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

Grin

Grin is great if you rely heavily on Instagram influencers. Instagram is Grin's specialty. They are able to pull engagement rates and content very easily. Grin is also great if you have hundreds of influencers and have been doing things pretty manually. If you have a team that is dedicated to influencer management, Grin makes it easy for your team to manage everything in one place.

In the instances I have had issues its been a little tricky to figure things out, some of the videos are helpful but getting email responses are not great compared to online chat and I have found that the response rates have been more than a day in some instances which is not as responsive as I would like compared to other platforms

Alternatives Considered

ARchitect

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.

Grin

Grin is so much better than the manual process we had in place. We would use three separate apps to manage everything. Grin simplifies it. Not only does grin do great influencer management, but they also do great influencer discovery. For these reasons, Grin is so much better than everything we've tried so far.

Return on Investment

ARchitect

  • We don't measure ROI and ARchitect. It is an essential tool for us and fortunately I've not had to justify our ongoing investment by demonstrating ROI.
