July 14 2014 - While it is claimed the tool works well with JIRA, the connector we got wasn't very good - as such using this tool for Agile projects is not really recommended . Our agile teams spent ages trying to set up and still did not get the desired effect after many attempts.
July 5 2014 - Podio is best suited for small to mid-sized companies. The workflows shouldn't be too complicated. Podio is very well designed to easily connect with other tools, so it can fit in almost every existing tool set you might (want to) use.
June 19 2014 - WORKetc is well suited for any company with standard sales, support, employee management work flows. It may not take the place of some of the other extremely large CRM packages out there but for midsize companies it seems to work very well for the expense.
June 4 2014 - Piwik makes it easy to see which social networks are most effective for you, and the mobile data is great too. Add to this the depth of data and excellent reporting, and you have several reasons to give Piwik a try.
June 13 2014 - Select Adobe if you need a solid data structure, extensive segmentation and have requirements for data safety and privacy. Select Google Analytics if you want a free alternative and can trade in data ownership and support.
June 30 2014 - Tableau has been helpful in providing value add to enterprise-wide initiatives where we use KPI's or metrics within specific departments. It saves massive amounts of time and continuous dashboard building that used to take hours if not days to develop.
July 7 2014 - There is a learning curve, so I would recommend this to anyone with technical expertise who wants to generate quick reports. Slicing and dicing data is kind of intuitive, but being able to write and join scripts is not an everyday user skill. Simple questions like "Who?" "What?" and "When" are easily answered. Surface level calculations are also not too difficult. When you want to get into more depth with complex calculations, you definitely need support.
July 18 2014 - When considering the purchase of iDashboards I suggest you be very clear about your needs because I believe the real-time analytics, reporting features, and real-time alerts features require different licensing levels. The company is very forthright, but it is good practice to clearly state the features and number of named users your organization needs so that appropriate pricing quotes can be given.
July 12 2014 - Where you have massive quantities of data, I don't see this as a fit. Massive meaning millions of rows of data across a lot of tables. It's possible I suppose, but as you add custom fields, trying to use a simple UI like Pardot makes selections and joins tiresome.
July 21 2014 - HubSpot is very well suited to lead generation where there are specific goals determined. For B2B and for large corporate websites, if the goals are not mapped out in metrics and are mainly focused on visibility and if email marketing and other content marketing is outsourced, it may be a harder sell.
July 18 2014 - This marketing automation software platform is easy to use and well equipped to handle the needs of many business industries and environments. Are you looking for a complete marketing automation platform? If you are looking for an inbound and outbound marketing tool then this is a great option. Are you looking for something more than just an email marketing system? This has a powerful feature set for business.
July 2 2014 - I give them a 6, because it is a good product and pretty much the only game in town. I'm still unhappy with the technical support side, or I would have rated it an 8. They are extremely expensive as well.
July 21 2014 - We are very pleased with Eloqua so far and they continue to improve their product. The product has done everything that we were expecting. We are excited about some of the new features in the summer 2014 release and feel that Eloqua will continue to work to improve it's problem areas.
June 30 2014 - I gave Viralheat an 8 because I think it's a great product for marketing managers. It's easy to use, efficient, and revolutionary coming from a social media marketing standpoint. From the analytics to the timeline of the scheduled posts, Viralheat has great things to offer. I think there are several ways Viralheat can improve, but as a new company, I think they are well on their way!
July 22 2014 - All in all Shoutlet has unique benefits, but its fair share of negative aspects. The support received from our contact when we had any questions or concerns was always great. When it comes to Social Customer Service Management, I feel like this system is geared towards the management of smaller accounts being used between a low amount of people. Things start to get somewhat difficult when attempting to have multiple users working with a large number of accounts.
