The upgrade offers enhanced reporting features that will make it possible for organizations to better analyze the results of their permission-based marketing campaigns in order to better plan and execute future campaigns.
messageREACH's enhanced reporting features provide customers with a visual summary of their e-mail campaigns, including: · Detailed reporting on "click-throughs", a key factor in determining recipients' interest in the message and assessing interest for future campaigns; · Easy-to-interpret graphical images offering visual results at-a-glance; · Report templates customized to the sender's reporting preferences; · Automated calculations of viewing information, such as percentage of recipients that can open HTML messages, an important factor in determining audience preferences. Results also can be broken down by category, such as text versus HTML; and · List validity is provided via detailed bounceback reports.
"This latest version of messageREACH offers the most comprehensive set of reporting tools available today, giving e-mail marketing professionals a powerful way to gauge the success of their campaign, and more importantly, provide them with the data to do it even more effectively the next time," said Rob Mainor, President of Xpedite. "As the market continues to develop, there are many more factors that can impact the effectiveness of an e-mail campaign, such as HTML delivery, bouncebacks, etc. messageREACH offers our customers a thorough analysis of their audience in the style and format that they prefer to further increase their campaign impact."
