Tech Set-Up

Why use your infrastructure to send emails versus our own?

The markets move fast, and so should email. If you’re the last one to the client’s  inbox, you’re already too late. Street Contxt’s email infrastructure delivers your emails with unmatched speed, reliability, and enhanced feature benefits.

  • Reduce internal spend at no additional cost. We do not charge additional fees for sending on our infrastructure.
  • Save time and frustration with automatic contact updates and bounceback management.
  • Get to a client’s inbox, not their spam folder. You will have a monitored, dedicated IP address for all your content to protect your sender reputation against spam markers.
  • Get content to clients lightning fast. We deliver 99% of emails in under one minute. We deliver a personalized email to each contact on your distribution lists, which requires far higher bandwidth than most firms can take on without additional investment.
  • Get dedicated monitoring. Our team monitors email delivery times and scales up as necessary. We proactively fix issues with unsent emails if they arise.
What do you integrate with?
  • Street Context is CRM agnostic and can be integrated with most CRMs. 
  • We are SFTP and API-enabled to connect with BI tools or Data Lakes.
  • We can also integrate with Research Publishing tools, whether you built them in house or used another vendor.
