    Excellent software to increase sales and follow up with existing and new customers. Email and SMS handling are really easy for the sales team, managing leads is really great, and Close merges duplicate leads to help our Data Leads avoid repetitive and unnecessary calls. As mentioned in some comments before, must improve in reports, Close is not appropriate to handle or track agents' hours making it necessary to implement additional software to cover this area.

    Outreach

    In my opinion, Outreach is well suited for an enterprise sales team of 50+ users - otherwise, I feel you are unseen/unheard/unappreciated, and customer support is not offered for smaller scale teams. Outreach is well suited for outbound sales that offer simple solutions that can be communicated quickly and efficiently via cold email outreach.

    Pros

    Close

    • Email sequences. Create and send a sequence of emails until the sequence finishes or the contact replies to your email. You can also pause the sequence manually.
    • Email sync. Syncs in real time with your email account, which is huge.
    • Zapier integration. We've automated a lot of our pipeline management through the Zapier integration. This saves us soooo much time.

    Outreach

    • Organization - I know when to make calls/emails/LinkedIn connections without having to overthink anything.
    • Alignment - the colleagues I work with on my accounts can keep tabs on my activity so there is no redundancy or overcommunication.
    • Ease of use - all my contacts are in one place, and sending automated emails I have built in my sequences give me so much time back in my day.

    Cons

    Close

    • Make it so one can set the time at which the emails go out.
    • Make it easier to set up my workflow.

    Outreach

    • Triggers can be a little tricky to figure out - some limitations are not intuitive
    • User management through Salesforce feature - our process is to Freeze Salesforce accounts before deactivating them to ensure account/opportunity/contact migrations have fully taken place; Outreach will only remove licenses from deactivated users, which could be frustrating if we were already at our license cap and needed to add more users in that interim.

      I like Outreach, but I do wonder about new competitors that are 25-50% less expensive.

      Usability

      Close

      It's my favorite CRM to recommend to sales organizations. Robust Telephony options including a Power Dialer, SMS, and Voice Drop, are completely integrated into the CRM. The kicker is you can have "Unlimited" contacts where many platforms charge based on the number of users. This can make a huge difference in monthly billing.

      Outreach

      The ease of use for outreach is next to none. Everything is clearly explained, you can hop on a call with their support team whenever, and it effortlessly integrates into your computer. You can do everything you need sales related on it, and the learning curve is small. I'd recommend it as a first and last CRM.

      I haven't really had the need to use their support, but the only time I had an issue with the platform, the Close team was very attentive and responded in a short span of time. Also they take minimal time to solve issues. The only con here is there is no way to reach out to them apart from email.

      Outreach

      The overall support of Outreach has been great. Whenever I have a problem, they were quick to fix it and typically respond within one business day. I don't typically have many requests for support because a lot of my questions can be answered through their knowledge panel. They have been fantastic to work with overall.

      Outreach

      Lots of attention from the Outreach training team, with a great willingness to customize to our needs. To be clear, you get out what you put in. If you don't work with them, you'll get cookie-cutter training. But we asked for a lot of customization, and they delivered what we asked for.

      Outreach

      Although we required a special setup, the process was quick. But we paid a lot for the implementation and didn't use 33% of the hours we purchased.

      Pipedrive was great for us for a long time. We used it for over 4 years. Our product and process was simple. When things got more complex, we needed something that could handle our growing needs and Pipedrive kept falling short. We built our own custom solution in Airtable and though it worked, we spend a lot of time managing it. Close was able to solve all our issues and save us hours per week in admin work.

      Outreach

      Outreach does a great job being a one-stop-shop for all of your tools in one platform to help your SDR's and AE build pipelines and simplifying the process of nurturing/maintain communication with your contacts. You won't need to use other sales enablement tools with outreach. You'll be able to build sequences using 3 different channels of LinkedIn, emailing, and calls in one platform. You'll also be able to view overall insights of what sequences are performing well, how they are successful.

      Outreach

      • The huge positive impact it had was the team not needing to spend as much time as disengaged opps as they were engaged ones. We were able to set sequences to work with them while the team could focus on generating new leads or converting Opps.
      • For an AE - post demo communication is important. With templates and snippets we could just click a few buttons and have a really nice email sent out with the relevant information and then the next several steps already planned out. This freed up time for us and even allowed us to take calls a lot sooner after demo's then before. For busy days this was very helpful.
