Likelihood to Recommend

Drift

It is recommended for any company; it is a comprehensive tool for teams interested in strengthening business management and improving efficiency. It allows you to automatically schedule support with customers, thus saving a lot of time. Large companies can establish a chat and communication between potential customers, answering their questions quickly; allow you to monitor and track your leads and new leads, to make it fully functional, it has a very affordable value so that it can be used in all companies, it will not affect their economic aspects.

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.

Pros

Drift

  • Bot - which is an out of the box feature of Drift. It is pre-configured for basic conversations and works really good. Business processes can be easily incorporated in Drift with it amazing user interface which makes it even more powerful.
  • Playbooks - is also one of the great feature of Drift. Playbooks acts as guides. The modification of playbooks is super easy. Also, building them is also an easy task and storage and presentation is automatically taken care by Drift, itself.
  • Integration with salesforce - Today, enormous number of companies use Salesforce and integration with it is supported out of the box. Therefore, no extra effort is required to make the integration happen. Just set the right URLs with credentials, and you're all set.

Cons

Drift

  • Whenever there have been challenges with the product, the team has always been hungry to fix the issues that we raise.
  • 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.

Sugar Connect (formerly Collabspot)

  • The payment plan that Collabspot provides does not have many advantages over the free plan.
  • The scores do not reflect the true assessment towards clients and candidates.
  • Mail templates have an outdated design.

Usability

Drift

Based on 3 answers
Drift was extremely easy for both our demand gen team and SDR to jump right into. It was feature rich and purpose-built for marketers—it was remarkably easy to connect our marketing automation, CRM, and more to the platform and get everything to work together. Now the ability to create digital experiences and conversation landing pages is democratized—empowering our team to do better work and provide better prospect/customer experience.

The support team was very responsive but at the end of the day they took a long time to fix our issue. The issue did get fixed, though, so that is what matters. Very nice people who are there to help in any way they can.

Alternatives Considered

Drift

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.

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.
