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.

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.

  • Administrative platform can be slow at times
  • Can take up a lot of storage on the iPad
  • Usability on the desktop is not nearly as strong as it is on the iPad

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.

I have not been involved with support from Showpad so I am not entirely sure. However, we have received some emails from our help desk about an outage and it seems like it didn't last very long so I would say that it was pretty effective support to that extent.

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.

We originally changed from ClearSlide because I felt we had too many crashes during demos, and it was very slow. Also, the audio quality was poor.

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.
