SAP Sales Cloud

You always have to consider that this is a rather monolitic product. The Setup is overcomplicated and I dont think that it is well suited for smaller environments. We are able to integrate in basically any scenario but this also comes with a price. The ODATA Interface is not so well documented and basically you have to pay somebody every time you plan on changing something. SAP Support is basically useless because they always work to close a ticket and not to resolve it in the customers interest.

Zendesk Sell

Zendesk sell is best for organizations that want a clean and simple, yet powerfully effective CRM tool. It's intuitive, extremely user-friendly, supplies lots of video tutorials and access to the California team for FAQ's, and has all the features other, more complicated, expensive CRM's have. Great for institutions that have a need to tailor their database to fit your needs; and track sales, tasks, and pipeline projects in graphic form. It's affordable and has a great app for mobile phones that allows access to contacts, notes, tasks, and a workable platform while on the go in real time. It's simple to teach new users how to navigate and utilize. Adding or deleting users is simple, and access to the CRM information can be limited/private or made public for the entire team to access. Not as costly as some of the competing products, so if you are on a tight budget this may be the tool for you.

Pros

SAP Sales Cloud

  • Real-time Analysis lets you analyze every piece of information in the system and visualize it in a contextualized business case to make faster and better decisions.
  • 360-Degree Customer View gives you a clear picture of the situation of the customer and how you as a sales rep are able to assist them individually.
  • Full mobile access allows the sales reps to work remotely from a tablet or smartphone - even if there is no mobile connection available.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zendesk Sell

  • My favorite piece is the Tasks connected to the Clients OR the Deals themselves that keep the process moving with the right steps, and helps our team from doubling our work, or missing a piece that is crucial for the completion of the sale.
  • The email integration helps to keep all things housed in one place also, so that you're not bouncing back and forth in multiple platforms to stay on top of the orders.
  • Customizations are a HUGE part of why we use Base CRM right now. We can make sure we are recording all of the right information, and not wasting time by having to fill in or skip over content that doesn't apply to our business model.
  • I also like the ability to tied Deals to multiple people, especially as Referrals come across, so we don't forget how we got in touch with different clients.

Cons

SAP Sales Cloud

  • Reporting is lacking. It doesn't always keep accurate record of activities, and doesn't provide much value add vs. internal reporting of the same metrics.
  • No rewards program, or features other than simply points that might provide more value to the user community you are trying to create.
Andy Salo | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zendesk Sell

  • There was no ability to add prospects from a company domain or email to auto-fill any data.
  • You had to type in all of the data you gathered about that prospect.
  • The default only gave you two phone numbers for the company, too few.

In terms of overall usability, SAP Sales Cloud can initially be a hectic task to get acquainted with the platform but the dashboard is quite intuitive and easy to navigate. Although, there should be more training modules that can help new employees to get on board with the platform easily.

I received about two hours worth of training on Zendesk Sell (formerly Base CRM). I will say it's a clean look and the ability to change views is extremely helpful. I do wish there were other features that allowed the views to be more simplistic. Some views can be overwhelming to look at. Nevertheless with the minimum training, I am still able to navigate through Zendesk Sell (formerly Base CRM) successfully due to the ease of usability.

I'm rating it a 7 right now but, a year ago, it would have been 10. Customer service had deteriorated since they moved to SAP umbrella. No information about acquisition/transition. Our CSM, RSM all are no longer a part of this new group and support queries take weeks to close

Due to the ease of the product, I have not had the chance to reach out to support yet. I’ve had no reason. The resources provided to clients are extremely helpful and detailed. So far my questions have been pretty basic and I generally just ask my colleague or teammate. They're able to assist with the answer.

This product has a great backing of users, but needs more options direct from Base CRM on all operations of the software. YouTube videos do a great job of helping implement, and the back end support is a great help as well. The CRM is a great free option, and should be treated as such.

Alternatives Considered

SAP Sales Cloud

The reason for be a part of sap team is because of my client. I was working for SAP company so I got more exposure on sap sales cloud but if compare it with Salesforce CPQ I would say sap is quiet new and it will need more features as other cloud tool already has but major part is it is easy to understand.
Sunny Sethi | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zendesk Sell

Simpler than most CRMs, which can be good if your sales team is not very tech savvy. We switched to HubSpot which provides a lot more value than Base did, but it isn't right for everyone. HubSpot is focused on capturing in-bound leads and has its own flaws and limitations, but overall it's a better fit for our needs.

The biggest plus point with SAP Sales cloud is that it is accessible irrespective of the geography and devices and other such complexities. One can monitor their processes from anywhere which makes it ideal for large organizations that are looking for innovative on cloud solutions.It certainly saves major costs and results in smooth transfer of information which gives agility to the entire process.

Return on Investment

SAP Sales Cloud

  • Fast user adoption due to easy of use web based user interface compared to traditional SAP transaction codes.
  • Streamlining of business processing due to consolidation of functionality within SAP Sales Cloud screens.
  • Lower cost of integration to SAP ERP ECC or S/4HANA using prebuilt seamless connectors.

Zendesk Sell

  • Using Base has allowed us to double the number of active sales and partner engagements that we can keep track of and make progress on.
  • This has led to us being able to follow up on many smaller deals that were falling through the cracks.
