EF English First are the world leader in international education. They combine language training with cultural exchange, academic achievement and educational travel to deliver courses and programs that transform dreams into international opportunities.

The international and multilingual elements of the company made their email campaign creation process challenging, as emails had to be written in specific languages for each demographic. The quantity of emails that needed to be sent was also a contributing factor to the company’s need to advance their email capabilities.

Objectives

EF Education First had previously been building their email campaigns in their ESP, which was an inefficient method that required some html knowledge. Taxi for Email aimed to provide a product that would save time and integrate with EF Education First’s ESP.

Taxi realised the objective of cloning derived templates from one hardcoded master template. This would save time when building email campaigns across an average of thirty different campaign variations. These clones would then be adjustable for each of the 15 different language demographics and product line variations.

“Taxi for Email is a very user friendly system that allows us to create one great master template and then clone that template for all the different versions we need.”
