Xink is an advanced web portal to ensure brand consistency in Office 365 and G Suite (Gmail) email signatures across the company and across mobile devices. Its user-friendly interface makes it easy set up and run for anyone, and there is no installation on servers. The advanced API makes it easy to integrate with Active Directory/Google Directory/Azure Directory and the email signatures are updated automatically around the clock.
Use email signatures as a marketing channel and distribute targeted campaigns below the contact details to promote new products and services, highlight new assets within the content marketing strategy, promote the industry events and trade shows etc. The campaigns can be segmented and distributed to relevant geographies, departments, email receivers etc. The in-built analytics tool provides a detailed overview of best-performing campaigns, number of openings, clicks, what email client is used and much more.
The ease of installation cannot be understated as it makes setting up new users and making edits to their signatures along the way very easy. I would say the biggest pro is the administrator's ability to control their signature's as users often want to make changes on their own.
Their customer support leaves a bit to be desired. They do not have a phone number you can call and are required to create tickets online which I have had to wait more than half a day sometimes to get a response. For most mundane issues I can see that being acceptable but in an event of a serious outage that simply doesn't cut it. For example, our logo stopped showing on our signatures for all of our users.
Hi Daniel! Thank you very much for your review, we really appreciate that you took the time to review Xink.
We're of course happy to hear that you find it easy to install and use with Outlook. However, I am sorry to hear about your experience with response time with our Support. It is a vital part of our service that you should be able to reach us - especially if you should experience any problems.
We have recently introduced a LiveChat function on our website and remote support, as well as extra support staff in the US. We will continue to improve our Support services. If you have any questions or comments, you're very welcome to contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are in any marketing department, there is one bane of internal emails more painful than reply all, the complete cornucopia of email signatures. Some people are using old logos. The links don't work. They think green font in comic sans makes them look unique. None of those reasons matter to me. We are trying to make everyone else out there think we are a unified front and consistent brand, get on board people! Well, rest assured, you no longer have that headache with this gem! You can update anyone's signature remotely. Create groups by department or executive level. Should only marketing have social media icons, or does anyone do that anymore?
There was a 7/10 on the learning curve, some of the UX didn't make sense. But with any start-up, the bugs get worked out, and the experience is dialed in.
Thank you very much! We're so happy you like Xink and even call it "A Brand Manager's Dream" - that's just awesome!
And we completely agree on your thoughts - email signatures need to be managed centrally to achieve consistent impressions and brand control in the employee email signatures across the organization.
Have a great day!
We are currently using this app in our company. This is very easy to setup and use. You can have different signatures based on their position. It syncs nicely with active directory.
So far I am unable to find anything that,s a deal breaker.
Thank you very much for your review. We're thrilled to hear you find that the setup process is easy! We hope you enjoy using Xink!

Thank you very much for the review! We're so happy you like Xink, and hope continue to like the opportunities of our platform. Regarding language options, it is something we consider on a running basis and according to our markets. We appreciate your comment about a version in French - as well as the comment on pricing per user! We find the pricing model fair but we definitely keep your comment in mind.
What I like about the software is it gives me the ability to standardize our firm's e-signature and overrides any staff member attempting to make changes to it.
What I like least about the software is the manner in which it requires you to create the e-signature. It's a bit clunky and doing simple tasks during creation can become a bear.
Thank you for your review. We hear your and will work on optimizing the creation process of email signature on the Xink platform. We appreciate the comment!

Xink is the essential tool that every modern company needs in order to increase its communication consistency and campaign efficiency. This email signature management and campaign application brings the required coherence to your employees signatures and lets them schedule their campaign actions.
The software is completely cloud-based so it can be run on any browser, and it works seamlessly with the industry’s most widely used email infrastructure (Exchange, Office 365 and Gmail for Work). Marketing departments can see immediate ROI with Xink, as content distribution, lead generation and event promotion get way more effective.
Xink’s top features include an intuitive “WYSIWYG” editor, support for importing from existing html email signatures, timed and targeted campaigning, roles-based access with segmented signatures and auto-generated analytics that help people to accurately determine their efficiency and locate room for improvement.
The goal of the application is to basically relieve companies and teams from signature inconsistencies that can damage trust in the quality of the company’s brand.
The benefits of using Xink extend from the upturn of the professionalism of a company, to the heightened of its promotional campaigns impact. In any case, Xink will help companies increase their traffic and track the performance of their content over time.
The editor that Xink offers to the users is tailor made for the easy creation of email signatures. It features both a WYSIWYG and advanced html mode where the code is clearly depicted. The third mode is the preview where the result is presented.
Images from local media, or url locations that contain media can be uploaded to the editor and incorporated to the signature. This way users can add their photos, or their company logo and create a much more professional outcome. An existing signature can also be uploaded and further edited in the editor.
Communication can have significantly different purposes, so allowing users to utilize different signatures is a key feature for Xink. There are three different signature categories: default, reply/forward, optional. These are used according to administration settings and the level that these settings are applying on, but for users who are left with no assignments their subject to the “rules” template.
These settings can be tweaked either for specific people, or for whole departments of a company. This way, different rules can be set for as many individuals as you like.
Xink can be set to send promotional emails during campaigns. Using the “Campaign” package, users can easily set mass mail details such as the subject, call to action, tracking link embodiment and body text length. All this is applied to thousands of emails that may be reaching potential customers in a daily basis and the Calendar helps administrator set the duration of the campaign.
Another use for calendars is the case of event organization and attendance augmentation through promotional emails. With Xink, admins can embed the event calling to their employees’ email signatures through the Calendars and automatically promote the occurrences through regular communications.
Another important part of Xink Campaign is the automatically generated reports that show which campaigns or events generate the most interaction, and even measure this in relation to the geographic location. Using these metrics, employees can determine their campaign efficiency and spot problematic sectors or products.
Thanks to Xink’s integration with Google Analytics, users can go a step further and see exactly how the Xink-generated traffic is activated in their web pages. This is of critical importance to be able to improve your future campaigns, or even the current on the fly.
One of Xink’s greatest strengths is that it is very easy to set up. Importing all your users is one part of this initial setup, and thankfully Xink offers ways to do this either manually, or automatically. The manual way is more suitable for smaller companies with low personnel count, and is done simply through the “Add new employee” form.
For larger companies with huge employee pools, there are more sophisticated solutions that will save you tons of time and resources. One way is to use an XLSX file (Excel spreadsheet) where only the first column must be adjusted accordingly and then you can import large numbers of users in the Xink database. Another way is to use the Microsoft Azure Active Directory and choose to export to a web application option.
Xink can integrate well with widely used email and office tools such as the also cloud-based Office 365, Gmail for Work, and the popular Microsoft Outlook. This way users can benefit from the advanced signature options that Xink offers to them, while they keep using their favorite software.
On the statistics side of things, Xink can get even more informative and comprehensive by integrating with analytics packages such as Google Analytics, Omniture and WebTrends. This is essential in order to determine the content’s success, impacts and durability.
Xink comes in two different packages that include different set of features. The first one is the “Brand” package that is focused around brand consistency with signature and logos management and worldwide support through chat and email. Integration with all aforementioned software is fully enabled and supported. The package cost ranges from 480$/year for 40 users, and reaches to up to 3000$/year for 500 users.
The second and more premium package is the “Campaign” one. This includes all features and capabilities of the “Brand” package with the addition of statistical measurements and traffic generation systems. This package cost ranges from 960$/year for 40 users (people sending emails), to 6000$ for 500 users. You can also test the software using the trial version that lasts for 14 days and can be extended to any of the two packages with full content conservation (templates used, content created, signatures saved).
