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.

LeadSquared is well suited when it comes to a 100% inbox delivery rate and dashboard feature like click rate, open rate, bounce rate, etc. LeadSquared is less appropriate when we compare its price to similar products. Sometimes it is difficult for a small organization to afford this but on the other hand, I must say that it is worth to spend.

Pros

Apttus

  • Apttus CPQ handles complex pricing rules with ease. We have tiered pricing, user based pricing, and quantity pricing discounts. Apttus CPQ allows us to easily provide correct pricing based on attributes of the sales rep, the customer and the product.
  • Apttus CPQ administration is easy compared to similar products. As a product available on the Force.com platform, we were able to cross train our Salesforce administrators and take on the additional administrative overhead without significantly increasing our sales operations team size.
  • Apttus CPQ is flexible. We are able to rapidly test and deploy new pricing models and offers using the Apttus model.

  • Value Proposition - The features and service the product offers is great for the price point at which they operate.
  • Service is very customized and personal. Customer Success team is very thorough with their follow-ups and make sure they go the extra mile to get things done.

Cons

Apttus

  • As a SAAS solution with a large amount of R&D being invested, there is functionality that is becoming standard in the platform that previously would have required some customer customization. The incorporation of the standard functionality will require regression testing and migration off of custom code. In the long term this is a positive, but in the short term does create some overhead with testing.

  • Reports section can be improved.Currently, it does not allow schedule reports to management if they are not a user. Scheduling reports in multiple formats like CSV, EXl or PDF is not available.
  • Callers are not able to view their appointments for the day in a single view
  • Dashboard required has a lot of UI issues and needs an overhaul
  • User management needs to be improved. There are additional users consumed just to manage call routing attest in our use case.

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

It is an excellent value for money solution and is fulfilling all our needs quite efficiently. They keep working on the product and each month sees an update allowing for a bug free experience and faster incorporation of newer tools. I see no reason why I would not like to renew the subscription for this fabulous product.

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.

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

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

At the time of selection, we assessed other configuration tools to include Selectica and Big Machine. We decided on Apttus because of it configuration flexibility and the fact that it was built on the Salesforce.com platform. That allowed us to configure and customize for our specific use case. It also gave us other capabilities such as integration to the CRM and ability to generate reports and dashboards

I looked closely at Infusionsoft. While the nurturing/decision tree tool of Infusionsoft was far more sophisticated, the many negative reviews of Infusionsoft lead me to look elsewhere. Leadsquared had very positive reviews and aggressive pricing. It has less features, but the features they have were the ones I wanted to focus on.

Return on Investment

Apttus

  • I cannot speak to lead conversion because we used it solely for the CRM component. I did like the reporting functionality, which was very customizable, so if I wanted to know how many customers agreements were terminating 3 months out, I could run a report for that. This made our lives much better.

  • Leads Management has become very easy.
  • Automated Lead Nurturing helps reduce a lot of manual work.
  • A lot of our time goes into creating custom reports. Making the reporting feature more flexible and robust will help in saving a lot of time and energy.
