While companies across all industries are turning to StrongMail’s dedicated solutions and comprehensive suite of deliverability and strategic services, the company continues to see strong momentum in media, online services, retail, financial services and technology.
The company’s aggressive growth is being fueled by companies large and small who are turning to StrongMail to overcome the limitations of outsourced email service providers, packaged applications and custom-built solutions. Available in both on-premise and hosted deployment models, StrongMail combines an easy-to-use email marketing application, high-performance delivery engine, powerful delivery tools and a wide range of deliverability, strategic and supporting services that give companies the freedom to send mailings of any size, segmented and personalized, at any time, without incremental CPM fees.
“With the lack of control and expensive fees charged by ESPs and the limited functionality and scalability of homegrown apps, it’s no surprise that high-caliber companies are turning to StrongMail’s dedicated solutions and world-class services in record number,” said Sam Cece, CEO of StrongMail Systems. “By overcoming the limitations of traditional approaches to email marketing, StrongMail is in a unique position to capitalize on increased email marketing investments that are being driven by the current economy.”
