Oracle CRM

Oracle CRM is incredibly well suited to handle the customer service needs of a growing business. It is capable of scaling with your company. We can monitor every step of the ordering process and provide quick and accurate information to our customers if they request it. We can easily handle returns and replacements as well.

Sage CRM

Only having one primary contact can cause issues for companies who are more specialized and custom. We deal with many people throughout the company so this can cause issues on trying to figure out who to contact. Creating advanced custom screens are also rather complicated and many times would require outside work to complete.For retail it is much more simplistic and easy to use. Storing all customer information along with communication info is simple.

Pros

Oracle CRM

  • Several of our members were not familiar with various IT functions within CRM prior to working with it and so they were able to develop a working knowledge of IT pretty quickly afterwards.
  • It has a familiar feel to it as it allows users to work the data into a spreadsheet type layout with pivot tables and graphs and so it is quick to adopt.
  • Customization is great with a working knowledge of HTML, which isn't too hard to learn. You can really adapt CRM to any needs stylistically or content wise.
Joseph R. Sweeney | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sage CRM

  • SAGE CRM is a very clean and easy to use interface and easy to navigate around. Users seem to instantly understand with very little training where they are in the system, which is not always true of other system we have used in the past. The Key sometimes is removing 'clutter' for that user.
  • Sales and Sales Manager tend to find it is very intuitive and since it is flexibly with its design, we have created various extra option to improve sales peoples management of Contracts, Events and even Samples, saving and eliminating multiple spreadsheets.
  • Case Management and workflow capabilities together with the ability to offer Self Service and embed into your website has been very powerful and a number of client have found this can save them tremendous time. Adding in automatic notifications through a powerful workflow capability can save hours of time for the Users
  • Flexible Reporting using a wizard approach means that the system is easy to train on and for users we find that they embrace this even more since they feel an ownership for the CRM system, something that all CRM User aspire too.
  • Flexible licencing and Editions. Not always well known, but SAGE CRM has two editions (somewhat confusing) the Cloud or SAGE CRM.com doest use the same naming convention, but these are Standard And Advanced Editions. However, in particular, there is a Concurrent Licence option, albeit at a premium, but we once saved a client over £14000 on a 50 user system when they migrated to SAGE CRM Concurrent from their existing Named Licence CRM system, paying for the complete migration in year One

Cons

Oracle CRM

  • The Oracle 11.5.10 CRM forms are not easily or intuitively customizable to facilitate speed or ease of use. Custom forms are not supported by Oracle support, but call center functions require throughput velocity that the standard forms do not provide. The forms are also inflexible when it comes to selection-driven information or in-procedure guidelines. Data selections in one field should allow the limitation of data selection in other fields and should permit additional information to be made available for the users of the forms.
  • The CRM administrator setups such as groups and territories as well as the dispatch center functionality are painfully slow and cumbersome to use. Not all reasonable filters are made available to ensure that the technician with the right skills is assigned to tasks. More flexibility in this area would improve Oracle 11.5.10 usability tenfold.
  • Overall, the main issue when it comes to sales or service CRMs is always a question of flexibility. "When this customer calls, collect x data." "When a service request is created for that site, include information y for the technician." "Remember to ask the caller for z measurement when they open a service request for the other product type." More intuitive and elastic tools for the ebbs and flows of real service situations would certainly put a feather in Oracle's cap.

Sage CRM

  • One of the areas that Sage CRM is different is the way that Appointments and Tasks are delivered to the user in the interface. This presents a challenge in the way that most people utilize a Calendar in their daily execution. Many companies want to see a color coded Calendar for multiple team members and this is provided through a 3rd party.
  • Executing workflow through the mobile device is another area that users have requested. With such a strong workflow and escalation engine extending to the mobile interface would be groundbreaking in the CRM industry.
  • The data loading tools also need some work. In today's world we often extend the platform for unique entities and today we use 3rd party tools for any data migration besides basic customer and contact information.

There are really no other words to say, it is a very easy to use application that is more straightforward and has provided better results with the bulk of features that appeal to a very broad amount of users. There may be other CRM platforms out there that are more prevalent, but I have found them to be much more clunky and less intuitive than Sage CRM.

Usability

Oracle CRM

Oracle CRM 8.6
Based on 2 answers
I give this rating because I personally don't have any difficulty using the system. I didn't have any difficulty learning the system either. I know that in my position I am taking complaints from users who are having issues with the oracle sites but most of the time it is user error or a technical issue and they need to be using it in the best way possible. I do think it is one of the easiest sites for applying online and hiring candidates. In my 10 years of dealing with so many other recruiting and career sites like Kenexa Brassring, Erecruit or Peoplesoft, I don't recommend any of those at all. Oracle CRM/Taleo is by far the easiest site for applicants to apply, the easiest site for recruiters to hire and the easiest site to manage your hires.

I give this rating because I don't have any complaints in the area of performance. In my opinion the product's performance is right on the mark. In comparison to other systems I have used for the same purpose - recruiting, hiring and managing hires, I have found Oracle's performance to be the best. Oracle system flows better than any other recruiting system out there.

Sage works very quickly based on the network you are using it on. It is internet based so if your network is slow, it will perform slowly. Reports seem to run reasonably fast, if there is too much information it is trying to populate that could slow it down a little. When Sage CRM is integrated with a Sage ERP product it doesn't tend to slow down either system at all

Generally, if you log an SR, it will get resolved rather quickly. If they need to contact you for more information, the resolution process gets drug out because you have to usually go back and forth with several messages. Some customization involving web-links, java script, and HTML, Oracle does not officially support, so they will not assist you if your links stop working.

It was a great training tool and provided all of the necessary information we needed to implement the sites for our clients. We were provided with a great deal of resources in regards to Oracle CRM. We didn't have any issues with the training at all. The only thing I would say would that there could be more FAQ's for users to read through

Oracle CRM

Oracle CRM 7.7
Based on 2 answers
If you have never used a CRM program is is hard to know exactly what you need. We had lots of changes during implementation and even more afterward once the users started working in it everyday. Also the partner we used didn't inform us about Allotments and not being able to Batch delete custom objects (you can now in recent releases). There were so many unknowns, that if I had it to do over, I would educate myself more and ask more questions of the partner that we used for implementation.

The implementation and upgrades were rather quick and straight forward.Attempting to link Sage CRM with Sage 100 ERP however was a nightmare and will be avoided by us in the future due to numerous issues.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle CRM

MS Dynamics was easy to integrate to MS Power BI. This BI and reporting aspect is a clear strong point for Microsoft. MS solutions seem easier to integrate and learn, but this depends on the IT landscape and the complexity of integrations in a respective company.
Viktor Mulac | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sage CRM

I have evaluated and implemented MS Dynamics CRM from a business perspective, and more recently Salesforce.com CRM as an administarator. Sage was more intuitive than Salesforce, and also less expensice than both of them. At that time, I used Sage CRM because the company I was working with had purchased Sage ERP. However, they never implemented it, but I did implement Sage CRM almost by myself. It is a great tool to manage sales process and marketing campaigns.

  • This software can display in real-time when an order is submitted, received, fulfilled, and shipped out. We are able to know within the week of what new orders came in and how effective we are being from targeting specific regions of the nation.
Simon Vargas | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sage CRM

  • Allowed managers to have visibility into salesperson pipelines with far less communication and time spent by all.
  • Allowed more predicative information on where the business is from a pipeline perspective so we can predict future business and resource requirements.
  • Allowed us to manage our customer support more effectively with less staff and allows cases and information to be passed from one staff member to another easily.
