There are an incredible number of CRM Apps out there. I have looked at several and wanted to mention Pipedrive as a great option for companies looking to focus on sales. It does a great job at pipeline management – with a nimble sales ready focus and good integrations using Zapier.
Companies like it because:
1. The visual pipeline is powerful. The pipeline view is fantastic- visual drag and drop pipeline
2. Sales always needs an orchestrated next step. You can easily set that up and when an action is completed, it prompts you for the next step.
3. Managing contacts and companies is always a difficult challenge. the contact and company data management and synchronization is easy and tailored.
4. You need to track pipeline health and hygiene performance to meet goals. You can set up pipeline velocity metrics and track performance
5. Most CRMs are so cumbersome, they don’t get used. Pipedrive is built for the sales person.
6. If you are an Apps user, this is a no brainer. Pipedrive syncs with Google Apps.
7. Not expensive.
