I reviewed oodles and oodles of cloud-based CRM tools (Insightly, Salesforce, Sugar, etc) looking for a features that would allow me to easily build a customer (and contact) management system that would allow our team to track data related to distribution of our publication, subscriptions and renewals, writer and photographer contacts and correspondence, plus advertising (and renewal) sales. I test drove at least a half-dozen other products -- none of which were built in a way that accommodated other data management needs in a simple, easy to use way like Pipeline. There are other systems out there for publishers, but most cost in the ballpark of 100-150 per month to use. Pipeline is the only product I'd recommend to other small publishers -- and for two of us on staff, it's a life-save. If you're using six excel spreadsheets to track information and punting it back and forth between multiple contributors -- for heaven's sake. Stop. Do a trial. It'll speak for itself. (Oh, and did I mention the awesome mobile app? There's a mobile app. Business contacts anywhere on the go).
Pros: Is EVERYTHING a valid response?
Cons: I wish I'd found Pipeline from Day One of my magazine publishing business.
Ease of use
Value for money
After reviewing MANY other CRM solutions, I made the decision to implement Pipeline Deals. For our simple sales cycle, it's absolutely perfect. We have an in-house production management product, so this is really only needed for the front end of the sales cycle and does the job to perfection. It helps me stay on track with current deals and neglected customers, plus they don't require an implementation up-front cost like other solutions.
Pros: Hesitant towards a solution that didn't offer integrated email, but I've been swayed by how easy it was to BCC inbound and outbound email from my PIM. Simple and instantly useful - Just right and to the point of focusing on progressing deals.
Cons: Email is not integrated, but only a few these days allow the user to view email within the CRM solution, so not a big deal. Haven't found any other detracting features yet!
For the price it does what we need it to do. Very satisfied with software and support
On the surface there’s a lot to like about PipelineDeals. Despite some wasted space and curious design choices, the UI is generally clean and straightforward, and manages not to be overwhelming, an achievement in its own right. We like that. We also like the “home” tab, which provides an “at a glance” view of your daily agenda, latest activities, deals by stage, and other general information. It’s an instantly usable product. Dig in a little deeper and the picture gets more complex. PipelineDeals organizes people and companies into three main categories: “leads,” “deals,” and “contacts.” Leads are unqualified contacts that need some sales work: deals are concrete revenue opportunities to be won or lost: contacts are just about everyone else, and can be associated with deals.
Pros: At $15/user/mo it’s an attractive choice deserving of a good look
Cons: We’re not entirely sold on this trifurcation of contacts. It’s an old-school approach aimed at pushing contacts through an automated pipeline and it suffers from being too linear. It’s a sales automation tool, nothing more, nothing less
This product has all the basics of a good CRM solution, contact management, deals management, reprots....It is simple to use which guarantees a good adoption from the sales and marketing team. This has been our main issue with the tool we used previously
Pros: easy to use = good acceptance from the sales team funnel evolution reports simple dashboard single view of all contacts per company per deal task management (to do lists) feature integration with Outlook and Highrise
Cons: may not have the bells and whistles of higher end products but that makes it easier to use. Not sure it is con actually.
I tried out Salesforce, Highrise and several other CRM apps before going with Pipeline Deals. I feel like CRM packages like Salesforce have way too much stuff/junk and it feels way over built, on the other hand packages like Highrise have virtually no customization and lacks essential features. I am a creative person not a salesperson and I've easily been able to adapt their software to my sales needs. The best part is I can create sales templates to remind me to follow-up and track which of my sales leads have the best return on investment. Since I've started using their software I've been able to keep track of my opportunities and close more deals. I also forward my e-mails to Pipeline Deals, this way I can keep track of all the communication going out or coming in for deal. I can also keep track of which people are associated with the deal. If someone calls me and I haven't spoken to them in six months I can quickly find out what we were talking about.
Pros: - Adding custom fields is a snap. - I like the social networking features associated with my contacts - The lead and deal templates save me a lot of time keeping track of who I should contact follow-up on my sales. - Customizable interface.
Cons: I would like the Pipeline Deals team to create a project management software as well. Currently I use the Tasks and Events to-dos in the Deals tab to track project management items, it works great for me.
