PoliteMail vs. Cerkl Broadcast

Improving your internal communications is a big ask. Make sure you have all the information to find the perfect fit for your organization.

Email

Our intuitive drag-and-drop builder makes it easy to create and schedule time-sensitive communications to the right list. Email Blasts are pre-tested on over 60 email clients and will look beautiful on each device. Schedule an email to send anytime – no need to be at your computer or for it to be turned on.

PoliteMail

Outlook plug-in that allows you to build emails within Outlook. To see how emails look on different devices, you must send a test email to those devices. To schedule a send, your computer must be logged in to your corporate network and turn on.

SharePoint

No need to replace your existing intranet. Instantly add personalization, notifications and A.I. learning with our native SharePoint web part (HTML standard plug-in for other intranets). No API or tech involvement necessary to add Broadcast Intranet Notifications & Personalization.

PoliteMail

Content created in Politemail only lives in email. Pushing to SharePoint is not an option.

Mobile

A native employee mobile app available for both iOS and Android. Includes your branding, personalized newsfeed, in-app notifications, universal content search, customizable links, A.I. learning plus many more mobile features. Priced separately so you don’t pay for something you don’t need.

Cross-Channel

Broadcast’s intelligent content delivery (patent pending) allows communicators to publish content once and have it automatically delivered to Intranet, mobile and even email. Additionally, your channels are connected meaning your employees won’t see content they’ve already consumed on a different channel.

Content created in Politemail only lives in email. Pushing to other channels is not an option.

Newsletters

Broadcast Newsletters automatically curate content into a personalized digest for each employee. Using A.I., employees receive the required content they have yet to see plus what they’re interested in. Employees can pick the frequency, look and even language they’d like it delivered in. Automatically tested on 60+ different devices for you.

PoliteMail

Design and layout your newsletter using templates or your own design. Testing must be done manually using a PreFlight test send to make sure your newsletter looks good on all devices.

Audience Management

Broadcast allows you to build dynamic segments (no IT required) based on any attribute (department, location, hire date, etc.) in your HRIS (Workday, PeopleSoft, SAP, ADP, etc.). Also supports integration with Active Directory and file uploads.

PoliteMail

Supports existing Active Directory distribution lists.

Content Management

We all hate jumping back and forth between platforms to fix a title or update a resource. With Broadcast Content Manager, you can create, distribute, search, and edit your content in one location. Focus on maximizing your team’s content lifecycle and value, not just checking a box.

PoliteMail

Content only lives in email.

Analytics

Broadcast Insights includes the ability to create unlimited, customizable dashboards based on the KPIs that matter to you. All dashboards can be shared with your team and leadership. No additional charge for access to Insights. All metrics can be exported to Excel, CSV and accessed via API.

PoliteMail

Pre-built reports for email metrics only. Reports can be exported to Excel.
