AdGear
AdGear Advertiser is good for finding large groups of customers and/or leads to encourage use of software or apps and to trigger usage. Adgear Advertiser may be less suited for targeting within subsets of potential customers, clients, or leads. More attention is needed to improve this aspect or section.

It is well suited for small, targeted advertisements. I see this happening on a large scale and it is difficult to keep departments/groups/units separate from the individual, so incorrect, inappropriate, or just wrong recommendations are made all the time. The scale of your project I think determines whether this will be useful. A team under ~30/40 people, should work great. Larger than that and wires will be crossed, quality will plummet, and expectations will not be met.

  • IoT - connected to all smart devices
  • user interface is only for advanced users
  • can give incorrect and inappropriate links for setting
  • difficult to control broad settings
  • terrible customer support (what do you expect from LinkedIN)

Usability
AdGear
The user interface of AdGear Advertiser does need some work. It is initially easy to set up and use but can get a bit bogged down. Maybe more initial training opportunities might help, as support is not the problem. Again, this will always be situational to a company's specific needs and goals.

Support Rating
AdGear
AdGear Advertiser provides overall good support in the times it has been needed. We would like a better user interface and maybe better response times, but that is always situational and specific to certain company needs. Response is very thorough when received, so there is little to no need to go back through the process.

AdGear was the easiest tech to start on and it was my manager's choice. He enjoyed it though would get frustrated by the UI. I found it easy to use and set up; through lacking meaningful more insights into leads and lead generation to acquire important information when converting to users on the platform.

In hindsight, I wish we had picked any of the other options. Drawbridge is a letdown in cost, user ability, quality of service, and support. Though I have limited experience with the other software mentioned, they surely would not have been such a letdown - in so many areas, as Drawbridge is.
