Powerful CRM Solution for Sales Teams

5.0 2 weeks ago New

Comments: As a comprehensive CRM solution, it has transformed the way our sales team operates. Centralizing customer data, streamlining processes, and gaining valuable insights have significantly improved our efficiency and effectiveness. Although the initial setup and customization required effort, the long-term benefits have been substantial. Salesforce's commitment to continuous innovation and their robust partner ecosystem further solidify its position as a market leader in the CRM space. Sales Cloud becomes an indispensable tool for driving efficiency and revenue growth. I'd recommend it to any serious sales team.

Pros:

Salesforce Sales Cloud is incredibly powerful and customizable. The opportunity tracking and pipeline management tools are top-notch, giving you complete visibility into your sales process. The mobile app allows me to stay productive on-the-go. I love the integration with other apps like Gmail, calendars, etc. It really consolidates everything I need for sales into one platform. The reporting and dashboards provide excellent insights.

Cons:

The learning curve can be quite steep, especially for more advanced functionality. New users will likely need training and support. The pricing model with multiple tiers and add-ons can get very expensive as you scale up, especially for smaller businesses. Some find the interface a bit clunky and dated compared to newer CRMs.

This CRM is incredibly versatile

5.0 last month New

Comments: I regret not discovering its capabilities sooner, as we would have transitioned to it for onboarding much earlier. I wasn't aware that you could create custom objects that link to an account record and set up as many fields as needed.

Pros:

Our onboarding team relies on Salesforce for ushering in new customers. It helps us monitor communications, activities, and task completion statuses, while also facilitating the creation of reports and dashboards to visualize account progress during onboarding. Salesforce stands out as the top-notch choice for customization and trackability. We're able to configure fields and gather data as per specific workflows, and even automate tasks for smoother operations.

Cons:

Salesforce can be a bit sluggish and cumbersome on occasion. We had to undergo training from a Salesforce expert to implement the systems we required, indicating that it may not be the most user-friendly option out there. However, this complexity is often inherent in such a robust system.

salesforce is not meant for banking

1.0 last month New

Pros:

it is easy to read sometimes and the different colors are useful.

Cons:

it is not compatible with our software at times and it doesnt have all of the capabilities we need. any software updates cause MAJOR fails for customers. the system is too basic for real time updates and cant always mirror what the customers see online in their accounts. this software is for less involved purposes. i dont think it can keep up

Great tool for different type and size of businesses

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: My overall experience was positive. You can always find solutions to your business needs even if you developed or if you need a third party tool from the App exchange. The integrations have a wide range of options and the development is not that expensive compared with other tools.

Pros:

The ability to set up the required processes and automations adapted to the size of your business, with a flexible platform that can grow with you in pricing and coming from the most simple set up to start to get a complexity of a mid size and enterprise business. Count with a massive amount of partners that helps in the set-up with multiple prices and the fact that you can get a team inhouse that can help to mantain and develop on Salesforce with some training.

Cons:

Maybe, the fact that the customer success sometimes do not responded on time to issues. The commercials are a bit aggressive when negotiating the renewals. The Salesforce ecosystem pricing push hard other tools that are better connected but the value for money is complex to be justified.

Alternatives Considered: Zoho CRM and SugarCRM

Reasons for Switching to Salesforce Sales Cloud: Because of the potential to grow as my business grow and the ability to implement custom needs from our business. Connection to multiple other tools that help us to concentrate all the operational actions to cover the entire Customer live value cycle.
