Likelihood to Recommend

Adobe Campaign

The campaign functions that you're looking for are all present but a decent number of them are difficult to find and actually much less practical than you'd imagine. The software is frequently being improved upon and updated on Adobe's end. They are actively updating and adding new features but compared to competitors on the marketplace they're not offering anything significantly better. The reporting features are generally lacking and not enjoyable to use. I would recommend fixing that for future iterations of the platform.

We used the Manticore Marketing Automation solution for almost/just over 2 years, and initially, it was a great solution. Everything just seemed to work. When Manticore Technology, Inc. and Sales Engine International merged on May 31st of 2012, the overall product quality began to decline.As browsers and other programs (like our CRM environment) went through updates and new releases, Manticore just didn't keep up. Parts of the program became incompatible with certain browsers, forcing us to change where and how we logged into the back-end of the system. It was a silly workaround, but not the end of the world. When we learned that other client-facing portions didn't work with certain browsers, we brought it to their attention, and were told that we needed to find some way to work with it, and that the changes to the system were not possible. We ended up having to change our 200+ landing pages/forms, and could no longer have the State/Province field as a required field for registrations. That is just one example of our experience, and there have been others that are just as troublesome.

Cons

Adobe Campaign

  • Sometimes there are an overwhelming amount of complex tasks to go through before starting a delivery campaign.
  • Lots of opportunity for failure within email deliveries. Important campaign information is often hidden behind multiple tabs you need to sort through.
  • Very poor in-application email editor.
  • In-application reporting is not intuitive.

Sales Engine International

  • Some bugs when using on a Mac.
  • Turnover of support team - since acquisition by SalesEngine the Manticore team has changed quite a bit.
  • Daily reports aren't as robust as some solutions - hard to get good company info on anonymous visits.

Likelihood to Renew

Once you go for Neolane you are a bit stuck with it, so we will most likely stay with Neolane. Cost of investment and training are the main factors at work here. We havesimply have invested too much in the product to stop using it after 2 years.That said, my score of 8 does not imply that the product is worthy of getting an 8 but reflects our willingness to renew.Given that upgrading to a new version will cost again a substantial sum, we most likely will keep using the current version we are on which is 6X.

I've been incredibly pleased with Manticore/SEI and have selected them at several companies now. It's worked in a variety of different business environments, both big and small, and everyone on both the sales and marketing side have been extremely pleased with the results

Some of the actions require you to be in a specific section before actions are available to you, like adding a list. You first have to navigate to that section for options to be available to you

I would say that generally the knowledge of the support team we work with is good, great even.I can't say that they seem to be very interested or involved in trying to make the product work best for us.They do what needs to be done, and they do it well - but not really going the extra mile.

It was the easiest integration and implementation that I've ever experienced. I've implemented other CRM integrated services before that provided the same services as Manticore that were extremely technical and expensive to integrate with Salesforce.com or Microsoft CRM Dynamics, or just plain couldn't integrate

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Campaign

We evaluated Salesforce Marketing Cloud, IBM Marketing Cloud, Pitney Bowes Engage One before settling on Adobe Campaign through a vendor selection process. Adobe Campaign was most appealing because of their on-premise/hybrid offering. This allowed us to keep data on site. Our privacy and security teams have reservations on storing personally identifiable information in the cloud. This is particular important for sensitive information that could be used for segmentation.

We migrated to Marketo approximately 6 months
ago, and were extremely happy with the change. Besides the higher sticker
price and the "everything's a sales pitch" communications from
Marketo, we can't find any fault.

Sales
Engine International - Manticore (commonly referred to as Manti-beast
internally) created many problems for us. And while they did integrate
with our Microsoft Dynamics environment, the software quickly ate through our
purchased storage and forced us to constantly purchase more. That alone
cost us many hundreds of dollars in Microsoft Dynamics CRM storage every year.
And, when confronted about it, Manticore support flat out lied about how
much storage their activities were taking up in our system. So, while it
integrates, it's a very poor integration.

Return on Investment

Adobe Campaign

  • Our sales and clicks have drastically risen.
  • We can specifically target what drives our audience, which helps us build and solidify our strategies in the planning phase.
  • Since everything is updated via Adobe Cloud, it can get pricey when working with large amounts of data - especially for smaller businesses.

Sales Engine International

  • Errors in forms led to a decrease in registrations - found workaround to correct it, but was never informed of certain incompatibilities
  • Reports have been inaccurate and very inflexible, and have not allowed for reliable forecasting/planning
