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.

I think TopOPPS is better suited for the larger sales team with shorter sales cycles. We have very long sales cycles and we have not truly seen it impact how we do business in terms of sales. I also think it's better suited for teams that have a true sales manager monitoring the reps and opps.

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."

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.

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

The tool was way [more]cost effective than something like Wave which is crazy expensive and not worth it. The other tools we evaluated were: 1. Salesforce's Wave Analytics - Too Expensive 2. Tableau - Not very user-friendly at the time and too expensive 3. Excel solutions - the data would become stale as soon as the Excel was exported.

  • Honestly, we cannot put a value on it. It's hard to know if it helped or hurt, but don't think it has helped.
