Benefits of LISTSERV as Software

Have IT resources and staff, large workloads or other specialized requirements, such as the need to integrate LISTSERV with in-house databases or LDAP servers? On-premises software is likely the most cost-effective choice for your organization.

 

With the on-premises LISTSERV software option, you’re responsible for maintaining the software and the servers that it runs on. You only pay the one-time fee for the license and an optional fee for technical support. Create as many email lists as your license type allows and send as many messages to your subscribers as you want, with zero delivery charges.

More Economical Long-Term: Licensing the software is usually more cost-effective in the long run, although the upfront cost of a license is higher. You can create as many lists and send as many messages as you want without additional delivery fees.

Maximum Flexibility: The software option allows you to configure your LISTSERV site to meet your organization's exact needs. L-Soft's technical support, training and consulting teams are always available for help if you need it.

Full Control: Running the software in-house gives you complete control of your operations, including the operating system and software environment. This is especially vital for organizations with complex change management policies.

Database Integration: An in-house setup makes it easier for you to take advantage of existing databases for dynamic and personalized mailings. You can also use databases and LDAP servers for authenticating credentials and user logins, which is especially helpful within large and complex organizations.

High Security: If you're operating in a high-security environment, keeping LISTSERV  on site, together with your existing databases, LDAP and Active Directory servers, makes it easier to ensure that your entire email communication system and data are secure.
