    6sense is the only intent tool that I have engaged with that goes beyond just telling you when folks are surging on keywords. The AI looks at your wins and helps to bubble up accounts that are a strong or moderate fit based on this. It learns from your data and helps sellers focus on the areas they are most likely to win.

    Pros

    6sense

    • 6sense does a fantastic job identifying keywords that potential customers are searching for.
    • 6sense is beneficial in the sense that it shows the various buying stages their potential customers are in.
    • 6sense makes it easy to upload potential client lists that make it easier for me and my team to identify key accounts.
    • 6sense makes it easy to download reports that can be shared with partners.

    • When in client profile, it is very intuitive, allowing you to easily transcribe notes in the clients profile.
    • Sage allows 3rd party plugins, so if you utilize a particular phone services or would like to import something as simple as google drive, its compatible.

    Cons

    6sense

    • Sometimes the data doesn't align across the platform. I've seen inconsistencies across the data being pushed into SFDC fields, the Sales Insight SFDC application, Google Analytics, and the 6sense platform itself.
    • The worst part of the platform is that 6sense views the same account in different countries as different accounts. We market to global enterprises and no one is going to set up their Salesforce instance with a separate account for every country. It is very limiting when it comes to getting a holistic view of account activity.
    • The company is relatively immature when it comes to business processes and support. I've had tickets outstanding for months and often don't get satisfactory answers about data inconsistencies.

    • Reliance on Apache Tomcat causes a lot of headaches. There are common issues trying to start up the server, resulting from Apache Tomcat misconfigurations, or Java. Some forum posts on Sage City address common issues, but digging into server logs seems to be an often occurrence.
    • Support is somewhat lacking, less user install base means error messages are sometimes hard to find quick answers for. Most of the knowledge found on the internet is in the Sage City forum.
    • Integration with Microsoft 365 causes you to have to turn off some security features. This will result in your 365 tenants running lower security standards than recommended, it may put you at risk for targeted attacks.

      6sense is good but I would like to try Demandbase or others just to see what is out there. Sometimes the contacts or accounts given aren't even in our patch. This doesn't happen much so its no big deal at the end of the day but still any time wasted searching through salesforce or with zoom info is time we could have spent doing activities to actually generate revenue

      There are really no other words to say, it is a very easy to use application that is more straightforward and has provided better results with the bulk of features that appeal to a very broad amount of users. There may be other CRM platforms out there that are more prevalent, but I have found them to be much more clunky and less intuitive than Sage CRM.

      6sense

      The platform is pretty straightforward as far as creating new segments and what's available to do so. The launch of digital advertising has greatly improved in recent months which has been great for our digital team. Adding or removing users and updating integration points is pretty easy as well. Reporting has also been recently updated which makes reporting on usage and ROI much easier too.

      Sage works very quickly based on the network you are using it on. It is internet based so if your network is slow, it will perform slowly. Reports seem to run reasonably fast, if there is too much information it is trying to populate that could slow it down a little. When Sage CRM is integrated with a Sage ERP product it doesn't tend to slow down either system at all

      Their Customer Success model is delivered as advertised. We're very satisfied with the availability of support. They care as much about our success as we do. We also had an issue where we believed there was an issue in a piece of functionality. They continued to dig until they found the problem and immediately put the fix into a patch.

      Alternatives Considered

      6sense

      The predictive analytics and account stages is great. Wish they had Facebook targeting like Metadata.io does where you can upload a list of business contacts and it matches it to their personal email and you can target on Facebook. Other than that, 6sense is great for prioritizing outreach and making sure you're going after accounts that are in-market.

      Whilst SAGE CRM was selected around 10 years ago and we became a partner, the main contenders would have been at the time Sales Logix and MS CRM 4.0. However, we had extensive experience of the mid-market CRM's and decided on SAGE CRM since it had a clean, easy to understand interface and importantly offered both workflow automation and Self Service capability, all of which across both the Case and Sales and Marketing functionality was seamless and saved time. As it was pure browser based, access was from anywhere we wanted. In my view, SAGE CRM still stacks up well against all the other mid-market CRM systems and offers good value for money, but more importantly, it is an easy to operate and customisable solution which user like. Again, we can teach administration users very quickly to support and customise themselves since the admin. function are clear as well.

      • It is very affordable in pricing, compared to competitors
      • Lead management and convertion into prospects is also a very easy process
      • Lead capture from web pages should be available, and better ways to capture leads from tradeshows by uploading directly from scanned business cards
