SendGrid Benefits

Benefits

The main benefits of SendGrid are its deliverability, its scalability, and its reliability. Read on to know more of its benefits.

Companies that need help in managing their transactional emails can look to SendGrid for help, as this cloud-based email delivery service does this while following anti-spam regulations at the same time. Some of the email types that SendGrid manages include sign-up confirmations, friend requests, email newsletters, and shipping notifications. Besides that, SendGrid can also manage feedback loops, Internet service provider monitoring, domain keys, and sender policy framework.

Other things the tool can do include CAN-SPAM compliance, open rate reporting, and link tracking. Spam reports, email opens, unsubscribes, and bounces can also be tracked by businesses using SendGrid, with no coding necessary.

SendGrip strips large scale sending of corporate emails of their complexity and the deliverability of a business’s application-generated email is improved.

Email expert Paul Kincaid-Smith, whose experience working with email and spam spans nearly 30 years, is part of SendGrid’s team that handles email compliance and deliverability. Through an industry association dubbed the Messaging Anti-Abuse Working Group, the team works against forms of email abuse like mobile spam, phishing, and denial of service attacks.

Over 4,000 emails per second are effectively sent by SendGrid, with over 400 billion sent to date.

Round-the-clock customer support is available to SendGrid users, which can be reached either via email, chat, or phone. It is a 25-member team who over the past year has corresponded over 175,000 times with customers.
