Content Creation was innovative

Pros

The various abilities to create content in the enterprise platform was helpful.

Cons

The pricing became too high for our budget. But a bigger budget could really use this software to innovative approaches.

Modus: easy interactive showcases

Pros

I like how it is possible to put together a polished, interactive product showcase in a few minutes.

Cons

There is a bit of a learning curve. Some of the terminology is Modus specific.

Modus Review

As a first time user, I felt Modus was good to work with and user friendly.

Pros

Easy to navigate through the app
The ability to edit content

Cons

If you need to create identicle folders within sub-folders is very time consuming. It would be better if there was a function to select multiple sub-folders rather than copy and paste the folders.

One of the First Users of the AppDataRoom

Everyone in sales and marketing always has the latest materials available for their review, or to share with others. We have dramatically reduced our need for printed materials, which helps to offset the cost of the product.

Pros

From a user perspective: It has a very simple and intuitive interface for users. Content is easy to share with people outside of your organization. That fact that it is downloaded and sync'd locally means that you are not reliant on a good Internet connection when presenting content. From an Administrator perspective, it makes it very simple to ensure that all employees are accessing the most current version of the content. It's also easy to see who is using the product and who may need a little "nudge".

Cons

We use Modus with iPads, and iPads don't always render some Microsoft files very nicely. We usually convert PPT files > PDF files. But then when it comes to finding and updating the master PPT file, we struggle to locate it.

A powerful tool for connecting sales collateral and tools to the teams that need them

We've been solving the problem of "where do I find that" which wasted many hours of our company's knowledge centers who had created documentation of their useful knowledge but were still being contacted many times daily to answer that simple question: How do I find (this) in order to answer (that question). With Modus's organization databases, asset management tools and tags, search-ability, and full indexing of .pdf documents' internal wording, a simple search now returns our field teams all the resources they need for the questions posed to them.

Pros

I love that Modus software has flexibility in how the assets of your organization can be shared with others, helping to better control your IP if, like us, you work in a highly competitive field. You can send prospects a packet of information but then limit their ability to keep or share that with someone you don't want involved in the conversation.

Cons

Its ability to organize the assets into heirarchies and shared families of information is incredibly complex and has a lot of options - perhaps too many for me! Probably a good problem to have.

Great sharing capabilities

Overall I'm pleased. Would love to receive more information on the capabilities, updates and other product offerings.

Pros

This is a great platform to share documents, both internally and with our channel. Easy to use and configure to our needs.

Cons

I'm relatively new to Modus, so I do not have any "cons" at this point.

Modus Works

Overall, good experience. Just not the best fit for our company and what we were trying to accomplish. It is a good product though, I'm sure other businesses will benefit from it.

Pros

I like that it can bring our tradeshow leads straight from the badge scan into Salesforce. I also thought they had great customer service. Rep helped us a ton.

Cons

It never seemed to work exactly how we wanted it to the day of the show. Something always came up that made more work for us. The idea behind purchasing it was to save us time, but unfortunatley we always had to spend a lot of time troubleshooting what went wrong. We were never able to get it just right.

Modus: Convenient for Salespeople on the go

Pros

It is easy to learn and use especially for business people on the go, when there are documents that have recurring updates. Our employees can be assured they are retrieving and sharing the most current materials.

Cons

Overall security and salesforce integration has not been satisfactory for us. Additionally, thumbnails aren't always automatically generated which makes adding new documents a bit more time-consuming than when the auto-generated thumbnails are populated.

Great media manager software

Overall, Modus has been extremely helpful in enabling me to solve my business problem with their software platform.

Pros

The thing I like most about Modus' App Data Room is the ability to manage and deploy media from their cloud-based system to my devices.

Cons

There are some improvements to the media manager app that would be useful. Such as the ability to setup and manage kiosk configurations from the web. Additionally, the file management features are a little clumsy and don't support a "drag-and-drop" that I would expect/want.

