Leading Internet Companies Adopt SparkPost Cloud Email Delivery Service; Now Publicly Available After Highly Successful Private Beta

Pinterest and Zillow Among Initial Customers Adopting SparkPost

Message Systems, the global leader in email infrastructure, today announced the public availability of SparkPost, the world’s most advanced email delivery service. In the short time since announcing the private beta version in November, SparkPost has already gained significant market share. Respected brands and leading-edge companies have adopted SparkPost — including Pinterest, Zillow, Bisnow, Iterable, Circonus and Movoto — with customer signups continuing to grow daily.

SparkPost offers companies of all sizes the same leading email platform trusted by the world’s largest email senders, without requiring them to install and manage their own email systems.  It is available in two editions to meet the diverse email needs of companies of any size. SparkPost.com allows organizations to easily integrate pay-as-you-go email delivery into their web and mobile applications in minutes using a credit card. For companies already sending significant email volumes, SparkPost Elite provides a dedicated instance with high guaranteed burst rates, white glove service and the ability to customize the service to suit their specific needs.

“We’re thrilled with the reception that our flagship product SparkPost has received in the marketplace,” said Message Systems CEO Phillip Merrick. “It is ideal for any company that leverages email communication to build its audience, regardless of the industry or how large or small the email volume. By offering a cloud-based version of the same email sending and delivery platform used by many of the biggest senders in the world — such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Groupon, Twitter, Epsilon, Oracle and Salesforce.com— we’re able to help a whole new class of customers build their audience in the same way we do for all of our customers, who now collectively send more than 3 trillion emails a year.”

SparkPost customers also receive the advantage of Message Systems’ Adaptive Email Network, leveraging the insight obtained from sending more than 25 percent of the world’s legitimate email traffic, resulting in uniquely optimized delivery to more than 12,000 ISPs worldwide. Combined with real-time analytics, SparkPost provides customers with the highest possible delivery rates – ensuring strong brand loyalty and customer engagement.

“Email is an important piece of our business,” said Tara Clark, director of email at Zillow. “Being a premiere customer of the SparkPost service has allowed us to achieve the high levels of reliability and performance in our customer communication channels that we expect. We are very excited to work with Message Systems.”

With the general availability release of SparkPost and the recent acquisition of Port25, Message Systems now provides on-premise and cloud-based solutions to customers of all sizes, cementing the company’s leadership position in email infrastructure.
