Ideal for eCommerce. It is not the cheapest for a startup but one of the best for a scaling business.

Pega Customer Engagement Suite

PRPC is a BPM and Case management suite from Pega Systems. Pega is a comprehensive suite which offers a unique theme of BPM development in the market. A no-coding approach based on rules with inheritance makes Pega a very powerful product but is very difficult to learn. Even, if we go to Pegasystems for training, we have to work on a project at least for a year to have some confidence. Areas where it requires improvements:1) One of the first things that client's IT department questions about is proprietary BLOB column in PRPC, for them, it is a disadvantage, but as we all know BLOB is what makes the highly complex data model of any BPM application fit inside to a common schema which eliminates the help of a DBA. 2) Another area of improvement is: when using the wizards to generate rules (such as the connector wizards) you have to be careful about the level of coupling between the work object's data model and the interface's data model. This can also create maintenance issues.3) The complete Pega suite of products have a long time to develop and deploy and it can be easily done using other low-cost software.

Cons

ContactPigeon

  • The UI is too complex sometimes (hopefully their support is always there for us!)
Apostolis Lianos | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pega Customer Engagement Suite

  • Pega Customer Engagement Suite is ready to use out of the box with several features, but custom development is always needed.
  • Although new features can be quickly implemented, they have to go through a screening Business analysis process, QA screening and SCRUM based development.
  • Pega eliminates the need for custom code, but there are rare cases where an specific requirement has little to no support from Pega, and implementing custom code can break OOB functionality and make the system unstable.

Alternatives Considered

ContactPigeon

ContactPigeon is built for eCommerce, while Mailchimp is super easy and a good fit for a smaller company. That's why we switched since we needed a more complete, all-in-one marketing automation solution to scale our online business.

Pega Customer Engagement Suite

We evaluated Marketo as another potential customer engagement partner but felt that they did not offer nearly the same flexibility in terms of process management that Pega did. Also, Pega seems to be years ahead of Marketo when it comes to leveraging AI for decision making and predictive analytics.
