"The product is very fast and responsive. There's no lag time when you are on the platform."
"I find the forecasting the most valuable feature. It's valuable because there are two types of forecasting, customizable and collaborative forecasting."
"I have found Salesforce Sales Cloud to be stable."
"The type of customization that comes with Salesforce CRM gives me a lot of liberty and ease of access to add any information that I wish to add. For example, the name, email ID, designation, the name of the decision maker, when the client joined the company, and the amount of influence he will have on the product."
"I like that Salesforce is ERP agnostic. In the past and at different companies, I have implemented new or replacement ERPs. It's best in class. I like that it's a SaaS. I like that it can work on any device—any Windows, Android, or Apple device."
"The most valuable features of Salesforce Sales Cloud are ease of use. It is very simple for the sales team to use. You can integrate it with a lot of other systems."
"The solution can scale massively. I've been quite impressed."
"It is a good platform that shows consolidation of information for our customer base."
"Siebel is easy to configure and comes with various pre-built industry verticals, so it doesn't require much effort. If you want to roll out Siebel in telecom or manufacturing, they have the verticals."
"Siebel offers a high level of customization which has been valuable. The solution also offers the ability to model complex products."
"Siebel CRM's most beneficial aspects are the workflows. It has complete holistic workflows for a customer management system."
"The solution is scalable."
"It is quite robust and flexible. You can develop almost anything you want. You go into the tools, and you can do anything you want."
"The solution can be difficult to understand for customers of Salesforce."
"Salesforce Sales Cloud overall is too complex. There is too much functionality, it's hard for the user, at the beginning. It takes a lot of time to update the information."
"Sometimes they refresh the production environment, which can be a bit of a challenge."
"It could have a more user-friendly interface."
"The problem is the solution has gotten so big, it's very complex now. It's a bit difficult to figure out how to do certain actions."
"In the next release, I would like to see more integration."
"I don't like the way parent-child relationships work in transactions between records in Salesforce Sales Cloud. NetSuite is a little bit more user-friendly in that sense. Salesforce Sales Cloud requires that you build everything from scratch. I don't like that. It leaves a lot of thinking and solutions to the consultants and the process is more prone to errors."
"Sales Cloud could be improved with more training. In general, the training is very good, but you have to really seek out some good options in order to upskill yourself. Another thing, which could also be a benefit, is that Sales is very customizable. If you move from one organization to another, you can see your Salesforce as before, but their Sales Cloud may look completely different from what you're used to. It's not like Microsoft Excel or Trello, where the layout and all the functions are the same. Because it's so customizable, I feel like there is a bit of a learning curve when you inherit another Sales Cloud instance. To be honest, I think that's the beauty of Salesforce because you can customize it so much to fit your needs as a company. It follows your processes and use cases in order for you to get the most out of the system itself."
"The backend performance of Siebel could be improved as it is often slow. In addition, the Open UI is not that responsive."
"The problem with Siebel is that everything is customizable in it. It's probably over-engineered, which makes it difficult to use, and it makes it difficult for the users to get started with the system."
"Siebel is pricey compared to other CRM tools. That's the problem. Although it's a highly stable and functionally rich application, customers are not willing to pay that price for it. Customers can find CRM software that gives them similar functionality at a lower price. There are so many others on the market like Salesforce."
"The user interface, mobile application, and support could be improved."
"It is difficult to set up."
"Siebel CRM can improve as an ERP and for a few corporate business workloads."
