What is Pipedrive?

Managing leads and deals from an Excel sheet might work for a short period of time, but it's mostly a hack. What your company needs, no matter the size, is a CRM.

A CRM is a Customer Relationship Management tool, usually in the form of an app that allows companies to properly manage interactions with potential and current customers. Companies of all sizes, including small ones, benefit from integrating a CRM into their tool stack.

Options abound online. But we believe Pipedrive is one of the best out there. It's not just a CRM, it helps you, among other things:

  • Manage leads and deals
  • Track communications
  • Automate tasks
  • Generate insights and reports
