Likelihood to Recommend

Allocadia

Although the Analytics part is already available it could be improved. So for now Allocadia is very recommended if you are looking for a data maintenance software but less appropriate as a analysis tool. Ask yourself what is it you are looking for (analysis or controlling) and for which purposes (management level or specialists). The costs are very resonable and an absolute Plus!

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

Allocadia

  • Individuality. Allocadia was kind of a start-up when we first got in touch. They adjusted a lot of their functionalities, layout and usability in order to fit our needs.
  • Easy to use. It is very easy to keep control over all the stats while the users take advantage of a nice and easy user interface.
  • Great support. Although we have a time shift of about 10-11 hours (Europe to Canada) we are experiencing a fast, proper and friendly support in any cases.

Hive9

  • 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

Allocadia

  • An integrated calculator as well as an currency exchange calculator. It would make working with the stats a lot easier if some additional tools would be available.
  • Improve the general performance. A topic which is valid at any time. No matter how good your performance is lately, there's always room for improvement.
  • Some smaller adjustments regarding the usability would be great to ease the budget entry process - but as far s I am informed, some changes and updates are coming up with the HTML5 solution

Hive9

  • 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.

I am hesitant to comment on renewal in detail because we haven't been using the system for very long. But I am encouraged by the speed and ease of implementation, and look forward to getting to know the system better.

Alternatives Considered

Allocadia

Allocadia showed the biggest advantages in regards to the individuality and personalization of the tool as well as in regards to the costs. It provided the services and features we were looking for. While other software had a big load of additional features we were not looking for, Allocadia was the perfect match.
