6sense

6sense is well suited in areas such as creating a campaign for our site. For example, "grill season". It makes it easy to create a campaign to advertise all our grills, best selling [grills] and create certain price updates/categories. It is not as useful on the product campaign, coupon and sales level, but still more useful than platforms we have used in the past.

PitchBook

PitchBook is well suited for any group/firm interested in private equity, particularly those looking to market private placements as well as track overall levels of activity in the private capital markets. It appears they've since added further functionality around private-equity specific interests such as limited partners, fund performance, etc. PitchBook is less useful for tracking standard market data such as pricing publicly-traded securities or tracking M&A transactions, as more robust alternatives exist.

  • Voluminous and detailed datasets: PitchBook was a consistently reliable source of information on the most recent private capital markets transactions, as well as the key investors participating in said transactions.
  • Ease of use: PitchBook allowed for easy exporting of screens in Excel for use in our own analyses with minimal friction, and a robust interface ensured a sufficient level of granularity for conducting research.
  • Customer support: PitchBook customer support was extremely helpful and was frequently able to provide answers to any questions that arose.

Cons

  • Some of the terms used are a learning process for our team, but the site is easy to navigate.
  • Although the site is easier to navigate, it has a lot of facets that take time to learn where elements are saved.

  • Missing functionality: At times the ability to drill down further by transaction type and/or security was not available, and necessitated further data manipulation in Excel to arrive at the desired result.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle is not user-friendly. It is outdated and confusing, also makes it hard to enter in and out of certain tabs/areas within the platform. 6sense is more in-depth and has more functional abilities compared to Salesforce.

PitchBook is more focused on private company statistics such as capital raised, industry focus, investor base analysis, and overall market activity. PitchBook has more robust capabilities in terms of allowing users to manipulate private markets data, but does not have the same level of public markets reporting functionality, and its Excel plugin is a bit limited in scope. Ultimately we chose PitchBook because it is a highly complementary data source to more established public data providers.

Return on Investment

  • It is easier to monitor our ROI on certain campaigns, departments, subclasses, within our sites.
  • We have less issues with launching campaigns correctly and the site crashing on us while processing and developing these campaigns.
