Marketo RTP is great for companies in later stages that require greater customization or API integrations with their own marketing/sales tools. The integration with Salesforce also makes it worthwhile for companies that already have Salesforce setup in some workflows. As stated before, Marketo is quite expensive, so it might not be suitable for earlier-stage companies and startups that are just getting started with marketing and sales.

PRPC is a
and Case management suite from Pega Systems. Pega is a comprehensive suite which offers a unique theme of
development in the market. A no-coding approach based on rules with inheritance makes Pega a very powerful product but is very difficult to learn. Even, if we go to Pegasystems for training, we have to work on a project at least for a year to have some confidence. Areas where it requires improvements: 1) One of the first things that client's IT department questions about is proprietary BLOB column in PRPC, for them, it is a disadvantage, but as we all know BLOB is what makes the highly complex data model of any
application fit inside to a common schema which eliminates the help of a DBA. 2) Another area of improvement is: when using the wizards to generate rules (such as the connector wizards) you have to be careful about the level of coupling between the work object's data model and the interface's data model. This can also create maintenance issues. 3) The complete Pega suite of products have a long time to develop and deploy and it can be easily done using other low-cost software.

Building overlays (pop-ups) needs to be done outside of the tool and default selections look dated. Read full review Pega Customer Engagement Suite is ready to use out of the box with several features, but custom development is always needed. Although new features can be quickly implemented, they have to go through a screening Business analysis process, QA screening and SCRUM based development. Pega eliminates the need for custom code, but there are rare cases where an specific requirement has little to no support from Pega, and implementing custom code can break OOB functionality and make the system unstable.

We actually had a very good onboarding process. The rep from Marketo was very knowledgable and set up regular meetings with us to make sure we understood how to use everything. He gave us ideas for potential personalizations and had best-practice tips. Unfortunately, his knowledge was not enough to overcome some of the biggest issues with the solution.

's RTP module and
's smart content offering, and
's smart content has ultimately become my personalization tool of choice. Here's why:
HubSpot's smart content tools are simple to grasp and easy to implement from start to finish. There's a lot of room for improvement when it comes to ease of use and overall user experience within Marketo's RTP module. For less tech-savvy marketers, HubSpot's training documentation and support team is an absolute lifesaver. Marketo has failed us time and time again on this front, despite the fact that we pay an additional fee for Premier Support and quarterly consulting. Marketo's tool is more robust and more powerful, but they don't take the time to create supporting documentation to help end-users leverage RTP, nor do they take the time to train their support staff on how it works. HubSpot's smart content does what we need it to do, and we don't burn time in the process trying to figure out how to use it. Read full review
