Top reasons why enterprises chose Omeda as a Darwin alternative

All-in-one CDP, marketing automation and subscription management

Omeda’s CDP is the only an end-to-end audience marketing platform that includes native email and marketing automation, subscription management and a form builder in one database, so you can unify and activate your audience data in one place. Omeda also includes integrated website tracking, built-in lead generation tools, and content metering and monetization capabilities so you can further grow and monetize your data.  

Darwin and CDS Global do not have native CDP, email or marketing automation, website tracking or content monetization capabilities in their platforms, making it more expensive and time-consuming to create personalized customer experiences across channels. 

Persistent customer ID tracking

On Omeda, all work and personal emails, mobile and laptop browser cookies, website activity and mailing addresses are connected to one unified customer ID. So your customer profiles remain up to date even if someone changes job titles or contact information. Other platforms like CDS Global and Darwin lack this functionality, which makes it easier to duplicate records or contact someone at the wrong email address.  

In-house lettershop services

Omeda and Darwin partner with lettershop services for their print needs, whereas CDS Global has an in-house lettershop provider.  

Best-in-class support and ease of use

Omeda provides top-shelf customer support to help you reach your audience goals and master the platform. Our team of in-house media experts provides hands-on support with custom use cases, integration setup and APIs. However, clients can still run queries on Omeda independently, then make the data available for email, display ad and website targeting.  

On CDS Global, clients run reports through their representative and need to pay extra for each request, which could delay your marketing campaigns and reduce ROI over time.  

Content recommendation algorithms

Omeda’s content recommendations algorithm serves relevant articles to each website visitor based on their previous engagement and purchase history. So you can increase time on site and advertiser ROI while optimizing each customer’s experience — all from the Omeda platform.  

While they each incorporate predictive modeling into their platforms, Darwin and CDS Global do not have recommendation engines in their platforms, so it takes more time and resources to use your audience data for personalization and content optimization.  

Usage-based pricing

Omeda and Darwin both have all-inclusive payment plans that allow users to anticipate their budget each month, regardless of their audience size or platform usage. However, CDS Global charges users an additional fee for each report they run, which could increase your tech spend and reduce your ROI over time.  

Organizational fit

Omeda’s robust data management and marketing capabilities mean it’s well suited for any organization with a large audience that they engage and monetize with content, especially those with multiple brands, products and marketing channels to manage.   

While Darwin offers subscription management and fulfillment capabilities, their limited data management and native marketing capabilities make it better suited for single-publication organizations.  

CDS Global also includes subscription fulfillment and management, but their offering is tailored to print-only publications, making it a poor fit for those with a large digital presence.
