Accelo

Accelo is a system that can do it all. It's extremely sophisticated. Depending on the sophistication of your organization, or specifically the abilities of the people you put in charge of the implementation, it can almost be too sophisticated. It all just depends on your situation. The more you use it, the more data you give it, the more you'll be able to see and do. It's incredibly powerful. But it's definitely not a tool that would be appropriate for smaller boutique type organizations that have only basic needs.

Gainsight Customer Cloud

If your business has a large customer base and you are struggling to understand the specific needs of each customer, you could greatly benefit from using Gainsight. It gives the business leader the leverage to understand the how and why, and provides the data to ensure customers are better off

Pros

Accelo

  • Timing Client Work: You are able to better manage your time on your clients.
  • Housing Client Info in one Area: You can view all you need for any given client in one area.

Gainsight Customer Cloud

  • Charting/graphing/reporting - lots of options to create visualizations.
  • Report Builder function - again, many options to choose from, relatively easy to use and quick to see output.
  • Logical and pleasing UI - easy to follow and find what you're looking for.

Cons

Accelo

  • Cumbersome processes - feels like tasks take longer than they should.
  • We gave up on the Projects module, it was rather unintuitive. Switched to JIRA, which integrates with the Support module of Accelo.
  • Each email address requires a new contact. If one person uses multiple email addresses to contact you, that info will have to be spread across multiple contacts.
Ryan Freeman | TrustRadius Reviewer

Gainsight Customer Cloud

  • Reporting is good, but remains confusing and requires an admin to really navigate instead of end users being able to use
  • Sharing: getting other teams access to the C360 page has been difficult without a full license.
  • Journey Orchestrator can handle most emails, but the HTML functionality could be easier to navigate.

Gainsight offers a level of support that I've not experience before. They will work with you to come up with a solution to a problem - or help match you with another client that has a similar setup as you to get their feedback. Also the functionality that we have built within the software works for us. It's 'easy' to use (once you get the hang of it) and our users rather enjoy working in the software.

Gainsight is extremely powerful. That power creates complexity. At the point we are at now, we are comfortable with the tool and we get it. However, it is not easy to grasp at the get go. Even some new features take us time to understand. But as I said, the function and power of the tool are immense and that good outweighs anything that is too complex.

There are some times when it can take almost a minute to load some of our reports or the rules engine. Within a rule it can also take time to load the actions as they each load one at a time when scrolling. The ability to scroll without waiting would be ideal

From the beginning the Accelo team has been very invested in ensuring our success and overall happiness with the platform. The initial implementation specialists and trainers did a fairly good job of learning our company and needs, and tried to tailor the trainings accordingly. However, once we made the formal switch to the platform, meaning we no longer were using our legacy systems, we found that we had a lot of questions....and a lot of ideas and recommendations. The support team is extremely responsive and seemingly happy to receive our continual feedback. And if we encounter an issue that seems to be a system issue, they work diligently to fix it (we've actually had an engineer join a call with us to learn of the issue - and subsequently fix it)

Most of the time the team are very good at being responsive, with the odd occasion I've had to send follow up emails for an update. The team are very good at explaining solutions to an issue and make great use of gifs and images to assist.

The online videos are very good for basic tasks in the platform, but it isn't very descriptive or helpful trying to make your own specific variables fit the simple example that is typically used. Typically, I'll watch a video, try on my own and still have to get help from support or Customer Success team

Do your homework before starting - the vast majority of success related to implementation depends on your knowledge of your business, your customers, and your data. The platform can do whatever you want it to do...so be thoughtful about what you are building.Start simple. Validate and adjust for continuous improvement.Think about your data needs early on. Define and document your processes for easy onboarding of new team members.

Alternatives Considered

Accelo

We used Workfront prior to using Accelo, mainly for project management and retainer management. There is no comparison between the two as Accelo blows it away.
Chris Osterhout | TrustRadius Reviewer

Gainsight Customer Cloud

Our Salesforce admin is constantly pushing us to adopt more of the features of Salesforce. However, we find that Gainsight is a stronger tool for customization and enhanced interdepartmental communications. Timeline makes it easy to understand where we stand in a customer lifecycle, which is far superior to reviewing an activity history related list in Salesforce.

Return on Investment

Accelo

  • 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.

Gainsight Customer Cloud

  • We have increased our NPS overall score thanks to the visibility we have been able to capture by sending the NPS Survey.
  • By using the Customer 360 we have increased the relationship between our Customer Success Executives and our customers.
  • Our employees with visibility of Gainsight have improved their performance thanks to Gainsight's automation in reports and dashboards.
