It is much better to prospect brands and find appropriate contacts at a parent account, and not such a strong suit for agencies.

Apttus

It is enterprise level tool in the market. If your company is large and deals are complex then Apttus is the right tool to use. If the products that you sell are not too complex you can probably use salesforce's native functionality. AWS approvals allow you to configure really complex approvals with different levels and multiple price rules. If your organization has really simple approval processes then you are better off using salesforce's native approvals.

  • Provides media spend for parent company and brand.

Apttus

  • Tracks contract status. It's basically a time stamping function and hard to mess up.

Cons

  • Not having to log in as often.

Apttus

  • Mobile app, if there's any.
  • Better response in high-peak circumstances (like quarter end). This could have been a salesforce.com issue, but honestly, everything else worked just fine.
  • Reporting. It would be great to be able to see how many of my reps requested discounts and compare that to the standard quotes they can build.

Tier1/tier 2 support can only handle native functionality. Customizations have to be escalated to developers which aren’t included in the support program.

I go ahead and copy the people I directly worked with on implementation for assistance. I would rate them an 8 for support assistance.

We attended 5 hours worth of webinars early on.

We had to understand how objects worked to figure out how to structure our data.

I would have liked more in-depth training but it would have been an additional cost

Be iterative. Take the opportunity to build a catalog based on how Apttus works well. Learn the tool yourself or use an SI. Take the time to build a configuration / pricing migration tool with X-Author for Excel or roll your own. Stick with OOTB Apttus as any customization will cost you every time a new version is released

Alternatives Considered

AdDataExpress

Winmo allows more dynamic and functional searches, and puts agency and brand contacts in one place. It also allows exports based on spend and in general, is much more dynamic of a software.

Apttus

Apttus is a much more comprehensive solution that any other partner we reviewed.
