Autoklose

I recommend others to have this platform with [their] other CRM’s to easily decrease [their] work burden and increase productivity in the organization. It is a great platform to create, manage, and execute the bulk of email campaigns without any disruption in work and no hurdles in providing reporting in real-time. [Autoklose is] a completely robust and modernized system that we are using in our organization.

SharpSpring

SharpSpring is a great choice for a small team running on a budget. It has most the big features you'd expect from a full stack marketing automation system. I think it's essential to have a savvy marketing automation user to use the software to it's full capacity though.

Pros

Autoklose

  • Autoklose organizes thousands of email contacts and campaigns for you. Emailing from company servers can be comatose, time consuming and damaging to the companies spam score. This product eliminates that issue entirely while providing even better results.
  • Diverse Campaign options with scheduling- Less hours spent building and more time increasing lead flow. Productivity booster.
  • Keeps company emails out of spam!

SharpSpring

  • Moves deals through the sales process. It's very easy to update the sales pipeline.
  • Ease of use. It was very easy for me to learn SharpSpring and continue to use it.
  • Adding contacts and opportunities is simple, and it will warn the user before creating a duplicate contact.
Jason Carlage | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Autoklose

  • The system is not designed to send out hundreds of emails within the hour. Thus if you have timely information, and you have a large list, it will generally take many hours to execute.
  • Related to the above, timing of email delivery does jot exist nor can it be customized by timezone.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SharpSpring

  • The email builder within SharpSpring is usable, but definitely not user friendly. I recommend building the emails elsewhere and importing the code.
  • The sales management tool could use a few more default reports beyond those that are currently available.
  • Their customer service is great, but I think the training could use some improvement. In fact, we've had to go outside for some of our user training.

We have been very impressed with all aspects of this software and the potential for it to radically change how we operate is huge! Support has been exceptional and we have discovered many extra uses for the software than originally thought. Not only will it give us benefits for our company's growth, but for our client's growth as well.

It is well set out from a user interface perspective and once you understand how it works you understand the power and the logic of how it is done. Like any software it helps to be a frequent user, but Autoklose lets you set up campaigns in the shortest possible time based on experience with other systems that I have used.

This rating is coming from an administrative perspective. With so many features, workflows, dashboards, and more, there is certainly a lot going on, and even the most savvy software user can get a little overwhelmed when trying to decide how to best implement and utilize the platform to its full potential. That being said, the SharpSpring platform is well-implemented and well-organized, with most solutions being fairly intuitive, once you have a grasp of the software. It is fairly easy to learn, but difficult to master. Just like any powerful platform, however, the complexity is worth it, and once you are comfortable navigating and problem solving within SharpSpring, it becomes a great marketing and sales tool which can do virtually anything you need it to.

Shawn and Jelena have gone above and beyond to make sure I have had the support I needed to get our team up and running. I see opportunities to improve our implementation and I hope we can work together to make it happen so that we can boost the ROI quickly.

The support is great which really helps overcome challenges if you become stuck and the training videos are great too. Same-day replies are great and I even got some help with some CSS code on the chat. Not many organizations would do this or even respond.

Overall I would say to be patient and bring everyone who will be touching the platform to the onboarding sessions. The Virtual Classroom lets you onboard as quickly or slowly as you want. Sales, marketing, design, account management, get 'em all in on it. For the most part, they will be happy to use this platform. I recommend getting as many people as possible to see the SharpSpring demo.

Alternatives Considered

Autoklose

Mailshake is more complicated because it's a direct email sender, but it gives you its opinion on the type of messages you may send. The advantage Autoklose takes is the data base and it's more of a lead gen system. LeadFuze is on course with Autokloze. It seems LeadFuze has more adaptability in my opinion in regards to LinkedIn, etc.

SharpSpring

We have tested and work with several marketing automation/CRM systems over the course of over 25 years in the B-to-B marketing/advertising business, among them are: HubSpot, Marketo, Pardot, Zoho, Salesforce, and many others. SharpSpring continues to be the gold standard for me in terms of overall value and ease of use.

Return on Investment

Autoklose

  • It has definitely helped us with our manufacturers - another arrow in our technology quiver that helps us to differentiate ourselves from our competition.
  • The platform is still fairly new to us, however we are seeing some results of marketing efforts - customers have responded to us with inquiries based upon the campaign we are running.
Brad Bowman | TrustRadius Reviewer

SharpSpring

  • Being able to see the leads we are bringing in dramatically improves our ability to be effective on behalf of our clients.
  • This same feature is critical to showing our value to our clients.
  • SharpSpring helps our clients see exactly who we our bringing them and the value of those leads and the return on their marketing investment.
