Crownpeak DQM

Crownpeak DQM is suited for any organization looking to include automated accessibility as part of its digital compliance program. It is especially well-suited for organizations with multiple websites that need to understand where they are on their automated accessibility journey across different products, project teams, and brands at any given time.

gShift's pace of development is pretty amazing and they are very responsive to enhancement requests and other feedback on their solutions. gShift is well-suited for an agency environment where multiple clients need the basics in keyword rankings and website analytics and PPC reporting integration. gShift is less suited for a large organizations with multiple properties or web presences that are all integrated but require silos for reporting purposes or any type of parent-child reporting relationship that necessitates reporting at the property level as well as summarized reporting for all properties.

Pros

Crownpeak DQM

  • Ensures quality and consistency of content implementation across distributed teams and markets.
  • Quick and easy content updates across global digital ecosystems.
  • Custom checkpoints to identify, highlight and manage business updates across multiple websites (e.g. product detail, terminology, customer messaging, brand updates)

gShift

  • Keyword Rankings - gShift allows you to track keywords by search engine, by device, and by location, giving you side-by-side views how you rank and appear in all use cases. gShift also tracks Google local map rankings, which provides greater insight for businesses with multiple rooftops and locations that want visibility into how customers can find them in different geographical regions of a metro area or on mobile vs. desktop.
  • White-labeled reporting - gShift allows you to run competition reports, keyword ranking reports, and comprehensive web analytics reports that pull in Google Analytics, Google AdWords, and Google Search Console data, making it less likely you have to provide your clients with separate reports from separate, third-party solutions.
  • Custom Dashboards - somewhat similar to Google's dashboard functionality although more limited in scope, you can create custom dashboards to share with members of your organization in real-time or export via PDF.

Cons

Crownpeak DQM

  • It would be helpful if the Issues page under Website showed the WCAG level for each issue (A, AA, AAA). You currently have to look up the guideline to find the level.
  • There is no indicator that a page is currently being scanned. During a website scan, some of the reports are blank or missing information. Having a notification on the main page showing which websites are being scanned would be helpful.
  • Some ADA compliance items are left off, such as keyboard navigation, tabbing, etc.
  • It doesn't view the websites on mobile devices or if using a screen reader. Some pages or formatting changes depending on resolution. The DQM, from what I have seen, doesn't account for that.
Charles Adams | TrustRadius Reviewer

gShift

  • Minor bugs and defects are an ongoing issue - for example, PDF export capability for custom dashboards seems to be down frequently. While these type of defects are always resolved in 1-2 weeks, the fact that some of them keep reoccurring is an ongoing frustration.
  • Custom Dashboard functionality is limited to pre-set defaults as far as what data points or "beacons" as gShift calls them, that you could pull.

To be quite honest I am literally addicted to the tool, over the weekend rescans happen and as soon as I wake up on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday new scores have come in that I love to already take a [peek] at. This is just because the tool is so fun to work with and the dashboards give some great insights directly. The only reason why it doesn't score a full ten is [that] there's no way to go back to the homepage when you're on an individual item page and it's not possible to fully customize the dashboard (I'm now keeping track of past scores [through] a manually filled in Excel).

Online support [is] always quick to reply and usually [has] a fix ready and implemented within hours. Regular catch-ups with Account Managers [have] ensured that issues are addressed even more quickly, with the ability to see the results within days following a re-crawl of the sites. Suggestions for improvement are always taken on board.

Alternatives Considered

Crownpeak DQM

Crownpeak Digital Quality Management (DQM) has all the tools in one dashboard for all possible needs of a website to resolve SEO and other issues. Whereas WordPress is more of searching for the right plugin to assist in finding all the issues you might have a need to address.

Araceli Carrasco | TrustRadius Reviewer

gShift

gShift is more user-friendly and intuitive, particularly for sharing access with members across your organization who do not have the same level of digital marketing savvy. Additionally, gShift integrates reporting for web analytics, search visibility, social metrics, and PPC in one platform and one reporting tool in a way that the other providers do not.

Return on Investment

Crownpeak DQM

  • DQM was definitely a positive ROI. We were able to find and fix several issues because of it. This will undoubtedly save us from possible future lawsuits.
  • DQM has gained IT more trust from Legal. They see that we are being proactive when it comes to potential legal issues.
  • DQM has taken some of the guesswork out of development. We can easily identify issues and steps to correct them. It has also given us best practice techniques.
Charles Adams | TrustRadius Reviewer

gShift

  • We have been able to identify other keyword ranking opportunities and increase our on-site conversion rate.
  • gShift has helped us prioritize content and discover content that is over-performing, and better optimize that content and use it for remarketing purposes.
