      “Too many cooks – not enough integration.”

    • Summary
      Increased uptake in some areas of best practice, but many companies are still failing to do the basics, including testing and basic steps to improve deliverability.
      On-going struggle to integrate email with other parts of the business so that it doesn’t function in a silo. The desire is often there, but not always the technology or the know-how to join things up.
      Email remains a fundamental channel for engagement and for ROI. Companies are taking a big gamble if they don’t invest resources here.
