More Free Plan to Love

Our Free Plan is more extensive than our competitors because we believe that our success is contingent on yours. We want to give you the tools and resources you need to grow, as well as the context to make an informed decision. In our experience, fewer restrictions make for smarter long-term decisions.

Flexible Options for Every Business

Whether you’re a scrappy startup or a successful corporation, deciding how and where to allocate your resources isn’t easy. Although Airship offers an array of enterprise-grade features, their high price tag can serve as a barrier to entry for small and medium-sized businesses that need a scalable growth solution now. Compared to Airship, we offer a greater variety of plans with more accessible features, so you can get exactly what you need at every step of your journey.

Quick Setup and Results

The most successful companies are able to adapt and grow at lightning speed. Our self-guided setup process and extensive documentation library is designed to help you put your ideas into action with greater agility. Whereas Airship’s enterprise solution requires a long integration and onboarding process, our SDKs are straightforward to implement, so you can start seeing value today and optimize as you go.

Transparency in Action

We believe that transparency and communication are the foundation for strong customer relationships. Unlike Airship, we’ve chosen to make our pricing model and plan details public so that you won’t encounter any surprises down the road. In an effort to respect your time and trust, we also offer self-serve purchasing options, so it’s easy to get started or upgrade your account without jumping through hoops. At the end of the day, we want to deliver on our promises in a way that respects your preferences and your budget.

OneSignal had all the features we needed out of the box, could deliver messages across both web and mobile, and presented a leaner workflow. It was a no brainer.
