Mailjet reimagines how teams do email, launching a collaboration toolkit that aligns with the modern workplace

October 3, 2018

NEW YORK, Oct. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Joining the ranks of Slack, Google Docs, and Trello, Mailjet, the email service provider behind Microsoft, AVIS, Kia Motors and Product Hunt, launches real-time team collaboration capabilities for the email sector. Complex teams now benefit from innovation aimed at solving their need for transparency, speed, and control as the workplace becomes more team-based and dispersed.

Team sizes are swelling, putting productivity at jeopardy

A new international study has found that 82% of respondents have experienced growth in the size of their marketing department over the last two years, yet poor collaboration is among their top pain-points. As a result, team members are making costly mistakes including submitting projects without approval (37%), misunderstanding instructions (51%) and making modifications where they shouldn’t (43%).

It’s not just team size that’s causing friction, it’s also broadening skill sets. In a separate study, more than half (59%) of marketers cite working with developers at least multiple times each week.

Email is #1 to reach customers, but behind in adapting to complex teams

When it comes to reaching customers, email marketing (59%) outranks even the most modern channels including cookie-based advertising (43%) and Facebook ads (39%). That said, email has been slow to keep up with collaborative workplaces where up to 10 people (internal + agencies) are cited as working together on marketing campaigns.

“Over a year ago, we stopped and looked at the way teams were working,” says Nicolas Garnier, Product Manager at Mailjet. “Working together, and on platforms that facilitated this, was the norm. Given that 44% of marketers collaborate with their team and agencies every day on email marketing campaigns, the email industry needed to innovate more than anyone.”

Why Mailjet’s Collaboration Toolkit changes things

For the first time in the email industry, email creation, sending and management have been reimagined for teams:

-- Real-Time Collaboration & Commentsto iterate and validate faster. -- Locked Sections & Publication Requestsfor full control on branding and content. -- User Managementfor transparency when working with many team members and agencies.

Complex teams will now improve the control, transparency, and time to market they need when it comes to email.
