For someone who uses both Gmail and
as part of their main role, this software is an invaluable connector for them both. Some of the features are also not
specific - such as the Meeting Scheduler, which has proved invaluable to me, and I would recommend to any Gmail user who frequently set up meetings (either internally or externally).

1. Looking up the technologies, analytics tools, and services used by your competitors and industry leaders. 2. Checking what has changed technology-wise on the website of your competitor, since you've noticed an improvement in their rankings or other website improvements. You can even set up alerts to receive emails every time a new change was made to the technology of the website you're interested in (usually your top competitors').
Read full review Pros Log email to Salesforce. You click one button and it logs for you. This is easier than adding the BCC email address that Salesforce provides as a way to log email. Track views and engagement on these emails. It's nice to know if the email was opened and if links were clicked. Update quick fields in Salesforce directly from their inbox using Cirrus. This prevented reps from needing to click into Salesforce, wait for it to load, then update fields like the phone number or name. If the rep did need to open Salesforce, Cirrus provides a quick button to navigate to the Lead/Contact/Opportunity page quickly. Read full review We were considering changing a hosting provider because we were not happy with the speed of our website. So, we used SimilarTech to look up which hosting providers our competitors and some other faster websites were using, to help us make an informed choice. When the company was considering a new live chat vendor, we also used SimilarTech to see what software some of the best websites on the web are using.

Doesn't always find an opportunity, even though I know it's in our Salesforce system. Randomly shuts down and doesn't log in properly at times. I've had to remove and re-download more than once.

It's hard to think of a situation where I couldn't get the information I needed from SimilarTech. Read full review Likelihood to Renew

The plugin is installed inside your internet browser as an extension/add-on. It can be found in most add on stores and is easy to install. Usually just a few clicks. It handles authorization for you once you sign in, and then takes care of all the rest. It couldn't be easier to get working right out of the box. You're up in running in less than 5 minutes.

regularly sent me alerts that my emails had been opened by someone who I hadn't sent them to, from locations they couldn't possibly have been. I also don't recall its Salesforce activity logging working as smoothly, though I last used
more than 12 months ago so my memory isn't as fresh as it could be
