Overall Satisfaction with Outreach

We adopted Outreach in our enterprise sales organization when the pandemic forced everybody to become an "inside" sales team. I was experienced with Salesloft and this was an exciting opportunity to implement their leading competitor, Outreach.io.
  • CRM Integrations
  • Integration with Outlook
  • Strong user experience
  • Sequence (cadence) editing
  • Team reporting
  • CRM Integration
  • Easy to use interface
  • Sales Sequences
  • Outlook integration
  • We have not been able to document across-the-board productivity gains
The Outreach user interface and integrations with Outlook email are best in class. The integration with Outlook is seamless and allows you to perform many tasks directly from Outlook without having to engage with the Outreach app.

I've implemented both Outreach and Salesloft. They are very similar tools, and my conclusion is that Outreach beats Salesloft in many areas, while being behind in a few. The Outreach user interface and Outlook integrations are best in class. In fact, the Outlook integration may be the #1 reason to choose Outreach. It's seamless, and allows you to perform many tasks directly from Outlook without having to engage with the Outreach app.

It is the administrative functions where Outreach is a little behind. The CRM integrations are great. No complaints there. But creating cadences (sequences) is a particular chore. Copying and changing the order of steps is a much more painful process than with Salesloft. Also the out-of-the-box reporting and analytics functions are average at best.

However, for the main audience -- the sales users -- Salesloft is a great sales automation tool, and probably the one I'd recommend first.

Outreach Training

Lots of attention from the Outreach training team, with a great willingness to customize to our needs. To be clear, you get out what you put in. If you don't work with them, you'll get cookie-cutter training. But we asked for a lot of customization, and they delivered what we asked for.

Outreach Support

Always responsive, even just when sending a generic email to 'support@'.

Quick Initial Response
There were many times when I had questions or challenges with setup and programming of Outreach integrations or sequences. The Outreach team was always responsive, whether I was reaching out to our implementation specialist, the trainer, or just generically emailing support@outreach.io. For the integration with our CRM team, there was always a very knowledgeable person on the call from Outreach to answer questions.
