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.

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.
