Sometimes, people prefer to just respond to an email and say: “unsubscribe,” “I have some questions,” “I’d like a group discount” or “I am having a problem.” With Yes-Reply we can classify the action and create entries in the CRM turning auto-response into actionable data!


MetroMail extracts out all the attachments from the email inbox and creates a nice gallery of it (for images and any multimedia). MetroMail sorts all the documents and layouts it with nice preview for easy access, it identifies important documents like bills / invoices and lets you make the payments from within the inbox! It just makes the life easy!
