Salestools.io works perfectly for companies using a CRM or whatever other CRM software involving customer data. Also, Salestools.io is perfect to deal with the creation of an outreach campaign in an automatic way. You won't need to do follow-up yourself. However, it needs some training to work with it perfectly. In general is a great outbound sales tool.

It is very well suited in the role I perform at the call center. It helps keep all of the lead's information together all in one place so we can perform the most streamlined and easiest possible transition for the lead from us to the campus. There aren't any areas of least appropriateness that I can think of.

Cons

Salestools.io

  • You can't have custom fields, so forget about having customized emails other than the basic Name, Title, Company.
  • Salestools is plenty of super cool features, all (at least all the ones we used) are buggy and unusable in the end.
  • Can't have blacklisted addresses and domains.
  • Support will take days to respond, especially if you report a bug (it seems they will work extra hard to fix the bug, and then tell you that it didn't exist in the first place)
  • Virtually every other feature has bugs.

VanillaSoft

  • It really needs an "undo" button. I can't tell you how many times I was typing notes etc and hit a wrong button and all was gone so I had to start over.
  • This may be the way we have it set up....we have term codes which are how the callers terminate a call they were on. They finish the call, then type notes in the notepad section of what happened, then they terminate the call. But there are times that I need to go onto a record and just leave a note but don't need to terminate it as anything. If there is a way to do that, it would make my life a lot easier.

Response time was acceptable for the relatively few problems any of our users may have encountered. Fortunately, such occasions were rare.

Alternatives Considered

Salestools.io

We have been trying KLENTY mainly, however, the Prospector of Salestools.io is quite superior. For both cases, the preparation of campaigns are not as easy as it sounds, but as soon as you do the first, it will be easier for your business. Salestools.io has a better and easier interface and the webpage is superb. If you are looking just for follow-up, PLENTLY with doing, but if you need to find a prospect, Salestools.io is the service you need.

I have not used any other products like VanillaSoft. Since I have been with my company we have only operated with VanillaSoft. I assume this is because of the many benefits that come with working with VanillaSoft and lack of issues experienced over the years. I hope to continue with it.

  • VanillaSoft has drastically reduced my expenses associated with prospecting (fuel, car maintenance, etc.).
  • I was able to make a profit during the COVID shutdown, in a time where I would have continued to have overhead and no income whatsoever.
  • I made 6 appointments today where generally I would have made 6 appointments in a week.
