Overall Satisfaction with Brainshark

Brainshark was used across the sales and marketing departments at my past company, primarily focused on sharing content from the inside sales team. All sales team members had access to the system and were encouraged to use it for sharing decks and information with clients and prospects.
  • Tracking when presentations are viewed - this is great as you can get alerted immediately that someone has begun watching or finished watching the deck you sent them, allowing you to follow up with them and find out what they thought of the presentation.
  • Providing a secure portal for sharing confidential presentation information - you can set it up so that various privacy filters are on your decks, including needing a password you provide in a separate email
  • It is difficult to edit content within the system, it would be great if they added PowerPoint editor within the portal
  • Some of the UI could be improved, but for the most part I think it's a great and easy-to-use system
  • Increased efficiency for sales
  • Better lead follow-up
  • Dropbox,Box
More tracking available, better user interface, privacy controls, ability to record voice to presentation decks.
The only issue was getting sales to adopt the system. User adoption is key to making this system work.
It is well suited for anyone with a medium to large-size sales team. We had about 25 sales resources using the system. In my new role where I only work with 5 sales people, I'm not sure that it would make as much sense. But the read-receipts/alerts of viewing are still very helpful regardless of your team's size.
