I was subscribed to Silktide Prospect back when it was still called Haystack. It was a great tool then to quickly audit small businesses' digital presence. I liked specifically how smooth the entire platform worked.
What do you dislike?
It's a tool you use for specific need. The reports/audits are powerful, but are only surface-level information. If you want more powerful reports, more insightful audits, then better look elsewhere. Sitebeam, which Silktide also created, would be best for that.

Consider it if you're looking for a tool you can use to qualify leads, present to leads, and prove expertise. Best partnered with your own sheet that calculates ROI for digital marketing
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Presentation to sales, quickly providing value to business owners. It's great to pull out a laptop or ipad then then and there audit the site of your prospect and then offer them the solution.
Thanks for the review - we'd love to hear how we could make a 4 star review into a 5 star review.
If it helps, Prospect is designed to show a summary analysis of a website - for the purpose of business engagement - whereas Sitebeam (which is being replaced by Insites by the end of 2018) is designed to carry out a more detailed analysis, mainly for quality assurance purposes - the idea being you can use it to check the quality of the service you offer afterwards.
