    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.

    There are many LinkedIn automation products available, from Chrome extensions to desktop applications, to cloud-based apps like Skylead, and I've used many of them. Skylead stands apart with a simple, intuitive interface that is easy for my clients to use, is very economical compared to others, and is focused on continual improvement and customer service.

    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.

    • Convenient message inbox for responding to new leads.
    • Ability to integrate with CRMs and other 3rd party software for more automation.
    • Smart Sequences that use conditional logic to send LinkedIn messages as well as emails.
    • Customer service is very responsive and super helpful. They are a pleasure to work with.
    • Skylead is constantly improving and adding/updating features based on actual users' input via a feature request forum.

    Cons

    Close

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

    • It would be nice to be able to add steps to a sequence in an existing campaign
    • The user hierarchy is a little confusing, in terms of placing my end-user clients under my master account—a little unintuitive
    • Similar to above, it would be nice to have an additional level of user access, for scenarios in which I have a client with multiple salespeople on the platform, each with their own login (as it is now, with access only to their own account), but also have a companywide admin account for a sales manager who has access to all of their accounts with one login (I think they are working on this feature).

    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.

    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.

    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.
