LinkPoint Connect

LinkPoint is great for people who spend a lot of time working inside outlook. It allows you to update and add records directly from outlook and it has some built-in duplicate prevention which is nice if you don’t have duplicate prevention measures in place. It’s fast and stable. A lot of our users were unable to use SFO due to it crashing outlook.

Pros

LinkPoint Connect

  • Very easy to use.
  • Easy to tag to contacts, accounts, and opportunities separately and at the same time.
  • Minimally invasive into the rest of my workflow.

SalesDirector.ai

  • I can easily see if there is communication occurring between the sales rep and the appropriate contacts at the prospect company. I can quickly see if the communication stream is a mutual back and forth conversation or if it is mostly a one-way stream from the rep to the prospect. If it is mostly a one-way conversation, this tells me something isn't right about this opportunity.
  • The system looks at this communication and using AI, it highlights if it interprets any negative sentiment from the prospect allowing the rep or the sales manager to dig deeper into the opportunity and see if they can discover the reason for this negative response and correct it if possible.
  • The software "learns" from previous successful deals we have closed and uses this information to alert us if a deal has been in a particular sales stage for longer than similar deals. And it learns who is the business decision maker or technical decision maker is for previously closed deals and points it out to the rep that they should make contact with this same position in the target company.
  • The software coaches sales reps on actions that should be taken, based on our sales process, at each stage of the sales cycle. And it does so without feeling like its looking over your shoulder, by recommending the rep send a "confirmation of needs" email once the deal is moved into the 30% stage.

Cons

LinkPoint Connect

  • Installation is a bit tricky for non tech savvy users.
  • Ability to sort/filter search results when looking for additional records.
  • The ability to mass create multiple contacts/leads from an email would be nice.

LinkPoint Connect

Cirrus Insight was a huge fail for us as it searched and pulled in matching records looking at all custom and standard email fields. We have a lot of emails fields that contained employee email addresses (for notifications) so it pulled in records that didn’t match making the results hard to search through.

SalesDirector is more comprehensive and advanced than the add-ins I've tried.

Return on Investment

LinkPoint Connect

  • It provides transparency into your outbound communication with customers.

  • Positive. We have better insights into our deals. We can see when deals are getting bogged down, or when a deal may not close, even before the sales rep recognizes this.
  • It makes it much easier to accurately call your monthly and quarterly forecasts.
  • Our sales managers use it for their weekly one-on-one meetings with their rep and virtually no additional work is required of the rep or manager.
