It's definitely an improvement from the GCP application that we were using previously.""The reporting capabilities are pretty user-friendly.""The activities, opportunities, follow-up of the opportunities, and business tracking are valuable features.

Cons
"The initial setup is rather complex.""The solution is a bit expensive.""Its documentation and price should be better.""The reporting needs improvement and the dashboard could have more components added.""They should provide access to data quality tips and tricks to make it better.""Reporting could be better. Reporting is Excel-based, and it has sucked since the inception of the company. That's why I was excited about the fact of them bringing MuleSoft into the fold and Tableau.""It would be better if they can add more from the pricing and functionality perspective. It is very expensive. I would be more than happy if they drop the prices. From the licensing perspective, if they can add more functionality, I would be more than happy.""When it switched to lightning, it threw me for a loop. When they changed the look and feel, I had a hard time finding things and doing what I used to do."

More Salesforce Platform Cons →

"My impression of the stability is that it is not good. Almost every month there is something new and that makes us nervous about delivery.""Usability is a challenge most of the time and not being able to get all of the information.""We need to connect our ERP solution via the VPN. We need to make sure our ERP solutions aren't exposed to the outside world. Our teams really struggle with this.""The main problem is that there aren't any easy migrations from SAP PO to SAP CPI, so from process orchestration to cloud platform integration.""They are still developing this product. It does not really have 100% of the necessary features available to properly service business clients""I'd like to see more local integration.""In the next release, I would like to see improvements with the price and the licensing.""The solution requires more flexibility overall."

Pricing and Cost Advice

  • "The solution is a bit expensive."
  • "It is expensive. Licensing is on an annual basis."
  • "It is quite expensive. Its developers come at a premium cost, which makes it expensive."
  • "It is expensive."
  • "I have heard that it is fairly priced. It offers ROI."
  • "It is very expensive. Its licensing is on a monthly basis."
  • "It is expensive."

  • "SAP's pricing is usually high compared to the competition. But this is also justified because they hold their products and services to quite high standards."
  • "The pricing can be negotiated."
  • "The cost when it comes to monitoring can be difficult."
