Overall Satisfaction

  • Delivery of video is significantly better than other options like GoToMeeting since it avoids upload latency.
  • Tracking of follow-ups is a powerful analytical tool letting salespeople know if the prospect is still engaged after the meeting.
  • Recording of sessions is helpful for training purposes.
  • Storage of many presentations provides a central repository for documents across a team.
  • Doesn't handle slide builds very well, so you have to create multiple slides rather than 1-slide builds.
  • Difficult to load new slides while already presenting.
  • More effective meetings leads to increased sales.
  • Analytics tracking improves forecasting through better data on prospect engagement.
Very effective tool for a sales team.
I highly recommend ClearSlide. They were not far out of Beta when we started using it and it's already a great service. I expect it will continue to improve as they grow.

Product Usage

15 - Sales, Account Management, Video Production, Implementation, Marketing
  • ClearSlide enables sales people to manage meetings remotely, sharing slides, videos, PDF documents, and even live web demos. It also stores documents in the cloud with analytics tracking, so when sending follow-ups to prospects the salesperson gets reports on who's looked at the follow-ups. It also enables recording of calls for training purposes.
  • We originally chose Clearslide primarily for delivering video in our presentations, however one big benefit was the ability to track "attachments" by sending them as Clearslide URLs. By sending content through the platform we were able to track opens and how people engaged with content we normally would have just attached as PDFs for example.

Evaluation and Selection

GoToMeeting and SalesCrunch were the competitors we reviewed but ClearSlide was further along in developing their video solution than both. ClearSlide also appeared to have more market momentum and growth than SalesCrunch at the time.

Training

  • Online training
  • Self-taught
Yes, it's very intuitive and most of our team didn't attend any training sessions.

Support

Very responsive to our team and sought out our feedback.

Usability

It's very intuitive and simple to setup and use. The only negatives are build slides and the ability to change a presentation on the fly with a prospect.

Reliability

It wasn't 100% but it was better than our experience with GoToMeeting.

Integration

  • Salesforce and Eloqua or Marketo would be helpful.
Not sure.

Vendor Relationship

Very easy to work with and pleasantly persistent in following up.
Paid a monthly service fee that was slightly above GoToMeeting but not excessively so.
