HoneyBook
I would recommend Honeybook to other coaches, consultants, and small business owners. It may not be appropriate for a large team's use, but works for the size of organization I currently own and manage. It also integrates with QuickBooks and makes financial data management fairly seamless.

SAP Sales CLoud is not useful in cases where it needs zero downtime upgrades or new monthly releases or micro frontends.Although it is great for any cloud deployments, provides a unified view for the customers. Helps in AI insights recommendations and analytics. It is also optimised for mobile . It is robust and a highly scalable cloud plaform

Pros
HoneyBook
  • HoneyBook offers incredible resources to train users how to best use their system. It's informative and eye-opening to watch one of their training sessions.
  • I love how easy HoneyBook makes it to create highly professional materials that are beautiful. Its brochures and selling materials are stellar and I'm able to streamline the process without feeling like I actually have to sell my capabilities.
  • I'm thrilled with the billing system and how simple it is to automate. I love that I can see how my customers have engaged with the bills.
  • The app helps me feel connected to my leads and data while I'm away from my computer.

  • Help sales teams decide based on relevant data
  • Provide a framework to guide sales teams on activities such as status updates, customer success, sales qualification, etc
  • Reduce manual work by predictive analysis, that is, by understanding when a template can be helpful, updating a manager on a finished task, etc

Cons
HoneyBook
  • The online scheduling tool does not work with different time zones very well. It doesn't automatically adjust to my clients' timezones and it doesn't even have many international time zones as an option! I had 3 clients in a row schedule meetings at the wrong time when I first started using HoneyBook's scheduler. I had to switch to Calendly because HoneyBook's scheduling tool was causing me to lose business.
  • The transaction fees for instant deposits are expensive.
  • [I believe} many of the features on HoneyBook are half-baked. It's marketed as an all-in-one business management platform, but I'm still using Calendly, Google Drive, Typeform, Clockify, and ClickUp because HoneyBook's equivalent features aren't as sophisticated or as easy to use.
  • The notes section for client projects does not have much space or allow for any custom formatting such as hyperlinks, bold text, highlighted text, etc. Tools such as Teamwork, Pipedrive, Asana, and ClickUp do a much better job at displaying this type of information.

  • One area of concern is the many data silos that are present within SAP sales cloud
  • While creating filters for accessing sales lead reports, the accuracy is missing sometimes.
  • The product is quite vast and a lot more learning material and knowledge base documents are required.

Since I do not use ALL the functionality in HoneyBook, I have wondered if the plan I am on is too much. That is why I rated a 9 rather than 10. I have definitely considered downgrading but not leaving HoneyBook.

Usability

This is now a copy-paste response since this platform is asking me to answer every single question. It is such a negative experience with Honeybook that they even upset me while I'm trying to warn others of all the horrible pitfalls in working with the platform.

Product was mostly available. A couple accessibility issues did exist when sending API calls, and there was either no response, or a delayed response.

Support Rating
HoneyBook
They have ALWAYS been amazing when I needed any type of service or help. Their concierge service is also amazing vs other services I have used in the past. I have confidence when I ask for help - both through Chat or even on their Facebook group that I will get an answer quickly.

SAP's customer service is quick and efficient, with a response time of fewer than some minutes. In either case, you'll get instant help from the vendor or online forums. In addition, the vendor provides excellent global support for this tool. Like Salesforce, SugarCRM, etc., it's probably fine as a standalone CRM option.

The API documentation is good. Development team was able to implement in under two weeks, and normally we were told it was a 12-14 week process.

Alternatives Considered
HoneyBook
We switched to HubSpot after a few years of the company using HoneyBook. We switched to HubSpot because we needed more features that would allow us to automate our processes and pull better data on our clients, their vendors, and our overall client process. I appreciated that HoneyBook was its own booking/payment system, that it was easy to use and set up, but ultimately that was not enough to keep us in the platform.

We went with SAP Sales Cloud over Oracle Sales Cloud because it just clicks better with our way of doing things. SAP is like the superhero of sales software – it plays super well with all our other systems, grows with us as we get bigger, and gives us really smart insights into our sales. Plus, it's easy for our team to use, and we can tweak it to fit exactly how we work. While Oracle is good, SAP is like the perfect fit for our sales superhero team.

  • Positive Impact: SAP Sales Cloud can lead to increased sales efficiency by automating manual tasks, streamlining workflows, and providing real-time access to customer data. This can result in sales teams spending more time on revenue-generating activities.
  • Negative Impact: The initial costs associated with implementing SAP Sales Cloud, including licensing, customization, and training, can be significant. If not managed properly, this may impact the short-term financials and the expected payback period.
  • Negative Impact: The comprehensive features of SAP Sales Cloud might result in a steeper learning curve for users. If not addressed through adequate training and change management, this complexity can temporarily impact productivity.
