Competitor multichannel solution

Robust Capabilities Across Channels

Iterable’s primary focus is email marketing. Although they offer a good email product, their other channels are less advanced and customizable. In comparison, we are a true multichannel messaging provider in every sense of the word. The quality and flexibility of our product is the reason why we’ve earned the trust of over 250,000 mobile apps and 300,000 websites.

Industry mobile onboard your users to success

Dynamic Mobile-First Solutions

We’re heavily favored by mobile-first companies and have earned the trust of over 500 times more mobile apps than Iterable.

Our in-app messaging solution is more advanced and easy to use and gives you greater control over message layout, content, and design. In the OneSignal dashboard, non-technical users can create rich in-app messages without being experts on HTML or CSS. Alternatively, developers can still use HTML and CSS for advanced customization.


Flexible API & SDK Options

Our API offers a powerful way to send personalized messages at scale and build effective user engagement strategies. Comparatively, Iterable has limited capabilities for sending messages via their API and messages must be sent to specific users or pre-defined lists.

In addition, Iterable does not provide SDKs for many popular development platforms, including React Native, Flutter, or Unity, making it much harder for developers to integrate with the product.


Reliable Messaging & Analytics

We pride ourselves on message reliability, speed, and deliverability. Our analytics suite includes conversion tracking and integrates with solutions such as Google Analytics, Firebase, Mixpanel, and Amplitude to meticulously track and aggregate customer data. Our advanced analytics features such as Confirmed Delivery, direct and influenced opens, and subscription tracking will give you a more accurate and nuanced understanding of your message performance.

Seamless Setup

We provide extensive documentation, powerful SDK’s, and dynamic integrations to streamline the implementation process. Despite catering to marketers, Iterable’s platform is complex and their limited documentation can make it more difficult to implement the tool and learn how to use each feature. Compared to OneSignal, Iterable has a much longer onboarding timeline, which can delay the amount of time it takes to reap value from the product.

Email create emails

Intuitive Interface

Our dashboard is designed to be intuitive to use from day one, so productivity and collaboration aren’t blocked by a steep learning curve. Iterable’s UI can create a barrier in effectively creating and executing your campaigns, since it’s complicated to learn. Our flexible, straightforward UI is a key reason why we outscore Iterable in ease of use, key feature ratings, messaging optimization, and platform satisfaction.

I’ve experienced a rocky implementation process with other tools. One of the main selling points with OneSignal was the ease of implementation and support — from working with sales to actually implementing the product.
