Great for medium and large construction companies that have a specific salesforce.
Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

Salesflare

In my opinion, Salesflare is an excellent CRM for small businesses. It includes everything a small business needs to manage leads, deals, and contacts in one convenient location. When a client needs more information or something done, I can quickly record it in their account—perfect for B2B SaaS and small businesses selling B2B in general.

Pros

Cosential

  • Inputting of companies and leads who may become prospects.
  • Creating specific opportunities for construction projects.
  • Tracking opportunities through the entire sales cycle.
  • Inputting detailed notes and activity by the Sales team.
Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

Salesflare

  • Zero learning curve, one-minute setup and dead easy to integrate with complementary tools.
  • Powerful data automation features so everything you do has maximum bottom-line impact.
  • Stellar customer support: response is quick and the team really goes out of their way to solve your specific problems. Up to setting up custom solutions for you.
Gilles De Clerck | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Cosential

  • The open software is somewhat difficult to master as an administrator.
  • Report writing could be more intuitive.
  • The company seems to cater to larger users.
Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

Salesflare

  • It works wonderfully as a CRM for freelancers, consultants and small teams but feels like it would become more difficult to integrate with larger teams
  • Sometimes have issues with email syncing with missing emails or having to reconnect my email to Salesflare
  • Emails are sent from the app using their own servers, I would prefer to send via my own email system (Gsuite) for better delivery

Cosential is very intuitive for the AEC industry and has the ability to be customized for your specific needs. The reports are especially helpful, with good visual dashboards.

The pipeline, which is the core of the platform, is very clear and full of features. On top of that Salesflare added automations, integrations, plugins and emails. You can easily get your leads there from any platform and nurture your leads until you get the deal done. I think any business can benefit from using this sales CRM.

My original trainer / implementation specialist was fantastic. That relationship has continued, even though I have been officially handed off to the customer service side. The customer service side seems to have higher turnover than normal, but in general they are also very supportive, although not as responsive as I might like.

Hit them on Chat support, and you are gonna get a response within a few minutes (if not in a few hours, during weekends)But they are gonna keep following with you till they make sure that your query has been resolved. Keep it up!

Alternatives Considered

Cosential

Cosential is specific to the A/E industry and is the most intuitive software we found for construction.
Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

Salesflare

Salesflare does its own thing compared to the others I've tried. It's unique even though it shares many of the main features a CRM should have. Salesforce Lightning is amazing and feature-packed but can often get overwhelming depending on your use case. I never experience any slight lag or load times with Salesflare. Lightning can sometimes hang depending on your browser etc.

Return on Investment

Cosential

  • Allowed for common tracking by business developers in different regions.
  • Helped us quantify effort.
  • Provides great reports for management.
Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

Salesflare

  • So far, as optimistic as I am about using the CRM, I've seen a short and speedy return on my investment.
  • Our sales process will quickly become more focused and effective. It's part of our operations and saves us time, but we've never tracked the financial impact.
