We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Freshsales is a single solution CRM designed for high-growth, high-velocity sales teams. The software includes integrated phone and email, user behaviour tracking, and lead scoring on one platform. Users can track events and manage a visual sales pipeline, as well as view custom reports and analytics. Email tracking features enable users to know when and how many times an email was opened, or a link was clicked on. Users can effectively engage with prospects by targeting the next set of email actions, and create personalised sales campaigns from email templates. Insightful email metrics tell users which emails are performing well and which aren’t. The Awaiting Response feature automatically lists contacts that need to be replied to. Freshsales enables direct calling with a simple click on a contact’s phone number. The solution records the entire conversation history including email conversations in one place. Users can add notes, schedule tasks, as well as make appointments. Freshsales also offers personalised welcome and voicemail messages for greeting customers. In-depth customer insights on prospects allow users to plan relevant conversations, and keep track of touch points using the activity timeline. Freshsales collects data and segments activities based on a contact’s behaviour. Users can get perspective on leads with advanced lead scoring, and prioritises important follow-ups. The visual sales pipeline provides complete visibility of deals across various stages.
