Beyond Salesforce Integration Comparison: Riva and Cirrus Insight 

If you’re looking for a solution that brings more than just Salesforce integration, this comparison between Riva and Cirrus Insight is for you. Where Cirrus Insight is an all-in-one sales productivity platform aimed at automating simple data capture and sales processes, Riva is the revenue data operations platform that provides continuous customer intelligence and restores trust in revenue and customer data, especially in complex enterprise environments in regulated industries. Read on—and learn which one will fulfill your needs. 

Capture, Curate, and Share Data When and Where It Matters – Even in Regulated Industries 

Riva ensures that data gathered in CRM is automatically available to users working in email, calendar, task, and contact platforms—and vice versa, thanks to its near real-time bi-directional sync. Riva’s fully customizable Insight sidebar delivers access to current, comprehensive customer histories in the context that matters to end users. In contrast, Cirrus Insight is limited by its longer sync cycles, restricted data rules and filters, and lack of granular admin sync configurations. Overall, Cirrus Insight falls short in complex enterprise environments when proving its security expertise. It works best for simpler environments and data capture requirements. In addition, Cirrus Insight only integrates with Salesforce whereas Riva supports all major CRM systems. 

Automation + Human Intelligence = Continuous Intelligence 

Automation alone won’t be able to handle the intricate and complex sales journeys of high lifetime value clients – much less the never-ending data updates and refresh cycles that go on across the organization. By bringing automation and human intelligence together, Riva develops a continuous data refinement process to deliver a reliable view of the organization’s relationships, tailored for scale and complexity. Cirrus Insight delivers automation that best applies to routinized sales processes with easily replicable customer relationships, where techniques like mass emailing are most effective.

Revenue Data Solutions Vs. Sales Acceleration: What Are You Trying to Achieve? 

If you’re set on finding a solution to speed, streamline, and scale your sales pipeline, a sales acceleration software like Cirrus Insight may be for you. Of course, for these solutions to be successful, they require trustworthy data which is not the primary focus of their offering. They work under the assumption that the data they are syncing is reliable and easy to route, which may or may not be the case. Riva’s focus is on getting the right data to the right people in the right place. Riva is the missing piece to your tech stack if you want to align your platforms, people, and processes and deliver a better, consistent customer experience.
