Close.io is well suited for a sales organization who wants to track leads, make sure none slip through the cracks, move them into opportunities as discussions progress, and close new business. The simplicity of the platform is part of why it's powerful - it's full feature set can be easily understood and leveraged by even those without much training on the system. I'm not sure where Close.io would be less appropriate...

Outreach

I've implemented both Outreach and Salesloft. They are very similar tools, and my conclusion is that Outreach beats Salesloft in many areas, while being behind in a few. The Outreach user interface and Outlook integrations are best in class. In fact, the Outlook integration may be the #1 reason to choose Outreach. It's seamless, and allows you to perform many tasks directly from Outlook without having to engage with the Outreach app.It is the administrative functions where Outreach is a little behind. The CRM integrations are great. No complaints there. But creating cadences (sequences) is a particular chore. Copying and changing the order of steps is a much more painful process than with Salesloft. Also the out-of-the-box reporting and analytics functions are average at best.However, for the main audience -- the sales users -- Salesloft is a great sales automation tool, and probably the one I'd recommend first.

Pros

Close

  • You can search for prospects by your activity & notes.
  • It helps automate the follow up process.
  • It ties cold emailing into a powerful CRM all in one portal.
Joe Gatto | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Close

  • Minor bugs? - Sometime when I'm replying to an account it attempts to send the email as a different user. Thankfully I've only missed it when sending internal emails!
Ryan McCarty | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

Close is a simpler platform to use when it comes to initiating email campaigns and managing leads. It has great visibility on opportunities and can be shared with specified users or can also be kept confidential. Close is not for someone who is very new to tools of its kind.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

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.
Jason Vance | TrustRadius Reviewer

Outreach

Groove only allows for a certain amount of "flows" to be created. Also, when connecting it to your Gmail, Groove doesn't show how many times someone has opened the email or who opened it. We switched from Outreach to Groove, then back again.

Return on Investment

Close

  • Has allowed us to have full visibility into our pipeline
  • Has allowed us to automate lead entry and follow up, saving us tons of time and helping us to make sure we're not letting people slip through the cracks. This is done through the Zapier integration and new email sequences feature
Erik Zahnlecker | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
