Clari

Clari can be used as an excellent platform to include all critical data for sales purposes. All forecasting activities and management can be handled in one single place like Clari. Also, Clari apps give you an immediate area for your notes and to provide visibility to others to help and improve the sales process.

Microsoft Power BI

From being able to import data from a plethora of sources and clean and establish relationships between them; create sublime real-time dashboards; to sharing them with your team members to collaborate, nothing can beat the comprehensive features of Power BI with the kind of aggressive pricing that they have set. The available charts and figures are so pleasing to the eyes that the resultant dashboard feels like a renaissance painting.

Pros

Clari

  • Allows for more efficient funnel management - quick ability to update sales funnels in real time.
  • Provides transparency for leadership to see what is happening with the deals in real time.
  • Able to see the whole story within the sales cycle for upper management down to rep level, as well as those not within sales, to get an understanding of the state of the business.

Microsoft Power BI

  • Very quick and easy to filter down and look [at] granular sets of data.
  • Easy to switch between various tabs for quick ad-hoc reporting.
  • Easy to read and analyze the charts that we set up.
  • Real time, or near real time data, which allows us to make actionable insights easier.
Greg Watkins | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Clari

  • Limited functionality. Really the only use case for me is forecasting and deal reviews.
  • Allow all managers to edit reps stages and numbers with a notification.
  • Does not require manual commit numbers to be confirmed. Should auto-commit the previous week's number if no change is needed.

Microsoft Power BI

  • Shared web reports (to external users via iFrame) are not really responsive, they can just resize automatically
  • The integration with Azure is tricky to achieve some configurations (for example, security settings)
  • Power Query is a waste of time and can be replaced by database queries and procedures

It is a great product, but unless you already have a lot of experience with similar software it can be a little difficult to really get going in using the software. Once you get the hang of the UI and the data importing/sync, it is pretty simple to build the reports you need and to manage and update those reports.

Clari is very willing to jump in and build out use cases. They will work to do anything for you. That said, their follow up is not great. We have had to reach out for follow up several times on a project, which is still not complete. I wish they taught us how to complete what we want, rather than doing it in house for us

I didn't have to deal directly with the support team, but they seemed to be responsive with our team of developers. If we had an urgent issue, we were typically able to get it resolved with a quick turnaround time. They are experienced employees, so I would assume nothing less, so it was nice to have those expectations met.

Alternatives Considered

Clari

Not familiar with other products in the quote to close space. I have not used others, as Clari has been our first and we have been very pleased with it, so I have had no need to evaluate other competitors to it.

Microsoft Power BI

The primary other visualization tool I think of is Tableau. Tableau is fine and both options are usable as long as the underlying data architecture is good. I still prefer Power BI because I think it works better with the other Microsoft Applications and I find it cleaner to use.

Return on Investment

Clari

  • Clari has helped some of our managers become more accurate in their predictions as well as help them assess quickly how business is flowing. This helps us focus on the deals that are critical and take action. They feel more productive and in control of their pipeline.
Candi Bashiri | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Power BI

  • Positive - Allowing users to migrate from Excel to a more modern platform saving hundreds of man hours from dealing with poor data practices and VBA related shenanigans.
  • Positive - Good and inexpensive entry point to serve as a starting point on educating developers and end users on data visualization best/worst practices.
  • Negative - Another barrier to hiring, as users are expected to have Power BI experience which lowers the number of potential candidates.
