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.

Moz Local is a great alternative as well as a compliment to Yext. The service has a smaller network but is just as powerful. The dashboard is super easy to load your location information into and allows the product to do the work by distributing the data across platforms. Issues are easily identifiable and can easily be corrected. Depending on your service level package, you also can have access to reviews and be able to monitor those as you see fit. I would strongly recommend this service to anyone who has a local business they are looking to get seen across the web. For a larger business, I'd consider a larger company with a bigger network.

Cons
gShift Labs
  • 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.

  • Expansion of network.
  • Needs to be easier to access, too many clicks within Moz suite.
  • Generally speaking, they are solid.

Moz is just as good as Yext, the only major difference is the size of the network.
