I've been using People.ai for a bit now, and I've been consistently impressed. I use it to track how my team is doing, how my clients are doing, and how I'm doing. I can create custom dashboards with any metric I want to see. I can set goals, and they'll track my progress towards those goals. I can set up competitions between my team, and they'll tell me who's winning and who's losing. You can share these dashboards with your team, which means that everyone can see how everyone else is doing.

SalesPanda is great. It's a multifaceted user-friendly platform to find your target market, determine interest, and help drive your market. I've reviewed a LOT of software on this same platform and while I can sing the praises of this all day, it's not much different from the other software that's already readily available. I will say this is great for a mid-size agency, as there's no option to purchase separate components separately, and that can be a bit pricey.
Read full review Pros Their Deal Room presents times when you are multi-threaded, engaged with executives, and have an upcoming meeting scheduled rather than stalking your reps calendar and salesforce activities. They allow you to create areas performance dashboard with custom KPIs you want to measure Read full review They offer a free trial – I know this sounds pretty basic, but not all software offers that. Especially in a market saturated with marketing campaign software, this is a HUGE plus. SalesPanda offers training through online webinars – there isn't a need to go searching around on YouTube if you don't understand something. Additional plus! Their customer support is top-notch. If we ever ran into an issue, we were never on hold for longer than a couple of minutes. Excellent attention to customer care. Read full review Cons People.ai has a robust platform, however, this requires sales reps to log into one more platform and the People.ai platform is not customizable for selecting what can be viewed by users. If People.ai were to make the features in their platform available in Salesforce it would be a huge win for leveraging the data they aggregate. Hoping an API will soon be on the Roadmap Time Spent. People.ai uses some logic to attribute values on the "time spent" on the activities being captured. They did improve their meeting aggregations so that they were not "double counting" time when multiple meetings were booked in the same time slot for a rep. Email time spent still seems to have some errors as the time spent on emails can show in excess of the weekly working hours of the reps. Read full review We didn't like that SalesPanda came as an entire package (which can be pricey). It would be nice if you could purchase different parts of it separately. There's no A/B testing. This is something others offer that SalesPanda doesn't. While customer service is great, their business hours are a little wonky. I'd prefer to have 24/7 customer care rather than 8-5.

The easiest comparison would be to email automation vendors like a
, Outreach, or
. But People.ai doesn't have a template email send like a sequence or cadence feature you would find with them. It is more of a compliment to the email automation vendors than a competitor in my opinion. We want our SDRs to have the ability run sizable outbound campaigns so they still use Outreach. However, we deactivated the Outreach activity sync and run activity syncing through People.ai. If someone gets added into the email CC, People.ai will grab that person and create them as a contact against the matching Salesforce account. For our Sales reps, we want them to have the ability to track opens, link clicks, and send templated emails so we have them use
. Again, we deactivated the Salesforce sync and use People.ai syncing. This is a great way to automate the pain away from creating Opportunity Contact Roles and create all relevant contacts in Salesforce from CC's on emails to people added last minute on a calendar invite. My favorite part is how it ingests data directly from Google and doesn't allow a Sales Rep to not to sync an activity to Salesforce, it happens automagically

is super affordable, but very basic with what you get. SalesPanda is similar, and while that may be appealing to a smaller company, I would say take the leap and spend the extra money. SalesPanda isn't perfect, but it's the best bang for your proverbial buck. Our clients have been very happy with the results.

This is near impossible to measure without this tool. Marketing data is always current so we email the right people vs relying on my teams (Sales, Marketing, anyone) to be data stewards. Read full review SalesPanda has given us a stable platform to advertise our clients' strengths through its easy-to-use content marketing tool They have templates that allow you to market initiatives to help boost productivity (by saving time). Definitely a plus. SalesPanda focuses on content and generating leads...we use it to post our clients content to blogs, case studies, etc. Very nice! Read full review ScreenShots
