Allbound, Inc.
Allbound is a sleek solution that neatly organizes data. Clearly presents useful instructional content. The slowness of the CRM connection is a problem. When it comes to reaching out to our worldwide network of channel partners, we turn on Allbound to streamline our communication and sales enablement efforts. Our reseller partners may use this central hub to register new deals, stay up to speed on product changes, and have access to all relevant product information.

Salesforce Partner Management is a great tool for scenarios where a partner portal needs to be created in a quick and cost-efficient manner by teams that do not necessarily have a broad technical knowledge and when the time to market is key. In the situations where the use case is more advanced and cannot be covered by the out-of-the-box functionalities of SPM, then the tool is less effective.

Cons
Allbound, Inc.
  • The fact that you can't make payouts to partners within the platform itself is super frustrating and that would be a huge improvement.
  • The ability to track clicks, page views, etc is not available like on other partner platforms like Tune, Impact, and Cake. It would be awesome to see that tracking data for the content being shared.
  • Having more integrations with platforms like Zuora which we use for payments would be great.

  • One thing is, you have to put the time you took on the case if you edited it. I would like to change the name or a note and not have to go back and put how long it took.
  • Reports can sometimes be hard to create.

Allbound is so easy to use as an administrator and provides human support and a resource for its customers to learn about the features and tools available. Our partners consistently provide feedback to us about how much they absolutely love our partner portal, which Allbound provides the structure and functionality to allow us to over amazing things to thousands of partner globally. Almost every person who provides feedback says some iteration of "this is the best partner portal i've ever used."

We are definitely going to renew as we created and developed a very functional and complete solution that we won't want to lose. and the reason we achieved that is by continuously evolving and enhancing. That would not be possible without the qualified technical support we have at our disposal internally.

Usability
Allbound, Inc.
It is by far the easiest system to administrator that I have either had experience doing or demoed from other vendors. No coding skills needed. Simple interfaces for everything. And the Allbound University and live support are great!

Salesforce Partner Management is complete and has great usability. Just as a Salesforce full CRM does. However, when you have to deploy the initial implementation and/or create the infrastructure for your Salesforce Partner Management it might require, as expected, a very good support and development team and resources

Regular meetings, lots of UAT, quick responses, and adherence to our timeline made implementation a breeze -- even though we had some really complex processes we needed to support.

Alternatives Considered
Allbound, Inc.
They are different in the sense that Allbound allows you to loop in different parners to a degree that HubSpot doesn't outside smaller extensions and portals. More visbility into interactions with HubSpot, but it's truly built for marketing vs a sales forward/partnership management tool.Extensions from Allbound into Google could be helpful

Tune provides great on-boarding experience for new users, but the functionality of the product itself is limited. For example if you multiple partners worldwide who sell your product, Salesforce CRM integration is a must to achieve business goals. Salesforce ecosystems helps to avoid having multiple tools and licenses. One big differentiator is that Salesforce Partner Managements allows for personalization that is user-friendly, while with Tune user is expected to do some coding
