"When making the transition from basic email systems to full-scale marketing automation it's important for marketers to find solutions that are intuitive and accessible," said Ian Michiels, Principal Analyst at Gleanster Research. "Ease of use is a subjective measure, so it's important to place some weight on user feedback and perception when investing in a new solution. Act-On's position in the Gleanster FLASH rankings highlights the fact that Act-On users are quite content with the blend of features/functions and overall ease of adoption."
