Available time and (technical) knowledge in an organization for e-mail marketing

For most e-mail marketing software, technical knowledge such as HTML is needed. In many organizations there is only a limited number of people with this knowledge.

As a result of this, they are getting busier and busier and not all ideas can be implemented.

With Basedriver, we make sure that everyone in an organization can create campaigns, without technical knowledge. Making selections is automated in Basedriver, so no technical knowledge is needed.

This increases the productivity of your marketing team.
