The design is clean, modern, professional, user friendly, intuitive and really represents our brand. They gave us some great coaching and guidance as we were creating and preparing content. It was a really fun project!

Cons
Claritysoft
  • Needs to have the ability to be able to change accounts, opportunities, leads, and contacts over to another rep without having to go into each field separately--this is extremely time-consuming.
  • Would like to see each page be able to bring up more then 100 clients at a time.

  • Girls PACT is located in Los Angeles. Newsletters are scheduled for PST, yet distributed on EST. It’s an odd glitch and may be a user error.

Alternatives Considered
Claritysoft
Claritysoft's emails are much easier to use since Salesforce is in the middle of switching from Classic to Lightning. Also, Salesforce does not have a native group edit option. Claritysoft is much more data driven and you can use all functions of Excel to customize reports. However, Claritysoft does not have as many third-party add-on options compared to Salesforce's app exchange.

Return on Investment
Claritysoft
  • Our previous application did not offer the data details that recently became oftenly asked for by our client. This would cause long waits to build out reporting function via a supportive application. With Claritysoft, we have been able to build internally, reports asked for by the client, as well as offer other reports our client had not thought of. It's ROI is continues to grow week to week it seems.
  • The interaction with the Outlook client in our environment has been less than impressive, but that may be indicative of the parameters and not the fault of the application.
  • Setting up accounts, laying permissions and roles, has been a night and day, positive change, compared to our predecessor.
