ARchitect

If you have an AR program across the globe and want to track all interactions you have with them, this tool is right for you. As you can imagine the tool is only as good as the data you put in, so you do have to make it part of your work day to input the data. Say a team member leaves and you have to jump in to cover for them, you are able to see all the interactions they have had with analysts

It's such a great FREE tool for businesses to use. I would recommend to anyone! Even if whoever doesn't find it particularly helpful for their industry, they will know based on the free version to not invest.

Pros

  • ARchitect allows us to capture all interactions with the analyst community on a daily basis and for our big events. This information is shared across the team.
  • ARchitect allows us to capture data from each individual interaction on the key items discussed, follow-up items and we are able to attach ppts, reports, or any document used during the interactions.
  • ARchitect Event Manager allows us to build out our 1:1 agendas for big events, the system provided avoids conflicts for spokespeople as well as analysts. This module also allows us to print our complete agendas for the analysts. We are also able to send Outlook meeting planners to both internal and external 1:1 participants.

Cons

  • It would be great if ARcitect was able to add a field for staffers for event 1:1s, having this as a separate field would be helpful.

  • You can find cheaper tools - doesn't feel you are getting enough for the price you pay

Alternatives Considered

Prior to using ARchitect, we were using Salesforce. While we did have some customization added, it did not nearly have the robustness that ARchitect provides -- especially since it is designed for AR professionals. We've been using ARchitect for about 8 years and have never looked back. Some examples of vast improvements: 1. Analyst firms/bios. With Salesforce, we needed to maintain all analyst bios -- something that ARchitect does.2. Analyst coverage. We used to track all analyst coverage by visiting multiple analyst websites and manually pasting into spreadsheets. We now not only get a feed of coverage that can be exported into Excel, but we can also customize reports by topic.3. Reporting. Salesforce did not provide the same reporting capabilities that ARchitect provides.

I've tried many many tools to find good content. Tools like Scoop.it are close but don't have the utility of showing how many shares an article has. So finding the right content is still guess work. Feedly and RSS feeds are just too time-consuming. Percolate claims to find you the best content, but we trialed it and ran a test against our own content, it did not perform better.

Return on Investment

  • The Event Module has taken days if not weeks out of the prep process for big events.
  • ARchitect is a great way to allow communication with peers, without the need for extra emails, ect, because everyone on the team can see what each other is doing and who they are talking to about which topics.
