Act! CRM

Swiftpage [ACT!] is
robust in nature and a manageable solution available for use as a powerful
marketing tool. It is compiled of a lot of exceptional services with the best
contact and customer management tool. Support needs a lot of attention, as it
needs to be changed and they must have to be more responsive and helpful to
become the best in the market.

Oracle CRM

Oracle CRM is reliable and it fits well in a scenario where a company aims to grow their customer base and improve their relationship with their clients and ensure that all customer services are offered in an efficient manner. Oracle CRM is accessible from any device and this ensures easy usage of the platform and assure all staff to execute their various business processes.

Pros

Act! CRM

  • Lots of fields for adapting the software to your own requirements.
  • Excellent tracking of activities/details in sales pipeline process.
  • Excellent robust reporting to provide a very clear picture of prospecting activities.
  • Tightly integrated with Sage Quantum accounting software to avoid double entry of prospect details into Customer/Sales module.
Laurence Sarner | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle CRM

  • Several of our members were not familiar with various IT functions within CRM prior to working with it and so they were able to develop a working knowledge of IT pretty quickly afterwards.
  • It has a familiar feel to it as it allows users to work the data into a spreadsheet type layout with pivot tables and graphs and so it is quick to adopt.
  • Customization is great with a working knowledge of HTML, which isn't too hard to learn. You can really adapt CRM to any needs stylistically or content wise.
Joseph R. Sweeney | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Act! CRM

  • Social Integration: The tool has a basic feed for LinkedIn information to feed into the system. The infusion of more Social Selling "signals" and "feeds" would be very helpful to instill more social selling into the framework.
  • Account vs. Contact: If you are a company which works to B to B rather than B to C there is a still a bit of cumbersome way to handle "joining" accounts and contacts through links. It is better with 16.1 release but still it's a "contact" centric solution which is great for some business relationships like realtors, insurance, & financial services etc.

Oracle CRM

  • Oracle CRM is incredibly complex making it fairly difficult to learn from scratch
  • The original implementation of Oracle CRM was a lengthy and involved process
  • We have had outages where we cannot connect to Oracle CRM which leaves us at a loss. I'm not sure what the solution to this is, but less outages would be ideal.

There are a lot of good SaaS options on the market but SwiftPage ACT still has a place in the mix today. It depends on your needs, goals, processes, and people

ACT follows the basic rules you would expect for this type of software, but actually doing anything sophisticated with it is near impossible without assistance or training. Unless you use it regularly it is difficult to use. I wouldn't recommend it unless you have internal IT support and it will be used regularly.

I give this rating because I personally don't have any difficulty using the system. I didn't have any difficulty learning the system either. I know that in my position I am taking complaints from users who are having issues with the oracle sites but most of the time it is user error or a technical issue and they need to be using it in the best way possible. I do think it is one of the easiest sites for applying online and hiring candidates. In my 10 years of dealing with so many other recruiting and career sites like Kenexa Brassring, Erecruit or Peoplesoft, I don't recommend any of those at all. Oracle CRM/Taleo is by far the easiest site for applicants to apply, the easiest site for recruiters to hire and the easiest site to manage your hires.

I give this rating because I don't have any complaints in the area of performance. In my opinion the product's performance is right on the mark. In comparison to other systems I have used for the same purpose - recruiting, hiring and managing hires, I have found Oracle's performance to be the best. Oracle system flows better than any other recruiting system out there.

Following a few interactions with support staff over the phone where we failed to correct the issues we were calling about, we ended up going back to the consultant who we purchased the software through and continued to use her for support rather than call Swiftpage ACT! directly. Our consultant was much more helpful in finding and correcting our issues.

Generally, if you log an SR, it will get resolved rather quickly. If they need to contact you for more information, the resolution process gets drug out because you have to usually go back and forth with several messages. Some customization involving web-links, java script, and HTML, Oracle does not officially support, so they will not assist you if your links stop working.

It was a great training tool and provided all of the necessary information we needed to implement the sites for our clients. We were provided with a great deal of resources in regards to Oracle CRM. We didn't have any issues with the training at all. The only thing I would say would that there could be more FAQ's for users to read through

If you have never used a CRM program is is hard to know exactly what you need. We had lots of changes during implementation and even more afterward once the users started working in it everyday. Also the partner we used didn't inform us about Allotments and not being able to Batch delete custom objects (you can now in recent releases). There were so many unknowns, that if I had it to do over, I would educate myself more and ask more questions of the partner that we used for implementation.

Alternatives Considered

Act! CRM

Although other CRM's like HubSpot offer a free solution, I found that it didn't give much and the add-ons were very expensive. Many other companies have interfaces that are clunky or hard to understand. Also I found that many just offer way too many features that we would never use that just made it more difficult to use what we needed. The customized options are just way to expensive for the simplistic offering we need. Swiftpage ACT! just provides a solution that works for us.

I have used PowerHelp in the past for field service and contact center applications with a startup company and it had proved extremely flexible for process accommodation. I was not part of the selection team who evaluated and chose the CRM for Diebold, though I am fairly certain that it was an Enterprise software decision more than a module-driven choice.

In my opinion I rate this high because we have had no issues in this area and so that is why I give it such a high rating. There is no issue with the product's overall scalability. In my opinion this has been a positive from my team and client's view.

Return on Investment

Act! CRM

  • ACT! pays for itself by keeping me organized.
  • I don't have to remember to contact a prospect, ACT! remembers for me, letting me schedule follow ups for a date and time that works for me. That means greater sales success.
  • ACT! enables me to search for information as well as contacts.
Mary Westheimer | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle CRM

  • Until a certain point in time, the solution was responsive and provided support for productive work. With more integrations and a growing product base, the application started to be barely usable due to delays (excessive response times) and prolonged the product configuration tasks.
