Likelihood to Recommend

Apttus

I would not recommend this product to anyone. This product is hard to manage, requires development in house which becomes expensive. The tool itself is extremely expensive for the features it delivers. And ultimately, the sales "bait and Switch" will occur on you, which will require you to buy more licenses or add-ins that were not planned on to get the desired feature set.

Pros

  • The perceived power strength is that it is supposed to contain CPQ, Contract Management, Document generation and template manipulation, and cash/invoice process all in one wrapped package.
  • It was developed on the Force.com platform.
  • They provide multiple releases of their product per year.

  • Automation's are easy to build and can be modified as per business requirements quickly
  • The built-in connectors to third-party tools like a telephony system or platforms like Facebook are very easy to use.
  • The API connectors & Web-hooks are simple to use and can be integrated with your core systems.

Cons

  • The GUI design of Apttus is configurable but prescriptive. If you want a very specific look and feel, it will take some effort to do so. There have been some modern design updates recently using AngularJS. Check it out to see if it works for you.

  • LeadSquared has a lot of room to improve on the CRM aspects.

It is critical to our sales process. We are not satisfied with all aspects of the product and have gone through many tough experiences with their PS, support, and PD teams -- but we're not unhappy enough to re-build what we're already built

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

We used QuoteWerks which did not integrate well with Salesforce. It had no approval process and the price book lived on each person's computer. If they did not connect to the server they were quoting old pricing. It allowed them to create products on the fly.

Much more cost-effective than the other solutions on this list. HubSpot's A/B testing and email marketing library is much better, but not needed when you compare costs.
