Return Path Partner Platform

The first and only deliverability platform developed exclusively for ESPs.

Identify and prioritize deliverability problems

As an email service provider (ESP), managing email programs across all of your clients can be challenging. You spend precious time and energy logging into multiple systems to get the information that’s required to identify and prioritize clients’ deliverability problems. Wouldn’t it be great to have all of that data in one place?

That’s why we’ve built the Partner Platform. A single solution built for ESPs, it allows you to see what’s happening across your entire infrastructure. This unique platform provides both a high-level view as well as the ability to drill down for deeper insights.

The Partner Platform is a single solution that enables you to:

Holistically monitor your entire client base and diagnose issues across all email programs.

Quickly identify customers with deliverability issues, so that you can let them know they have a problem before they come to you.

Reduce the time and effort required to identify deliverability problems through a streamlined approach.

“We use the Partner Platform as part of our daily workflow to easily manage all of our clients in a single dashboard. It allows our teams to quickly identify deliverability or reputation issues so we can provide quick resolutions for our clients.”

Sophia Jacobson, Senior Director, Deliverability Services
