Act! CRM

Swiftpage [ACT!] is
robust in nature and a manageable solution available for use as a powerful
marketing tool. It is compiled of a lot of exceptional services with the best
contact and customer management tool. Support needs a lot of attention, as it
needs to be changed and they must have to be more responsive and helpful to
become the best in the market.

Sendinblue works openly with transactional email for the case of sales operators, so it is quite good in the commercial area. Therefore we want to recommend it to be used by salespeople who need a fast service when sending and collecting information about sales transactions. Sendinblue could have a huge reach if you work not only from emails, but also from social networks, mostly because it adapts to different data collection formats, which ultimately serve to obtain more varied analytical reports regarding the type of audience you hope to reach, and the number of customers you want to establish as the main target of the campaign within these social networks. Since the platform shows a fairly high level of security, since from the beginning of its use there have not been any kind of mishaps with information leaks or losses based on accidents (which could lead to the termination of such meetings), it can also be said that it serves to keep the content of past campaigns protected without any intrusion as mentioned above.

Pros

Act! CRM

  • Lots of fields for adapting the software to your own requirements.
  • Excellent tracking of activities/details in sales pipeline process.
  • Excellent robust reporting to provide a very clear picture of prospecting activities.
  • Tightly integrated with Sage Quantum accounting software to avoid double entry of prospect details into Customer/Sales module.

Sendinblue

  • Sendinblue's customer evaluation system is perhaps the most important point offered by the platform, since it serves to create delimitations regarding the type of customer that we plan to get for the company, and that can meet the payments corresponding to our work methodology. In other words, it can be moldable and adaptable to our sales style.
  • Sendinblue allows us to handle not only emails, but also several types of messages as an autoresponder once customers have contacted us, where we announce that the information has been properly received and that we will soon review the information and contact them directly, allowing them to become familiar with the company even during waiting times.
  • We have our own image library, where we can access different types of images depending on what we need for our specific campaign, or in any case, if we have already added an image to the Sendinblue platform that was not there by default, it is possible to access it again from the library.
  • The best thing about the support assistance offered by Sendinblue is that it is possible to receive answers from them at any time during the average working hours, in which we can receive Sendinblue usage data regarding doubts or conflicts we have at a technical level when developing some platform mechanics, and which have been easy to solve.
  • We are pleased with the fact that Sendinblue is such a good software for executing marketing plans. Sendinblue has managed to adapt to our needs as marketers by adapting to all the customer evaluation and follow-up operations we require in order to maintain an acceptable level of sales, and it's all thanks to the practicality of working within the platform.

Cons

Act! CRM

  • Social Integration: The tool has a basic feed for LinkedIn information to feed into the system. The infusion of more Social Selling "signals" and "feeds" would be very helpful to instill more social selling into the framework.
  • Account vs. Contact: If you are a company which works to B to B rather than B to C there is a still a bit of cumbersome way to handle "joining" accounts and contacts through links. It is better with 16.1 release but still it's a "contact" centric solution which is great for some business relationships like realtors, insurance, & financial services etc.

  • The customer support could use some improvement. When our company moved to SendinBlue, we already had a large email list to import. SendinBlue had to verify the list to ensure it was legitimate which is fine, but we received no email notification of needing verification and I didn't know until I tried sending an email. Everything up to that point indicated that the account was fine.
  • The email design feature could also use some work. It's fairly simple in it what it offers and I would have liked to see more content features. It would also be nice if they added a feature to preview the email on a mobile device.

ACT follows the basic rules you would expect for this type of software, but actually doing anything sophisticated with it is near impossible without assistance or training. Unless you use it regularly it is difficult to use. I wouldn't recommend it unless you have internal IT support and it will be used regularly.

I am a web designer and systems admin. I have not found anything with this system that was hard to use. Other systems make it hard to do simple tasks and is very limiting. SendinBlue doesn't limit you.

Everything loads very quickly, it saves as you go along so you're unlikely to loose work if your computer fails. Reports are there immediately too so you're able to act quickly on customer engagement.

Following a few interactions with support staff over the phone where we failed to correct the issues we were calling about, we ended up going back to the consultant who we purchased the software through and continued to use her for support rather than call Swiftpage ACT! directly. Our consultant was much more helpful in finding and correcting our issues.

These people helped me identify errors when setting up DKIM and were more than helpful in trying to diagnose low open rates with a few campaigns identifying where improvement can be made and how to more effectively manage contact lists. The support is excellent.

Alternatives Considered

Act! CRM

Although other CRM's like HubSpot offer a free solution, I found that it didn't give much and the add-ons were very expensive. Many other companies have interfaces that are clunky or hard to understand. Also I found that many just offer way too many features that we would never use that just made it more difficult to use what we needed. The customized options are just way to expensive for the simplistic offering we need. Swiftpage ACT! just provides a solution that works for us.

Sendinblue

Sendinblue has the most flexible pricing plans that I found suitable for any kind of business. It has the most effective communication system for teams which is important for coordination between teams when collaborating on projects. This platform is also most effective in customizing Facebook ads and monitoring the performance of these ads to effectively adjust accordingly.

Return on Investment

Act! CRM

  • ACT! pays for itself by keeping me organized.
  • I don't have to remember to contact a prospect, ACT! remembers for me, letting me schedule follow ups for a date and time that works for me. That means greater sales success.
  • ACT! enables me to search for information as well as contacts.
Mary Westheimer | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sendinblue

  • Our previous mail client didn't sent all the emails within a short time frame which caused issues for us in terms of our advertisers. Switching to SendinBlue was very helpful in this aspect, and the ease of creating and editing newsletters have made us much more timely with our newsletter blasts.
