Postwire is best used in any type of situation where you're trying to deliver data sheets, content or videos to customer or clients in one please. Instead of sending multiple emails with a lot of stuff attached, this is a great place to store it. It looks professional and often times, the client appreciates not having to look through all of their emails.

Frankly, if I can do something in Scratchpad instead of Salesforce, I prefer Scratchpad because it's faster, easier, simpler, with a much more readable and useable interface. Salesforce has been getting requests to allow font size modification for over a decade and hasn't even done that. That's what sent me looking for something like Scratchpad. I sort of view it as a much more user-friendly UI to layover SF. It's faster and less frustrating than SF for frequent daily activities. It's great for creating notes and tracking tasks at a basic level in a much more user friendly environment than Salesforce. But it interacts w/ SF, which is great!

Cons
Social Communications Company
  • Enough people don't know about Postwire, and I think that because of that, prospective clients often disregard these links as spam.

  • When pulling in Salesforce reports, it doesn't have full ability to do grouping/sorting.
  • When looking at pipeline view there's not an ability to expand the default view to see more than 5 people per group.
  • It'd be nice if comments would go as a task rather than a buzz.

Unfortunately, the decision to renew does not fall on me. However, I have told the decision maker that I believe that we utilized Postwire incorrectly when we started. I believe that rather than sending links to our Postwire pages to prospective clients in our introduction email, they would be better suited to send after connecting and agreeing to send them additional information. That way, you can explain that it will be in the format of a Postwire link due to it's ease of use.

Clearside has less features and is very simple. It's convenient because it comes free with Sales Navigator. There is limited functionality and you can only have a certain number of different clear slides accessible at once. There is also a lot of other random LinkedIn content that shows up on ClearSlide, but I'm not a fan. I prefer paying with Postwire over free with LinkedIn.

It doesn't. Scratchpad is more agile and much easier to use as a seller managing a large patch with lots of opportunities. SAP is robust but is far more complicated and involves a lot more inputs to get the same outputs that you can get with Scratchpad in half the time and effort.
