  • Easy to install and use.
  • Integrates well with Salesforce and can be accessed from within Salesforce.
  • Specific changes to records or metadata can easily be identified and restored.
  • Thus far, Spanning has completely fulfilled all of our backup needs, and we are completely satisfied.
  • While we haven't needed technical support yet, we were told that this is conducted via email rather than via phone.
We are a small organization, so Spanning's pricing was particularly attractive (it is priced on a per-user basis and has no minimum). We view a backup application like Spanning as absolutely critical as we have spent dozens of hours constructing a custom framework and populating data. Spanning provides us this comfort.

We currently use Spanning Backup for sales force as an interface tool. We use the backup scheduling tool regularly. It gives us confidence that we will not lose data every day and it is a big relief. I also like the backup and restore features, it's super easy to do and after a few clicks, it's completed.
  • Use the backup scheduling tool regularly to book up data
  • Using it to back up data on leads and opportunities.
  • Helps with controlling or limiting API consumptions
  • It is a bit expensive, we are a large company so it adds up quickly
  • Sometimes takes longer than I'd like with data backing up and restoration
  • Takes a while for me in terms of learning curve
We had previously had issues with server crashes and losing data. Now we have peace of mind, with Spanning Backup it has allowed me to have peace of mind that our data is backed up regularly every day. The UI is also pretty simple to use (once I learned it) and the restoration tool is very simple.

Using it for Salesforce for back up and storage solution which is integrated directly with Salesforce which is great. We use it for backing up and recovering data loss. IT's great with the automated secure point backups. It also allows administrators to get data back fast and continue to do their job and get back to task.
  • For my team, our master accounts and opportunities were corrupted, back up was recovered from this data which was a huge lifesaver.
  • Using it for secure data logs.
  • We routinely use it for Backup scheduling which has also been great.
  • The price is a bit expensive, to be honest. We have many users so it adds up quickly.
  • Uses a technology that will be later owned by Dell.
The need for storage is real. Our company is a global company and we have many folks on Salesforce inputting data every day. We are saving a lot of money by using back up and schedule routinely rather than integration of an external storage space which can be extremely expensive and time-consuming to integrate.
