Welcome On Board, Mandrill Customers
26 Feb 2016
Dear Mandrill Users,
We understand that some of you are disappointed with MailChimp’s announcement about turning Mandrill into a paid “add-on” product starting April 27th. After investing significant time and energy into sending the best transactional emails through Mandrill, you are now faced with the decision of whether to adopt a new product (Mailchimp) and the price-hike imposed on you, or find another solution to send the important transactional emails that your business depends on.
We think you might like us
Delivering transactional email has been in Mailjet’s DNA since our conception in 2010. Our world-class delivery infrastructure has been fine-tuned to send billions of transactional email at jet-speed. As such, businesses and organizations of all sizes from more than 150 countries have relied on our secure email delivery engine, SMTP and powerful API to pilot their transactional emails to the inbox. With 7 offices worldwide, we serve our customers from Paris, New York, London, Berlin, Sofia, Toronto and Ho Chi Minh City and specialize in global email deliverability.
In our commitment to improve the transactional emailing experience, we’ve recently enhanced our drag-and-drop email editor, Passport, to create and edit responsive transactional emails that are visually impactful and personalized to each transaction. This makes the collaboration between any company’s marketers and developers much more efficient, visual and dare we say, fun!
As an industry leader in innovation, Mailjet has also developed MJML, a brand new approach to responsive email development, packing five years of email design expertise into a lightweight and semantic syntax. We even made this open-source, since we believe that email development must not be limited to experts. Email development should be accessible to everyone through simple yet powerful tools.
