A High-Level Comparison

Note: a Reuters report exposed the fact that Pushwoosh is Russian software, even though they present themselves as if they’re based in the United States. In contrast, OneSignal is located in the Bay Area, California.

Most companies need their messaging to do more or are strapped for dev resources. That’s how we’re different. OneSignal aims to streamline your messaging workflow across teams and departments. We combine powerful no-code tools (from segmentation to automation and testing), a fast and unlimited API, and top-notch support. And those are just a few of the reasons OneSignal is a G2 Leader for best usability, easiest setup, and enterprise.

Why onesignal types of sdks for developers

Getting Started has Never Been Easier

Although Pushwoosh offers a variety of messaging channels, the extensive onboarding process can delay implementation and undercut the value you receive from the product. It’s no surprise that customers rank OneSignals’s support quality and ease of use far above Pushwoosh. Our extensive documentation library, powerful SDKs, and dynamic integrations make it easy to start sending messages today and optimize as you go.

Outstanding Segmentation & AI Capabilities

Our segmentation features are versatile and intuitive, so you can automate campaigns and track the data that is most meaningful to your company. AI features like Intelligent Delivery make it easier to personalize and scale your messaging strategy. Pushwoosh’s segmentation features are less flexible and more time-intensive to use. Their message builder does not show the audience size of each segment, making it difficult to quickly deploy new campaigns. Their products’ limitations can make it difficult to customize and automate your messaging strategy and more challenging to gain the insight necessary to guide optimization.

Effortless Customizations & Intuitive UI

We offer more built-in customization options than Pushwoosh, so it’s easy to execute and optimize your messaging strategy with minimal effort and technical experience.

Our in-app messaging is a comprehensive product with multiple buttons, banners, and carousel cards that can be used for onboarding sequences and user surveys. By contrast, Pushwoosh has limited customizations, allowing only a single image per notification. Our features like Confirmed Delivery provide more accurate analytics, making it easier to evaluate campaign performance and identify areas for improvement. We also provide advanced analytics that capture how users engage with different message elements.

Superior Analytics

OneSignal provides top-notch analytics such as Confirmed Delivery, which helps you accurately gauge the number of devices that received your notifications, and direct and influenced opens, which help you understand how your notifications are driving user behavior. Pushwoosh, by contrast, has limited analytics and does not offer an easy way to understand who has actually seen your messages. With Pushwoosh, you often have to manually calculate click-through rate (CTR), making it more difficult for marketers to understand how campaigns performed. Pushwoosh does not track clicks or break out metrics by platform as OneSignal does.

Competitor onesignal uptime statistics

Fast & Reliable Message Delivery

When it comes to message reliability, speed, and deliverability, we hold ourselves to exceptionally high standards and consistently maintain excellent uptime. We believe that transparency is an important part of reliability, which is why we publish our uptime statistics and actively communicate industry changes and product updates.

Market-Leading Performance

OneSignal is the clear frontrunner when it comes to market share and feature rankings.

  • OneSignal has over 150 reviews on G2, Pushwoosh has only 8.

  • Capterra reviewers were only 50 percent likely to recommend Puswoosh, they were 90 percent likely to recommend OneSignal, noting our ease of use and powerful features.

  • Pushwoosh sends around 550 million notifications daily, whereas OneSignal sends over 8 billion notifications per day.

  • OneSignal is the market leader across channels. For example, OneSignal leads in web push and is trusted by over 300,000 websites, whereas Pushwoosh is only used by a couple thousand sites.
