If you are a sales rep and want to know if your email has been opened without having to use receipts this is perfect. However, many people find this intrusive and inappropriate. I don't believe in this day and age there should be a moral outrage to track your emails but it happens. I particularly like it for Outlook 2016. I've tried Yesaware but found this better suited.

SugarCRM
It is a fantastic and very useful application. It has many customization options, but it does not have the power that a giant company requires.

Contact Monkey was the best solution for Outlook 2016. While Yesaware is a good product with Microsoft 365 integration, I found it expensive and too feature rich for what I needed. If you are just trying to find something simple that does what you need well and cheap, this is the best solution on the market. It does have Salesforce integration but I just use the Salesforce product that is free and provides the same or more prospect info.

SugarCRM
Very similar. Two different layouts for two totally different systems. Collabspot/Sugar is my primary system, but when I was an SDR, I used HubSpot for prospecting primarily because of email automation. Now that I'm a Territory Manager, I don't use HubSpot much anymore as my time is filled up with partners and clients--I do less "hunting" these days than I did as an SDR. Our company uses SugarCRM and Collabspot is integrated so I use Collabspot almost exclusively now. Right tool for the right job, I guess.

Return on Investment
ContactMonkey Inc.
  • I've found companies that have shared my email and opened the email 20-60 times but never responded. It gave me an absolute understanding that this was a hot company
  • Sometimes knowing your email is being opened can be very frustrating if you cannot get a response. However, at least you know it was read and they are not interested.
  • My boss and fellow employee's don't like the fact that I know where they are located. It's somewhat divisive in that sense.

  • Customers can respond to our requests quickly.
  • The staff of the administration is much more committed to their work.
