Alooma
Very appropriate for managing an ELT stack -- Alooma handles the 'E' and 'L' pieces very well. Due to the way transformation is setup, it is more on the lightweight side of things and thus works for this kind of stack. For more traditional ETL stacks, Alooma would probably not be the right fit.

HubSpot
In cases of brands that have been in the market for a long time but do not see any impact from new clients or consumers, HubSpot is ideal since it allows to keep the brand fresh in the mind of the audience. HubSpot additionally provides insight into what we're doing and allowed us to align the sales team with company goals. It also ensures that you receive updates from your computer. We can handle all programming requests that come into our team. One thing that HubSpot can improve on is not having a good centralized dashboard that allows for a full view of ALL data coming in. You can go to each piece, but not having them all attached to the board adds a bit of a challenge. It's not very complex to handle, but it would be easier to use if it had that feature.

Pros
Alooma
  • Transformation of data before entering the data warehouse -- allows for a consistent/understandable schema for analytics teams.
  • Adding of additional data sources: Alooma has a large library of pre-built, common 3rd party vendors for which data is often needed to be ETL-ed.

  • Easy to figure out. Once you login, it's incredibly easy to figure out what to do, thanks to their simple UIX.
  • Easy integrations with many partners. PieSync offers easy integrations with many partners. Integrating is as easy as clicking, filling in your login information and clicking again!
  • Allowing multiple integrations. I'm glad PieSync allows multiple integrations so you aren't limited with how you integrate your different systems with contact information. Very helpful!

Cons
Alooma
  • More tools on managing the data warehouse itself. Although great on the ingest and transformation of data, more help provided by the tool on managing the outputs would be welcome.
  • Increase possibilities in the transformation step, rather than single event transformations.

  • The biggest issue we have had with PieSync is the lack of detail within syncing. Sometimes when there is an issue with a Sync it is hard to determine what went wrong. Even though most of the time it's user error, it's hard to diagnose issues with the current PieSync set-up.
  • The pricing of PieSync is a little odd and I think should be based on something other than number of contacts you're syncing.

I used it with a couple of systems that I was not expecting to be smooth sailing and it just worked without any issues.

Every time that I've had a question, PieSync has been very responsive. It is a reliable company with a great team that is devoted to helping their customers. I've been their customer for 2 years and I've never looked back. Support is an important reason why PieSync is my go-to app for this job.

Alternatives Considered
Alooma
Haven't used the alternatives, since Alooma was one of the earlier ones to the market. From a cursory viewing, however, the features seem to match relatively similarly.

PieSync is much less confusing, and from what I remember, cheaper. But if you need a more robust solution to get more data from system to system, you will need to find something other than PieSync. Zapier can be confusing and complicated to setup. And as you get more and more into the weeds with Zapier, you start realizing that you need to upgrade from plan to plan as you add these more complicated steps.

Alooma
  • Allowing for additional data sources to more automation capability around monitoring the business is a huge ROI

HubSpot
  • PieSync saves our team countless hours of repetitive data input by syncing the data automatically.
  • PieSync has allowed us to use additional specialized marketing software and still be able to keep our contact data synced to our CRM.
  • ROI is positive as the cost has far outweighed the time savings of inputting data and reducing mistakes with client data.
