People.ai, Inc.
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.

If you use a CRM (Salesforce, Hubspot, etc.), and a work communication system (Slack, Teams), this product will be extremely helpful

Pros
People.ai, Inc.
  • 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

  • Troops does a great job of bringing efficiency to the workplace. I am able to jump right to certain deals and learn details of the deals that are coming in straight from Slack. Getting all that info quickly and all in one place has been crucial for our team.
  • Troops does an awesome job of notifying me when signals are shown in my accounts. It lets me focus my attention on the more important accounts, and helps me find what accounts are in the news.

Cons
People.ai, Inc.
  • 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.

  • One thing I would like is more customization regarding the notifications I receive. Letting a user make edits to the certain notifications they get could be nice.
  • Troops opens a new tab/browser every time I click on a new lead. It makes things difficult to organize with multiple tabs open.

Alternatives Considered
People.ai, Inc.
The easiest comparison would be to email automation vendors like a SalesLoft, Outreach, or Groove. 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 Groove. 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

We looked at the native Salesforce "integration" with Slack, but it was brief. Troops was so much stronger that it wasn't much of a consideration.

Return on Investment
People.ai, Inc.
  • Time back for the whole team. We don't log calls anymore, we just work.
  • Great insight into who on your team may be wasting time with low-impact customers. 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.
