Allocadia

Allocadia is well suited to help teams within a larger department track and manage their budgets, while giving finance and other managers visibility into how budgets are being spent and allocated. It is also easy to customize reports and export them to present to decision makers if needed. At this point in time other business units in my company have not adopted Allocadia

Hive9

If you are a large marketing organization (Enterprise level), this tool is perfect. As long as you can get buy in for the proper integrations, it will make tracking program success much easier, allowing for real-time reporting on the fly. If you are a smaller, more scrappy marketing organization, it can feel cumbersome at first, but it may also help your teams adopt best-practice project structures. To truly gain the benefits of the system, you must be running targeted lead generation campaigns with tangible goals and outcomes. Otherwise, you likely won't get the value from the tool

Pros

  • Consolidates budget information (planned, allocated, spent, etc.) in a single location.
  • Rolls up and enhances the stored data with custom metrics (calculations) and other conversion processes.
  • Displays data in custom dashboards that really bring the numbers to life.

  • The integration with SalesForce is great and allows for data to be more easily pulled and viewed through the Hive9 system. It seamlessly combines spend data with program data so identifying and analyzing better-performing programs is easy.
  • The reporting options in Hive9 are very robust and valuable for both marketing teams as well as finance and executive sponsors/stakeholders. The reporting was built from Sirius Decision's demand generation waterfall so it incorporates best practices for lead tracking and reporting.
  • The fact that Hive9 integrates with sales and marketing automation systems as well as prominent accounting systems makes it an extremely valuable tool to bring in key data points to tell the story of marketing efficacy.

Cons

  • Integration with key data systems such as Google AdWords or Bing Ads.
  • More direct and/or user-friendly data import and export processes (pertaining to raw data and flat files).

  • The hierarchy of programs/initiatives can be pretty clunky and cumbersome. While it probably works great for larger size, enterprise organizations, it does not always jive with mid size to smaller companies - it can feel very constrained.
  • There is currently no way to create a "flat" organizational structure of users. This can be very limiting for smaller-sized marketing organizations. Although I believe they are addressing this very soon.

We will never go back to using spreadsheets. We have already invested considerable time in getting our process to where it is.

Alternatives Considered

Previously we were using Excel spreadsheets. This was a nightmare, as the entire spreadsheet would be ruined if one formula was off.
