Fileboard is great for all sizes of sales organizations and very useful for those utilizing Salesforce. Their pricing is more affordable than competitors and their people are less pushy. My advice would be to demo the product and see if it fits your needs before looking at the more established and expensive competitors.

PersistIQ is well suited for outbound marketing. It's great for setting up sales and marketing campaigns to new and prospective clients. The fact that PersistIQ emails are basic (they look like normal personal emails) and easy to personalize, makes the whole process feel more genuine than, say,
. PersistIQ won't replace a bulk emailing tool or CRM. It serves a different purpose than, for example,

Makes it easy to manage large-scale cold email campaigns with 3+ steps. When a prospect replies to an email, it doesn't send them any of the automated emails which allow me to follow-up with those warm leads correctly. Read full review Cons My experience with Fileboard has been less than ideal after making the switch from a very similar product. Our sales team as well as our operations team has experienced a number of stability issues on calls with our prospective customers to the point that we are looking for alternative solutions before our contract with fileboard has even expired. I received more complaints from my team in 6 months using Fileboard than 2 years using a competing product. We attempted to part ways mid contract and request a refund for unused access but were rejected and accused of blackmail after I provided two possible outcomes to our situation. One being private resolution and parting ways and second being an honest assessment of my experience with Fileboard and wishing we had stuck with the slightly more expensive solution. Read full review I wish there was a way to send more than 1,000 emails per day. If it had more integrations with data scrapers or ways to add new leads it would be much better. I'd like a way to go deeper into a lot of my stats on various emails. Read full review Likelihood to Renew

We decided on PersistIQ because it was cheaper than the incumbents and as we were starting we wanted to see if this would be helpful or relevant to us. We later discovered
.io and we might switch to them as they are also cheap and look better, but we might also get back to manual emailing and Linkedin connecting.
