Contactability
Contactability is really good for teams that are trying to branch out to an untapped market space. Especially those that are trying to disrupt the health insurance scene. This helps them get their foot in the door in the area and their name out in the community. The customer service representatives could be more responsive.

We chose to work with the Basecamp product and along with it came Highrise. They're a great 37 signals package together. So we chose to work with Highrise because of Basecamp

Pros
Contactability
  • The software reporting system is really clean and works well and they are good at sending you leads.
  • Their customer service is also willing to work with you and they really tried to help me improve our ROI.
  • Since using Contactability our workflow is changing. We now only pick up the phone when someone is interested in our services. The prescreening is all handled and we have control over the flow, what is said. Even when we're out of the office we can log in from anywhere and see what's happening with our leads and those missed calls get scheduled for us automatically.

Basecamp
  • Easy batch upload of new contacts - if you gathered names and contact info for a bunch of people at an event or conference or what have you, put it in a spreadsheet and upload it for easy and efficient adding to the database.
  • Simple communication and outreach tracking - each user has an individualized dropbox email address; you can BCC:, CC:, or forward an email to or from a client or contact, and Highrise automatically associates and records that email with the contact in the database.
  • Task assignments - users can create and task assignments associated with specific contacts (ie - Send Suzy J. a gift box on Oct 1; Follow Marla K. and Billy Z. on Twitter & Facebook; Get an updated address from Nathan R.)
  • Tags - easily create lists of contacts who fit certain needs (I need a: food blogger, in TX, who has a Facebook page - we have "food blogger", "TX," and "Facebook" tags in our system) that is then exportable; also useful for knowing the important associations of a particular contact.

Cons
Contactability
  • Call the toll-free customer service number and you are transferred to a blank voicemail, with an electronic repeat of the phone number.
  • The software training videos were confusing to non technical users.
  • We encountered bugs with the use of Windows 10. Some of the futures were bugged.

Basecamp
  • Im actually pretty happy with the system as it is. The best aspect of Highrise is that it is very easy to work with - no need to struggle with manuals and lengthy training.
  • Not really a problem I suppose but I pay for Highrise as part of a suite which includes other products - Basecamp, Backpack and Campfire. It would be nice to see more integration between these products.

Alternatives Considered
Contactability
Contactability does a pretty decent job as it is very user-friendly and puts us in contact with our prospective clients. What they could improve on that Insightly does well is training and support. This could be due to the size of the company or their prioritization of resources. Overall we enjoyed Contactability better than Insightly.

Basecamp
Highrise is simple to use and is run by the same folks who build Basecamp and 37Signals. We wanted something that would do the essentials without the cumbersome bells and whistles. Salesforce is almost too complicated if you don't have a whole sales operation and analytics division. One day we will probably outgrow Highrise, but not yet.

Return on Investment
Contactability
  • We got our people to become more open minded in trying new software and exploring options for automation.
  • Users got discouraged when the software did not work as it was supposed to and customer service was not there too help.
  • Once used correctly, we did have a large increase in the number of new clients that our office handled.

Basecamp
  • Better customer service, I am able to look up client info in a more organized way
  • I feel that our efficiency has really increased. Highrise is a lot faster than our old program
  • Highrise keeps us very organized. but it would be helpful if there was a project management section we could implement
