July 12 2014 - The best scenarios would be email marketing campaigns such as eBlasts, Evites and newsletter/notifications. I believe Streamsend would be less appropriate for overall branding campaign and strategy.
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.
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 28 2014 - Overall this is a great product. There are some points in which we would like to see Wiredrive improve or add features to; but as far as any parts of Wiredrive that we don't like, there aren't any.
Engineer in Research & Development at a Medical Devices company with 5001-10,000 employees
July 29 2014 - I would recommend MindManager for brainstorming and organizing ideas. It is well suited for creative thinking. Learning takes a little time and users may need some guidance on how to create effective mind maps.
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.
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.
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.
Program Manager in Product Management at a Utilities company with 11-50 employees
July 29 2014 - If you use PRWeb already and are looking for a tool that integrates well with that program and offers additional functionality with email and social media then Vocus is great. If you don't use PRWeb or prefer an email tool with more functionality and ease of use, Vocus is not the best choice.
June 27 2014 - Hatchbuck is a reliable company to do business with. When they make changes and improvements to the program, they notify us by email to advise of the update so we are aware of any changes. Changes made also do not drastically alter the performance, look or feel of the site itself, just allow it to run better and do more.
July 11 2014 - I have only had significant experience with Google Analytics (GA) and WebTrends in this space. Overall - it is easier to learn and modify GA reports as a casual user - I always struggled with the fact that GA only offered partial data (sampling based).
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.
July 28 2014 - HubSpot is a crucial too for our marketing department, and will soon even become a tool for our sales department. It has been well implemented in our daily working habits, so I can't see how we could manage without it!
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.
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.
