NetBase Quid

In my use of [NetBase] Quid, I found the tool particularly suitable for curating pertinent content. It allowed me to develop more comprehensive analysis at a larger scale, all while substantially reducing the amount of research time needed. It is also a plus that [NetBase] Quid is delivered as a web app. I did some of my [NetBase] Quid work on a low-end Chromebook without issues.

Salesforce likely isn't going to be your first CRM. However, if you have a Sales team and are looking for a more advanced and possibly customizable way to run your funnel from Sales to Customer Success, you can't go wrong with Salesforce. It truly is the industry standard.

Pros

NetBase Quid

  • Their NLP is very strong with the ability to distinguish subject in sentences and then apply analysis based on either the subject or sentence. Competitors lack strong NLP and often have lower degrees of accuracy.
  • The platform is highly flexible with dozens of ways to filter and cut the data. It is great for an analyst that really wants to deep dive into the data. However, the analysis done automatically by NetBase is also strong enough that less experienced users would still be able to gain insight with ease.
  • The customizable dashboards are perfect for client reporting and drastically reduce the amount of time spent preparing recurring reports and decks. These are also very flexible depending on reporting needs.

  • Automation: The ability to streamline complex processes is a nice benefit of the platform. It can become an amazing time-saver.
  • User Management and Creation, one initial profile and role setups are complete, is really simple and very quick.
  • Reporting, once your customization is complete, is very easy to build and export for whatever data visualizations you may need.
Kurt Johansen | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

NetBase Quid

  • Dashboards can only currently be exported as PDFs. It would be helpful to have a more read/writable format (eg. PPT) that enables us to combine Netbase's outputs with other sources, or to make them more consistent with our own branding (colours, fonts etc.)
  • The business model revolves around a limited number of login seats. I would like to be able to roll out the tool to make it available/accessible to more people in the business, but the pricing model makes this impractical/uneconomical.
  • Logging out users after a period of inactivity can be frustrating when multitasking/task switching and unsaved work is lost.
  • While Netbase's focus on language processing is its key strength, additional functionality around social analysis (eg. people who follow a brand account, users who talk about X are also likely to talk about Y) is somewhat limited.
Scott Thompson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Salesforce

  • Sales Cloud is heavy software which needs much time for launching.
  • Also many times I find difficulty in searching for the right tool because there are so many features available so they need to place in well-organized categories
  • It is expensive software and only large companies could purchase it conveniently.

We've had a good experience using the tool and have invested quite a bit of time training the internal team on how to get the most benefit out of it. There would need to be a compelling reason or business case to port over all of our existing topics and tool know-how to another platform.

While it's not perfect and can be overly complicated at times, there is not another solution out there that can do what it does. To get the same functionality you would need numerous disparate tools to match the amount of functionality Salesforce has. Having it all aggregated on one platform makes the complicated parts far more bearable

Very simple to use, quick to pick up on the key principles, and a task-centric design (ie. Topics to set up what you want to analyze, Analysis to do the exploration/analysis, and Dashboards to pull results and findings together to generate reports.) All intuitive, drag & drop etc.

[Salesforce.com] provides an ease of use from two different perspectives. If you're an administrator of the platform, it is easy to navigate and go through the set up process. They focus on a clicks not code mentality, but if you have to customize your [Salesforce.com] instance through code, it's also easy for developers to develop directly in the platform. As for the end-user experience, they've come a long way with Salesforce Lightning and the ability to navigate between records and tables. The only slight negative is that it can be a bit cumbersome to fully customize the UI due to the way the metadata is currently set up.

Salesforce is always available securely from any internet-capable device anywhere in the world, UNLESS you choose to set security measures so that ONLY trusted IP ranges may access the system at certain times of the day. It's all about choice and flexibility with Salesforce products.

NetBase constantly updates the platform with features. The platforms ability to analyze complex social listening topics is exceptional. Its fast and gives you the ability to create standardized reports for a quick topic analysis. Additionally, the standard overview tab provides the topic at a glance and assists in quickly identifying areas to further analyze. Great product with excellent support behind it!

