  • The customer support is second to none
  • I'd like to see more profiles included particularly for consultants and advisors
Very handy for keeping a corporate repository and history of conversations, presentations and analyst observations. We are a global company with five AR practitioners so we need to have a single platform to maintain this history. I also like the reporting feature which is very useful in generating a consolidated view, by topic, of interactions and perceptions. The Briefing Books are a great tool as an executive background document. We haven't used the AR Event Planning feature so I can't comment on this. I also like the recent Influencer Score feature...

If you have an AR program across the globe and want to track all interactions you have with them, this tool is right for you. As you can imagine the tool is only as good as the data you put in, so you do have to make it part of your work day to input the data. Say a team member leaves and you have to jump in to cover for them, you are able to see all the interactions they have had with analysts.

With a distributed team of 8 working on 3 continents, ARchitect helps keep us on the same page. We can run reports against all aspects of our program. NOTE: ARchitect is dependent on users entering their data. What comes out is only as good as what goes in. We established KPIs to ensure that team members are motivated to enter their activities into ARchitect.
