"Great website use"

What do you like best?

It was a very integration into my blog website to manage my followers.

What do you dislike?

Starting up I had a hard time understanding what to do.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It was a great user experience in the end for my followers and customers. I wrote blogs concerning religious matters and used it to fundraise for different projects.

It was a great way to keep their data safe and still be able to have a centralized location for me to access that data for specific campaigns.

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

Follower management and ability to connect with my followers easily. They could manage their content and their subscription to my site.

"A cloud based access management solution to save you time"

What do you like best?

Janrain has several solutions, but in general the idea is to provide a tool for customer identity management.

The fact that they allow to authenticate from all the major social networks and email services and that allow you as a developer to capture relevant data to perform the authentication is a major plus.

You can allow any new or existing user from your website to authenticate from a social network like Facebook, Twitter, or even GMail is great because how many of us has forgotten a password to a website, but you will always have your email or social network opened.

Not only that but the metrics that it shows are very useful, and those allow you to take decisions.

What do you dislike?

Regarding the customer data feature, the profile data storage you would expect to be more flexible but it isn't. That's one thing that I don't like but it doesn't make it a bad tool after all since it has lot's of benefits.

There's also the fact that the idea is to develop less than having custom apps for each social network, but in the end, for providers like Facebook, Twitter, GMail, you have to create a basic app on their side and know how to pass that data to Janrain, but isn't that much extra work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You have to have strong skills on scalability, web integration and some knowledge on how to create basic social media apps if you want to integrate with some of those.

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

I have used it a couple of times with large clients that require to allow new or existing users to authenticate in a website with a social network button or with a mail provider button.

You can either have one custom app for each social network or email provider, or have a cloud based solution that supports most of them.

What Customer Identity and Access Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Great tool to remove managing peoples logins"

What do you like best?

Great and easy tool to enable your users to log into your site, without you having to mess around with managing an enrolment process.

Really easy and quick to setup.

What do you dislike?

Pricing get steep when you start needing a lot of logins per year, Also some business to business users may not like to use a personal account to login - however Linkedin is available.

Great for ad-hoc communication with your customers. We are trailing using for some partners.

Recommendations to others considering the product

speak to your existing target market to see if they buy into the concept
