Calendly
It's well suited for music students' lessons. It's well suited for online coaching, primarily through places like Zoom and more. It helps simplify things for your clients, lets you program your schedule, and allows it all to go automatically! If you are working with a senior population, it may be a little tricky for them to sign up and then really hard for them to cancel lessons. There isn't a way to go to the site and cancel. You have to pull up the confirmed email and cancel from there, but people can lose emails.

Salestools.io works perfectly for companies using a CRM or whatever other CRM software involving customer data. Also, Salestools.io is perfect to deal with the creation of an outreach campaign in an automatic way. You won't need to do follow-up yourself. However, it needs some training to work with it perfectly. In general is a great outbound sales tool.

Pros
Calendly
  • Sync with multiple calendar types so my schedule is always current.
  • Integration with Zoom to schedule meetings, send invites, and populate my Zoom app accordingly.
  • Automatic email communication to all parties with all relevant details in a clear format.
  • Allowing team members to do the same in a way that I'm also notified of what meetings are taking place saves a lot of time in terms of coordinating to find out what other people are doing.
  • Well-designed interface that simplifies everything down to its clearest expression. Language instruction and interaction are wonderfully simple and clear.

Cons
Calendly
  • After a meeting is booked, having the ability to change the location without canceling the entire booking.
  • Being able to offer 2 different locked in locations for certain time periods of the day within the same event. So you're not having to create 2 events for the same thing, only different locations.
  • Giving users permission to create their own routing forms. We run an independent business model where our users like to have control over their subscriptions.

  • You can't have custom fields, so forget about having customized emails other than the basic Name, Title, Company.
  • Salestools is plenty of super cool features, all (at least all the ones we used) are buggy and unusable in the end.
  • Can't have blacklisted addresses and domains.
  • Support will take days to respond, especially if you report a bug (it seems they will work extra hard to fix the bug, and then tell you that it didn't exist in the first place)
  • Virtually every other feature has bugs.

For all reasons like workflows, UI, and the way Calendly keeps all of us engaged through the Collective forum. It's indeed undeniable that no other product covers all business needs like Calendly does. On the other side, this has also reduced the workload by enabling us to focus more on other tasks for the day

Usability
Calendly
I gave Calendly an 8 because overall I think it is very much user friendly even for someone who has never used anything similar. The only issue I have had with usability is what I already stated about how the settings are in sub categories making some things difficult to find at first.

I only reached out to Support once but they were very prompt and easy to work with. I had some questions about setting up the follow-up emails for after people would do the interview. They were very helpful and gave assistance and we solved the issue very fast. I would definitely recommend.

Calendly
When I started using it, there were not many competitors in this space. I've seen some like Mixmax that seem to work well for solopreneurs or where free version might be better than Calendly's free version. I use the paid version of Calendly and it's just kept serving us well so why change?

We have been trying KLENTY mainly, however, the Prospector of Salestools.io is quite superior. For both cases, the preparation of campaigns are not as easy as it sounds, but as soon as you do the first, it will be easier for your business. Salestools.io has a better and easier interface and the webpage is superb. If you are looking just for follow-up, PLENTLY with doing, but if you need to find a prospect, Salestools.io is the service you need.
