How SAS® Is Different

Only SAS provides a full-featured e-mail marketing solution that is integrated with a full-featured campaign management solution, enabling you to implement a customer-focused, cross-channel digital marketing strategy that aligns with your broader marketing strategy.


  • Boost productivity, lower operating costs. Execute integrated e-mail, mobile and Web (e.g., RSS, pop-up) campaigns quickly and easily with a Web-based solution that uses wizards to guide you through the entire digital content creation process. Digital asset hosting enables easy sharing, retrieval and deployment of content for all your digital channels. The highly scalable, grid-enabled technology uses existing hardware investments, and integration with the broader SAS Customer Intelligence suite provides more efficient execution of cross-channel marketing campaigns.
  • Improve ROI with enhanced campaign effectiveness. Produce campaigns more quickly and effectively by consistently delivering content and personalization across digital channels while avoiding conflicting offers. Accurately track and discern between technical and customer-driven responses to ensure that your digital marketing results are consistent with other marketing activities. And use RSS support for customers who want to hear your message without sorting through their inbox.
  • Increase efficiency through reliable delivery. SAS Digital Marketing integrates with many leading mail transfer agents and provides plug-in access to SpamAssassin for spam screening and CAN-SPAM compliance. Message/domain throttling keeps you off white and black lists. Flexible unsubscribe support lets you set rules to prevent customers from inadvertently unsubscribing to more communications than they intended, allowing you to keep longer customer lists.
  • Achieve greater customer satisfaction. Build stronger, more profitable customer relationships by increasing the level of trust between you and your customers. Improve the customer experience by respecting customer preferences, using each customer's preferred channel, and providing only the information the customer wants to receive, when they want to receive it.


  • Easy-to-use, in-line content editor lets you edit and test content for multiple channels simultaneously.
  • Content editing supports a high degree of reusability and easy customization – push a button to insert a variable, "IF" statement, image and more.
  • Personalize messages and subject lines using conditional content and data.
  • Defaults to standard content (e.g., "Dear Customer") when conditions are not met.
  • Easily use content from your favorite editor (Dreamweaver, Photoshop, etc.).
