First, I thought that Intercom was a way to communicate with your users. Now I'm an Intercom fanatic that believes that Intercom can help SaaS businesses in every stage of the buying cycle. From converting website visitors to retaining users, it can all be achieved with one amazing platform: Intercom!

Pros :

  • The easy way that on-boarding flow can be set up based on every single interaction that a user had or didn't have with your app.

Cons :

  • Not really a con, but I think that Intercom can improve even further by providing more reporting functionalities that a SaaS business has to on.
  • All data reported in their platform, so this can surely be used to build such a reporting engine. That would make Intercom a CRM designed for SaaS businesses.

I think it's fair to state that if you are a startup, you have to move along to find another software to manage your Sales process. Simply because this a huge system, that has a lot of experience built into, big community (but not so organized and the responses from Salesforce is what you'd expect from a dinosaur) and a huge marketplace to look for apps. If you are a startup, you need something easy to maintain, something that you can setup and start using it right then and there. None of this is found in Salesforce. But it is one of the most flexible systems I have every known. If you have money to pay for the Enterprise Edition. We have the Pro Edition and meets our needs half way. That's the way it works that version, almost anything you need to do has a sign on it that says "If you want this, move to EE.". Very frustrating, but if you have a bit of imagination, you can find a way to work around those problems and use most of it.

Pros :

They liberated the workflows for Contracts, a bit limited for our needs, but serves the purpose of verification and authorization of contracts. The Reports are the most flexible feature they have, along with the custom fields. Dashboards are a great way to communicate metrics and create operational boards. Not really the system, but they have a huge marketplace to look for apps, with the ability to extend greatly the features of SF.

Cons :

I have experience with Pro Edition. So:

  • If you want full workflows, buy the Enterprise Edition.
  • If you want triggers, but the EE - etc. Forecast doesn't work because it lacks of the ability to configure the right permissions. Their UI/UX sucks. Dashboards only have the ability to hold 20 components.
  • If you want several metrics and need to use the metric component you can easily reach that limit, Charts in Reports are very limited in configuration and charts types.

What do you like best?Insights on who is utilizing our app and providing more information from them via social media, etc. What do you dislike?They don't provide enough reporting. They are sitting on a treasure trove of data that I can't tap into.

I've used this app primarily while conducting marketing efforts. It has been particularly valuable to me as I previously had to contact one of my analysts in the office to provide information on upcoming meetings/contacts. Now, I am able to easily pull the data and log info myself - cutting out the middleman.
