Salesforce.com is an excellent option for other businesses as well. Using Salesforce.com has made it easier for us to keep track of our customers. Having everything in one place makes it easier for us to get what we're looking for. It integrates many functions. There's also a cloud-based approach that's convenient to use at any time. I believe the reporting or dashboard could be improved in the future, especially since the Lightning version has some ambiguous filters.

Sprinklr Modern Care

Sprinklr Modern Care is great when paired with a chatbot or with larger, more complex teams that have varied skill sets or languages. It is also great for smaller, niche focus teams as it provides the majority of what all organizations will require from routing, to case assignment to governance and reporting

Pros

Salesforce

  • Salesforce.com is extremely customizable. I would not consider it an out-of-the-box solution, although its standard fields allow for fundamental CRM activities and reporting.
  • Salesforce.com is able to integrate with 100s of third-party softwares—often times creating efficiencies in processes.
  • Reports within Salesforce.com have the ability to be simple as a standard Account report, or you can get very granular with your report filtering to segment a very specific result, eg. Accounts in California who are active clients and fall within the pharmaceutical industry and have a specified market capitalization.

  • Merge topics: I work for a TV show website and TV fans often write in asking the same questions (ie: How do I watch a show? Has ____ been canceled? etc). The ability to merge duplicate questions to one master FAQ topic allows managers to keep our community organized, keep track of how many people have the same question, and save time that would otherwise be spent replying to each person individually.
  • Multiple management seats/levels: Sprinklr Modern Care allows managers to delegate community management tasks to interns and moderators by giving them access to certain features of our forum without giving them "full control" of our account.
  • Official responses: We're able to make sure our employee responses don't get lost in the shuffle of busy conversation on our forums by marking certain responses as "official." This adds a special badge to important replies and pins them to the top, so users can more easily access the most relevant/accurate response to the issue they're reporting or question they're asking.
  • Easy moderator sorting/view: The manager console allows community managers to customize the way they view the forum, and therefore more easily spot high-priority items. Sort by post date, number of replies on a topic, or filter posts to view topics that have not yet been addressed by an employee to make sure nothing slips through the cracks.

Cons

Salesforce

  • Costs vs. ROI: The initial cost to BUILD whatever instance your SF sales rep presents to you and sells; the COST associate to get to that build is NEVER explained or discussed.
  • The Salesforce sales rep's job is to sell you on an idea and hope, rather than practical application, implementation, and realistic expectations of the egregiously cantankerous and universally overpriced CRM.
  • They do not vet, manage or hold accountable their 'implementation partners'. Again, the sales rep for Salesforce; their job is to sell you the platform, not what you they showed you the platform can do. There is extreme neglect in discussing the actual cost to get their CRM platform to do WHAT they have showcased to you. Not to mention the time it takes to get there. Not to mention the partners they refer to you are random. These 3rd party companies do ALL the work and make ALL the money on behalf of Salesforce, for themselves. You get stuck in contracts with mediocre service or lackluster results and there is NO recourse for you as the consumer against these 'partners'.
  • If I want to sell GM cars, GM has standards and minimums they require in order for me to represent their brand. If I do shady dealings, rip customers off or am just a terrible business to be in business with, GM would strip me of my dealership title for their brand. SalesForce does no such thing. I could start a company to implement salesforce, have you sign a contract and deliver a garbage product. If you go to SF to complain about that; "Our hands our tied" as I have been told.
  • Salesforce does not care about your user experience, they just want you to buy more. It is a Sales organization, not a software company. Again, they do not care about your business, the negative impact of their CRM rollout, or how terrible their 3rd party support partners are. They. Dont. Care. They just want your money.
  • SF is aware they are the biggest player on the block. They have all the cards. You, the consumer, as an individual business, have no power or say.
Kurt Johansen | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sprinklr Modern Care

  • I find it difficult to dive into analytics for each social post. The reporting tool gives me an overview of the channels but I would love to look at a breakdown of each post performance.
  • You currently can't add closed caption subtitles to videos uploaded through Sprinklr so this results in having to revert to the native platform.
  • I would love to be able to set up a newsfeed that includes posts from a number of our partner accounts, so I can keep up to date with what they're posting.

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

The biggest reason we renewed, and kept up with Sprinklr Modern Care is because it is an active community and there is customer buy-in already. They continue to update and improve the product, but more importantly, the customers are using it. It's easy to switch products when it's not an active component in your daily structure, but switching and migrating the data or providing alternatives becomes difficult when customers have grown accustomed to a specific experience. As long as they continue to improve the available features and the community stays active, renewed use will continue.

Usability

Salesforce

Salesforce 8.2
Based on 86 answers
I think Salesforce is going to be a fantastic resource once we get fully onboarded and trained and are using all the features we want in our company. The problem is that onboarding is not intuitive and is very labor-intensive. After you make the agreement to purchase and settle on a price, they come back and recommend spending thousands more to have someone onboard for you. It's a hidden fee that isn't part of the original negotiations. In our case, we couldn't afford that right off the bat so the onboarding process is slower than expected, but we will eventually get there.

I've spent year designing products so I'm a tough judge when it comes to other solutions. It's clear that Sprinklr Modern Care was designed for the average online consumer with a very user friendly interface. They have made improvements to the admin tools to make that area of the product easier to use as well.

Performance

Salesforce

Based on 36 answers
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 rate the overall support for Salesforce.com in 10 because they are accomodating, very responsive, timely, and handle issues or inquiries professionally.

I know the Sprinklr conference calls have been helpful, but sometimes submitting a ticket can be a little daunting. In the past, we've included information in screenshots that are then asked for by a member of the support staff. The turnaround time has been between 3 days, which isn't horrible.

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.

Basic setup took me less than 30 minutes. This includes initial configuration, putting in the initial content, and getting the look-and-feel customized. The domain routing took the normal lag time any other website or blogging service. The really important thing was to get the user accounts setup and begin seeding the system with content before a public launch.

Alternatives Considered

Salesforce

When evaluating a CRM solution for our company we had a fairly simple decision process. We had to decide to buy vs build an internal solution - which we found for the cost Salesforce would save from development / IT perspective and provide a more robust solution. The closest out of the box competitor we looked at was the Microsoft Dynamics CRM product -and again, we found Salesforce to be a more robust / cost effective solution.

Many tools are the same, but the one where I noticed the biggest difference was between Brandwatch and Sprinklr when it comes to social listening. Brand watch has a good and more affordable social listening platform, but it is not as easy to use and requires the client to code keywords versus have user-friendly logic that can be quickly applied to social listening queries.

Salesforce has never been able to answer a question I've had, but I've heard from colleagues that they respond quickly. Market leaders tend to be more professional when things go awry. For CRM systems, Salesforce is by far the most popular. I've used CRM systems before Salesforce, and they weren't even close. Salesforce has such a monopoly on the market that they consider us as users. Inextricably linked, the two are one.

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.

I believe it is the best customer relationship management system available. We use it for everything and have integrated other platforms to give customers/accounts a 360-degree view. According to Salesforce customer service, it is beneficial for tracking all information, and the reporting/dashboards are unique. It's where we keep track of every sale.

Return on Investment

Salesforce

  • Companies that either hire consulting expertise or have in-house experts will benefit the most. It can be a powerful tool. Manage it correctly and there will be great benefits.
  • Conversely, if companies don't implement Salesforce.com with a plan, there will be frustration and small if any ROI realized.

  • Improved self-support. Many customers are able to find answers to their questions without even posting to our community
  • Excellent peer support. Our customers excel at helping each other. We are lucky to have community members who are experts at our product and many of them are generous with their time and assist newcomers before our community managers are able to!
