Overall Satisfaction with Outreach

Outreach is used by our SDRs to build sequences, send emails, and make calls to prospects. It is only used by our sales department, I believe. Outreach automates a lot of our sales activities. Without it or a similar tool, we would be manually sending each email and manually dialing each phone call. The way they have sequences set up makes it easy to get everything done all in one app.
  • Sequences--easy to create (time consuming, though)
  • Snippets and templates are easy to create and use
  • Dialing through outreach is quick and easy
  • Tasks are organized in a way that makes them easy to stay on top of
  • There could be a better way to filter out irrelevant prospects that end up in there
  • I would like better notifications to prevent too many emails from going out at the same time
  • A better way to handle failed email sends--better notifications and suggestions on how to fix
  • Helped me to book almost all my meetings
  • Keeps me organized and caught up on sequence tasks
  • Helps me analyze what has worked in the past

After getting familiar with how the app is set up and how it works, it is very usable. When I first was introduced to Outreach during my onboarding, it was confusing--particularly with out it relates to Salesforce, Gmail, etc. Once I got used to adding people to sequences, I got a better feel for the app.
I haven't had to use Outreach support before but I havent heard anything bad about it so far.
Outreach is very well suited for an outbound sales team that needs a tool to automate and organize their activity. It becomes a hub for all things SDR and is an outbound source of truth.

Outreach is less suited for marketing teams wanting to do mass email touches. It is more geared toward smaller batches and more personalization.
