In-platform reporting on conversion metrics can be improved. For example, it's not possible to report on business vs non business email capture rate (currently reported by our CSM every week), and to get the most detail about meetings that have been booked, you have to export data and review in Sheets/Excel. Drift responds quickly, and they're already working on this... so by the time you read this review, the reports will probably be fully functional in the platform. Adrian Cohn

Read full review It doesn't have a lot of information for mid-market in Latin America, so there is info you can increase on this. Job posting may not be part of the Commercial Module because it is where salespeople may look at it and start another process. You may add a top 100 list per country in the lists by default, to make it easier to use when putting attention on the correct sectors. Read full review Usability
The customer-facing usability is great, but managing drift from the back end can be challenging at times. This is mainly due to slow loading speeds when it comes to editing or viewing routing. Coupling this with no autosave function, changes are hard to make and can easily be lost.

Overall our organization has completely moved to Oracle CX Sales and now is able to utilize the latest technology backed by AI to provide a much better experience to customers and saving money at the same time. So it's a Win-Win situation. I believe there is a slight learning curve to derive [the] full value out of this but once you are there, you can delight your customers.

Excellent online training material. On-demand always helps to access anytime, anywhere. Also, it is essential that in this day and age, video tutorials with actual product screenshots make the learning more useful and fun at the same time. Certifications help test knowledge gained during these tutorial sessions. This was a blessing for fresh users.

I have used a few different chat platforms, the most popular one being Intercom. They both have some similarities in functionalities and features. I have had more success with Drift and the calendar link/automation. I love the fact that a prospect can easily find my calendar link and book a demo without needing to speak with me.

As compared to other CRM, this happens to be one of the best and most affordable as there are some cons, but the pros are great, and I have seen an increase in sales by using this platform. It works great for the sales process from start to end, like lead generation to closure.

When we purchased this system it was one of the more expensive options in the market. However, with an adjustment in service and a relative price structure, this has become a lot more cost-effective over the past few years. It’s now more of a middle-ranking in the pricing structure and I would definitely say this is value for money.

Reducing friction you will increase your inbound audience engagement traffic. With Drift, our company has increased our qualified sales meetings booked more than 3x than when we used forms. Read full review Unfortunately, our sales team has decreased productivity by trying to use the mobile application. It is poorly designed, and I've heard the same feedback from people at other organizations. The ability to track and convert sales leads has proven to be a positive impact on ROI. We are able to pass along leads and opportunities to our resellers. Read full review ScreenShots Oracle CX Sales Screenshots
