The service is very good, with many customizable options, and has a strong database to help us build our rules and point systems for the loyal program."

More Salesforce Marketing Cloud Pros →

"Our infrastructure is set up for an on-premises deployment of this solution and I am concerned that the online deployment that we are moving to will not perform as well as our current on-premises storage systems. It could cause some problems, such as latency delays.""In the planning area in order to calculate commissions the function could be improved. Currently, we are not using that functionality because it is very basic.""The initial setup is complex, it could be improved to be more simplified.""The licensing is expensive.""Oracle CRM can improve integration and performance.""The user interface and performance could be better.""The performance could be better.""The one thing that I hate about it is when you pay for services for a certain amount of time, the service ends just before it should be over. For example, I may pay for a month of service, but it will tell me the service is over before the month ends."

More Oracle CRM Cons →

"An additional feature needed would be better capacity for personalization.""This solution could be more user-friendly.""Marketing Cloud's forecasting could be improved.""Salesforce Marketing Cloud should be linked to an email ID, so the features after 15 days can update on the opportunity. You should not have to update them manually to the next step.""There could be easier tools to configure the product and to create landing pages to better handle large data sets.""The quality of support for this solution has been decreasing over time and the support team are sometimes more focused on closing tickets that resolving issues. Often the support team is not well trained or aware of the new features or products released by Salesforce.""The processing speed, the way information displays, and scrolling options can be improved.""The data extension tools are not very user-friendly."
