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.

It is well suited for any sales department, to try to get ahold of the person you are trying to get ahold of. Playbooks has increased the number of decision makers that I can get ahold of on a day to day basis. This tool would probably be less suited for people that do not have calls to make outside of the company.

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.

  • The ability to filter specific plays or pieces of information so that it's more user-friendly for the overall organization. Essentially, more room to customize the organization of accounts and how you're working them.
  • The initial onboarding process of accounts results in high levels of tasks - the ability to break these down in an easier way to help with time management would be helpful.

It only took a day to get comfortable with Playbooks. The ease of use and overall usability is fantastic in the sense that it's pretty straightforward once you get enough repetitions in the tool. I also like all of the videos and resources available if support is needed

Never had to use the support team, which probably means the product works well!

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.

The products I was using aren't available in the listings. I was using Replyify, which is a great tool for email automation, but it lacks the ability to call out of the system and integration with Dynamics. Overall, that's the biggest advantage over it's competitors. Seamless integration with MSDynamics, and a unified platform to complete all of your sales development tasks.

  • The tool has given me the ability to make cold calls and catch up on deals quickly when I only have a short amount of time.
  • It has helped me reach out to more of my whitespace accounts than I otherwise would have been able to.
