"We haven't had any issues with stability so far.""I'm not sure what the most valuable aspect of the solution is, but I can say that their finance and auditing systems are quite impressive. You can audit in different invoices right to procurement. It's all quite seamless.""Features they are integrating to the other services.""The most valuable feature is ease of use.""The product is pretty responsive.""The queue management of the solution is its most valuable aspect.""We like that the technology is very agile and flexible in the sense that there's a large partner ecosystem within Salesforce Platform. This enables us to choose from many different partners with different advantages, and all of it can be done in a plug-and-play kind of way.""The solution is very robust and easy to develop in."

Cons
"I would like to have integration with Google.""The solution offers upgrades at a slower pace. The solution needs to keep up with competitors.""They need an easy way of getting details and then adding to it and then being able to do it in a more simplified way""The marketing automation needs improvement.""Better flexibility in editing emails created from templates would be great, and being able to add hyperlinks in emails for scheduling meetings would allow us to automate more.""If you have resellers or distributors, you just need to figure out a way to set up the system in the backend. Since every company is different, it takes a little bit of time to figure that out.""The initial setup is rather complex.""Although the platform is already set up for you, there's a lot of customization that needs to be done, especially for any new component we start using. For whatever solution we wanted, we had to think for ourselves and design it all on our own. And, unfortunately, there were some components that were not really mature in the beginning, like Tableau for example."

More Salesforce Platform Cons »

"They should allow for more UI customization.""When you're developing database-type applications, there is no way to see the actual database tables. They call them forms, and I don't like that. Zoho should also provide better user guides."

Pricing and Cost Advice

It's really an okay price for what solutions are available and for how many features and what kind of functionality you get.""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."
