We started on was great for a very small sales team because it was very email driven, which was good for us. But it lacked management reporting, analytics and workflow features. Salesforce has every feature under the sun. The UI is incredibly clunky, but we’re making do.

I like I used to be a sales director at Zendesk for 5 years where I used Salesforce. I didn't want to use Salesforce when I started my own company. They give us what Salesforce is giving us but in a much more cleaner, simpler, more modern and easier to use package. Salesforce is infinitely more complex and hard to administer. At a small company we don’t want to have someone just to administer Salesforce--we want something that works out of the box. The downsides are that you don’t have an infinite feature set but we don’t really need that either right now.

We use to track outbound and inbound sales. It takes care of the process before someone becomes a customer. is fantastic because it has all of the integrated pieces we need. For example, we can make phone calls directly from the system. It is a one stop hub for client communication.

The downside to is its pricing; it’s vastly more expensive than most other CRMs, but that may be money well spent if your focus is on perfecting your sales funnel.

How startups use

The pricing for is a bit prohibitive for some earlier-stage startups and it doesn’t have organizational hierarchies built into the app that larger companies might need, making it a better fit for midsized startups.
