Cosential

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

Salesflare

Salesflare is recommendable for any business that runs a lean sales setup with a website for lead generation, empowered with maybe cold outreach and/or lead nurturing. Mostly so for small-to-medium sized businesses: they can save a ton of time/money generating more revenue with their human sales efforts, while Salesflare does the rest of the job.

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

  • Salesflare integrates with Gsuite (as well as many other email platforms) allowing me to still use Gsuite as my main communication tool but still get the full value out of the Salesflare CRM
  • Salesflare literally integrates with everything
  • Salesflare takes care of many tasks automatically for you like contact imports as well as meeting and call management

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

  • Click to call would be a great help for clients' numbers
  • Branded UI or more customization options
  • More features to customize accounts

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

Other products we've tried or evaluated have been too complex and/or been "too customizable" in that they do not offer an easy and intuitive path to enabling your sales team right out of the box.

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

  • It's a part of our operations. It just saves us time, but we never measured how it impacts the bottom line. It's all about convenience.
