Oracle CX Sales (formerly Oracle Engagement Cloud)

It is a really good solution when it comes to insights on companies where you want to place your products because it tells you all the information where you can attach the use of your solution, the only thing is that it needs more information on mid-market.

PersistIQ

PersistIQ is well suited for outbound marketing. It's great for setting up sales and marketing campaigns to new and prospective clients. The fact that PersistIQ emails are basic (they look like normal personal emails) and easy to personalize, makes the whole process feel more genuine than, say, MailChimp.PersistIQ won't replace a bulk emailing tool or CRM. It serves a different purpose than, for example, Marketo or MailChimp, two products we also use

Pros

Oracle CX Sales (formerly Oracle Engagement Cloud)

  • Each time we've had a hurdle, we were given internal assistance to ensure we were not left alone.
  • It is easily customizable to add and subtract anything you see fit (we've added additional filters down to the zip code, state, rep's name, etc. to filter through data most effectively.
  • There is no lag in the system. If you see it there, it is tracked in real time.
Simon Vargas | TrustRadius Reviewer

PersistIQ

  • Integrates well with tools that work with LinkedIn Sales Navigator to scrap lead emails.
  • Makes it easy to manage large-scale cold email campaigns with 3+ steps.
  • When a prospect replies to an email, it doesn't send them any of the automated emails which allow me to follow-up with those warm leads correctly.

Cons

Oracle CX Sales (formerly Oracle Engagement Cloud)

  • Although not necessarily designed for it, our sales team finds it difficult to use the product for tracking demo units.
  • The mobile version of the application falls very short. Our IT department fields a lot of complaints regarding its functionality.
  • Following application upgrades - which are frequent - we often have to rebuild some of the custom screens we created.

PersistIQ

  • They should incorporate smarter reminders that tell me when I should focus on certain leads who are interacting with my emails frequently
  • They don’t have OOO email rescheduling

So far it is all good with BigMachines, looking for new features since Oracle acquisition has created a lot of expectations. We have outlined our limitations (out of box functionality) in our periodic customer successor advice meetings for a while, hope we get a resolution soon. Also, the BigMachines user license fee has increased a lot in the last three years.

The software UI can be as complex or as simple as you need it to be (depending on the business). It does require training others on quote configuration and the order in which to build out order positions prior to configuring a quote. Once users are trained;however, it is fairly straight-forward. The UI is still more static than other new wizard/drag-and-drop models, but it get's the job done

Some specific support personal was good and fixed some problems fast using proper solutions. But when one of them went to sleep when we had critical issues and they do unreported commits to our production environment which caused issues and they were hiding it?? you can not give more than a two (maybe even that is too much). They also failed to add a feature for us which also bring the grade down.

It was a much more technical implementation than we thought. It involved much more code.

Future releases have made and will make administering the tool easier.

EDL consulting had one good developer, but when he was moved off, they were horrible to work with.

The BMI sales team does a “BOA” or a “Business Operation Assessment” which is extremely valuable, not only for them to scope an implementation and get more reach within the organization, but it is also a documentation of business process that most organizations don’t have. It highlights inefficiencies and allows for correction during implementation.

Having a dedicated team (in-house) for implementation is key

Alternatives Considered

Oracle CX Sales (formerly Oracle Engagement Cloud)

We debated a few different options, including a home-grown custom program, uCommerce, and just using only Oracle Commerce Cloud. Since we had already decided to use Oracle Commerce Cloud over uCommerce, the integrations available between OCC, Oracle's ERP system, and Oracle CPQ definitely seemed like the easiest option with the greatest benefits. However, the cost/benefit of Oracle CPQ was more apparent when we were ready to launch more complex configurations across all of our product groups.
Michael Weissberg | TrustRadius Reviewer

PersistIQ

I've used both PersistIQ and Outreach in the past 2 years, so I feel my comparisons should still be fairly accurate. Persist is better for smaller, earlier stage companies looking for a cheaper and easy sales automation tool. Outreach is definitely the more powerful and customizable tool, but can be overkill.

Return on Investment

Oracle CX Sales (formerly Oracle Engagement Cloud)

  • As an account manager who does a lot of their own prospecting, DataFox has literally saved myself and my co-workers hours per week in prospecting. Manually finding companies and assembling lists can take a long time, but with DataFox what took hours before can now be accomplished in 15 minutes.
  • DataFox has allowed our team to reach more companies faster. Expanding our reach means more exposure, which means more demos and more closed deals.
Shane Finnegan | TrustRadius Reviewer

  • It helps me get a lot of emails out efficiently.
  • It's saved me a lot of time.
  • There are times that I feel it's not as good as competitors.
