushCrew and I love it!

Pros and Cons

  • It easily allows distributing marketing information across registered users.
  • It is very easy to use.
  • It requires little or no knowledge (learning curve).
  • It gives us yet another angle to approach customer contact.
  • A "prettier" interface.
  • So many websites are now using the same methodology, so it has the risk of being "lost" in the crowd.
  • Because many websites are using the same type of system, it is starting to become an annoying factor when visiting websites, not unlike popups.

PushCrew brings a valuable and tangible boost to any online business

Score 9 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • Strong personalisation options through both the interface + directly through the API.
  • Automated segmentation based on website triggers (cookies, events) or other subscriber values.
  • Good visual tools to further tailor the messages to each subscriber.
  • Very good and direct support, both technical and commercial.
  • It would be great to include iPhones in the push channel, but this depends on Apple allowing it.
  • The push notification previews are not always accurate when compared to what is actually delivered on devices, so pre-send testing is necessary.

Great software but costs add up quickly

Pros and Cons

  • Simple to use interface that is very intuitive and easy to set-up your campaigns.
  • Helpful support staff with a fast response rate.
  • The product has some great features but they add to the monthly cost significantly if you want to do anything worthwhile and have a decent amount of subscribers.
  • Clearing out inactive subscribers would be beneficial as the costs is based on subscribers rather than participants in a particular campaign.
  • More features in the entry level package.

Pros and Cons

  • Sent notification: For all content push, this is a great way to keep the brand on the forefront of visitors mind.
  • Content Marketing: Blog production is expensive. PushCrew allows to leverage our spend and add to our ROI.
  • Customer relationship: This is a good way to establish a deeper connection with potential and existing customer by creating a welcome drip and connect multiple touch points.
  • Templates: Lots of campaigns could be made as templates to accelerate implementation.
  • Rollout time: Past easy sign-up, it does take time to put everything together and master the tool. It is not "that easy."
  • Marketing campaigns: Pushing promotional content is with Enterprise version. A basic version would be nice.
  • Analytics: Analytics on content would be good (top pages...)

Great push notifications platform for mid range technical ability

Score 8 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • PushCrew does well with providing simple instructions to drop code into the site.
  • PushCrew helped quickly resolve issues with some settings that weren't exposed to my login.
  • I can tell they are based somewhere on the other side of the world, so when it's middle of the day here in the USA, they aren't always very responsive.
  • There have been a couple hiccups with billing issues that mainly stemmed from them not having an internal billing system, but had it outsourced to another company.

Pros and Cons

  • User friendly. The interface is very clear in general and setup everything just need couple of minutes.
  • Easy to implement in any site. The code just need to be pasted in the with anything else.
  • No coding needed. For peoples not very into programming this is the best, very intuitive.
  • Apple devices need more work. In general any integration with Apple is really difficult, but even then PushCrew support Safari.
  • Real time statistics. Usually every camping is delayed 24hr, which for some people can be a problem.
  • More customization. In general everything admit modifications, but would be great to have a in-app editor for photos, etc.
