This is great software for differentiating where phone traffic is coming from. Whether it's paid/organic search, you can see exactly where the calls are coming in from. I'd love to see them add text/SMS features in the future, but it does what it claims. I'd also like to see more CRM integrations, but not sure that other users share the same sentiment

DemandScience Activate is well suited for inclusion in paid media programs where there is an account-based focus. It's great to be able to pinpoint exactly the personas, job titles, and seniorities of those you're reaching, and see those names come through in acquisition reports. We see success in driving the right title paths into our database for nurturing.
Read full review Pros Tracking phone calls first & foremost! Being able to have a running tally of the phone calls made and listening to the recorded calls throughout the month and providing that information back to our clients is vital! Their UI is exceptionally easy to use & navigate. This is important when we have many clients running at the same time and we are able to always determine what report is for which client. The ease of setting up a brand new client & their tracking phone number is fantastic! Saves a lot of time when it walks you through everything you need to know & do step by step. Read full review They understand the marketing funnel and have created product to support each step of the journey. DemandScience is agile in how they work with their clients. They were willing to modify their processes to accommodate ours. Sales does a good job of identifying our needs and making product recommendations. Read full review Cons The integration with Hubspot is not as seemless as I would have liked. We had an issue where a person who was already in Hubspot called in, and their contact information was not matched to the caller ID correctly which created some duplicate entries. A little bit of a bummer, but from what I understand they may have fixed this. We had to stop using them for a little while because our outsourced sales team was more confused by adding CallRail, so we'll be re-implementing this once our new sales team is fully trained. Hopefully the record miss-match issue gets fixed. Read full review We would like to see more proactive communication on what's working and what's not without requiring a meeting - regular reporting cadence to assess asset quality A dashboard view might be nice as well, again, so we can look at an asset and see how it's performing (or if it isn't) without having to wait on a rep to pull a report or schedule a walkthrough Read full review Likelihood to Renew
Our executives decided to not renew because we were not seeing the ROI they were looking for. However, our executives did not make the best decisions on the data Demand Science provided.
Read full review Usability
The platform is easy to use and we really don't have any complaints with using it so far. The information is invaluable for clients that rely on phone calls to drive more business. Not much negative to say about it at this point. We're actually really happy with it so far and the cost is manageable.

The leads were pretty straight forward. However, their appointment setting did not integrate well into our system and many of the meetings didn't occur. I had to chase a lot of prospects and many times Demand Science didn't provide direct dials.

CallRail support normally gets back to us pretty quickly when we submit a ticket and they have a good knowledge base for common questions. I've heard mixed reviews from other local marketing agencies that use this tool, but overall in my experience, support has been knowledgeable and quick working through our problems.

I enjoyed working with the initial rep and campaign manager, but as the campaign manager left the company, there was a gap in expertise and customer care. This drop-off in quality of care was notified internally and caused team members to raise concerns. Hopefully, we will see improvements with the most recent change in campaign managers.

They did extremely well. However, our executives did a poor job in defining our ICP so we didn't get the maximum benefit out of it.

Callrail has a very seamless and easy to use Dynamic Number Swap function. In other call tracking that we looked into the integration was either not as easy to use or required much more work to implement. Setting up CallRail has been so easy even our entry-level employees need very little training to master the platform.

The quality of leads that we got from INFUSE media was truly horrible. The leads often did not meet our qualifications set that would qualify them as MQLs and if they did, when they were reached out to, we were told they had no interest in converting and that they didn't even remember clicking the ad. So, we did not know for sure where the leads came from and we could not convert them. None of this is a problem with DemandScience.
Read full review Return on Investment CallRail has helped us follow up on quality leads, something we couldn't do effectively prior to using this product. The reporting feature has helped us to generate reports that have helped us plan and increase conversion rates. It helps us plan our budget effectively because we can easily see which campaigns are effective and should be targeted.
