  7. 7.  Ease of customisation and configurability  Moderately priced — £499 per user on-premises for GoldMine Enterprise — software for companies looking for on-premises SFA  Long history of support for SMEs  Large installed base for basic opportunity and contact management — Gartner estimates more than 1.5 million users  Limited references on GoldMine Enterprise Edition  Limited professional service or ESP experience implementing complex large-enterprise deployments
  8. 8.  Microsoft Outlook integration  Strong leverage of .NET and Microsoft technology assets (such as Biztalk) for clients committed to Microsoft, although these assets are sold separately  Continues to accelerate new customer growth and deployments  Lower license cost (Gartner estimate less than £400 per user, on average) alternative for large enterprises with on- premises requirements  Limited footprint focused on opportunity management,  Customers reported top-heavy professional service deployment teams from Microsoft  No BlackBerry support
  9. 9.  An innovative open-source CRM model and community that enables collaborative, customer-driven enhancements  Attractive price/business value ratio for all size organizations — that is, £150 per user on-premises professional edition and £200 user on- premises enterprise edition license costs; £20 per user and £50 per user per month for SaaS offerings  Ease of system configurability cited by multiple customers as an advantage  Customers cite the need for more flexibility in workflow — currently triggered primarily around save operation  SaaS user performance when accessing the system in Europe  Inconsistent professional services; some customers had initial poor experience, followed by a good experience after different resources were allocated  Lacks some functional components for performance management, such as sales configuration, incentive compensation and price
