Our current primary 3rd-party partner for sending out survey invitation emails (as well as any other emails that get sent from the CustomerGauge platform – see full list below) is SendGrid. Currently some parts of the SendGrid infrastructure (as at Feb 2021) are in the US geography. As an alternative, we have a secondary sender infrastructure based on the Amazon AWS SES which is wholly in the the EU region. This maybe used as an option to send out your survey invitation emails (primary and reminder) and some manual emails.
This option applies to surveys that are sent out in accordance with your configuration in Setup --> Delivery Manager, in combination with a transactional survey data upload (be that via API, integration, or spreadsheet/csv upload). A full breakdown of all the emails that CustomerGauge can send and whether or not they can be sent via SES is shown below.
