More GeneXus Pros →

"The standard sales and marketing tools that Salesforce provides on the platform are the most valuable.""What functions we don't get out of Salesforce, we typically receive from third-party applications that extend the capabilities. We integrate a lot of different products with Salesforce.""he solution has improved over the years and the inputting of opportunity information is done a lot better and the GUI is good. The ability to customize dashboards and other elements was useful, we were able to move things around, for example, the forecasts. Most of the cells and input places were set, but we can customize the view and what we were looking at, such as on a daily, or weekly basis.""The keyword search helps me in finding stuff quickly. So, I don't have to click around a lot.""It is a great platform. It's definitely an improvement from the GCP application that we were using previously.""The reporting tools are very solid.""The most valuable aspect of the solution is the unit coordination between sales and marketing when it comes to lead management.""Its stability, performance, and usability are most valuable."

"It would be helpful to have additional assisted processing with training."

More GeneXus Cons →

"I have found it takes an exceedingly long time to put opportunities or clients in the system. If I have an opportunity that I need to put in the system it could take approximately 10 minutes. This is a lot of time when you have multiple opportunities to put in. There are other tasks to do that are required by supervisors, such as forecasts. What I have done to save time is I did not input as much detail as I could have because I knew it was going to take me an hour to get five leads in.""Salesforce needs to be re-platformed, or re-architected, making it lighter.""The integration of Salesforce with other solutions could be improved.""Simplification is something it needs. Every time you get the engineers involved, they make things a little too complicated. It might be more beneficial to simplify everything for quick and easy reference.""The interface could be more user-friendly and offer more customization.""When we're documenting information such as notes, and so forth, if we were to go back to the same case all notes go missing.""The initial setup is rather complex.""I was using the nonprofit free version of Salesforcecalled Vtiger which is different from the main version. It has a lot less accessibility than others and a lot less flexibility. It was more difficult to adjust, but ultimately it was satisfactory. I believe they still have a long way to make it very satisfactory. It's good software and platform. However, Salesforce is an okay platform to utilize. Additionally, the reports need some improvement."
