Best suited for contact discovery on LinkedIn or for that matter any website, but it works best on LinkedIn. It saves tons of work, you can simply select the complete list of people you want to contact and put them directly into an email sequence. It is a little difficult to find contact info on other websites.

reply is an excellent sales management solution. If any company wants to save time and keep their sales team flexible, they should try it first. It is a fantastic tool for delivering multiple emails to any target audience. This is also the best deal for firms who looking for an all-in-one solution, as it provides virtually unlimited email addresses along with CRM and outreach automation. Ryan Dury

Read full review Pros Allows users to easily add new prospects to database without much manual effort at all Allows you to make cold calls from different area codes that are relevant to where your prospect is located Allows A/B testing for emails so you can figure out which ones are gaining the most traction You can also find prospects based off of title, company, technologies, etc Read full review This product gives me the liberty to very easily and freely navigate all things on my own, which does not require many skills to start working. This product gives us the leverage of creating our own tailored and personalized templates for our teams in just a matter of minutes. This program is so automated that it performs everything on its own from LinkedIn to email search, to even booking meetings. I found the onboarding process pretty great and efficient. I am really happy with the overall customer support. They are some of the nicest people I have met who are there to willingly help me at any time of need and problem. Their usability is also hands down very good. However, I find their user interface to be slightly less user-friendly, so there is some degree of scope in the improvement of their user intuitiveness and user-friendliness. Read full review Cons Their customer service is just terrible. You get an assigned account manager but 9/10 times they wouldn't know what you wanted and/or how the product works or how to fix it. Vast majority of the time it was a canned response that made you question if they read the message, or if they read it and did not understand a word. The software was relatively buggy and lacked features that were promised upon signup. They seem to have some large corporate clients and if you aren't one none of your bug submissions, feature requests, or concerns will be addressed. Their growing quickly so they seem to be very understaffed which I believe caused many of the issues above. The data, while good, can quickly run out if you're looking for specific types of leads. If you're looking for something generic like Managers at companies between 10-5000 people, you can pull leads all day every day. However if you're looking for a specific industry, specific title, and specific location - don't count on having an endless supply of leads (or even really enough to use month after month).

Similar to syncing, there’s no way to export results of particular campaigns. This is awful. If I send out a campaign to a group, I’d like to export the results to enter into a CRM since I can’t sync the contacts. One of these features must be added ASAP. Organization. While Reply itself is user-friendly, keeping campaigns and contacts and results organized is not. You cannot organize campaigns or file them away when they are done. Therefore you have to delete campaigns to stay organized and lose results, which you cannot even export. Read full review Support Rating
I received excellent support at any time I opened up a ticket. But I would add to it that the tool was very self-explanatory, so there wasn't much need for support. With Outreach, we have a closer relationship with our CSM because of the intricacy in things like SFDC task mapping.

I generally receive a reply in no time at all and found not only the support org. but the sales team to be extremely helpful. Additionally I found a great onboarding process with plenty of resources to consume.

I have also looked into and tried Hunter.io and Lusha, and to be honest, I shouldn't compare them with Apollo. I have found Apollo to be so easy to integrate and use with all of my prospecting that I haven't really even tried out the other two. I bet I could find some useful things by using Hunter.io or Lusha as well, but there is honestly no need since I can do everything I want and more with Apollo. I would just be wasting time trying to figure out another platform when I can be focused on growing my own business with Apollo.

These tools are great, but they aren't built for what we use Reply for. Reply is perfect for doing these outbound campaigns at scale, whereas with
we were trying to turn the tools into something they are not.
Read full review Return on Investment Generated a lot of expectations that were not real when we needed them The ROI was positive but we decided to stop using the tool We loved how easy to use it was and how easy it was to interact with the Support team There is room for improvement in the video tutorials - they were from old versions of the software that would not be useful for the version at hand Read full review They lacked proper security certifications. Saved time and effort on mass email campaigns. Helped gain insights on our outbound business efforts. Read full review ScreenShots
