DemandTools is perfect for any system that constantly adds new records to its database. For example, in higher education, we are constantly purchasing search names from various vendors and DemandTools allows us to make sure we are not doubling up on the same records. It saves us money in the long run as we are not mailing out multiple copies of our brochures to the same person.

It is good hardware/software to do VMWare backup, very reliable and convenient device.
backup may be less appropriate to do due to specific software needs.
Read full review Pros PowerGrid can review and make the updates simultaneously. Single Table Dedupe makes merg[ing] the records easy and can make updates at the same time. BulkBackup [is] just one click, majority data got updated. Scenarios save a lot of time for similar working load. Read full review A perfect solution for D2D backups. We are seeing a large savings with the de-duplication piece. Very versatile device. We like being able to use any backup protocol we need to for the many diverse jobs we have in the medical industry. Interface is simple and easy to use. Read full review Cons I wish I could make changes to my existing scenarios using save rather than having to create a whole new scenario. Maybe you can, I just haven't been able to. Some features aren't user intuitive and it takes a while to learn. Read full review Every feature on the Quantum requires a license purchase, this is seriously annoying and drives the cost of the device up The cost of the device is somewhat high Active Directory integration is a bit of a pain Read full review Likelihood to Renew
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.

DemandTools is a bit clunky and slow at times
Read full review Support Rating
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. Read full review
Support from Quantum was okay, they performed FW upgrade and replaced few faulty disks without any problem. Some old-style connections and requirements from them produced additional loads on our IT team.

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.
Read full review Implementation Rating
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.

Though RingLead has much more to offer in terms of automation (and it is in Salesforce rather than a separate program), DemandTools still has our heart. DemandTools is very cost-friendly and we were able to increase the value of DemandTools by programming in additional saved scenarios. I decreased admin time in the DemandTools suite by approximately 25% after implementing saved scenarios for every reoccurring update or list upload.

The only aleternative looked at prior to the DXi was ExGrid, while both are great options the DXi offered a little more versatility and the support has been terrific.

It's done everything we've needed it to do.
Read full review Return on Investment It is a tremendous time saver. It does things Salesforce doesn't even have the capability to do. Tasks that would take hours to manually complete. We can process a tremendous amount of data daily through one person, vs. weeks for the data to be cleaned, reviewed, routed and input. Saves on headcount by allowing a dedicated user to set up batches and jobs for other teams to ensure their data integrity. The return on investment isn't easily quantifiable but it is FELT in our department.
