I would (and do) recommend 3BL Professional to any company/org trying to expand the reach of it's CR programs. Often communications is how we justify the budget for our program work (communications help us increase brand reputation, reach potential employees, reach investors and ESG analysts). The 3BL platform is an incredible way to get your impacts and initiatives out to the world so that people know about the incredible programs you're running. Would recommend for any CR/ESG/Sustainability team.

SAP
It is basically the easiest choice for people who are already running SAP ECC or S4 as their ERP as that means they can get all of the data sources automatically without mapping efforts. That compensates for some of the shortcomings mentioned earlier, and to be fair, tools from other vendors (e.g., Microsoft) have the same problem anyway.

Cons
3BL
  • Could use detailed description of difference between page views and impressions and how these are differently experienced by people who could see the content on various channels
  • It would help to know a ballpark figure of impressions served up by Reuters, AP and other services that pickup 3BL content
  • It would help if quarterly reporting could track with our fiscal year quarters instead of calendar year quarters

Same lack of industry-specific content on both, but SAP has the main advantage of direct connection to the ERP data so it saves significant efforts in comparison. Regarding dashboards look and feel and so on, it is more a matter of personal preference between PowerBi and SAP, we personally prefer SAP as it is a bit richer in ability to bring in more data and filter on it.
