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.

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.

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.

  • Support times are iffy. We've had slower replies and resolutions to issues since they acquired Sigstr and now support both products.
  • Display advertising generally has low ROI, in part due to "banner blindness". If you're not continuously developing engaging creatives, you're going to see very little return with this platform.
  • Their UI needs serious work. Some options are locked after you move to the next screen in their campaign wizard (nothing should ever be locked in draft) and unless they've recently changed it, you can't delete dead draft campaigns - just archive them.
  • There are a few serious discrepancies in the analytics when it comes to identifying which end companies have people who have viewed your ads (i.e. Microsoft has huge numbers because Azure is their product).

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

Usability

Salesforce

Salesforce 8.1
Based on 84 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.

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. We never had any issues with raising it or waiting too long until it is fixed. Nothing to worry about if we have something to raise it will always be smooth and hassle-free communication.

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

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

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.

Drift has banners available in their email tool, furthermore, we are able to mimic a Sigstr banner in HubSpot when we build emails by placing the banner image with a link in the bottom of an email, it's just a more manual process. I can't recommend any other solution over Sigstr, they own what they do and don't try to reach in their product marketing and I respect their product for that.

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.
