ClearSlide

Clearslide makes it easy to share files with anyone via a single link. It simplifies the process of document sharing in the new "work from home" age we have now and allows multiple parties to view the same document, either simultaneously or separately. It is less appropriate for sensitive information, as the link can easily be shared between parties or forwarded on, so there is no gatekeeping.

Gong is ideal for sales conversations in which a wide range of products or services are addressed. When speaking with clients who have thick accents, this feature comes in handy for double-checking our understanding of what they've said the first time. Using Gong to examine demonstrations and conduct discovery calls is an excellent choice. This is the product's strongest suit. For the time being, the platform participates in calls with a decent degree of success. A great tool for team collaboration.

Pros

ClearSlide

  • Analytics: for sales, especially when selling virtually, it can be difficult to know if your customers are engaged with the presentation. Clearslide will give you reports that indicate how long customers were viewing what you were presenting, if/when you lost them, and at what place in your presentation you lost them. It can also show you how long potential customers spent reviewing follow-up materials you've sent them.
  • Screenshare: the screenshare functionality, when using Google Chrome, is very seamless, and the customer can take over the screenshare without needing any downloads or plug-ins.
  • Presenting: It's quite easy to present material with Clearslide, and to move between materials that you are presenting.

  • Tracking of next steps - It has pointers highlighted which help us understand if there is any actionable next step.
  • Recording of calls and storing them is all perfect.
  • Points of interest - It is a very detailed section (unlike any other tool) that helps us define what we want to track (competition, product features, go-to-market related).

Cons

ClearSlide

  • Call quality with CS has always been an issue in my two (2) years of experience with the platform. CS upgraded their phone provider in winter 2018, but the call quality has only been marginally improved from my perspective. Also, with the switch to a new phone provider, users are required to use a new conference line, access number, and a leader pin. The leader pin is new and adds an extra step to setting up a conference line, which seems unnecessary.
  • Content curation is probably my biggest issue with CS. With previous experience in a sales enablement company, I've seen how content can be curated to map to the seller's specific stage in a deal cycle, which is what most companies want. CS does not have this functionality from my perspective, and if it does, then overall curation capabilities are weak. Rather than curating content to match a seller's current point in a sales process, CS relies on surfacing content that is most popular or recently added. There is a search feature, which works well if you know what the collateral is called, but it is not scanning the content of documents to find what is most relevant. I equate the content feature of CS to a search that you would do in your computer's "Download" folder or even in Dropbox. If your company is smaller and only needs to surface a few pieces of collateral, then CS will work fine. If your organization is larger with large amounts of specific collateral, then I would look elsewhere.
  • The CS plugins for Outlook, Gmail, or your web browser are great ideas but executed poorly. The integrations have caused a lot of headaches for colleagues and me since their release. They have caused our email to close unexpectedly, content to not be linked properly, or emails to not be tracked. The idea for these integrations was to reduce the amount of time a seller has to jump between windows, which is awesome, but the integrations are full of glitches. One of the biggest glitches I've seen is how CS, Grammarly, and Outlook all work together. CS is always the component of those three that causes everything to freeze or crash. In short, the integrations are a great idea but executed poorly at this time.

  • I know I am only utilizing a fraction of Gong's capabilities...it would be great if Gong could share with me which parts of the platform I have not yet adopted & provide enablement on how to make those parts of the platform part of my sales process.

ClearSlide is embedded in our culture and in our organization. The sales and marketing teams use ClearSlide on a daily basis to share information and presentations as well as communicate "what is working." Our leadership uses the analytics to provide improved feedback and coaching regarding bottlenecks our representatives are experiencing.

It's an amazing tool that's an integral part of the sales org, and I can't think of any other tool that compares to quality of Gong.

Its easy to use from a presenter's perspective. Its web based so anyone who can navigate Facebook can open a live pitch or shared file. This makes it easy to give live demos, share files, and share screens with out downloading any software or installing java patches

Super easy to use, except for the times when I struggle to find the action items that I need to follow up on. Otherwise, it's easily accessible within OneLogin, and the email follow-ups are great as well. Occasionally it can take a while for Gong to complete analyzing the call, however, it's still accessible prior to completion of that process.

I was mostly involved in the implementation process and syncing ClearSlide with Salesforce, and I would say the support was mostly average. It took a few times to get everything scheduled, and a lot of the process was left up to me. I was reading through the documents that they supplied. It wasn't complicated, but more direct support would have been appreciated.

They have been very attentive and always communicating with us. They also are great at scheduling calls for training purposes and helping new members of my team. In that aspect I have nothing but great things to say, they are responsive, attentive and always willing to help. I really like working with them.

Alternatives Considered

ClearSlide

ClearSlide stacks up to be as good as any of the aforementioned tools. We selected Clearslide because of its ease of use and implementation. It did not take our team too long to get acclimated with how ClearSlide works and how they would be using it, allowing them to generate more meetings and more revenue.

Salesforce CMS captures my call data and notes that I include in the records, but it does not record the call and provide the specific data that Gong does. Gong does a nice job of giving me the specifics needed to make changes moving forward.

This product ROCKS!!!! ClearSlide shortened my sales cycle by over 50% by enabling to jump right into a LIVE demo on an initial client call so I don't have to waste time scheduling a demo at later date. People are busy and finding a time to schedule a call can take days or weeks

Return on Investment

ClearSlide

  • Has helped us close more deals because of the easy "on the fly" screen share
  • Also, you get a notification when people view your information so having that, I have followed up shortly after and closed the deal
  • Helps my team with all external presentations
Max J. Kouris | TrustRadius Reviewer

Gong

  • Made it easier to pull up specific instances you *did*cover something in training if there's a churn risk due "lack of training"
  • Less time thinking of ways a new hire can improve when you can just isolate areas of improvements via recordings
  • Can see when the sales team overpromised ;)
