Aprimo

I would advise him/her to meet with an Aprimo consultant to understand all of the capabilities of the software. I have a feeling that Aprimo does have the planning capability we urgently desire, but the training platforms Aprimo offers are very limited. Perhaps a valuable proposition would be for certain employees to become power users who are constantly seeking out improvements within our company's use of Aprimo.

Marketo RTP

Marketo RTP is great for companies in later stages that require greater customization or API integrations with their own marketing/sales tools. The integration with Salesforce also makes it worthwhile for companies that already have Salesforce setup in some workflows. As stated before, Marketo is quite expensive, so it might not be suitable for earlier-stage companies and startups that are just getting started with marketing and sales.

Pros

Aprimo

  • In general the capabilities within Marketing Resource Management seem like a platform built by marketers for marketers.
  • The out of the box processes are pretty
  • The uniformity of the user experience across modules makes user training and change management a lot We are still in early stages of using the reporting capabilities, but we can see lots of value in what they Unica was not as standardized.
  • We are still very much focused on adoption.

Cons

Aprimo

  • Very difficult to learn, confusing language and practically no help to speak of.
  • too easy to delete or close a project, and no way to reset or skip a step. (this happens all the time.)

Marketo RTP

  • Lack of training materials, support (even at the premier level), internal expertise (a majority of those I've spoken to with Marketo aren't very knowledgeable about RTP functionality, use cases, etc.), and basic documentation
  • As with a majority of Marketo's modules, the robust functionality tends to overwhelm even the most experienced marketers.
  • In a nutshell: Robust Functionality + Insufficient Documentation + No Training = Underutilized Tools & (Very) Frustrated Customers

Aprimo Marketing Suite On Demand (AMSOD) Is being sunsetted and we are not sold on V 9 yet. We will consider other options because we're not sure that we can justify $1m spend over 3 years to go to full tenant.

Usability

Aprimo

Aprimo 3.7
Based on 4 answers
Relatively easy to learn the basics, but there are a significant number of nuances. The system does not have user-friendly ways of allowing mass data manipulation in order to track large budgets over time. The only solution seems to be exporting into an Excel data dump and then performing analysis from there.

We are struggling with it though I think it’s our firewall i.e. an internal issue. Accessing the software outside or on mobile is faster.

They have a multi-tenant and single tenant option (more expensive) . We bought the single tenant option in anticipation of using Campaign Management and based upon our scale. You get more capabilities with single tenant

Customer service has been responsive and attentive in line with the service we have bought. However, any organization that wants to make investments in Aprimo should plan to make an investment in internal support headcount to serve as the first line of defense for user issues and inquiries otherwise it could become too expensive.

We are on a standard service plan. You get 8 hours/month of whatever you want to ask them. This has been good enough. Will be buying more when we implement campaign management

Aprimo offered a number of hands on sessions customized for each group. As such, they address specific needs and configurations of each team. These sessions also offered another round of cross-functional collaboration in process design.

It was very generic and we took it prior to configuration. It was however adequate to educate our user in the basic capabilities that will have become available to them after deployment.

Implementation

Aprimo

Aprimo 10.0
Based on 1 answer
We were very well supported. TopRight who performed the process/requirements definition as well as project management functions came with ample experience with various marketing automation platforms. They also came with very good multi-channel marketing experience that allowed them to tackle this implementation as a marketing deployment and not a technology deployment. TopRight bring expertise in multi-channels strategy.

Aprimo performed the configuration and training functions. Their personnel were very well versed in their platform and brought much empathy to a deployment that required a great deal of change management.

I am stunned by how many people (from for-profit sector who work here) have not been exposed to these types of platforms. I want to make sure that folks are so accustomed to user interface. When I roll-out campaign management, teaching them the art and science of campaign management versus just learning the tool. TopRight are marketers. They are familiar with all these technologies. Their job has been to define processes, best practices and turn into training. Similar to training from Salesforce.com about funnel mgmt etc, vs. just the product. We will create training modules that are agnostic to the platform

Marketo RTP

We've evaluated Optimizely and Demandbase, but selected Marketo Real-Time Personalization because we felt like it had the best value. Yes, some features are not perfect (yet), but it has all the minimum required features to customize your website experience (and target Adwords campaigns) to your target audience segments. Also, love that we can create segments based on any custom field we have.

Return on Investment

Aprimo

  • The lead management tool improves lead generation by shortening the lead circle in our communications and send leads to a sales team automatically.
  • Aprimo allows the marketing team to improve the quality and timing to communicate by knowing the customer experience with our messages and microsites.
  • Automated response triggers and reports increased the marketing team efficiency.

Marketo RTP

  • Positive - ROI tracking is wonderful. It makes it very clear whether Marketo is paying itself off.
  • Negative - This is quite expensive, it is quite a financial commitment if you choose to purchase Marketo, especially since there are similar sales/marketing tools that are much more affordable.
  • Positive - Integrations with Salesforce makes this super-worthwhile. Not many other competitors have seamless Salesforce integrations.
