We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution helps me to structure and track marketing and sales emails."
"If we are having any difficulties, I can easily reach out to support executives and have a resolution. I am not sure if we paid for the technical support."
"The most valuable feature is probably automating the system. I can send mass emails to pretty much all my contacts or certain ones that meet the demographic requirements. I've used this one and one other CRM with an auto sales company. From my experience, just the ease of use and the user interface on HubSpot is phenomenal. It's really simple and easy to navigate the program. The functionality is phenomenal, and not just the Microsoft Office part but also with LinkedIn Sales Navigator. It's pretty nice."
"The most valuable features are the reports, overall usability, and ease of use."
"It's my understanding that the initial setup is a straightforward process."
"It provides good support for really large databases."
"The initial setup was straightforward."
"It would be ideal if there was a way to forward a notification or create notifications for non-HubSpot users."
"The upcoming tasks feature could be better. With HubSpot, whenever I put the contact information into Microsoft Office or Microsoft Outlook, it automatically inputs it into HubSpot. For example, it keeps telling me to contact my Solaris representative as an upcoming task. I've tried changing the contact in it to "not a lead," but it keeps sending me that notification."
"The search and questions aren't as intuitive as I would expect from a platform like this."
"The solution does not enable one to know with certainty if another opened an email he had sent."
"HubSpot is mainly for enterprise clients and there is a lot of competition. There are better solutions, such as Eloqua and Marketo. This solution needs to improve the analytics for social media monitoring to a level that it can compete with other solutions available in the market. There are some limitations with the features compared to other solutions."
"The solution could improve by having a more user-friendly interface."
"This product hasn't kept up to date on features."
"We are on an annual license for this solution. There have many different versions to meet the needs of their customers, such as professional enterprise and basic versions. They charge for the particular feature or components which are available in the license you have."
"I believe an individual license costs $50 per month."
