Apttus

I think Apttus is a great versioning tracking tool. If you want to sub-set its function i.e., not use all the functions simultaneously, then I don't think this is the best product. Make sure to ask about creating record types and loading legacy data. The file sizes of your data needs to be compressed and that is not something that we were told prior to signing an agreement with Apttus. You'll then need to provide active hyperlinks for each mater to be loaded and list the applicable Salesforce account number next to the hyperlink in order for the data load to work. If you do not have this data in a system like SharePoint, which can create an Excel doc that all you'll need to add is the SF account info to, then this can be a very long and manual process. Have a clear idea of your exact use for the RM, there are a lot of functions it cannot do and you shouldn't assume that it will suit your needs down the road. Ask about user licenses. They were very high in my case and we had to limit use to 10 people.Understand what will be included in your implementation process. It requires quite a bit of involvement from the client and you may or may not have the man power to support this

Pros

  • Document management and workflow have been a success. This was the main benefit we were looking for.
  • It is not a very complicated application
  • If you are working with a specific account on a specific design, there is a tie between the NDA and design i.e., a CRM view.
  • The # of IT tickets is modest now that it’s up and running.

  • The interface is fairly intuitive and easy to navigate through.
  • Most options are plug and play since we have a pre-populated list of authorized suppliers to select from. All necessary fields are available to complete purchases.
  • Coupa allows you to document line by line any and all changes that have occurred on a purchase order. We found this very helpful if we ever needed to look back at the change history.

The business is not seeing the value and we are not ready to use the features.

We will likely switch back to native Salesforce.com and customize it to meet our needs or find a smaller vendor

Support

Based on 2 answers
Tier1/tier 2 support can only handle native functionality. Customizations have to be escalated to developers which aren’t included in the support program.

I go ahead and copy the people I directly worked with on implementation for assistance. I would rate them an 8 for support assistance.

Online Training

Based on 1 answer
We attended 5 hours worth of webinars early on.

We had to understand how objects worked to figure out how to structure our data.

I would have liked more in-depth training but it would have been an additional cost

Implementation

Apttus1.0
Based on 3 answers
Be iterative. Take the opportunity to build a catalog based on how Apttus works well. Learn the tool yourself or use an SI. Take the time to build a configuration / pricing migration tool with X-Author for Excel or roll your own. Stick with OOTB Apttus as any customization will cost you every time a new version is released

Alternatives Considered

Apttus is a much more comprehensive solution that any other partner we reviewed.

Coupa does well compared to its competitors. Coupa has an easy to use interface. It's an all cloud based, SaaS. Reporting in Coupa is also above the competition. Coupa also requires less maintenance, upgrades are automatic and we don't need to worry about being on the latest version. Coupa is one of the top vendors in the space!
