Pros

Our company had never used a CRM before but it has been a great starting point that I know we can expand upon when the time is right. Fantastic business development tool.

JH

Jordan H.

As a very visual person, the ease and impact of the dashboard widgets are a great. Seeing your information in charts and graphs really help to monitor our marketing progress.

KK

Kayla K.

After sourcing out other CRM programs, Cosential fit best for us and the customization is great.

Pros

Great product to help you determine what types of work your doing and helping you see where your doing the best at and the worst at.

CD

Chris D.

Thunderbolt has allowed us to not only improve our scheduling and tracking - we now have a much better idea of our hit/miss ratios, which customers to prioritize, etc.

LW

Lance W.

The ease of use especially remotely on my I Phone or I Pad is, for me, the basis of Thunderbolt's power.

Mark B.

Cons

The mobile app is terrible; however, they claim to have a new one in production that should be rolled out soon.

MH

Matt H.

Lots of clicking to get where you need to go, and the inability to cross reference some items.

TL

Treasure L.

Two years in, as we are ready to deep-dive into more of the Cosential functionality we are being besieged by glitches that are impeding our use of the system, which is extremely frustrating.

CR

Carmen R.

Cons

Sometimes when you try to add a contact/or Project Type it does not show up on your drop down list.

RM

Ryan M.

We found limited options. Some of the big name sales softwares out there just feel as though they are geared towards large corporate firms and they stop at pipeline and sales tracking.

BH

Bryan H.

I have not had time to try out the scheduling and resource planning but if it is al usefull as the bid tracking i don't see how you can go wrong.
