Chose Drift
SnapEngage is a little clunkier with less features and not as user friendly/aesthetic. Drift is highly customizable with beautiful interface, and I believe the reason why our team chose Drift is due to the many integrations & features that can tailor chat messages. It's also …

Chili Piper, Inc.
Chili Piper is GREAT for sales development teams booking for sales people. This is especially true when there is a "round robin" system that needs to be abided by. I've experienced a lot of bad round robin systems and Chili Piper's is fantastic. This is also a great tool to schedule with people across multiple time zones, which I don't want to have to focus on while speaking. It enables sales reps to focus on the prospect, not the time change. Chili piper would not be a good fit for underperforming sales teams that don't book any meetings (:

Drift
It is recommended for any company; it is a comprehensive tool for teams interested in strengthening business management and improving efficiency. It allows you to automatically schedule support with customers, thus saving a lot of time. Large companies can establish a chat and communication between potential customers, answering their questions quickly; allow you to monitor and track your leads and new leads, to make it fully functional, it has a very affordable value so that it can be used in all companies, it will not affect their economic aspects.

Pros
Chili Piper, Inc.
  • Chili Piper integrates with Salesforce very well which I haven't seen other calendar apps do yet.
  • Meeting Buffer functionality assures that AEs won't be booked back-to back.
  • I can send the link to each of my meeting templates for different prospects

Drift
  • Easy to implement - we were up on our site in hours.
  • Increases the volume and quality of buyer conversations - visitors get to value faster and qualify themselves by chatting in.
  • Surfaces relevant experiences and content to people faster based on targeted use cases.
  • Brings your brand to the prospect experience to stand out in the market. For example, our mascot Ollie Llama welcoming visitors on the homepage with funny llama.

Cons
Chili Piper, Inc.
  • They are continually improving their offering and we've seen great leaps over the past 2 years.
  • Would be nice to be able to modify the email reminders for every single contact and event versus have set templates
  • Faster load times, but we can’t complain too much!

  • Whenever there have been challenges with the product, the team has always been hungry to fix the issues that we raise.
  • In-platform reporting on conversion metrics can be improved. For example, it's not possible to report on business vs non business email capture rate (currently reported by our CSM every week), and to get the most detail about meetings that have been booked, you have to export data and review in Sheets/Excel. Drift responds quickly, and they're already working on this... so by the time you read this review, the reports will probably be fully functional in the platform.

The customer-facing usability is great, but managing drift from the back end can be challenging at times. This is mainly due to slow loading speeds when it comes to editing or viewing routing. Coupling this with no autosave function, changes are hard to make and can easily be lost.

Support Rating
Chili Piper, Inc.
  • Support was very responsive during our integration phase, and after that too.
  • They have the whole infrastructure built to notify customers about bug/outages, which is excellent. Entire System outage only happened once, but being updated on fix progress helped a lot to keep our team calm.

The Drift team has been remarkably responsive to me. From support reps available in-app, to my account manager committed to my long-term success, to regular connections and interactions with their leadership team. They have been wholeheartedly committed to answering every question and solving every issue so that we can succeed as a team, and I can succeed as a marketer!

Calendly was being used at the company by some other departments and still is to some extent. However adding Chili Piper fore the marketing and sales departments was a no brainer once we saw the demo. It's Calendly on steroids and the company is just getting started using it. I'm sure we will see even more benefits as the years go on.

I have used a few different chat platforms, the most popular one being Intercom. They both have some similarities in functionalities and features. I have had more success with Drift and the calendar link/automation. I love the fact that a prospect can easily find my calendar link and book a demo without needing to speak with me.
