Autopilot is a multi-channel marketing automation software that lets you build personalized customer journeys and track user engagement across a number of channels. The app uses journey guides - best-practice templates that can be customized using drag and drop - to build a series of automated, event-triggered actions. Actions can include sending an email after a form is submitted, an SMS or postcard after a subscription is renewed, or updating the CRM after a lead is captured.
Autopilot captures all lead data from all of your websites, blogs, or app without the need to build landing pages. It then organizes and builds targeted marketing lists, smart segments and folders from this data which can be factored into your automated journeys. A live activity feed shows you all the behavior of your existing contacts as well as anonymous web visitors in real time. While additional insights and reporting tools show you a visual representation of web activity and the lead-to-close journey.Show more screenshots »
Autopilot was founded in 2012 by three Australian brothers. The app was built to make marketing automation accessible to all regardless of technical knowhow or business size. The company has raised 15m in funding and the app has been featured in well-known publications such as TechCrunch, Entrepreneur, and VentureBeat.
Autopilot is designed to be easier to use from a technical point of view than some of the more high-end marketing automation solutions. The app combines email marketing with the features of more robust marketing automation tools through its ability to send SMS and postal mail, build automated actions, capture leads and report on campaign performance.
With a mission not to disclude the non-tech savvy, Autopilot is modern, intuitive, and user-friendly. The interface utilizes lots of colors and visuals and the layout is clean and logical. The marketing journey guides are simple to build with support for drag and drop and self-evident icons. It is also straightforward to create professional email templates and to analyze marketing campaign performance through graphs and charts.
