ConnectAndSell

If your organization relies on outbound leads through cold calling, this is a great tool for you. ConnectAndSell definitely made the associate's jobs easier at our company and allowed them to produce greater output than they could have done manually without such a tool. This tool is less appropriate if cold calling isn't a big part of your company's lead generation efforts.

LinkPoint Connect

LinkPoint is great for people who spend a lot of time working inside outlook. It allows you to update and add records directly from outlook and it has some built-in duplicate prevention which is nice if you don’t have duplicate prevention measures in place. It’s fast and stable. A lot of our users were unable to use SFO due to it crashing outlook.

Cons

ConnectAndSell

  • One thing that's been difficult about Connect and Sell is some people can tell you've been patched through so if you can work past the initial conversation it ends up working great.
  • The system has worked great with outreach which we've integrated our contacts directly into the system. Because of this the connection between outreach and connect and sell don't always communicate calls and metrics which are crucial for us to know conversion rates.
  • We had a hard time getting the system implemented quickly and working the way we wanted it to. Because of the implementation specialist we were working with problems weren't solved quickly rather they were worked through quickly however they were solved.

LinkPoint Connect

  • Installation is a bit tricky for non tech savvy users.
  • Ability to sort/filter search results when looking for additional records.
  • The ability to mass create multiple contacts/leads from an email would be nice.

For the right reps who are good at talking to prospects who aren't expecting their call, this is a no brainer.

I have had a few support calls with their people. They are totally reachable and helpful, sharing screens, controlling my screen, showing why things happened, not just correcting it. If you have an issue with the software, let them help. They are there for you, and they are friendly, accessible, and happy to do their job.

Never had to use the support team, which probably means the product works well!

Alternatives Considered

ConnectAndSell

With Outreachr, you have the old school version of dialing, waiting, hanging up etc. ConnectAndSell is a much more efficient tool when it is running in full swing. Unfortunately, the implementation team spent the majority of the introduction trying to teach us how to sell instead of showing us how to work their product.

LinkPoint Connect

Cirrus Insight was a huge fail for us as it searched and pulled in matching records looking at all custom and standard email fields. We have a lot of emails fields that contained employee email addresses (for notifications) so it pulled in records that didn’t match making the results hard to search through.

Return on Investment

ConnectAndSell

  • We did not have a positive experience with ConnectAndSell from an ROI perspective.
  • ConnectAndSell did not have a give us a positive result on our business objective.
  • We did have a great sale to start transition, and that support was good. However, ongoing support was frustrating.
