"Immediately increased productivity and adoption"

What do you like best?

GridBuddy is super easy to use - very intuitive. It eases the burden of data entry. Because of that, our users actually keep the data current, which helps our overall analytics and forecasting.

What do you dislike?

Due to the nature of displaying several datapoints within the same grid, the layout can sometime yield wasted space. But there are ways to hide/display additional items to help minimize wasted space.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Users are not likely to find and add/correct data unless it is very easy for them. GridBuddy allows users to easily fix any missing/incorrect data with minimal clicks. Our data quality has increased since using GridBuddy.

"A good solution for small and medium businesses"

What do you like best?

The best part is the speed at which it creates the reports. The app fetches data from various databases and gives us the right data to work with.

Easy customization is interesting as well. It allows you to make changes to the workflow to match the business processes that your business use.

What do you dislike?

I am not very happy with the User Interface. It sometimes becomes difficult to go through number of data you are looking at times. App slows down as well. But this is not something to worry about if you are not surrounded by too much of data.

I would prefer it for sales team and order management teams.

Recommendations to others considering the product

AppBuddy is an interesting application if you have are an SME or want to manage a sales unit. If you have multiple teams, you can use this to manage one of the teams or each team can use this individually so that the load is distributed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have implemented it for the sales team where there are a lot of people involved in the conversation with a client. This helps each participant to know what other had talked about and can discuss the upcoming phases of a project. It also helped our project manager to keep an eye on the team and save time in identifying issues if any.

AppBuddy's use as lead management platform is cool as well. Specially when we have a large lead generation teams. What best I found is the removal of duplicate leads and resource wise reports. Even if nothing else, you can use these feature for sure.

"GridBuddy is a very useful app that meets the needs of our clients."

What do you like best?

I like how GridBuddy provides the ability to view & mass edit multiple children in the same grid as the parent. With both the flat view and hierarchical view as options, the grid can be configured to best meet users' needs. For instance, if a user is most familiar with a tabular Excel view, the flat view can be very helpful. The tabbed view is also a great way to organize data. It provides an easy to navigate view of data with different filters. By embedding grids on a parent record, it also enables users to edit child objects on the same page. This decreases the number of clicks needed to achieve a task.

What do you dislike?

In our GridBuddy implementations, some of the grids load slowly, which has been raised by end users. Since data is not auto saved in the grid, there is the potential that data is lost if the page is accidentally refreshed. It would be useful to have an auto-save or restore option.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used AppBuddy to provide a grid on a parent record to create multiple line items at once. This is meant to simulate lines in Excel as a user is testing a product. The quality control items are tracked and easily updated in the grid.

"Great Tool For Delivering Quick Wins"

What do you like best?

easy to deploy, doesn't require being a developer to deliver functionality that is HUGELY helpful for Salesforce users; this has been one of the easiest ways to help my users work smarter in Salesforce

What do you dislike?

seems like some of their upgrades only partially test compatibility with new standard Salesforce features (eg: when the standard time field was deployed by Salesforce 2 releases ago, the grid doesn't function with a default time set); wish they made it easier to deploy from sandbox to production (using metadata instead of having to export and load in dataloader.... it is so clunky!)

Recommendations to others considering the product

this is a really easy to use tool -- for us, we chose over competitors because the UI aligned with what our business wanted; support can be a little slow sometimes. also it's not uncommon for them to not realize that you've already tried what they say is a "solution".

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

managing multiple quote line items from within the quote screen instead of having to click into "edit all", easily updating records en masse, dynamic lists that you can easily switch between; this has hugely helped with a team that really didn't want to use salesforce at all by making it as easy as a spreadsheet with more features

"AppBuddy Review"

What do you like best?

AppBuddy most importantly saves time and avoids clicks that can be costly. It Also provides a large number of updates via Salesforce for sales opportunities.

What do you dislike?

Being able to customize is key and thats not Appbuddy's strongest piece. App is also slow and needs to improve its User Interface.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're a small or large enterprise business you'll be able to use this because it adapts well at scale. It's fairly easy to use compared to other products, and will be a big time saver for managing lead generations from start to finish. As mentioned, since AB is great for large companies, you can really have the individuals on your team distribute the load evenly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The sales team is going to be mostly impacted by this because of the vast amount of conversations being conversed. Also, with lead generation being a key component, you can remove multiple leads that are the same, which in the end saves a ton of frustration and time.

"Grid Buddy"

What do you like best?

Grid Buddy makes it easy for us to take care of our forecasting and management of our opportunities. When our reps need to update their funnel, it is super easy to update all opportunities in one location. No need to open a bunch of tabs or pages within Salesforce.com. It is simple to do and our sales reps are very easily adapted to it. This will increase a lot of productivity.

What do you dislike?

Some of the customization was more difficult than i was communicated about. But that was easily overcome.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great tool for reps to use - super easy to use to update opportunities. This will make a huge difference in our funnel management.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our salesreps forecasts and funnels were always out of date and opportunities were often ignored even when they were past their close date. This will be very help ful for us.

"User Experience"

What do you like best?

The best part about Gridbuddy is the ease of use and the way the information is presented by reducing the number of clicks and screens.

What do you dislike?

Gridbuddy is generally used in Salesforce and both of them have there own design style, I know Gridbuddy has provided the new feature to match the style with lightning design system, but still, there are many components which look different, making the screens look different from the salesforce style.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefit of giving information in a single screen.

Ease of control

Well-thought enterprise solution

"Took a complicated ask that would have required months of custom dev work and solved it in weeks"

What do you like best?

I like the simple UI of selecting/deselecting fields. Step 2 of the Grid Wizard is extremely easy and straightforward to use. I like how I you can visualize related fields and lookups very easily.

What do you dislike?

Not having the ability to arrange the parent and child fields in a custom order. Child records either come before or after parent fields. You can’t intermix them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Migrating the process of keeping track of data in Google docs into Salesforce and trying to maintain the look, feel and functionality of a Google doc.

"Appbuddy is a honest source for app review!"

What do you like best?

I really enjoy the way the apps are described to you and it really feels the reviews are not biased whatsoever. There are a wide variety of apps that gives you the choice to decide between one and another easily without doing so manually yourself. The videos are also extremely helpful!

What do you dislike?

The only thing I dislike is that the apps are not always reviewed on the same platform I have decided to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are going to use appbuddy don't go in expecting to hear what you want! many times I will read the product description and then get appbuddy's opinion and it floors me! If you're going to use it go in unbiased and ready to learn!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am more efficient in time management due to being able to trust appbuddy to tell me the truth
