SparkPost Introduces Data-Driven Email Intelligence Platform

May 16, 2019

SparkPost, an email delivery and analytics service, announced SparkPost Signals, which it says is the first email intelligence platform that analyzes the behavior of trillions of emails to predict email engagement and delivery health. It allows marketers to optimize their email delivery based on predictive analytics and machine learning to maximize revenue and avoid costly outages. Signals represents a major advancement in email analytics, as SparkPost works to transform the email delivery market with data.

Customers include Zillow, The New York Times,, Ebates, and Zynga. Signals is powered by the industry’s largest email data footprint, based on SparkPost sending more than 37% of the world’s B2C and B2B email. Signals is available today for SparkPost’s three industry-leading email delivery platforms: SparkPost Cloud, and PowerMTA and Momentum on-premises email software.

Signals is the first platform to offer predictive engagement alerts to email health problems before they cause business interruption, delivery problems or email outages. Email senders also can learn from and benchmark their own performance against the industry-specific aggregate data generated by senders across the entire SparkPost platform.

Core features of the new platform include:

  • Health Score and Alerting—Proactively monitors email delivery health in comparison to other senders in the SparkPost Cloud. It allows customers to track their health by inbox provider and sends alerts to customers when a delivery health problem arises so they can take immediate action.
  • Spam Trap Reporting—Hitting spam traps has a strong negative impact on email performance. SparkPost Signals provides the industry’s broadest visibility across multiple commercial and non-commercial spam trap networks. Spam Trap Monitoring helps reduce risk and remedy problems before they cause sending outages.
  • Engagement Recency—SparkPost Signals monitors engagement data, unsubscribes, spam trap hits, bounces and complaints to highlight the impact of sending to various cohorts of recipients, such as engaged vs. non-engaged recipients.
  • Integration with SparkPost Email Platforms—Signals integrates seamlessly with the SparkPost cloud email delivery service, as well as Momentum and PowerMTA on-premises software.
