DemandTools

The tool is absolutely sufficient for accomplishing data manipulation tasks. I can't think of an example of a task I wanted to but could not execute within Demand =Tools. However, due to some of the issues with UI and the need for a VM to use the tool, I am incredibly hesitant to roll this out to other users. As a result, until there is a large need for someone to operate with their own license, all work is funneled through me. This is less than preferable, but I ran into so many issues with our Marketing Ops person when getting him set up with the tool that I'm wary to do it again.

  • Report/Find IDs is the hidden gem of DemandTools. It is basically a super fast vlookup against your entire database. Easily add data to a report or find the records that match a list. I used this feature extensively when migrating data to a new org to do a compare numbers.
  • Data export by object is so easy and the ability to pull data from any related object is powerful. I find myself using data export more then running reports in SF because it's so much faster and hugely flexible.
  • Every module has clear steps and in-line help.

Cons

SAS DataFlux

  • DataFlux handled all of our data integration needs. It could be considered pricey when compared to Microsoft's bundled SSIS product.
Robert Goodman | TrustRadius Reviewer

DemandTools

  • Information overload for new users, due to the large number of things DemandTools can do (not inherently a bad thing, but still a challenge early-on).
  • In a similar fashion, it's hard to determine what DemandTools can and can't do out-of-the-box.
  • Hard to find documentation that gives a high-level overview of whether DemandTools can do what you want to attempt or not.

We are happy with the software and its functionality. As a SAS-shop, DataFlux is a logical choice for complex data integration.

It's a great product. The only thing that holds us back is it was frustrating working with their sales team. We also don't like that when Validity purchased DemandTools they immediately started charging us quite a bit while it had been free for non-profit users when CRMFusion owned it. They also don't let you buy it for just 1 or 2 seats, you have to pay, I believe, in batches of 100 seats.

Support can be slow so do not expect quick turn for urgent issues.
Help for specific queries not not there. Product tech support is offered. It would be great if query support, even if paid, was offered
The training webinars help with the basics but not much if you need advanced functionality.

The trainings are free live webinars that give you a solid base for getting started with the program. The only weakness is they don't have any advanced classes.

I had just started using Salesforce about 3 months before I did the implementation myself, and it was easy to do just following their step-by-step instructions.

It has been years since we looked at other tools, and while I know we reviewed four different solutions when we picked Demand Tools, it has been so long I don't remember who. We are so happy with the product, we have not gone to search for any other alternatives since we started using it over 5 years ago.

Return on Investment

SAS DataFlux

  • Complex data integration.
  • SAS integration.
Robert Goodman | TrustRadius Reviewer

DemandTools

  • A positive impact that I see from using DemandTools is that we have less of a need for man-power. Before DemandTools, I deduped records and changed records using native Salesforce products. I just deleted 100,000 records in 5 minutes with DemandTools and to duplicate that function in Salesforce would take much longer and would actually be a more troublesome task to complete.
  • A negative impact that I see is that there are several bundled products that come with the package that we do not need. When we first signed on with DemandTools several years ago, the price was much more reasonable. Since being bought by Validity, DemandTools is now bundled into a larger package with other products and the price more than doubled. We've expressed that we have no need for additional products at this time, but everything is within a bundle. I've utilized multiple packages where those add-on functions can be purchased for an additional price and that's what I think Validity should go back to for their customers.
  • All-in-all, I'm a big advocate of DemandTools and I think it is a vital package for our institution. I personally could not do my job as efficiently as I do without this product.
