If you are looking for a basic CRM this tool would work. It has lots of room to grow.

Innotas is able to handle a mid-size organization extremely well, but due to its poor searching features, I can see potential problems for extremely large organizations. So a key question to ask would be what is the size of your organization? A lot of tasks are also non-automated (such as dashboard refreshing and filter time updates), so the organization should also be willing to have a decent number of employees who will maintain the system.

Also, depending on the budget or expertise of the organization's employees, an organization may want to consider a newer or more advanced database software. Despite Innotas doing what is required of it reasonably effectively, it is likely better options exist.

Cons

  • Difficult to upload targets
  • Not easy to modify a target
  • When uploading targets you can not attach them to tags until after they are uploaded.
  • When listing opportunities in the system, you are limited with what stage the opportunity is in and the star system is not very helpful. The status' are very vague and not always accurate.

  • Needs better integration of project financials with 3rd party systems

As I previously stated I am no longer in the role where I acted as Innotas admin, but because our license has been twice renewed since initial deployment and since I am in the business and have used the IT request process I created and have not heard anything to the contrary

We use JIRA in addition to Innotas. Innotas simply tracks the time spent whereas JIRA tracks the process and flow of the work. As I stated in a previous part of this review, I wish we could integrate the two where our time added to tasks in JIRA could roll up to the project in Innotas without having people duplicate their time entry.

Return on Investment

  • Helps with tracking prospects through the sales/marketing funnel
  • Has led some employees to stop using the tool and going back to spreadsheets. When trying to attach targets to tags you need to do so individually and if you upload a large list you need to do this manually, one by one, and requires a lot of time. So people have gone back to spreadsheets where they could simply just cut and paste new people in.

  • Their support level allowed me to achieve a tight deadline on a project that had C level visibility. Note the critical nature of this project was not mentioned to innotas, as far as they knew it was just another day like any other but they went above and beyond to assist.