Salesforce performance in general is excellent. "The cloud infrastructure beneath Force.com has been fine-tuned over the past 10 years. It powers nearly 100,000+ businesses running more than 185,000 applications that 3 million users count on every day."
Points per Salesforce -
1) Multitenant kernel - With a multitenant platform, each business that uses the app doesn’t have its own copy. Instead, all businesses share a single copy and then customize it for their specific needs.
2) ISO 27001 certified security - You can’t compromise when it comes to enterprise-level security. Force.com is road-tested and trusted by nearly 100,000+ companies, including many of the world’s most security-conscious organizations, such as banks and health care providers.
3) Proven reliability - All Force.com apps run on world-class data centers with backup, failover, and disaster-recovery facilities. Force.com has had a proven 99.9 percent uptime record for years.
4) Proven, real-time scalability - Force.com is used by many of the world's largest enterprises, including Cisco, Japan Post Network, and Symantec. Applications can automatically scale from a few users to millions of page views, as needed.
5) Real-time query optimizer - You need fast access to your data. The Force.com query optimizer delivers under 300ms response time, at a massive scale.
6) Real-time transparent system status - You can always see real-time system performance, availability, and security information at trust.salesforce.com.
7) Real-time upgrades - Unlike traditional software platforms, our upgrades never break your customizations, code, or integrations. We upgrade the platform for you 3 to 4 times each year. As a result, you’re always on the latest version, with access to the latest features, performance, and security enhancements.
8) Real-time sandbox environments - With a single click, you can create copies of your applications, configuration, and data in separate environments for development, testing, and training.
9) Three global production data centers and disaster recovery - Force.com runs on three geographically dispersed, mirrored data centers with built-in replication, disaster recovery, a redundant network backbone, and no single points of failure

I gave this rating because I do not deal with SFDC support. That is the function of our Salesopps person. Last week though, it was incredibly frustrating that the site was undergoing maintenance in the middle of the day. It was very disruptive to the entire team and we lost about 2 hours of productivity. Make the hours that it will be down during the night so people don't lose time in their workday.

I attended two training sessions. I would rate them a 4 as an advanced user. It was very basic – great for someone new – would give 8+ for new person.

I had 3 years of experience at the time. I skipped basic and went onto advanced and still not helpful. A lot of it was best practices that didn’t feel relevant for our business

We had an internal implementation meeting with the NetBase team as well as a business seat implementation for one of our clients. I would highly recommend having all stakeholders attend an implementation meeting as they can understand the power of this platform.

Just from an organizational standpoint - we standardized our data prior to moving to Salesforce. But we essentially standardized it wrong. That's created a big disgusting mess for us know that I'll have to deal with as the Admin. Be sure you think through use cases prior to doing something like that - seek outside opinions on how the data will work best, especially depending on what else you're going to integrate with Salesforce.

Alternatives Considered

NetBase Quid

Meltwater took too long to load whenever you had to change keywords, their customer service was not very responsive, and their interface was not very customizeable. We decided to search for a new software company and we invited many companies to present. We selected Netbase after a free trial for reasons stated earlier.
Melissa Schwartz | TrustRadius Reviewer

Salesforce met our needs at the time of implementation. We liked that it was hosted in the cloud and could be customized for our needs.
However, we are in the process of moving from Salesforce to Microsoft Dynamics as the Salesforce solutions are too costly for how it is being used and its frequency of use. There was a steep learning curve that was needed to implement the customizations of the Salesforce solutions we implemented.

I've worked with Salesforce since 2001 in companies ranging from 4 to hundreds of sales people and the system has been able to scale and perhaps more importantly expand (functionally) to the needs of larger organizations. In fact in my previous company, as a provider of a solution that integrated with Salesforce, we had customers that had thousands of sales people using Salesforce.

Return on Investment

NetBase Quid

  • Positive - NetBase allows us to quickly gather a high level over view of a topic, which helps for new business pitch and being able to inform the account teams of basic information.
  • Negative - We have to use other tools to gather news, which affects our budget.
Scott Reitzel | TrustRadius Reviewer

Salesforce

  • It's had a positive return for the company in that they can dive into individual rep accounts to improve the quality of conversations about opportunities
  • The reporting and analytics it provide have been positive and allow the company to better forecast, improving the ability to properly budget and plan
  • Salesforce requires a certain level of expertise on staff, so in addition to the cost of Salesforce there are payroll and training expenses required
