Meeting Service Providers’ Demanding Email Delivery Needs
Software as a service? It’s a done deal. Service providers are the backbone of today’s cloud economy. That’s why we developed SparkPost for Service Providers to meet the strategic and operational needs of these modern businesses.
Combined with our Premium or Enterprise service levels, SparkPost for Service Providers is a comprehensive service offering that includes burst capacity and uptime guarantees; a dedicated Technical Account Manager; full-service deliverability and ISP relationship management; and key features such as subaccounts, provisioning automation, and compliance tools.
Start Investing in Growth, Not Infrastructure
Service providers know email is integral to the value they deliver. It’s what drives customer engagement and growth, and it’s key to functional capabilities like notifications and workflow.
But retaining internal responsibility for email infrastructure and delivery offers service providers little strategic advantage. Instead, operating end-to-end email delivery remains a resource-intensive function, with demanding human and infrastructural costs.
In fact, independent research shows sending email from on-premises infrastructure costs service providers 25% more than cloud email delivery. In absolute terms, cloud email delivery will save a service provider $100,000 annually for every 1 billion messages sent (Relevancy Group, 2017). Consider the technical and business burdens of maintaining in-house email infrastructure:
- The costs and depreciation of email infrastructure are significant, and a drag on business flexibility and the bottom line.
- Email generation and delivery is expensive to scale and requires constant monitoring and maintenance by dedicated staff.
- Inbox placement is crucial, but deliverability professionals are scarce, expensive, and hard to hire.
- Scaling on-premises hardware for seasonal and other regular peak delivery is expensive and requires wasted, idle capacity.
- Internal email infrastructure deployment is slow and cannot scale on demand to meet unanticipated bursts in volume or to provide for rapid growth.
- Provisioning new email infrastructure slows the onboarding of new customers and delays time to revenue.
- Maintaining email infrastructure is a distraction from core competencies and strategic differentiators.
Costs like these make clear why the fastest-growing service providers have turned instead to SparkPost’s cloud solution for service providers. We developed SparkPost for Service Providers to help service providers invest in growth and competitive differentiation, not infrastructure.
