I am a legacy Hubspot user and I regularly evaluate and test new and popular SEO tools, such as Moz, seoClarity, GinzaMetrics, etc. ( a wide range of tools of different complexity and price range). Even though no software is perfect (including BrightEdge), I can confidently say that so far it's been the most effective SEO tool I've seen and also the easiest to use. It takes data and translates it into actionable recommendations (the key difference here) that would normally take days to generate. It's a great tool for companies of all sizes but smaller teams with challenging SEO goals may find it most helpful because it's a huge time saver and productivity booster.
As far as I am concerned, I would definitely renew but BrightEdge also comes with a price tag that is not possible for some companies or budgets. The price can definitely be a deal breaker in cases when a company simply doesn't have a big budget allocated for SEO efforts or software purchases.
I think that BrightEdge is a great tool for an experienced SEO professional. It may be somewhat overwhelming to a beginner but in experienced hands it's gold. It has great collaboration functionality to engage less experienced team members and delegate work load.
