Key Features 

Launch Calendar 

Easily coordinate email campaigns with the new launch calendar. The calendar view gives visibility into all sent and scheduled campaigns at a glance. Include launches from the whole account, a particular workspace, a project, or just a user. View by day, week, month, or year.

Benchmark Reporting 

See how email measures up to other campaigns across an entire MessageFocus account. Performance is indicated via thumb up, or thumb down icons in the Campaign Reports. Results are based on how well a particular campaign has done against the average.

Compare results against other workspaces or projects over a selected period of time. Get an instant rating of performance for delivery, open-rate, clicks, unsubscribes, and conversions.

Updated Heatmap 

The new, improved heatmap continues to give a great visual overview of the most clicked links in a campaign. Enhancements include:

  • a slider for custom opacity
  • greater visibility into link information
  • the ability to print the heatmap for report sharing

Purchase History Filters 

MessageFocus users now have the ability to create custom filters based on transactional data. Once a contact's purchase history is in MessageFocus, users can use tags and set filters to send them targeted messages. Create campaigns based on specific products, types of product or average or total spend.

IP Authentication by Email 

Adestra customers now have another security option when it comes to data protection. In addition to IP access restrictions and OTP Tokens, clients are also able to add IP Authentication by email to their MessageFocus  account. When a user logs on from an unknown or un-authenticated IP address, they will receive an email at the account associated with their MessageFocus userID, containing an authentication link, which they must click before being allowed access to the system.

These features are all live, now, and available to existing Adestra clients. More information, including screenshots, is available at adestra.com.

Henry Hyder-Smith, Managing Director and founder of Adestra, said:

Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged. And that’s no mistake, as microservices are really nothing more than a new and improved take on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices we struggled to hammer out over the last decade. Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are ...
