Nudge.ai is well suited for individual contributors without enough time or resource to do proper research on clients/prospects. It may work as well for larger teams, but I don't have experience using Nudge.ai in that environment. Nudge.ai is easy to use, so the onboarding and ramp-up time is quick.

PitchBook
If you are a company or an individual that needs reliable information about SMEs or startups, this is the best platform for you to get this information in a very efficient way. If you are just doing a basic due diligence to see active VC funds, figuring out valuations or companies in one industry, or just getting general information about an industry, it is probably better to get it from somewhere else on the internet. The reasoning behind it is that PitchBook is very expensive as opposed to other options out there.

Pros
Affinity
  • Almost all of Adobe Photoshop's features for a fraction of the cost. It was an easy decision for our organization.
  • The interface and most of the features are an almost mirror image of Photoshop. Flat fees instead of high yearly fees are much more desirable for our small team.
  • They have a great support forum for the little one-offs that aren't quite like the Photoshop app, or don't have the same exact name as Photoshop. The forum really helps when this happens. The YouTube support from the company and other users has been very helpful as well.
  • I use Sketch as my primary vector design tool. Affinity allows me to take a .ai, .eps, or other proprietary format and convert it to .svg for use/manipulation with Sketch and back. I can't say enough for this feature. It has helped me stay less pigeon-holed into Adobe products, which have lacked innovation for a long time in my opinion.

Cons
Affinity
  • Sometimes interacting with a large data set is a little buggy, i.e. choppy when navigating the page.
  • It would be nice to have a feature, where the status of an opportunity changes automatically when a certain thing happens. For instance, when I send a cold email, the status of a prospect would change from "identified" to "contacted."

  • Can be glitchy when loading
  • Contact information can be inaccurate

We will definitely be renewing. The value for the price we are paying is solid, and we are interested in growing our use to see if we can expand on the value we are getting from Nudge.ai.

For a regular user of Photoshop, Affinity is a very easy transition. It has all the same features and once you adapt to it, and it provides a quick return on investment.

Support Rating
Affinity
I have not had much opportunity to go directly to support, but the training modules that are employed by the company are fantastic. I also find that if I need to understand something, there is always another user ready and willing to share their secrets. As this tool becomes more accepted local communities will also start to organize

PitchBook
The overall support for PitchBook is about average. It is not excellent for two primary reasons. First, PitchBook can run slow from time to time, and I cannot copy and paste from the Chrome extension. I have found neither of those issues to be a function of the computer I am using. However, the PitchBook support team has proved helpful on several occasions.

We actually use both. CBInsights we use more regularly for market capture, and PitchBook when we are actively seeking acquisitions.

Return on Investment
Affinity
  • Helps me best manage my relationships, which is a high ROI.
  • Saves me time on data entry which is important to me.

PitchBook
  • Saved us from investing with an incorrect valuation (multiple times)
  • You need to pay per license per user. It is definitely expensive for a small accelerator.
