Hey Guys! Thanks for adding us, Craig. I started developing Aboardly out of my own need. Every product I have ever worked on has had the same problem - it's a real pain to set up automated emails (for anything other than welcoming). It usually consists of setting up a crontab and setting dirty flags in the database. Aboardly makes setting up automated emails a breeze. Integrate with it once, from there on you can let the marketing people define their own rules in the Web UI. Let me know if you have any feedback or questions!

Rules and event creation looks really good! How do you handle delivery and reporting?
Serge HerkülMaker@_sergeh · I build things @teamweek & @scaledrone
@domydeal Delivery is handled by Mandrill. Reporting system is built in-house (under the "Activity" tab in the dashboard).

@shanehvizdzak How does this differ from Mixpanel's notifications?
Serge HerkülMaker@_sergeh · I build things @teamweek & @scaledrone
@vallelungabrian I don't know too much about Mixpanel's notifications but at first glance Aboardly has a more powerful rules engine (it terms of defining when an action occurred). Also I guess Mixpanel is more of a complete analytics tool, which can be either a good or bad thing for you.
