Overall Great CRM

Score 8 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • It helps you automate your onboarding process for new leads.
  • It has lots of integrations with other apps, so you can interact with other things like calendars and calls.
  • It's pretty easy to set sequences so the platform automatically follows up with people for you. This is not only helpful for your sales pipeline, but also for client communication when working on a project that requires their input.
  • Their tech support is pretty bad. I think I get a helpful answer maybe 20-30% of the time. I wish they would actually think about the problem and try to find a solution instead of sending a scripted or another completely unhelpful answer.

Pros and Cons

  • Separate leads from contacts - this ensures you build good pipelines.
  • Allows you to email marketing campaigns so you can do everything through one system.
  • The email limit is small - only 500 per user. This makes it challenging to run big campaigns.
  • It brings into the CRM any contact that is emailing your email address that is linked to the account.

Freshsales is A Phenomenal Choice For Lead And Prospect Database Management

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Freshsales does predictive strength of a lead thing very well. By assigning each lead a score to how many times and in what ways they have been contacted I am able to see at one glance how hot or cold a lead is and where they are at in their buying process
  • Fresh sales offers an on board dialer that is an effective tool to be able to do out bound dialing and to use as a way for your clients to get a hold of you!
  • I really like how Freshsales comes at database management and how relational every aspect of the overall database it is.
  • I think if the outbound phone tool was a true predictive dialer and allowed me to load a list of numbers and just tell it to go by hitting a button that would make my job easier.
  • I wish that Freshsales was a little bit more intuitive with some aspects of their GUI.
  • I think that Freshsales could use a lesson from the likes of Five9 or Call Fire when it comes to the types of reporting that it can execute.

Pros and Cons

  • It has a comprehensive set of tools and gives me options for how I interact with prospects and clients.
  • It syncs both ways with email, which is a big timesaver.
  • It is easy to set up, and support has been very helpful.
  • If anything, there may be too many options. I love the features but sometimes it can be a challenge to work quickly.
  • I would like to see more flexibility in what fields I choose to use at the contact and lead level.
  • I would like to see more room to add research and notes on accounts. But it works well in the current version.

Pros and Cons

  • It has a really simple UX and UI.
  • It integrates really well with our softphone solution (Freshcaller).
  • The process of converting leads into customers has been really important to our database management and growth as a department.
  • Needs more robust prospecting features via email.
  • The integrations with outside email providers, such as Mailchimp, could be a bit more intelligent.
  • I would like to see a cleaner handoff between Freshdesk and Freshsales as far as management of customer data is concerned.

Freshsales is the best CRM out there for SMBs

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Easy To Use - Very intuitive and modern UI.
  • Great Customer Support - Every page on the CRM has support articles that are recommended via their chat widget which are immensely helpful. If the articles do not cut it, then the customer support agent is available in 5 to 10 mins via chat. Other channels like email and call are always there but never reached a stage where I had to email or call them. Chat always did the trick.
  • Comprehensive Feature Set - I am on the Garden plan it does what we need as an SMB and more.
  • Value for Money - The same feature set would be offered at a higher plan by the competitor.
  • Lead Score Calculation - This is unintuitive right now. This needs to be clarified on how one can reliably set up this metric.
  • Tracking open clicks if there are multiple links in the email body. Currently, it only says the lead clicked on a link. But if you have multiple links then you would want to know which link.
  • This is maybe too much to ask, but the ability to adjust the Row height and column width to see maximum content in one window. Something like a compact view that Gmail offers.
  • Chrome Plugin - We can create a lead but we cannot edit the lead details from the plugin. It would be helpful if we can edit the lead details from the plugin.
  • Tracking is possible only if the email is sent from with the CRM. It should also take place if sent from Gmail inbox.

Pros and Cons

  • Freshsales API added into Freshdesk synchronizes the data across the two platforms.
  • The integrations work really well: calendars, contact, and emails in Google and Office 365 are automatically synchronized both ways.
  • Good email templates for easy scheduling of email marketing campaigns.
  • Fair pricing options.
  • Prompt and efficient support team.
  • The reminders are not detailed enough, for example, it is not possible to set up a notification when the lead has not responded for a set amount of time.
  • The more advances workflows are possible only with the help of third-party tools (Zapier).
  • It takes time to list through several pages of data.