We are not planning on using it again

We used Modus for three shows and none of them went as well as we had hoped. We had a lot of hope for this product because the idea of it seemed like it would make things easier for us but our decision was that it wasn't worth the trouble.

Pros

There isn't an obvious "PRO" that stands out for me.

Cons

Hard to use, lack of training and it's not very flexible to export info into SFDC.

There's an out of the box integration with SFDC, so exporting a file to SFDC shouldn't be necessary. Let us know if you'd like to see the integration.

Our Sales Enablement tool

We needed a single source to gather all our field marketing content so that our sales people can be autonomous and don't have to rely on us to get prepared for their business meetings. Modus Communicate allowed us to do just that.

Pros

As an admin, Modus Communicate is quite easy to customize, organize and upload all our marketing content in one place. We have marketing content in many languages, and I like the way Communicate handles the languages in a transparent manner for the end-user.
Our end-users (mainly sales people) use Communicate across various devices (smartphones, tablets and desktop). Finally, Communicate integrates with our existing systems such as Salesforce and HubSpot.

Cons

There's not much, but if I would have to give two improvements: the tracking could be improved, e.g. tracking more precisely the document views on the recipient side, rather than a simple 'open' tracking. The mobile apps would deserve a design refresh, although they work well (feature-wise).

Modus Review

The Modus team has been very easy and enjoyable to work with. They are friendly and willing to help you achieve your goals. If you want a capability that the app doesn't currently offer, they will figure out a way to make it possible.

Pros

I like that this software provides a comprehensive knowledge base to our sales people while they are out in the field. They can easily pull up a piece of content by searching for it or finding it in the app and send it in a follow up email to their customer. The email will automatically send when they are back on wifi and they receive an email verification back when their customer has opened the attached link. It is very useful that the app doesn't need wifi to run so sales people can use it while they are actually out on sales calls. It eliminates the need to carry around bulky catalogs or rely on an internet connection to view information.

Cons

There are only minor things I would alter about this software. I would change where if you viewed a piece of content and then went back to the previous page, you would be in the same spot on the page. Currently, it sends you to the top of the page you are on. Also the search function shows you pieces of content more than once in your search results if it is located in more than one spot in the app.

Exactly what we needed for our outside sales reps

I'm definitely more from the administration side so my review reflects the ease of using it from my end. But our sales reps love having the content available while out at a conference or meeting potential customers.

Pros

It's easy to categorize our media library. It's easy to update. I love being able to have one piece of media available in multiple places without duplication.

Cons

I don't really have anything bad to say about it. I know our team under-utilizes some of the functions.

Good Tool

We share content across our Sales team and Channel partners. He have some heavy users which says some see real value in helping build productive relationships that drive revenues.

Pros

Easy to use and makes it easy for our Sales team to share relevant content all from one spot.

Cons

It does take some dedication so it does not become a junk drawer of content.

Easy file storage system

We want to share files with our sales reps. This allows us to do so but we have to register each person and pay a large monthly fee for them to access the files.

Pros

It's a file storage system. It does the job. Being able to manage files from a computer make it easy. The computer interface is simple.

Cons

It seems way overpriced for what it is..

Appdataroom

We have worked directly with Modus to test out new feature and capabilities of their Appdataroom platform. We have found they are receptive to our requirements and quite responsive.

Pros

From an IT perspective, there is enough feature and capability here to quickly deploy content and collateral across multiple devices with some being abroad.

Admin panel is intuitive and easy to use.

Cons

Because the platform is easy to use, there is not a lot of customization available for content management. Everything is done through the web interface and would be ideal to have some sort of support for mass upload/updates. Their product roadmap does need a bit of work and modernization to bring it up the featureset compared to other competing platforms.

Modus Review

Pros

When everything works Modus is great. Unfortunately we've had several issues with linking this platform to Hubspot.

Cons

So many issues. We use Hubspot and have had nothing but problems getting Modus to comminucate properly with Hubspot. We haven't used the platform again since we've been told it's fixed, so hopefully everything is correct next time around.
