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.

Being out from the office, [Salesforce Mobile (formerly Salesforce1 Mobile App)] is a supporting tool to bring all the information with you without having the need of bringing the laptop. As I said before, I am a sales manager and it is much more comfortable for me to use the mobile app instead of bringing a bag or something similar only for the laptop. However, it wouldn't make any sense to use it in the office as you can enter into Salesforce from your computer and have a better experience with the SF product as it is much more comfortable to use. At the end it has a much larger screen than a phone or a tablet and it has many more possibilities as a whole
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 The ability to construct lead list for various marketing channels and have our staff prioritize calls. It's simple to use, just has to be set up once, and it's safe. The most important aspect of this app is that all of its features are incredible, especially the reporting capabilities and the ability to quickly input customer information. The app allows sales reps to focus on opportunities while on the field. The app has a feature that allows you to set up quick action for a variety of tasks. 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). Read full review Just like Salesforce, there's a lot you can do with the app. It can feel overwhelming if you don't know what you're looking for. This isn't necessarily a fault, but when you use Salesforce on a computer most of the time, when going to Mobile you do have to make an adjustment and be prepared for a different layout and navigation.

Salesforce Mobile is very useful to our organization. This makes the job of an agent more convenient. We can easily access it on our mobile phones. When you need an update for a certain lead, you can simply check it using your phone, you don't need to spend more time opening it on your computer or laptop.

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 haven't had the need to contact support, but the online community has a VAST knowledge of support if you're in need. For instance, I needed to know how I could set the dashboard up to automatically refresh and the online community helped me within minutes.

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.

I have used HubSpot and
CRM at previous companies but both of them are fundamental CRMs. Salesforce can truly be implemented to meet your unique business attributes and can scale as your company grows. It's no wonder it's the #1 CRM in the world. Plus with 100s of integrations to other apps, Salesforce can achieve a lot more than just managing sales.
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 Reduces the amount of times i need to get in the computer during weekends (to check stuff) Reduces the heaviness of my bag when im doing field sales no negatives, if it had i would just do it in the computer Read full review ScreenShots
