  • Awesome integration with CRM/SFDC.
  • Support is US-based, free with subscription, and very helpful.
  • Best workflow capability (drag and drop) I've seen in any comparable product.
  • Custom templates are available for purchase and are great for branding.
  • Easy to use landing pages.
  • Some bugs when using on a Mac.
  • Turnover of support team - since acquisition by SalesEngine the Manticore team has changed quite a bit.
  • Daily reports aren't as robust as some solutions - hard to get good company info on anonymous visits.
Increasing your contact limit can be very costly, so I would go in with a good grasp on where you'll be in a year or two, minimum, and try to plan ahead so that you're not trying to justify budget later on.

All the reasons listed above and more was why we selected a new marketing automation platform. We migrated over to Marketo.

  • Automating the marketing process
  • Allows us to be flexible with our campaigns and emails
  • Provides a repository of support/how-to documents
  • Technical/customer support
  • Overall compatibility with different internet browsers
  • Email/template designer
We used the Manticore Marketing Automation solution for almost/just over 2 years, and initially, it was a great solution. Everything just seemed to work. When Manticore Technology, Inc. and Sales Engine International merged on May 31st of 2012, the overall product quality began to decline.

As browsers and other programs (like our CRM environment) went through updates and new releases, Manticore just didn't keep up. Parts of the program became incompatible with certain browsers, forcing us to change where and how we logged into the back-end of the system. It was a silly workaround, but not the end of the world. When we learned that other client-facing portions didn't work with certain browsers, we brought it to their attention, and were told that we needed to find some way to work with it, and that the changes to the system were not possible. We ended up having to change our 200+ landing pages/forms, and could no longer have the State/Province field as a required field for registrations. That is just one example of our experience, and there have been others that are just as troublesome.
