User reviews have been outstanding and an impressive enterprise client list, once a secret as they have been custom branding MixMax have now been revealed. As you can see, even the likes of Google and Salesforce.com use Mixmax.

Summary

Mixmax certainly looks like a winner and I have not been this excited about a new add-on for a while. I’ve already installed it and am loving  it’s bright colours and range of features.

One thing that is missing is the ability to look up social profiles like Sidekick or Rapportive. However, I’m sure an integration is on the cards.  While I do not think MixMax will displace existing marketing automation software (like Hubspot), it could certainly pose a threat to single-feature apps like Attach.io or Boomerang.  It’s ability to integrate with Enterprise apps like CRM systems / Dropbox / Google Apps and willingness to allow custom branding will make it an attractive add-on for all users, from Startups to large Enterprises.

For a salesperson, solopreneur or small business, this could be the perfect alternative to a lefty investment in marketing automation or email marketing software.

I’ll be keeping a close watch on this one!
